Yo, this is one of the best shows on TV. Even if you're not a huge fan of the guest, there's always a remarkable story hidden in the family tree.

I love this kind of stuff. It is mind porn. I love discovering the origin of things: words, names, people, ideas. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. does an amazing job with his documentaries. So informative! I'd love to discover my genealogy.
