GenFriends: FYR-Episode 14-Why Ask Why?


The panel Melissa Barker, Dan Earl, Laura Hedgecock, Shelley Murphy, Mary Kircher Roddy, and I discuss the insights gleaned from Finding Your Roots Episode 14. Celebrities Lupita Nyong'o, Lidia Bastianich, and Scarlett Johansson discover their ancestor's involvement in national and local events. Relocation, name changes, and historical happenings can leave us asking "why?" And, asking "why" can lead us to records we hadn't considered, answers to our genealogy questions, and add richness to our family narrative. Watch as we share our thoughts about the episode and how asking "why" is a useful tool for locating information to help us climb our family tree.
