GenFriends Genealogy Chat Show : Relative Race Season 8 Day 4!


The panel Melissa Barker, Laura Hedgecock, Shelley Murphy, Mary Kircher Roddy and I join together to chat about what happened on Day 4. From the tears, frustration, and joy that were experienced by teams and viewers, we share our thoughts.  

Watch as Mary tells how she researched a death certificate shown on a past episode and was able to locate a family member and learn about her before she was revealed to viewers!

Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. This is my first time watching and I loved it! I was wishing I could be a part of the conversation. I am an adoptee myself, so, this season is very special to me. When Stephen was so happy to find people that looked like him, I could sooooo relate. And, I love that they are finding special relationships with siblings. I have not been that fortunate, for whatever reason. It used to break my heart, but, I am learning to live with it. But, it is so nice watching your conversation because you all are bringing up some of the same things I have wondered about. I look forward to keep watching.

    1. Thank you so much for watching! I hope you are able to find the answers you are seeking for your biological family. As a mother of both biological and adopted children, I understand the need to find those connections. Prayers.
