As seen on NBC! Stars trace their family roots through history. Fascinating" - The New York Times. "Brings history alive in a way rarely seen on television...satisfying emotional journeys" - The Philadelphia Inquirer.
To know who you are, you have to know where you came from. In this fascinating reality series, seven celebrities share their life-altering discoveries. Working with genealogists, historians, and researchers, they travel the world to uncover the secrets and surprises in their family trees.
Sarah Jessica Parker's (Sex and the City) search leads back to the Salem witch trials. Dallas Cowboys legend Emmitt Smith follows his slave ancestors to Benin. Lisa Kudrow (Friends) learns the truth of her great-grandmother's fate in the Holocaust. Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Glory) traces his family to battlefields in France and America. Brooke Shields (Suddenly Susan) unearths her royal connections. Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) explores the racy life of her grandmother. And Emmy-winning director Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X) meets a relative he didn't know he had.
Intriguing, moving, and ultimately uplifting, this series proves that genealogy is more than a pastime. It's a journey through history that changes everything.
