Finding Your Roots

The Official Companion to the PBS Series

By Henry Louis Gates & David Altshuler
Narrated by Bill Andrew Quinn / 14 hours 49 minutes

Who are we, and where do we come from? The fundamental driveto answer these questions is at the heart of Finding Your Roots, the companion book to the hit PBS documentaryseries. As Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. shows us, the tools ofcutting-edge genomics and deep genealogical research now allow us to learn moreabout our roots, looking further back in time than ever before. Gates’investigations take on the personal and genealogical histories of more thantwenty luminaries, including Congressman John Lewis, actor RobertDowney Jr., CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, former secretary of laborLinda Chavez, and comedian Margaret Cho. Interwoven with their moving storiesof immigration, assimilation, strife, and success is practical information foramateur genealogists just beginning archival research on their own families’roots. Gates also details the advances in genetic research now available to thepublic. The result is an illuminating exploration of who we are, how we losttrack of our roots, and how we can find them again.
