In Response To: Re: Blair Underwood ancestry- SCOTT/HUMBLE ()
I AGREE--- TV for the ratings and not a research blueprint. I did think it strange that they made NO efforts to locate likely slaveowners and skipped too quickly to conclusions, especially since they had a pretty good paper trail when they stopped following it and jumped to the wow-factor of using DNA to locate a cousin in Africa. It is, of course, a blatant plug for ancestry.
I always remind people that they can usually check it out for free at the library! Ancestry is great but a little pricey for someone who just wants to see what it does. Visit your local library and talk to your local experts and start your own experience there.
