Re: Blair Underwood ancestry- SCOTT/HUMBLE

I've been reading this thread and finding it somewhat funny. First of all, why would anyone presume to know what Blair allowed to be shown? I know if I were he, my access to my family info would be limited. I don't understand why the general public thinks they have a right to know the details of a person's family history.

As was mentioned previously, there are only about 40 minutes of airtime in an hour show. As a celebrity, I know I would not allow the public to see much of my personal info.

I also see programs such as "Who Do You Think You Are" as more entertaining than informative. I think most of us who have been doing research will always find issues with these kinds of shows because we probably know more than the general public about genealogical research.

As for Ancestry.com, previously they used 23andMe as their testing lab. I think if that is who was used, more DNA info was omitted because it may have been too complicated for most who have not done DNA research to understand. Most folks just want to see the results and not the process of DNA testing.

Also, who knows who much information Blair already had about his family. The man is very intelligent as shown by his acceptance into Carnegie Mellon University where he was a Theater Arts Major. So please don't try to 2nd guess what was seen and why something were not seen.
