Tonight, Wednesday March 3, 2010 is the series finale for Faces of America on PBS. It’s been an interesting, but somewhat low key, overview of tracing the heritage of a variety of celebrities. I love seeing the family history background of a variety of people. For such a show the emphasis is naturally on the history that will be a neat part of the show. Yet it still show that in our family history quest, we all use the same types of records. And that until you delve into the records you just never know what you might find. That includes the exciting, quiet, highly mobile, bank robber, oft-married, married, unmarried, poor, rich, fighting, or ill ancestors or collateral lines.
