'Genealogy Roadshow': DNA and public records do the dirty work of tracing family trees

23 September 2013 1:20 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

On Mondays from Sept. 23 to Oct. 14 on PBS (check local listings), the new series "Genealogy Roadshow" travels to Nashville, Detroit, San Francisco and Austin, Texas, to see if stories passed down in people's families are actually true.

Experts in genealogy, history and DNA then use family heirlooms, letters, pictures, historical documents and other clues to verify the family legend.

Excutive producer Stuart Krasnow tells Zap2it, "Our casting process is that we really have put out outreach beforehand, and we did that through the PBS station, since we are a new show. These are very specific questions [that people have]. It's not just, 'Oh, tell me everything about my roots, where I came from.' It's really, 'We want to know if we are related to Abraham Lincoln,' for instance.

"Then our researchers and genealogists, along with our DNA collection, really go through and try to prove that claim or not prove that claim. »
