If you're a person who's interested in seeing where people came from and what made them what they are today then this is definitely the show for you.
The show focuses on a different celebrity each episode whether if they're an actor, musician or athlete. You have them go around the country and sometimes the world looking up birth certificate, death certificates or whatever to find out what took place in the earlier generations of your family. A lot of times the ancestors of these celebrities were involved with some fairly significance moments in history.
Not the best show ever but it's an interesting watch for an hour at a time.
