Follow a diverse cast of participants on an emotional journey that uses history and science to uncover their fascinating family stories. Each individual’s past will link to a larger community history, revealing the rich cultural tapestry of America. Season 3 of GENEALOGY ROADSHOW features participants from six American cities—Albuquerque (May 17), Miami (May 24), Houston (May 31), Boston (June 14), Providence (June 21) and Los Angeles (June 28)—who want to explore a genealogical mystery.

“Albuquerque” - In this episode, a team of genealogists uncovers fascinating family stories at the Old Albuquerque Airport Terminal. A woman seeking a connection to a Native-American code talker learns that a missing branch of her family tree has been searching for her; a man is shocked to find out just how deep his New Mexican roots go; a woman finds out that her ancestor’s life was straight out of a Wild West tale; another questions her family connection to the explosive Trinity Test; one man is linked to a famous comic book heroine; and a woman looks to verify family lore of a connection to Pancho Villa.
