Follow a diverse cast of participants on an emotional journey that uses history and science to uncover their fascinating family stories.

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.
