One Face of America

Nancy "Pearl" Emily Dunn Barham

She is my great grandma and one of the reasons I started searching for my roots

Susan Margaret "Maggie" Brashear Dunn

She is my great great grandma and she is the main reason I started searching for my roots.

They are the faces of America.  We all have a story and yours needs to be told.  You do not have to make it public but it is important to perserve your family history.
There is a new show called Faces of America on PBS where Henry Louis Gates, Jr. "explores the ancestry of 12 talented Americans".  The 2nd episode airs tonight on PBS at 7:00 pm. central.  You can watch the 1st episode online.  The show will on every Wednesday night until March 3rd. 
Enjoy.
Love,
Territory Mom

That would be neat to be able to trace your roots! I hope you do! For the rest of them. God bless.

Very interesting. My uncle started a family tree with the help of the internet.
