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.

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.
