I tuned in to PBS last night to watch the first episode of Faces Of America. Overall, I thought it was a good show, though it is a little difficult to keep track of the details of all twelve of the people who are profiled. I really enjoyed the segments on Yo-Yo Ma and Kristi Yamaguchi. Some of the research seems quite impressive, and I would have liked to have seen a little more about how some of those documents were obtained. I think the show could have done four hours on any one of the twelve.
I read on another blog that one of the upcoming episodes will explore genetic genealogy and the show makes use of 23andme's service. That is exciting as that is a step I have been considering for several months.
