  1. At first I was frustrated that he kept jumping around among the guests. I guess I wanted him to start at the top of a pedigree and move downward. By mid show I got use to the format and guess his approach would be more interesting to non genealogists.
    He finally got top some information that his guests didn’t know and I think that is what will generate interest. Finding the surprises.

  2. I couldn’t login to chat, but could hear some of it. Several people commented that Dr. Gates wasn’t showing the methodology. For non-genealogists, this would be tedious. Remember “Roots” wasn’t about the research, but the story. That being said, I do wish they would show some of the documents and say a bit about them. The Generations Project program does this, and I think WDYTYA will, as well. I loved the stories, and enjoy Gates programs.
