GENEALOGY ROADSHOW
New Orleans – Cabildo

Air date: Tues., Jan. 13, 8:00 pm

 

Follow a diverse cast of participants on an emotional journey that uses history and science to uncover their fascinating family stories. Each individual’s past will link to a larger community history, revealing the rich cultural tapestry of America. The programs feature participants from three American cities – St. Louis, New Orleans and Philadelphia – who want to explore a genealogical mystery.

 

New Orleans – Cabildo
A team of genealogists uncovers fascinating family stories at the famous Cabildo, home of the Louisiana State Museum. A couple whose ancestors hail from the same small Italian town explore the chance they may be related; a woman is desperate to find out who committed a gruesome murder in her ancestor’s past; a home held by one family for more than a century renders a fascinating story; and a woman discovers the difficult journey her ancestor took on the path to freedom from slavery.
