I am happy to share these stories about the guests in Season 8 of Finding Your Roots. I am honored that our show has inspired people from all over the country. Finding Your Roots and the American Experience show that we are all immigrants. We may come from different countries, but we are still the same at a genetic level. Each of us is different.
We all have a story to tell and the goal of FINDING YOUR ROOTS is to let those ancestors tell their stories. In a time when our country has seen so many bad things, it is important to remind people that we all share the same feelings. That so many talented people made this season happen in the face of a disease is a good thing. In the most challenging of times, it is comforting–and inspiring–to know where you come from. And to reaffirm the unity of all Americans.

In Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr Season 8 they use new technology and old-school tracing to find it. Along the way, this series collects family trees from all over the world. It starts in one country and then goes to another. In each episode, people will meet the ancestors of guests. They’ll learn about their lives. People can watch war heroes and criminals, farmers and factory workers, all the time struggling with tough conditions. People in your family might have different stories. But they are still part of your family and so they are a part of history. That is why it is important to learn about the people in our families and not just about famous people or important events.
