Myths, Legends and Lies: The Dangers of Family History Research
Can you handle the truth?
Family history research is a burgeoning pursuit thanks to TV programs
like “Who Do You Think You Are?”, “Genealogy Roadshow,” and “Finding
Your Roots.” But before you jump in, have you asked yourself if you’re
fully prepared for what you might discover?

Together we will be opening closets to expose skeletons, peeking under
the lid of Pandora’s Box, and shining light on the ethical dilemmas you
may encounter in the quest to find your missing ancestors. They may have
good reasons why they’re hiding from you.
