Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 23 on PBS

Season 2 of Find Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr, premieres on Tuesday night and features three well-known figures who knew almost nothing about their fathers' histories – Stephen King, Gloria Reuben and Courtney B. Vance.

Here's a clip from Stephen King's reveal. 

The website also has several features you might want to check out:
·    Your Stories -- Every family has a unique genealogical journey, just waiting to be unlocked. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. asks you to share your own by submitting our online form
·    Episodes – full episodes of previous shows
·    Video – also has links to full episodes as well as clips and previews for the coming season
·    Behind the Scenes – all kinds of helpful resources
·    Classroom – a collection of Lesson Plans on various topics using video clips from Finding Your Roots

Get your comfy TV viewing spot ready, check out the website for your local listings (for me it automatically brought up the UNC-TV (and its various channels) with show times and station details), sit back and relax, enjoy and learn ....
