For me, truthfully, documentaries about African American genealogy begin and end with African American Lives 1 & 2. I didn’t really get into NBC’s “Who Do You Think You Are” during its first run. This year, one of the show’s (which premieres February 4th at 8pm/7 C) first celebs is Vanessa Williams. As it turns out Ms. Williams family history yields some genealogical gems worthy of prime time television:

a visit to the national archives

She had me at “United States Colored Troops”, so I guess I’ll be watching……

UPDATE: Really, really good stuff!  I’ll be watching every Friday (or at least on DVR)!
