Tune in to your local PBS station on September 12 to catch David Lambert on the popular show History Detectives. Lambert is a research genealogist and librarian at the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS).
In chasing down the answers to his latest mystery, Dr. Tufuku Zuberi of History Detectives sought Lambert's advice in establishing the identity of a man listed by the name of Paul Cuffee on an original Falmouth, Massachusetts muster roll. Was this the famous African-American businessman and whaling captain? Or, was it someone else? Tune into History Detectives on September 12 to find out. (Check your local listings for times). The episode is expected to re-air later in the season. Visit http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives for more information.
