You might be interested in watching Oprah's Roots tonight on PBS in the United States. It will show the search for her ancestors and will also feature Tony Burroughs, a person mentioned often in this newsletter. He is also the author of Black Roots: A Beginners Guide to Tracing the African American Family Tree.
The program is being aired at 8:00 PM on my local PBS station although exact times of broadcast may vary from one station to another. Check your local listings to find the time of broadcast in your area.
