@MaVolta  We finished season one, and were expecting season two to show up in our mailbox, but received a movie instead. Obviously I need to move seasons 2 & 3 up in ye olde Netflix queue. Whoops.

 

Fascinating the way they put these episodes together! Can't wait to catch up! Of course now I want a pro to unravel the mysteries of our French Canadian/Algonquin/Basque/Irish-keep-your-secrets-to-the-grave side of the family. Smiley Happy

@ASTRAEA - Yes, this was a good pairing, and then they turn out to be DNA "cousins".

 

It was amazing that family secrets ran so deep that Larry David did not know that his mother's birth name was Regina. But given the history provided, it was understable how they came to trust no one. Even Bernie Sanders remarked that the conditions in Europe between wars were much worse than he had imagined. The genealogists must have done a remarkable job to find those records in Europe. It sounded like a lot of painstaking research was done.

I've only watched "Finding Your Roots" a few times, enjoying each episode.

 

Last night, while switching channels, I just happened to see Bernie Sanders finding his roots on PBS. Very good episode. Very good show.

@MaVolta - I loved last night's pairing of Larry David & Sen. Bernie Sanders! As a fellow Jew growing up in 1950s Brooklyn, I enjoyed seeing the old photos & videos .. and sadly those of their ancestors' hard lives in Poland, where mine came from as well!

 

The big difference is that I grew up with my grandmother, and she talked about her family .. no secrets. However my grandfather's family never left Europe, and the last communications I could find were from 1938, so I assume they were lost in the Holocaust .. and no one talked about his sisters & their families.
