I enjoyed both of them too. I missed a couple of the PBS shows so it was
nice to be able to watch them online (
_http://www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica/_ (http://www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica/) ) Does anyone know if you
can download and save them? And is it legal? I'd like to shows parts of
them to my classes.
I found I am related to Elizabeth Anderson on the English side.
One of my friends said she wished they hadn't just picked people with
exotically ethnic or foreign backgrounds but also had one whose family has been
here so long that they have no idea what their origins were except generic
"American" (which is many cases means Scotch-Irish).
In a message dated 3/6/2010 12:59:48 P.M. Pacific Standard Time,
I have watched and enjoyed BOTH shows. I learned from the Meryl Streep
family history on Faces of America that she and I are cousins. The best
both shows is that they show the new researcher where to start and how to
proceed to actually do research. They also show everyone how average
(not just famous historical figures) played a role in historical events
and give people a better perspective that brings history alive.
