    Genetic Family Reunion: DNA Reveals Alex Haley's Scottish Roots

    Stewart send me in a link to this story...

    Alex Haley of "Roots" fame gets much of the credit for igniting the global genealogy craze, but even he probably couldn't have imagined what DNA would reveal about the Haley branch of his family. Watch his nephew, Chris Haley, meet his Scottish cousin, June Baff Black, while attending the Who Do You Think You Are LIVE! event in London. Along the way, genealogist Megan Smolenyak explains how Y-DNA testing can be used to solve family histories mysteries (perhaps you have one that could be solved this way), and you'll probably be left wondering whether Chris's powerful lungs (singing over London traffic) are genetic, too!
