You know I love family history. And I know I’ve told you to watch “Finding You Roots” before. We’re well into the fourth season, thus far, and I figured it was good time for a reminder.
Especially, since the most recent episode brought me to tears. Literally. The eighth episode of season four shared the family histories of actresses Téa Leoni and Gaby Hoffman.
In addition to fascinating facts about each of these women’s families, the particularly emotional tale of Téa Leoni’s adopted family and the subsequent search for her biological roots were too much to handle. Wonderfully so.
If you’ve never watched this show, start. You can catch current and previous seasons on PBS.org.1
