Mark your calendar, pop your corn, grab a notebook and keep a box of tissues handy — Who Do You Think You Are? returns for its second season this Friday, February 4 on NBC (8/7c). And we couldn’t be more excited.
This season, eight of your favorite stars trace their family roots through the centuries. They’ll solve family mysteries, make discoveries, connect with family lines they’ve never known before. One finds a family of trailblazers who stood firm against social opposition to gain freedom for all; another uncovers his own family’s rags-to-riches real estate tale with ties to America’s founding fathers. And the list of discoveries goes on and on. Ancestry.com is a sponsor of the show — be sure to watch a preview to learn more about what’s in store at www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are.
