Mr. Burton is great actor and a great man. My children, too, grew up with Reading Rainbow. I watched Roots through its first run. I had learned that genealogy can be very difficult (back in the day when microfilm was the order of the day). When it came out decades ago that Alex Haley had faked the book, it was a sad day.
Thank you Mr. Burton...as a Family Search Library Missionary, I am grateful for your story...anyone who reads this article can not be swept with emotion for those who came before...I hope someday I get to listen to you in person...I often say "I am who I am because of them"...It is such a privilege to seek out my ancestors and help others find their ancestors...
