"Genealogy Roadshow" visits San Francisco on Monday at 8 pm

Bay Area drama unfolds at San Francisco’s Old Mint as the GENEALOGY ROADSHOW team reveals stories tying citizens to the 1906 earthquake, notorious gangsters, war heroes and two brutal murders. A woman who suspects family ties to the Gold Rush learns that a 19th-century workplace murder claimed the life of an ancestor. An Irish-American woman discovers how a devastating earthquake brought her grandparents together. One family’s ancestry mirrors American history, with familial ties to both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. A Chinese-American woman finds out the truth about her family’s ties to Chinatown gangster “Big Jim” Chin, and family heirlooms connect a man to the sole survivor of the 1860 Wiyot Massacre.

"Genealogy Roadshow" airs on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.

Participant Cecilia Chen discovers the answers to long held questions about her family’s history at Genealogy Roadshow in San Francisco, CA.
