The month of March sneaked* right by, and it’s already time for the premiere of TLC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” this Sunday at 9/8 central.

This episode features African-American actor Aisha Tyler (she was Ross’ paleontologist girlfriend on “Friends” and she’s a cohost on “The Talk“).

I always enjoy when a genealogy show visits places that also figure into my family tree, so I should be happy with this one: Tyler travels to Cleveland, Ohio, and the Western Reserve Historical Society, as well as the Texas State Library & Archives and other sites in Austin.

The stories Tyler discovers in her mother’s family history include a second-great-grandfather who, according to the show’s publicist, “took a brave stand for his people, and left a mark so great that he is commemorated today by one of America’s capital cities.” He was born out of wedlock to a white man who opposed rights for African-Americans.

I’m not allowed to reveal too many details about the episode, but here’s a video sneak peek for you:
