After last week’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” hiatus, I’m looking forward to this week’s episode featuring actor Blair Underwood. I’ve admired him ever since “L.A. Law.” (I don’t have to be a special fan of the celebrity to enjoy an episode, but it does add that extra element.)
In this preview clip, a genealogist guides Underwood through finding family in the 1860 census on Ancestry.com—and Underwood realizes his African-American ancestor Delaware Scott was free in 1860, and owned real estate.
And check out this article, in which Underwood talks about filming the show and meeting relatives in Cameroon.
The episode airs at 8 p.m. Eastern/ 7 p.m. Central on NBC.
