You may think tracing your family tree is a personal story, it’s actually part of the American story. On this edition of Need to Know, the host of the PBS series Genealogy Roadshow, joins us to discuss the surprising twists and turns in connecting family dots.

Also on the show, a new documentary reveals that a picture really is worth a thousand words -  especially when it’s a rediscovered photo of abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

And we’re back with our series Inside the Newsroom. We’ll talk with WXXI’s Beth Adams and Michelle Faust to get the inside scoop on their latest special reports.
