Premiere date: May 31, 2016
This time the team hits Houston to discover family stories at the Julia Ideson Building of the Houston Public Library. A woman seeks to find out if her roots in Texas are as deep as the character she portrays in her historical re-enactments. Later, the Roadshow team investigates the notorious Andersonville prison; a man wants to know if his African-American ancestors fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War; a woman uncovers her link to a prominent figure in Texas history; another learns of her connection to the Cherokee Freedman; and one man traces his roots to the conflicts that shaped early American history.
