Am really excited about the Pitman DNA testing. We have a male who is a descendant from Daniel & Comfort Hatfield Pitman's line(my line) who is testing. I wonder what the results will show and what direction they will point us in.

I had heard about an episode of History Detectives, a show broadcast on PBS which was going to be focused on Genealogy. It aired Monday July 25th and I watched it. While I really enjoyed hearing the stories I was a bit disappointed at how simple they made the research look. As a researcher I know it is not. However to keep within the amount of time alloted and not to bore the typical viewer I guess they couldn't have included everything I"d like to have seen. Really interesting stuff though.
