        San Francisco: Chapter 2 | Genealogy Roadshow

        This clip from Genealogy Roadshow enlists the help of Judy Yung, Professor Emerati at UCSC, to provide a brief history of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and its effects. Then Joshua Taylor works with Cecilia Chen, a fourth generation Chinese-American looking for facts to support her father's stories of their lineage. Using passport photos, newspaper articles, and immigration records, Taylor shows that some records lead to a dead end - leaving an open genealogical mystery. The clip also features Jennifer Weed whose family has held a grudge towards Henry Ford because of a suspected feud between the automaker and Weed's great-grandfather.
