        William Blackman's Genealogy | Genealogy Roadshow

        This clip from Genealogy Roadshow focuses on William Blackman, living in Detroit, Michigan, with suspected ancestral ties to Daniel Boone. A professional genealogist denies these ties, noting the pitfalls of genealogical research using online sources alone. Using military service records and a Civil War-era letter, a genealogist uncovers Blackman’s connection to an important moment in Civil War history. The genealogist also explains how Blackman’s name was changed from Blechmann to Blackman as one of his ancestors immigrated to the United States in the late 19th century from modern-day Latvia.
