        San Francisco: Chapter 4 | Genealogy Roadshow

        This clip from Genealogy Roadshow features historian Eva Sheppard as she briefly introduces Benjamin Franklin's early life. Then Casey Robbins looks to genealogist Joshua Taylor to verify her own research into her family's possible connection to one of America's founding fathers. Using historical census data and a passage from Moby Dick, Taylor is able to provide Robbins with an impressive connection to Franklin. The clip also features bone marrow donor Michael Logan who wants to use his DNA to learn more about his family history.
