        Monica Donley’s Genealogy | Genealogy Roadshow

        This clip from Genealogy Roadshow focuses on Monica Donley, a wife and mother who has roots in Mexico and lives in Detroit, Michigan. Her husband, an amateur genealogist, suspects, but cannot confirm, that Monica has ancestral ties to the 15th century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon. Using techniques in Spanish genealogy, a professional genealogist successfully shows that Monica is the 15th great granddaughter of Ponce de Leon, demonstrating how to work forwards from a suspected ancestor and backwards from known ancestors to connect family trees.
