Curious.
    I believe DNA is always performed but not necessarily always aired they kind of do a storyline and only if it enhances the the story. Usually with people of African Ancestry you can only use DNA to go back due to Slavery. It's call the wall.

    ^^^ agreed. They all had pretty clear European backgrounds, so the DNA probably showed 90+% in 1 direction. Not illuminating.

    After watching the latest episode with Carmelo Anthony et al, I really appreciate the way viewers learn historical facts that probably weren't taught in school but which obviously impacted the subject's personal history.
