Premiered June 14, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. ET
At an iconic Boston landmark, Faneuil Hall, a team of genealogists unravels the haunting mystery of one woman’s ties to the Salem Witch Trials. Another woman seeks to understand her family’s connection to the historic orphan trains; a woman seeks to find out whether the Great Boston Fire of 1872 or the small pox epidemic claimed the lives of one branch of her family tree; for one man, the team researches a link to the founders of Boston; and one woman learns that her family’s remarkable route went from the Caribbean through Ellis Island.
