Tonights show takes on an important Topic; of the historical backdrop in Genealogy. Genealogy is a word used to describe a line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor to you. There are direct ancestors and others on the branch who are blood relatives. For me Genealogy is not only locating ancestors but profiling them through the historical context in which they lived. This is important especially with Native and African Ancestors whose history is mirred with movements they had no control over.

For a decade now, András Koltai has been researching Hungarian ancestry for clients mainly from the USA and Israel. Though he focuses on Jewish genealogy, he has had a number of cases where the family researched was non-Jewish. Apart from doing the regular work genealogists do, he has also been the researcher for five episodes of the tv-series "Who Do You Think You Are?"; in some of these episodes he was on screen, too.
