Episode Guide »
In the Lone Star State capital, the GENEALOGY ROADSHOW team finds secrets involving some of Texas' favorite subjects: football, politics and home-state pride. In the historic Driskill Hotel, an African-American Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer uncovers a surprising family history of land ownership, an uncommon occurrence for blacks in 1920s Texas. A North Texas woman learns of her ancestor's Civil War affiliation and the tragedy it wrought. A family tie to two Texas governors - 140 years apart - surprises one guest, while a Latino-American woman celebrates newfound bonds to her faith and state.
