DNA-deciphering, finding families, surprises and skeletons!

Who do you think you are? Genealogy has experienced something of a resurgence in recent years, and according to Time magazine is now the second most most popular hobby in the U.S, after gardening. Kathryn Ryan talks to genealogist Michelle Patient about using DNA testing to help to find ones roots. Michelle also discusses her own brush with the past and her work to help re-unite adopted children with their birth families.
