I was reading an article on tribstar.com and it mentioned BYU’s genealogy tv show called Relative Race. Have any of you heard or watched it? I only saw the first few minutes of the first episode but what I saw seemed pretty interesting. The premise of the show is four couples start off in San Francisco and they’ll have to complete challenges in order to meet a new DNA relatives each day for 10 days across the United States. They will have to navigate without using smart phones or GPS devices. The couples will be given road maps and burner phone (phones with not internet access). Their final arrival point was New York City on day 10 and the first couple who arrives will win $25,000. Below is the trailer for the first series and a link to the first episode
“To celebrate diversity in the world we asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test. It turns out that they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have imagined. In this short film, you can join Karen on her emotional journey into who she really is.” momondo
