Henry Louis Gates explores the paternal ancestry of author Stephen King, actress Gloria Reuben and actor Courtney B. Vance, who barely knew their own fathers.

While all the fathers featured in this program are interesting, King's father is an interesting enigma. Between him and the pastor paternity scandal, it is hard to say which is more interesting.

Anyway, this episode is a great inspiration for blockages. Most of us who work on genealogy can get farther than our parents or grandparents, but this episode showed that even when you know very little, there is often a way around that. Maybe not always, but often... just keep digging!
