    The growing urge on the part of millions of Americans to investigate their roots has spawned a billion-dollar genealogy industry that is still growing by leaps and bounds. It has been said that genealogy sites are among the most frequently visited.

    In the past few years, finding and charting one’s family history has become trendy because it’s also become a lot easier to get started, with tools, records, and data available on the internet, revolutionizing genealogical research.

    On this edition of Looking Forward, co-hosts Svetlana Ekimenko and Victor Erofeyev are joined by Dick Eastman, a man involved in genealogy for more than 30 years, to explain the reasons for the genealogy boom.
