A woman who suspects family ties to the Gold Rush learns that a 19th-century workplace murder claimed the life of an ancestor. An Irish-American woman discovers how a devastating earthquake brought her grandparents together. One family's ancestry mirrors American history, with familial ties to both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
