Opening Narration: As the 1930s became the war years of the 1940s, an awakening came to our small community, an awareness of the world beyond our Blue Ridge mountains. There began a reaching out to touch people and places and knowledge we had never considered before.
Closing Narration: All the dreams that were born in those early years on Walton's Mountain were not fulfilled. But whatever we people on the mountain may or may not have accomplished in life, we were held together, and still are, by the knowledge of ourselves as families. Our roots go deep, and we try our best to keep them nourished and healthy for the generations yet to come.
The German episode title is "Familienforschung", meaning "Genealogy".
