Finding Rocco’s Roots

Little-known fact:

One of the earliest and most obscure episodes of “Finding Your Roots” with Henry Louis Gates on PBS featured Rocco.

With the help of professional researchers, census records, and DNA analysis, Dr. Gates was able to determine that Rocco has many close relatives in Northern California.

I managed to gather them all together today and snap a family portrait to send to Rocco and Greg. You’ll probably notice the family resemblance, although it appears there might have been a few freak genetic mutations in the California branch of the family.

I hope other Cycle365 researchers will be able to assist by finding even more of Rocco’s relatives, be they sedimentary, metamorphic, or igneous.

They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    I would never have believed Rocco had so many relatives out in California, but there it is . . . photographic proof.

    Rocco immediately recognized his cousin, Ricky Three Eyes. The dude with the white hair on his chin looked kinda familiar too.

      Ricky Three Eyes — he was the one who spent time in the creek downstream of the nuclear plant?
