The show uses DNA from men, from women, and from people that are both. The show then compares it with closely related records of their family history. The show spends a lot of time researching each person. The series has looked at the family history of many famous guests, including people with African American, Asian American, British American, Chinese American, Dutch American, Greek American, Indian-American Irish American, and Italian roots.
Each celebrity guest is given a book about their family history. It has the information that researchers have found out so far about their genealogy. There are also copies of historical records, photographs of new relatives, and genetic results. In some episodes of the show, guests are reunited with their long-lost relatives. But in most episodes, each guest is shown sitting across from Bill Gates as he walks them through his book of life.
The show cuts back and forth between two or three guests stories. Also, Bill Gates uses examples from his genealogy to draw more correlations. Examples of this are a grandmother of his having multiple children with a white man whose name she never revealed, as well as Gates’ membership into the Sons of the American Revolution.
