Today, Where We Live, we're getting in touch with our roots. We all associate ourselves with an ethnicity or a culture. Whether we're of African, Irish or Columbian descent - most of us want to know something about our ancestry or family history. Coming up, WNPR Producer Catie Talarski leads us through her journey to get in touch with her Polish heritage. And, we'll talk to Hartford Courant columnist Susan Campbell and Duke professor Tom Ferraro - author of Feeling Italian: The Art of Ethnicity in America - about searching for their roots. And we want to hear from you. Are you interested in your ancestry? How do you connect with your family history? Which ethnic group to you relate to - and is it possible to consider yourself, say "Italian" if you've never been there?
