The first person getting her ancestry traced is Mandy Moore from the NBC series “This Is Us.” She has had an active career. She started a singing career while in High School and in 1999 toured with NSYNC and later the Backstreet Boys. Her acting career started in 2001 and has been growing over the years.
Mandy is of Russian-Jewish (from her maternal grandfather), English, and Irish descent. On WDYTYA she is shocked to discover ancestors who lived in Australia, at least one of which was an indentured servant. She travels to Australia determined to unlock the mystery of how they got there. Moore is touched by the courage of those who made the journey and the sacrifice of those who were left behind.
