When Erin Burnett found out about this project, she generally knew about her family history. She knew her family was from Scotland and Ireland. Erin found some things she didn't know, like she has some Russian blood. But the biggest surprise was finally learning the details about her family back in Scotland.
The CNN Roots project actually began the weekend Erin was heading to her childhood home, where her parents were packing up to move after nearly 50 years.
