We can’t imagine the pain of being estranged from a parent, but we do understand the need to get to know your family history and what may be at the root of that separation or what may have led to that break. Not only did Sean Hayes‘ father leave the family when he was 5, but they currently have no contact.

Wanting to find out why his father and his siblings were placed in an orphanage when at least one of their parents was still alive leads Sean to Chicago. There, he uncovers the sad details of his grandfather’s early death on skid row. Sean then follows his ancestral trail to Ireland, where court documents reveal the chaos in the Hayes family runs generations deep. Through Sean’s search, he is able to deepen his understanding of his father and appreciate that he’s broken a turbulent family pattern on his own.

Who Do You Think You Are airs Sundays at 10/9c on TLC.
