More than 10 years ago this month, I discovered parts of my family tree. My search for information about my Virginia lineage arose out of a need to confirm to an acquaintance that I, in fact, had blood relatives from the Southern state. In addition, I always felt awkward and embarrassed when my white friends and colleagues would talk about their European ancestors who hailed from Ireland, Scotland and England. Outside of their being from Baltimore, I knew very little about my mother's side of the family.

FARMVILLE, N.C. -- Farmville's only courtroom has never played host to a felony trial. This week, the town's 4,000 residents will watch a parade of jurors, lawyers, psychologists, parents and children converge on that courtroom. There, they will unfold what may be the largest child sexual abuse trial this country has ever seen: the trial of Robert F. Kelly Jr. of Edenton.The trial was moved to this one-blink community in Pitt County, 65 miles west of Edenton in Eastern North Carolina, because of pretrial publicity.
