I became obsessed with this project because several of my friends sent me notes about the terrific history behind Yo-Yo Ma's name. (It's a favorite gag of mine to pretend I'm his long, lost cousin ;)) His story is fantastic and the rest of the content on the website is awesome: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica/ I highly recommend it.
