Hello All -
Just in case you are starting to feel the blues after the final episode of Who Do You Think You Are? on BBC last Wednesday, there is a new tv show to help perk everyone up. It is called Find My Past. It will premier on the UK tv channel Yesterday this Thursday at 9:00 pm.
This new genealogy/family history series is different from WDYTYA? in that it portrays the stories of ordinary folks - no celebs found anywhere. Another difference is that it focuses more on historical events and how a particular ancestor was involved in it. This first episode is all about Dunkirk during World War 2.
One of the ones that I am looking forward to is the one about Jack the Ripper about midway through the series (I think episode 6). That will certainly be a very interesting one to watch. But, I think all of them will be good.
To learn more about this series and what the various episodes will cover just take a look at their website at:

I wish this new series all the success and hope it will be a well received show by all.
Until Next Time . . .
