This is a GREAT show!!

Hope you are having a great summer! I have spent the last 2 weeks in Virginia, North Carolina, & Washington, DC doing more ancestry research. I got to hold the handwritten will of my 5x great-grandfather in my own hands, 200 years & 2 months after he wrote it & held it himself. For me, it was an amazing experience that, believe it or not, was also filled with history. How? It's a document from the past.

Which brings me to the show in the title. It's called "Who Do You Think You Are?" And starts tonight on TLC, 8 or 9 pm, I forget which. It's about celebrities who are having professionals do their research for them but in the process you will learn some amazing history. Remember, everyone's ancestors, everywhere, lived what we study today. If you like history, if you are interested in how to start researching your own family , watch it.

I LOVE this show. I hope you enjoy it as we'll!
