The Lighter Side / Re: Will the real Mrs Wilson please stand up......

Ruth Wilson really is an outstanding actress but she must have been under pressure from this seeing as she was playing her own grandma. I read somewhere the anyone appearing in the series who is still alive today was shown the programs to make sure they were happy with how they were portrayed.

This is the synopsis for it:

A brand new series that helps the British public connect directly with their family history. Using a team of genealogical and historical experts, the show helps people to find hidden treasure buried deep in their families' pasts... everyone involved should expect the unexpected! In the first episode, it's an emotional journey for terminally ill Julie Coates from Liverpool, who wants to find out if her ancestor really did jump ship in America and disown his family. Fitness fanatic Peter Sariwee finds out if his estranged father really was a WWII hero. And history student Emma Litva-Bailey discovers the true origins of her name.

Sounds good, I'm sure I remember someone from Channel 4 posting on here about this earlier in the year asking if people were interested in applying to be on the show.

I hadn't a clue they were there either and I have 550 records, better start going through them.

I am right handed but hold a knife and fork as a leftie and always have done ever since my parents first put them into my hands. I just can't use them as a right hander as it doesn't feel right.

Hi Mark,

I will pass on their children but if you know anything else about Henry or Susan that I don't or you think I would be interested in then please do let me know.

Hi Mark

I had forgotten all about this topic that I started but I am happy to say that we do have a connection as I have your Henry in my tree as my line goes via his brother William Newick.

You can see further back if you are interested here on my family tree:
