WDYTYA The Reality A Letter to BBC
« on: Monday 10 May 10 13:37 BST (UK) »
Hi All,
i am writting a letter to the producers of WDYTYA, asking for a more realistic series, as to just how hard Genealogy really is. :(
The TV series is good, but they make it look so easy.
WHAM here is your relative ;D
Bam here is your certificates  :D
OH and look you can park any where. WRONG.  >:(
They always find the Births, Deaths and census records.
oh and the passenger lists.  ::)
They don't say be prepared for the long haul and the dis sapointments. :'(
Not everyone can just jump on the nearest plane or train  8)
They don't mention all the expense, or where you can find documents. ;)

When this letter has been completed and is ready for mailing, a copy will be added here, along with any reply.

Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

just add it here.



GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL IN YOUR SEARCH.

AND YOU CAN FIND ME IN THE CHAT ROOM

Nice one Loopy ,

Your so right , we spend pain staking hours for our relations and come back with results is this them when theres maybe 2 of the same name in the area.

  You would of thought that a programme so viewed that it is would explain like the BBC programme Heir Hunters does as to saying where the certs are bought from and how hard it can be to get them . And also how Heir Hunters as well as asking joe public where these records can be found , torment is a terrible thing lol

Excellent lu - Now I think EVEYONE should put pen to paper and let the BBC know Lu isn't just a lone voice!

I certainly am writing....

Just one Problem. It is not BBC that makes the programme.

I agree with the sentiments - but on balance I have to say I would rather the precious minutes of WDYTA were filled with interesting stories and historical facts rather than information about parking problems, lengthy searches and postal delays!


Milly ;D ;D
McBride (Monaghan, Manchester), Derbyshire (Bollington,Cheshire), Knight (Newcastle,Staffs), Smith (Chorley, Lancs & Ireland), Tipladay (Manchester & Yorkshire) ,Steadman (Madeley,Shropshire), Steele (Manchester,Glasgow), Parkinson (Wigan, Lancashire), Lovatt, Cornes & Turner (Staffs) Stott (Oldham, Lancs). All ended up Ardwick, Manchester
