"Heir Hunters" #2
« on: Thursday 09 July 09 22:26 BST (UK) »
Hiya guys, I'm new to this site and found it searching about the Heir Hunter programme. I'm not sure how much I am allowed to convey to you due to copyright laws, but on Monday 13th, I am in the programme regarding my Uncle Cullum. I am filmed in my lounge, then in my kitchen ( chopping carrots and nearly fingers ) I was wearing a Blue striped shirt and jeans. The whole experience was great and now I want to try and delve further into my ancestors past - so what better site to start? I haven't managed to read all of this thread, but it appears very informative, as does the complete forum. Given time, I shall research further and, if you guys are willing, ask questions.
Thanks for reading.

Steve

Oldwrinkle - welcome to Roots Chat - when the programme has been aired, you will be able to give us some insider info on the making of the show.  My missus has a very keen eye, and she's always pointing out continuity errors, and never ceases to remind me that they can't possibly film someone opening the door from the inside unless they've already let the camera crew in  ;D

RIP 1949-10th January 2013

Best Wishes,  Nick.

Nick, would love to follow the Photographers comment, but don't like to see a thread go off at a tangent!

How about a new thread on TOT.

(I'm with your wife 0n that!)

Welcome to Rootschat Steve. There is plenty to see on this site where you will get help on which ever board you go on, just one word of caution though, it does get additive  ;D
