We all found it quite disappointing.

Thought the way that he put people into stereotyped categories very off putting.

Not for us

This won't be on my list of favourite episodes, because (1) Rupert Everett was such a drama queen, and (2) I wouldn't want him doing any genealogy research for me, because he jumped to too many conclusions.  There were lots of facts that were skipped over on certificates which would have ended the programme 20 minutes earlier, which would have suited me just fine  ::)
RIP 1949-10th January 2013

Best Wishes,  Nick.

I was a bit disappointed that there was a lot of talk and not enough looking on census.
I think my ancestor was a dodgy merchant seaman too.

We also agree with your comments. What an odious person he is.

I agree with that comment, I kept thinking why doesn't he read the certificates properly, but I still found it interesting.  I wish I could find my g.grandfather as easily but he was a fisherman not a mariner.

Georgina wasn't hard to find out about. after a 10 minute search , I had discovered she was the daughter of George Teague b 1831-1875 and Esther Walker b 1828 Islington. I expect they knew but it didn't make a interesting enough story for the programme.Shame really to dismiss her so flippantly.
Not sure if I enjoyed this episode too much , have to agree with the Drama Queen bit.
The new series seems to have lost it's spark. Much preferred the earlier series.
nice to see the childrens home though ....found my best friends relative in there so will have to tell her.

I found Georgina in 1881 and her parents in 1861 but on a quick skim nothing obvious in 1871 - I think I found her mother's death in 1883 .  Her father's death in 1875 in Marylebone.  Her marriage to Frederick Everett in 1883. No sign of the Teague's in 1871 .....where does Georgina go.  I did a quick search for Georgina Everett  but nothing seemed to jump out !!!

Someone in Cyril's family must have kept in contact with him after he was put into the boys' home, or how could he have known about the "stockbroker who lived in Piccadilly"?   


I thought that the revelation of the false information (that his father was deceased) on Cyril's marriage certificate  was a good illustration of something many genealogists discover about information on certificates.
