W D Y T Y A? News of new series
« on: Tuesday 28 May 19 16:31 BST (UK) »
Apparently later this year there'll be another series, ... but Ronnie Wood won't be on it! If you believe the tales, his "water gypsy" (canal boatmen families) history was too difficult to unravel and present in the time frame!! Bet "Rootschatters" would manage it!
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Looking forward to a new series. Shame about Ronnie Wood - I think that his FH would have made a really interesting programme . I've heard him speak about his canal boatmen ancestry before on a programme (can't remember what one  ??? )

Looby :)

The only other names quoted in articles about Ronnie Wood are Kate Winslet and Mark Wright ( reality  tv "star"). The latter apparently finds an ancestor was a murderer.

Worth saying that they clearly hope to have Ronnie Wood in next year's series. " There was too much to be able to work through in time for this year's series".

I'm currently watching WDYTYA USA. I never recognise the people on it but mostly their stories are very interesting. I'm looking forward to the new British series later this year
