Robin Gibb - RIP

I was so sorry to learn of the death of Robin Gibb. Although it became apparent some weeks or even months ago that he was seriously ill we all seem to have been lulled into a false sense of security and that despite everything he wa going to be with us for longer.

It reminded me of his appearance in the last series or WDYTYA and how enjoyable his episode was. To get to see ...

Ashley Judd (23 November - WDYTYA USA)

Although I am not that educated on US celebrities, I did enjoy the show broadcast in the UK yesterday evening featuring Ashley Judd and her Pilgrim Father ancestors who left England in 1620.

WDYTYA series for expat viewers

As a family history enthusiast who currently lives overseas, it is becoming more and more frustrating that we are unable to see the latest series until they are made available later (often after several years) on DVD, and then at considerable cost.
