As I am not a fan of Mr. Horwood, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the episode.
The clog dancing was a hoot.

Fantastic episode once again and, good to see Elmdon, Essex was mentioned. The Tinworths & Gamgees are distant cousins of my husband. I wasn't aware of the Craig Revel Horwood connection before yesterday's programme. How about introducing DNA test results into a new series of WDYTYA? It might help the general public understand the benefits.

I thought it was ok, but I was astounded that he was unaware what an 'ag lab' was and it was of course Imperial (£SD) and not Decimal Currency in the document.

Was interesting to learn of his gt gt grand dad Harry M Shaw ( Michael Henry Macklin Shaw, b1840?) who'd emigrated from Ashton Under Lyne, Lancs. where I was born and family was there way back through the 1800s. Perhaps they'd worked at the same cotton mills Harry and his family did, and also coal mines in the area? If my family wasn't working in the mills, they were down the mines,until WW1 started.

Fascinating episode, which became more interesting when I later found my connection to Elmdon.

My Camp and Warren families lived there (Nathan Warren appears on the same sheet of the 1841 census as the Tinworths), and I'm trying to tie in the Gamgee connection (via James Camp?).

Is a tree diagram available for this episode?

Why was junkers so surprised that Craig didn't know what an ag lab was? I have met many people starting out on their family history who did not know either. They often do not know the historical context of the time or the social history. If he was told that the individual in question was an agricultural labourer he would have understood. Why would he have necessarily known the abbreviation.? We all pick up bits of information as we go along through life. What we know today, we may not have known yesterday, a week ago, a year ago.
