I really hope the new episodes of Who Do You Think You Are are available somewhere. The one with the singer who was standing in the churchyard where her ancestors were buried who had sent their young son away alone was so very very moving.

Which season would this be? If Hulu plus carries it I might not dump it as planned.

The BBC version of Who Do You Think You Are is on YouTube. I haven't found the US version there.

Yes, I saw that one, it was with Reba McIntyre. They went all the way back to the year 1698 to find that out. Amazing stuff.

Thanks! Putting a sticky note somewhere. On the bathroom mirror. In the fridge. On the TV. Somewhere.

Default New Season of Who Do You Think You Are starts tonight

I'm looking forward to it, one day I hope someone is watching who might have the answer to my brick walls.

I love this show, too, but . . . Movie stars can afford to do that kind of research on their own. I think it would be neat to have one of us picked to do that kind of research on our families!
