This Sunday, August 30 at 9/8c TLC will air TV host’s Tom Bergeron’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? However, TLC was very late getting their episode info out, so I haven’t had the opportunity to preview. I’ll be enjoying the episode right along with you.
In the episode, Tom Bergeron sets out to unravel the murky history of his paternal roots. Tracing back over 400 years, he uncovers the dramatic story of his 10x great-grandparents, who endured brutal warfare and starvation in France. Then Tom follows their daughter, who was orphaned as a teenager and bravely set off across the Atlantic, playing a significant role in establishing the New World.
“Someone dead for over 300 years, if you’re willing to listen, can teach you things about what you are doing now.”
I have French ancestors too, and I can’t wait to find out what Tom is talking about….
