One of my favorite genealogy bloggers recently announced on her blog that a new season of “Who Do You Think You Are?” is returning. I cannot wait.
I loved this show. One of my favorite past episodes was about Tim McGraw, the country singer. It seems that he descends from some hardy pioneer stock, including an ancestor who was written about in a journal by a sixteen-year old surveyor named George Washington. McGraw’s ancestor also came to America in the early 1700s on the same ship as another famous singer’s ancestor. Elvis Presley’s ancestor was on the same voyage.
This is why I love to read about people’s lineages. It makes for wonderful story telling.
