Diggin' up bones

I am not normally a t.v. watcher as nothing ever holds my interest!  (I tend to compare most things to your blogs!)
But NOW...haha...I'm loving these two shows~Have you seen either? 

Faces of America  is found online thankfully, and I've watched two of these so far. I watched Know Thyself and Making America. I hope you will find time to view them and discuss with me! There are four shows in the series...each one is an hour long I think.


Who Do You Think You Are?  is a new series on NBC, Friday nights at 7 o'clock central time.  The first show had me hooked although I am not a Sarah Jessica Parker fan...I really felt for her as she discovered things about her own ancestors. I didn't think I wanted to trace mine any further but now think I'd like to! 

Do you care about what trials or successes your ancestors had? Do you think your future has anything to do with what has gone on before in your family?

Faces of America sounds interesting, will it be on PBS? As for learning about my ancestors, I think everyone makes theor own life, I don't see that my ancestors had much to do with me really. Of course, if you consider that each generation had an influence on the next, there is an indirect influence, but I'm not really interested in learning much about them.

I haven't seen that show --but I am REALLY interested in my ancestors... I have been working on Family History for several years---and it's so neat to find out more about them... I will check out that program.

Hugs,
Betsy

I've made an attempt or two to find more about my ancestors, but always gave up when more pressing things got in the way. But since Betsy has already told you how interested she is in family history, I'm sure we'll be checking out that program.
Thank you for the birthday wishes.

I'll have to check out those shows too. I don't watch much t.v., but I do like to watch BBC shows on my computer. My aunt has traced my father's family all the way back to the early 1700's in Tennessee. I think their name was Bridges. Do you think I'm related to Jeff? LOL I would love to know more about my mother's family but don't even know where to start.

We love anything history-related in our house! My Massachusetts cousins were related to one of the Salem witches, too (maybe they're related to Sarah Jessica Parker now)?! lol

Is it a fiction or a documentary ? It does sound interesting! I'll have to check if i can get NBC channel on Friday. Oh, I think I have a lot of similarities with my Grandmother's life :) Bisous :)

It is true life history!

I hope you get to watch the show on NBC but you can for sure see the PBS series I posted the link to.

I can't believe you mentioned this program (PBS one). I just read about it in the newspaper, and it looks soooooo interesting. I couldn't believe I hadn't heard about it. Okay, now you've confirmed I need to watch it! Thanks!!

Thank you for visiting me the other day...your blog is lovely! I am like you and tend not to watch a lot of T.V. These both sound interesting that I may have to sit down one night and watch! Hope you had a great weekend. xo
