Maybe, just maybe I was hoping that Ancestry would over do it with the new series it has out, Who Do You Think You Are? I was really concerned that by doing this show it would be one big commercial for Ancestry.
Okay, maybe I was wrong. I don't say that very often & usually only when I think I really did screw up.
I finally got to watch last night, Mathew Broderick was the subject. I was impressed with the amount of actual records shown. Disappointed that I have never been able to locate some of the things he was able to find, but happy to see that they did use the actual records & not just some listings off Ancestry.
The only time I saw Ancestry used was the one time they used the computer to pull up a census record on Ancestry. On all the other records he was doing hands on research. I was glad to see his reactions & the sincerity he seemed to reflect upon hearing the things about his ancestors that they found.
Okay, maybe I was wrong THIS TIME. It was a good way to spend a Friday evening. Looking forward to the next one - now to find a way to watch the ones I missed. Someone sent me a link for watching them online... now.... to find the time. Oh yeah, wipe that silly smirk off your face, I only said I was wrong this once!
