Find My Past the TV show – series one
Find My Past the TV show is an exciting new 10-part series which unites ordinary members of the public with their ancestors.
Each week, we take three members of the public on a journey to discover how they are related to someone from a significant historical event, by searching the records on findmypast.co.uk. We follow each of them as they uncover who their ancestor is and the part they played in history, before uniting the participants to find out how they are connected.
The show is screened on Thursdays from 20 October 2011 at 9pm on the Yesterday channel: Freeview channel 12, Sky 537, Virgin Media 203. Chris Hollins of BBC Breakfast, Watchdog and winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2009 presents the show.
Each Friday morning, you'll be able to read all about the previous night's episode, including which records were used to chart the participants' family histories.
