I recorded it, excellent program, and so sad in places. I know what Jo was thinking when she saw the mass communion grave, but it was not to be. It was nice that her unknown distant cousin was into Harry Potter, in French, brilliant.

thank you so much leaky for the update. it is so touching to see how much Jo treasures her roots and that she was able to trace it so accurately. she comes from people who are survivors and fighters. she has every right to be proud of them. I teared up a bit watching her get so emotional

It is such a cool show, and Jo learned so much about her family history! I would love to be able to do that for myself!
