Comments on: Putting the Pieces Together: Last Night’s Who Do You Think You Are? The official blog of Ancestry Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:20:41 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bridget Bridget Tue, 31 Jul 2012 17:01:35 +0000 I am just reading this blog post now and am saddened to find out the show is being cancelled. I hope “Who do you think you are?” gets picked up by another network. If not, the show really sparked my interest in researching my family roots again this Winter.

I went from having no information beyond my paternal grandfather to having gone back 5 generations. This is all thanks to the message boards and some very helpful users. coming from the “entitled” generation I see no reason to make my tree private because I want to help others the way I was helped and connect with family. I would hope other researchers felt the same way

As for the Paula Deen show, I was SO disappointed that she started out researching her “Paul” side, but seemed to get side-tracked to the other relative.

I am a Pauls, and have been stuck on Jacob Paul (M: Sophia Linton who died 1815 in Mathews,VA & he died 1810 in VA) for months now. Perhaps or NBC hit the same brick wall; considering how difficult I am finding it.

We DVR’d all of the shows as well as the PBS series and when I heard “Paul” on the Paula Deen segment, my hopes SOARED, only to be dashed!

Other than that teeny disappointment (sarcasm intended) we loved the show. Surely Ancestry, if not NBC, realized a tremendous spike in interest in genealogy? Hope it helps bring the show back.

By: Kim S Kim S Thu, 24 May 2012 10:38:08 +0000 My mom who couldn’t get the show hasn’t been able to pull up the Paula Deen episode. NBC has stopped viewing of them after hers.

By: Sara Sara Tue, 22 May 2012 03:59:09 +0000 Yes, it has been announced by both NBC and Ancestry that the show is being cancelled.

By: John John Mon, 21 May 2012 23:59:31 +0000 Why are people the show is being cancelled? Has such an announcement been issued. I know it is over for this season — but this is its third season — has something been said that it will not come back for a fourth season — starting presumably next Feb — the same time the first three series started.

I had a great thing happen that may make you feel better about everyone seeing and taking off your photos and stories. I searched for 27 years for siblings of my husbands grandfather as his mother
had stated in 1910 that she had bore 8 children and 4 were living. No one in the family knew of but
two. This year a lady in CA wrote me that she was a
descendant of the first child of that great granmother. This was a daughter living in the same
county as others we knew of but in the 30′s they
moved their entire family to Calif. I probably would never have found them without being a member of Ancestry as well as the new found cousin.
Just a sample of success!

By: Rhonda Rhonda Mon, 21 May 2012 20:09:20 +0000 I didn’t get to see all the shows because they started it during basketball tourament time and the station that it was on showed them instead.
I was surprised that she had never thought it possible of that happening. I searched for years for some kind of bad things that my family may have done, because I had been told how good they were and I just couldn’t see that being the case for all of them.
Sorry that the show is being cancelled, it was a good show for beginners and offered tips for those that have been researching for years.
PBS has one already, but they don’t travel really.
