Down Under on RootsTelevision

Sorry for the quiet times here on the Family History Circle blog, but I’ve been fighting a particularly tenacious bout of bronchitis for the past couple weeks and it’s put me a bit behind. (Note to the wise: Get your flu shot if you can! I didn’t get one this year and boy am I paying for it!)

Anyway, I did get a note from Megan letting me know about a new series on RootsTelevision about cemeteries that stars my buddies George Morgan and Drew Smith. I finally got a chance to check it out and it is very well done. George and Drew chose a tombstone in a downtown Tampa cemetery and researched the man and woman, who are listed as “Master and Servant” on the tombstone and learned a little about them. It’s a very interesting story told very well by George and Drew. I’ll be looking forward to more of this series. Great job George, Drew and to all the crew at RootsTelevision!

They are also looking for more interesting tombstones to research. If you know of one, you can send them the details at

  1. Roots Television has some problems. I have attempted to watch the Down Under program several times and after 50 seconds it stops and skips to the Probate Record program. This has happened previously with other programs – many do not play to the conclusion. While I would enjoy watching George and Drew’s program, 5 times through the same commercial and the intro is more than enough.

  2. I did not have any trouble watching this program and really enjoyed the romantic topic. It made me almost want to travel to Tampa to view the stone myself, but to see also the census records that document this relationship is a bonus.

  3. I have had the same problem viewing video’s. Instead of signing online to watch thru my AOL account I went online with Internet Explorer and the skipping stopped. This has also helped with listening to podcasts.
