Great interview, Thomas! I have always wondered if they would consider doing one or two episodes per season of an "average person." While the celebs draw viewership, I know that there are some who have criticized the show because they make it look all to quick and easy, and that some average folks' ancestry could be just as if not more interesting.

Taking a look at the other names found within a military pension application can help us to understand the process, and can also broaden our scope of community involvement. Today I search for background information on Wm Hill, Secretary of State, and Captain Samuel Gerock.
