Simple #summer fun can be had with cold water from the garden hose. Did you cool off this way in summer growing up?

What if someone showed up at your door and said, “We know everything about your family.” That is the basic concept behind a new BBC2 documentary series. The Secret History of My Family maps family lines of Victorian slum-dwellers and middle-class individuals to their modern-day descendants.

I watched it on BBC1, In March. It started on Thursday 8 March and was a great series. The first episode was really interesting. I do genealogy too, and it really was fascinating. I'm from England, so that's why I've seen it already. Where are you from?

Can you picture Paris in the early 20th century? In 1909, French banker Albert Kahn commissioned 4 photographers to document the world using a new color photography process, the Autochrome Lumière, which used color filters made from dyed potato starch grains.

In 1941, less than 10 months before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the Lamb family moved to Bremerton, Washington, and planted a walnut tree that would become a staple in their family life. Though they moved in 1969, six generations of Lambs have returned to spend time with the sprawling walnut tree. Soon, the tree rooted deep in family history will be cut down.

“I know firsthand what it's like to lose a home and become a refugee.”
Carefully penned in tight script on a piece of ivory stationery, this was the opening of 87-year-old Helga Kissell's handwritten letter. It was addressed to Sajeda, a 16-year-old Syrian refugee in Jordan who Kissell has never met.
“When someone asks me, ‘What was the most precious thing you left behind in Syria?’ I say that I left myself,” Sajeda said.
Read touching letters between WWII refugees and Syrian children. 
Though they're decades apart in age, these World War II survivors have become pen-pals with four Syrian children who fled civil war.
