What did you think of the first episode of the new series of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ featuring Julie Walters last night? With the series celebrating its tenth anniversary, the first episode got off to a strong start with a look at the Irish ancestors of Julie Walters and their struggles to get fairer rents and conditions for Irish tenant farmers, as part of the Irish National Land League, in what was known at the time as the ‘Land War’. If you’d like to read a bit more, TheGenealogist.co.uk has put together a special feature looking further at Julie’s ancestry.
To view the special feature, visit TheGenealogist website. Hopefully the rest of the series will be just as good!
