It’s what we have all been waiting for…! “Who Do You Think you Are” is returning for a new season beginning this Wednesday July 23 at 9PM on the TLC Channel (please check your local area listings). 
Very very excited for this new season. Now all we have to wait for next is “Finding Your Roots” heehee.
The Throne Clones. Interesting article from the Daily Mail about the Royal gene pool. Look-alike royals in side by side photos.

The first new app is Family Search Tree, which is available for free download, works with FamilySearch.org and allows the user to visit their trees.

The second is Family Search Memories. This app allows the user to record and preserve family memories and stories.

Cool video about the Game of Thrones “conspiracy theory” or prediction or what-have-you, regarding Jon Snow and his true heritage. Just WHO is his biological mother ??
This video puts together theories and a sort of family tree for these GoT characters.
Just as with any article or video regarding Game of Thrones, be warned of Spoilers !! That is my warning.

"The Brick People", a movie about the Mexican immigrants who lived and worked at the Simons Brickyard in Los Angeles, CA. This is available for rental or for download at the website below. This was an important part of California and immigrant history. 

There is also a personal level of interest for me, as my great grandfather was one of the workers at Simons. So I am very interested in this film. 

I will be definitely looking into this film.

The Kings and Queens of Scotland from King Fergus to King George III, according to a late eighteenth-century genealogist. 
According to the Scottish Archive for Schools, this is a central section of a Scottish royalty family tree “created in 1792 by John Brown, a genealogist,” and “designed in the form of an oak and decorated with heraldic crests and crowns…. Details about each person are given in separate circles spread across the branches.”
