TCL in partnership with Ancestry.com last night featuring Chris O’Donnell was delightful.
I really enjoyed all the military history that was provided and seeing how pleased and genuinely surprised Chris was with each new find.
All the wonderful family treasures, letters, documents and photos that genealogy researchers kept turning up for him left me in a state of genealogy envy! But I liked how they kept stressing that their finds were unusual and that we are not always so lucky.
When they got to his ancestor who fought in the War of 1812, I was actually dreading what was coming. There's a lot of bickering and controversy over who won that war and of course as a Canadian with ancestors on the British side, I'm backing the point that the Battle of New Orleans was won after the War had officially ended. So it doesn't count. But that controversial point was never mentioned thank goodness.
All in all I think I enjoyed this week's episode almost as much as Christina Applegate's episode. And Chris came across as a decent and rather nice guy! I didn't realize he played the young man in "Scent of a Woman" which is one of my favourite movies of all time. What a great job he did!
What are your thoughts and feelings on last night's episode?
