Are you a fan of Who Do You Think You Are? Love yourself a bit of Antiques Roadshow? Believe nothing beats finding a history documentary when you’re flicking through the channels? We have exciting news for you…
A brand new show is coming to Ch4, and we have had the honour of working alongside Big Mountain Productions and the Ch4 team to bring it to a TV screen near you.
My Family Secrets Revealed is a family history-focused show, which uses traditional family history research and DNA testing to solve family history mysteries. Brits from across the country came to My Family Secrets Revealed’s team of genealogists and family historians in the hope that we could prove, disprove, or finally solve the mysteries, questions, or rumours that have circulated through their families for years.
From learning life-changing details about evasive ancestors, and finding mysterious traces of DNA from regions never expected, to searching for family connections to Charles Craig, George Clooney and even the Rocketman himself, Elton John – every story on My Family Secrets Revealed taps into our human curiosity about what came before us and who our ancestors were.
My Family Secrets Revealed is hosted by Sian Williams, best known for her impressive career as a journalist and news presenter for BBC and Ch5, and features some of Britain’s respected historians and genealogists.
We’re excited to be a partner of the show and to have helped participants learn more about their family stories through Ancestry’s family history and DNA resources.
So tune in! My Family Secrets Revealed will air daily at 1.05pm on Ch4, starting December 3.
