I missed it, forgot it was on, I went to sleep.

I have read Kiterunner's synopsis and it sounds like a good episode I shall catch it on iPlayer tonight I think.

I went off WDYTYA a bit the last couple of series, it seemed to get stale and didn't really focus on things that I find interesting.

"No need for your birth certificate dear, look here you are in the family bible!"

He has omitted his son George (bapt 11 Sep 1836 @ St James, Clerkenwell) by Hannah his wife.

My friend's great grandfather was Charles Futvoye Gold youngest of George & Emma's children.

He didn't reckon with computers and the internet did he?!

Very interesting. Shame they didn't show a copy on the programme!

It was a total surprise to my friend, she wasn't expecting her ancestors to be on TV, I was scrabbling for the phone to tell her to watch but she wasn't picking up, then I had a text form her about it.

Jill, how exciting for you both! I would have been absolutely ecstatic. The family bible information is wonderful.

I watched it - I found Charles Dance okay and I quite like him and I cried too when he found out stuff about his father he never knew - I liked him - must have been a bit of a shock really - and I think that came across to be honest he was well emotional - as for calling the bar staff darling I think it was his local.

I like these types of WDYTYA because I have been down that road and found my father after he died - his grave - and only have other people my half sister to tell me who he was.

Standing at my father's grave in 2009 was pretty emotional so I could well relate to Charles Dance's feelings.

I don't know, we're meeting up early next month so no doubt she'll tell me.

Hi Jill
Apologies for being 6 years too late to this chat, but I’ve only just come across it. I’m a direct descendent of Emma Futvoye / George Gold, also along the same branch as your friend (Charles Futvoye Gold).
I only started researching my tree a few years ago and have taken the Futvoye branch quite a long way back (and even visited Spa in Belgium). Emma and George have always fascinated me because of their unconventional family arrangement. I noticed your friend has a ‘family bible’ - I would love to know a bit more about that if at all possible?
If it’s of any interest I have a photo of Charles and one of his wife.
Kind regards
Steve
