Whilst I am very pleased that some episodes of WDYTYA are now available on Youtube, I must confess to being disappointed with the way the series is now progressing.

I wish they would explain how they have compiled the research they have done, instead of just telling a celebrity that they have researched their family tree and just showing them a tree. I do not see how this is helpful to anyone who wishes to learn how to research their own family tree.

Furthermore, the ordinary man/woman in the street is unable to ask a doctor or professor of history to help them with their research like a celebrity can.

Family history research is a fascinating subject, but it can sometimes prove very difficult to find information about a particular ancestor - I am sure that the people conducting the research on behalf of the celebrity have taken many months to find the information. I just wish they would make that clear in the program...
