583. JK Rowling on TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? Sunday



 

             The Who Do You Think You Are? episode this week is from British TV, and features J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, as she sets off on a journey in France to trace her mother’s roots. She discovered that a family war story might not be what she thought when military records revealed a surprising truth.
            Tracing the trail even further back, Jo learned of her second great-grandmother, who had many struggles both as a poor, single mother and a witness to German invasion during wartime, which forced her family to choose sides in a time of turmoil.
            The episode will air on The Learning Channel this Sunday, August 2, 2015, at 9:00 pm. The filming for the program was done on April 6 – 21, 2011, according to info from TLC.
