That is awesome Brian. Good time as I will be back from umpiring
baseball and Robbie will be heading to bed.
I look forward to your further postings of episodes.

Subject: [ONTARIO] History Televison series of interest to genealogists
Hello everyone: As some of you may know, last summer and fall I was the
Project Genealogist for a new "History Television" genealogy documentary
series which is called "Bloodlines".
The first episode which deals with the Riel Rebellion airs tomorrow
Tuesday May 15, at 9:00 p.m. on History Television.
The story evolves around the missing body of Thomas Scott who Riel had
executed, and also possibly the search for relatives of a 10 year old
accidentally killed at the Battle of Battoche. Many of the families
have Ontario roots.
While I have not seen the finished product, I am supposed to have
credit at the end ...and you may even see me in action during the
It is an "irregular" series, so I will let you know when the next
scheduled. Episodes on the Battle of Queenston Heights, and the Battle
the Plains of Abraham have been done. Work is ongoing for the episodes
dealing with the American War for Independence, as well as one on
who served in the US Civil War.
