Sir Tony Robinson Reviews Life Before World War I

In a video presentation, Sir Tony Robinson uses the records available today to get a better understanding of what life and times were like before World War I. If your ancestors lived in England at that time, you can obtain a better understanding of their lives, thanks to this video.

You can view the 44-minute video on the Ancestry.com Blog at http://goo.gl/uNtcVu or on YouTube at http://youtu.be/gCSXXsrytBs or in the video player below.

I always enjoyed the Blackadder television programs and delighted to see Sir Tony, who played the part of Baldric, is now become an expert in history and genealogy. When he was was knighted in the 2013, he stated, “I’ll use my new title with abandon to highlight the causes I believe in, particularly the importance of culture, the arts and heritage and the plight of the infirm elderly and their carers,” adding, “I also pledge that from this day on I’ll slaughter all unruly dragons, and rescue any damsels in distress who request my help.”
