Viewers of next Sunday’s edition of the TLC genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are? will see an interesting program about J. K. Rowling’s ancestry. She is the author of the wildly popular Harry Potter stories. She learns, among other things, that a family story about a grandfather who won a high honor in France wasn’t quite right.
This episode was broadcast originally on the BBC network in the U.K. on 17 August 2011. Obviously, it will also appeal to many U.S. fans of J. K. Rowling so it is being rebroadcast in the U.S. on Sunday, August 2, at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central time.
