Last night's episode of Who Do You Think You Are? featured actress Rita Wilson. The show focused on the life of her father (shown with Rita in the photo to the left) who passed away only a couple of years ago. He apparently never talked much about his life as a young man and Rita found out why. He had suffered hardships and atrocities that he obviously wished to forget. However, Rita learned more about him than she had ever imagined possible.
Rita Wilson traveled to Bulgaria and Greece to find records and even to meet relatives. Since she does not read Greek or Bulgarian, all the work and translations had been performed by local experts before her arrival. She visited various archives where translated documents were waiting for her.
