Irish History Forum Discussion:     Where was your family during the famine

I am not normally one for history or the television
..but this week there is one new series that I am encouraged to view .....Where was your family during the famine ....RTE One, Monday 9.30pm.
I know that most of our extended family suffered .....most emigrating ...others starved to death.
Our family land today is the same land worked back in those dark and cruel times.
I would like to know what happened ....how we were spared.
One day I should make the effort to understand it all.

RTE guide feature ...
The Famine of 1845-49 was a decisive event in Irish history. In Where Was Your Family During the Famine?, three well known individuals; broadcaster and financial advisor, Eddie Hobbs; model and business owner, Jasmine Guinness; and journalist, John Waters; all set out on a journey to trace their own family back to that seminal event. Aided by genealogical research our the three individuals discovers what choices their ancestors might have made, or were forced to make in order to keep starvation from the door and preserve the lives of themselves and their children so future generations could survive and live in the thriving and affluent Ireland we enjoy today.


Those interested in such things .....will be delighted to discover that .....Where was your family during the famine ...is only one part of a whole new series of factual tv from RTE Autumn schedule.
