In recent years, genealogy (the study of family history) has become increasingly popular, as people desire to discover where they came from, and Find My Past is a new series that explores these family trees. The series takes three members of the public that are linked to key events in history, and uncovers the facts about this ancestry.

An episode concerning the sinking of the Titanic shows the researchers using family records, censuses and passenger registers to trace the individuals to a wireless operator, a passenger and a steward that were all on the ill fated ship. These people are then all brought together to discuss their relatives and the impact on their lives today.

Find My Past is an interesting new series that demonstrates many people are curious about their long lost history.
