September 21 - Check your newspaper or <www.pbs.org> for the public television shows “History Detectives” and “AntiquesRoadshow”—then catch an episode.
I love the "Antique Roadshow". I don't mind watching repeats, because it is so darn interesting. I love the ending where they show people with their treasures that are not really treasures. So it is not just me who has been told big fibs about family heirlooms.
I also enjoy watching History Detectives because it reminds me of a genealogy search of sorts. Notice how often they use the FAN club (Friends, Associates and Neighbors) to track down the history of items.
