Len followed the lives of his Eldridge ancestors on his mother's side. The silk weaving link was traced back to Danial Eldridge and I would have liked to have gone back even further as Daniel was prosperous enough to leave his son two properties and presumably there were records to show more. A downturn in the industry led Daniel's descendants into poverty. His son died in the poorhouse and in turn his son, faced with going into the poorhouse, killed himself.
But as Len followed in his great great grandfather's footsteps, he discovered the dramatic part that Joesph played in the struggle for Polish independence.
An engrossing episode that covered a lot in the time available.
