In a first for Who Do You Think You Are? airing tonight, Tuesday 11 August 7.30pm on SBS, a DNA test is undertaken and Toni opens the results on screen, revealing the man listed on her Dad’s birth certificate is not his real father.
During Toni’s investigation she discovers an old photograph of her grandmother Norma McWhinney with a striking American serviceman.
But with over a million American service people coming through Australia between 1941 and 1946, putting a name to his face is a needle in a haystack task.
“If anyone, anyone, anyone has any information about this guy here, I’ll kiss you. Please come forward with it.” – Toni Collette.
Watch Toni Collette’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? tonight, 7.30pm on SBS to see if you can help solve this mystery.
