  1. I love their show, I love Edna, Heimo & family, I enjoy watching Charlie being such a young man trying to follow in his dad,s footsteps, Much luck and many prayers to him. And Ashley & Tyler starting a family and what an adventure for a young couple to start together, good luck an much happiness. And Bob Harte, God Bless his soul. Your show is so interesting and so beautiful to see that part of our country. My husband always wanted to do what you are doing, but I was always to afraid to try. Oh how I wish we could turn back time. Thank You for sharing your lives with us.

    • I would think that a simple genealogy search would confirm whether your grandmother is related or not. I have done a lot of work on my family’s genealogy and all it takes is a little time and patience. If you can access county birth records that’s a starting point. Sometimes even death records will give you a hint/clue.

  2. It’s too bad that Discovery Channel cancelled THE BEST program that they have ever produced.
    GODSPEED Bob Harte, you were an amazing person and blessed in many ways.

    This program is helping me through some VERY dark times in my life right now. I watch it and remember how little each of these families have but yet how rich they are by how they live. They work hard to survive (as many of us have) and even without the physical items they are not beholden to anyone. Yet I sit here after serving my community for 30 years as a firefighter and after being injured I’m now about to lose my home of 20+ years.
    I wish I had the ability to turn back time and live my life more like Heimo and the rest of the families.

    God Bless you and hold you in the safety of the palm of his hands.
