Its been a real blast but Id really hate for this show to go out a ratings loser. Best they quit digging holes while they're still on top. 

Captain,

In a recent special episode, Rick and Marty stated that the History Channel has asked them to host a spin-off documentary series about mysteries in America that were partially connected with Oak Island. 

I can suggest that the spinoff-series would (or at least could) investigate actual historical material that has been collected and published by James McQuiston, who has appeared in at least one Curse of Oak Island episode. 

https://www.amazon.com/Island-1632-James-McQuiston-FSASct/dp/197750504X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1546442273&sr=8-1&keywords=Oak+Island+1632

The "look inside" preview for this book includes roughly 50 to 100 pages of the book.  McQuiston has documented who legally, officially, owned (in the 1630s) not only all the islands in Mahone Bay, but also the piece of land on which the modern city Lunenburg was eventually built.  And 1630 is approximately the earliest time among scientific dates that the Lagina brothers have obtained for objects found in the swamp of Oak Island. 

McQuisten's research involves the era of alternating control of Nova Scotia, by French Acadians vs Brittish-Scottish colonists.  Thus it seems like a natural fit for the History Channel.

Now that's a logical assertion, although I think the cross probably belonged to a Basque fisherman cir 1500s.
