Who Do You Think You Are?

This is a fantastic show! I am an absolute geneology freak and I find it fascinating so when I heard the previews for this show, I got pretty excited. Basically the show takes several celebrities and delves into their roots. I loved them all really but Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, and Brooke Shields were my favorites. I was bored one night at work and hopped on Hulu and couldnt get enough.

Im always trying to figure out where people are from by their last names, always. I remember in 7th grade (could have been 8th, my memory is a sham) we were instructed by our history teacher to construct a family tree. Of course, I’ve lost it but I’d be really interested to  see it now. I remember “interviewing” my grandma and bugging my parents incessantly about their relatives. I know Im mostly Irish with some French thrown in from my maternal side and some Danish thrown in from my paternal side, but I wonder what else? I hope to delve a bit deeper in the coming years and just maybe we’ll find some Italian.  I doubt it.

It’s strange though, I have such a strong love for the Italian culture. I’ve never really cared much to learn about Ireland. My grandma used to tell me I looked Greek. I dont think so but I’ll take it! Who knows! I hope to find out though!
