Anyone with an ancestor called Thomas Parsons born in Cork in 1818....................that would demolish my brick wall :-D :-D :-D :-

Failing that Brian May would be good :-D

Muffy cos you drool over him does not make him a good candidate....lolol

Apart from me of course, as I would quite like to have someone break down my patronymic Jones wall, maybe Omid Djalili simply to find where he got his sense of humour from :-D

Charles Keating, actor USA ( well he's fairly famous there) just because he's my cousin lol and it wouldn't half help if someone could find his grandads birth details for me or his gt gt grandparent's.

Maybe Ant or Dec or both lol. Ian McKellen?

It's a shame they don't do dead actresses lines. I have Audrey Hepburn in my tree and would love for them to go way back to our Shaftoe Great Greats just to clear up a few points

Obviously Prof Brian Cox as well. And perhaps Santi Cazorla, the footballer.

But looking at Susan Wiv's Shaftoes and Rose's thread today about brick walls, WDYTYA could have some fun with us Genes members with our more obscure dead ends.

was not trying to be clever in the slightest - I would love to see family history done into people like that - look at the socio implications, nature and nurture and all that - fascinating.
People love watching programmes about people such as Sweeney Todd so why not look at more recent heinous people?

Nobody famous, just someone who has worked hard on there tree for years, but has a brickwall. I think they are the sort of people who are worthy of help, Celebs can afford to hire someone to do there tree if they really wanted to.

Dead stars would be interesting to research.

I have Arthur Askey on my tree who might be a bit boring (Liverpool clerk, basically).
But Dorothy Squires, Oscar Wilde (was he really married with 2 children?), Marie Lloyd, Lord Liverpool would be interesting to me. Also Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, Errol Flynn.............

I understand your reasoning Errol, but WDYTYA is a 'middle of the road' programme and not the place for an investigation in nature and nurture of someone like that.

It would, for one thing, be grossly unfair to any relatives living ( or dead come to that) who had no role in his life or those who did but cannot be held culpable for his crimes or his predilictions.
