Spice Girl Tickled by German Ancestors

Yet another pop idol with meager talent has been bitten by the genealogy bug. Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham was reportedly stunned to learn that she is descended from 19th-century German immigrants to England.

Dr Nick Barrett, who compiled the Germanic evidence about Victoria has said: "I think the story really tickled her.

"Within days of the story appearing [in] the Daily Star the Beckham's had got in touch. Victoria loved it so much she wanted to sit down with her mum and look at everything we've discovered to find out more for herself." [Link]

When are we going to see a genealogy or two for B actors from you? How about Vigoda? We want you to get more attention. :-)


I'd like to start working on Abe Vigoda's genealogy. I'm just waiting for an obituary.

VIGODA -- Today, in this city, Abe Vigoda passed away. Born in New York, New York, on 24 February 1921, son of Samuel and Lena. He was preceded in death by his wife, Beatrice Schy (1968-1992), and is survived by his daughter, Carol. He made his first stage appearance at 17 and eventually became a successful film and television star, including a popular role on the television series "Barney Miller." Internment, private.


Sorry. I'll only believe it when I read it here.
