No Guarantee You're Not Descended From a Hooker

Sue Hills, a director of the celebrity genealogy program Who Do You Think You Are?, has set up a company called Ancestral Footsteps to give non-celebrities the same treatment (sans cameras).

She will create a seven-day bespoke tour of your heritage, complete with the car, country house hotels and fine food. And, of course, the several months of painstaking research which precedes it.

One of the things that she cannot guarantee is that your ancestors will be a good, upstanding citizen.

Indeed, she even asks you to sign a piece of paper promising not to get too upset if it turns out that your great-great-grandmother was a hooker. [Link]
