    In a similar vein I just watched this documentary:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...lers_Children/
    It's a very moving and startling programme about how the descendants of some of the 3rd Reich's most notorious criminals came to terms with their ancestors past.

    People outside the UK may not be able to view the programme, I tried to find another link but failed.

    I voted 'upset' because I'd be angry that I didn't find out before someone else (since it was my own kin) and win the Kewpie doll everyone's been after all these years.

    Could be, pal. If your mother ever remembers who your father was, out of all those possibilities, give me the name and I'll begin a genealogical search.

    Nonchalant. My grandfather on my mother's side owned a speakeasy on the Lower East Side of New York during prohibition and used to entertain us by showing us his knife scars. On my father's side, his great-uncles were members of a certain, ummm, Italian-American fraternal organization.

    A serial killer? That would be just the second inning in the Franco family's World Series of Shocking the In-Laws.

    I think its a pretty cool thing that no one voted "Horrified" yet...

    Hi Chris

    Why don't you correct the misinformation on Wikipedia about your hangman ancestor? I am editor on Wikipedia and have contributed information on a number of different topics. It looks as if complete genealogical information, i.e., at least birth and death dates, is needed for Thomas Henry Scott. You could do the world a service. You might also have some useful input to make on Scott's character and achievements.

    Best regards

    I voted 'curious' because I would want to know everything I could about him or her and why they did it.
    I may also feel a bit excited about it
    I certainly wouldn't be worried about any rogue genes being passed down.

    I voted for "Nonchalant" as no one can rewrite history and I do not believe that the sins of the fathers are laid upon their sons!
    It would sort of balance things out a bit though, as my great great uncle (on my father's side) was a hangman!

    I agree with Stan.

    Plus, it would probably get me a few pints at my local
