Or because you know something of their history and it would be interesting in a genealogical sense?

Hadn't come across Joe Sugg before, but he seemed a thoroughly nice individual, very appreciative of some fascinating personal family history dealing with The Huguenots from Normandy.  And as if that wasn't enough, the remarkable story of his 10-times  gt-grandfather John Austen, an extremely successful goldsmith in London at the time of the 1666 Great Fire of London. 
Couldn't help recognising too the quite small rectangle of grass of Choristers Green in The Close of Salisbury Cathedral as we homed in on the grand house where his church minister ancestor lived in the early 19thC.
I remember playing  in a cricket match against the Swan School there in 1958 or 1959...

I found this fascinating because I have similarities in my tree!

My 7xGF was also prominent in his profession. His picture hang in the apothecary's hall. I have copies of  his apprenticeship, and also he then had young men apprenticed to him.

Only difference is - date wise, he came 30 years later.  So it would be his father who would have experienced the Great Fire, if indeed he was living in London at the time. Of course, before the fire came the Plague. Equally fascinating history. (On the list for winter research!!)

I ehjoyed this episode too. Joe Sugg came over as a nice young man although like most of his generation a little lacking in knowledge of Social History.

Fascinating

I found Joe Sugg a likeable young man, but like dowdstree, a little lacking in social history…
Both sides of his maternal line were interesting and varied… when they brought up his family tree with the surname Austen for a moment I wondered if we were going to be told he was related to Jane Austen!

Just Ed Balks to go now… can’t wait to see where his family lines take us!

I think this has been a pretty good series with quite a lot of diversity… well done The Beeb!

Only just caught the Joe Sugg one and very interested as I also have the name Sorel from Normandy in my direct line. So far only a very rough layout so I'm going to have to get the paperwork back out this weekend and see where it goes.
