Genealogy References in Unexpected Places

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Duhamel 

If you are reading this post you are familiar with genealogy and family history research.

You probably also have a passing awareness of the tv shows which have helped popularize our particular passion (see PBS’ "Genealogy Roadshow" Season Two Premieres 13 January 2015 and WDYTYA Returns! Are you set to watch or record?).

The other day, my daughter mentioned to me that she found that Josh Duhamel’s Wikipedia page includes a link to a rootsweb page for the Duhamel family.

For all the Wikipedia pages I have read, I have to admit that this was a first and kind of neat – a Wikipedia page with an explicit genealogy link, beyond the Wikipedia pages for those who have had episodes on WDYTA, Genealogy Roadshow, Finding Your Roots, etc., which link back to their episodes.

Have you also stumbled across a genealogical reference some place unexpected?
