UK gen show: Jerry Springer in new series

The new series of Who Do You Think You Are will spotlight Jerry Springer, as well as TV star Patsy Kensit, politician Boris Johnson, model Jodie Kidd, interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and broadcaster Esther Rantzen.

TV host Springer, whose Jewish parents escaped to London from Nazi Germany just three days before the outbreak of the Second World War, sets out on a painful journey that takes him from New York and back to Germany.

Kensit will "embark on an investigation into her father's murky past, wanting to understand the roots of his criminality and to discover how far back 'the family trade' goes."

Llewelyn-Bowen delves into his seafaring roots while Rantzen investigates a "mystery and tales of a black sheep in the family that has always intrigued her".

    My family originated in Bavaria and around 1835
    my great great Grandfathers parents came to the U.S.A. and and were living in Missouri and the my great great grandfather Enrique Springer and his brother Levi moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
    My Great grandfather was Luis Springer brother
    of Manuel Springer who owned a store in Albuquerque.
    My Grandfather was Robert Springer of Old town
    Albuquerque, on of eleven children.
    Could you please forward any connecting family information that would help us to connect some
    more of the dots.

    Thank You,
    Robert A. Brown
