    It is interesting to note that Kim Cattrall, born in Liverpool England, has already been featured on the original BBC Who Do You Think You Are.

    Searching on YouTube.com for "Who Do You Think You Are" one can find the BBC Cattrall episode as well as several that have explicit Jewish genealogy: Stephen Fry, David Suchet and Zoe Wanamaker.
