With the exception of Dervla Kirwan (who had a famous relative) and Bruce Forsyth, the others have all been "privileged" with moneyed ancestors who all had well-documented lives which obviously makes the search that much easier.
I prefer the stories where "ordinary" families are researched - census returns are looked at and birth/marriage certificates throw up puzzles which need solving. This series seems to be looking at the more sensational and not so much about the more humble.
That said, Alexander Armstrong was very amusing which saved the programme for me.
