[edit] Information

Explore the world of genealogy and learn how to trace your family history. "Who Do You Think You Are?" UK, the BAFTA-winning show follows the journeys of well known personalities as they explore their family trees, uncover their at times surprising family history and discover fascinating and poignant facts about their ancestors that have been, until now, hidden in the annals of time. Confusion reigns in David Suchet's family history. Was his father's father German, Russian or Estonian? Was his name Suchedowitz, Suchet or Shoket? And when and why was their name changed from Suchedowitz to Suchet? David's mother's family is equally confusing. Was her grandfather's name Jarche or Jarchy? He claimed to be a French photographer, but was he? And why did another ancestor's ship sink off Norfolk? David travels across Europe hoping to find some answers. First David explored the only English branch of his family, the ancestors of his maternal grandmother Elsie Jezzard. David has always loved boats, and his investigations revealed that Elsie's grandfather was a master mariner. Further digging at the National Maritime Museum led him to the Suffolk coast and the story of a terrible storm, a shipwreck, great tragedy and heroism. Next David decided to head to London and Paris on the trail of his great-grandfather, Monsieur Arnold Jarche, a 19th century photographer. Was he really the proprietor of the 'Eiffel Tower Studio', and was he really French? Finally David journeyed across Eastern Europe in search of the birthplace of his grandfather and the roots of his unusual surname. A Wall To Wall Production for the BBC
