* BlueBlood: A surprisingly high number of celebrities turn out to have this somewhere in their background. Amongst others chat show host Ryan Tubridy turned out to be descended from [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfPlantagenet Edward III of England]].
** Given the philoprogenitive qualities of Edward and his offspring today it's more a matter of who ''isn't'' descended from him!
** The ultimate example: Sir Matthew Pinsent (knighted for Olympic prowess) turns out to be descended from God. (By extension, so is everyone else who can trace their tree back to Edward the Confessor, but it's Pinsent they show actual proof to.)
** And comedian Alexander Armstrong manages to trace his family line back to [[TheHouseOfNormandy William the Conqueror]]. As does Frank Gardner.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Most people on the show tend to be highly sympathetic to their ancestors, who may or may not have been particularly sympathetic. The standout so far may be Anne Reid, who wished "horrible deaths" on the people who sentenced her ancestor to seven years of transportation... in spite of the fact that said ancestor was a notorious drunk and domestic abuser who had neglected his duties as a schoolteacher in favour of running a shady construction company and attempted to defraud his father-in-law for about four months salary.

* BoringButPractical: When Creator/LisaKudrow finds out an old relative of hers may be alive, she asks the researcher if they could look through a current record like a voter registry to see if he is still alive. The researcher immediately produces a telephone directory.
