Famous Names of Today
A number of our readers have requested that we give family histories of some of the famous people of today. So this is what we have done in this section of the website.
A few factors guiding our choice of people:
- the person chosen is alive at the time of writing.
- he or she is well-known in the English-speaking world, or at least in some part of it. As such, information about him or her is usually part of the public record.
- their surname will usually be one of the thousand and more surnames that we cover in this website.
- and, perhaps most important, their family history should have something of interest for our readers.
Here follows a list of 50 or so famous people today. They are a fairly diverse group of people. You may note the large number of singers and actors in the list. But that of course is where fame is today. Just click on any name of interest.
