Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood left out of Who Do You Think You Are? because his Family History is “Too Complex”

Ronnie Wood is an English rock musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, artist, author and radio personality best known as a member of The Rolling Stones since 1975. He was scheduled to be a celebrity guest on the U.K. version of Who Do You Think You Are? The show’s professional genealogists researched his ancestry and found a lot of information about his ancestors. There was but one problem,: they found too much information to fit into a one-hour program!

It seems that Ronald Wood has a huge family tree made up of gypsies, most of whom lived on canal barges.

A representative of Who Do You Think You Are? stated, “With Ronnie’s colourful relatives – who can be traced back over 300 years – there was too much to be able to work through in time for this year’s series.”

The program’s directors are still determined to see if they can bring together what they need to make a show all about the Wood clan. But if it happens it will have to be next year now.

I’m envious of anyone who has this many documented, colorful ancestors!

    Or even a 3part special mini-series. It sounds like a fascinating and richly detailed saga. Would love to know what it is like to live on a canal barge.

Maybe a special programme on all the Rolling Stones: Who Do You Think The Rolling Stones Are?

Wish that they would do mine. I’m bogged down in 1748

Not surprising. Who do you think you Are? would rather focus on person’s royal 12th great grandfather than actually look at real families. PBS Finding Your Roots is much more relevant.

    All those noble roots may keep popping up on WDYTYA (UK) because most everyone in Europe seems to be descended from Charlemagne or Edward III, one way or another.

I would love someone to help me with my Family Tree, it can get complicated when they are married, then the wife dies then they go onto marry the sister.
