Sarandon Searches British Roots
American star SUSAN SARANDON is tracing back her family tree in the desperate hope she uncovers British ancestry. The Oscar winner paid a visit to one of the UK's foremost genealogists, BRYAN SYKES, yesterday (begs24AUG06) to confirm she has her origin in the country. And the actress is so keen to prove it for definite, she reportedly ordered a DNA test to lay a scientific claim. A source tells British newspaper The Times, "She had brought a lot of her family. There were about 12 of them. I gather it was for a TV show."
