In addition to being a genealogy and history fanatic, I also am a huge HBO:Game of Thrones fan. When I watched the following video, the name was familiar to me.

You see, I’m a fan of the silent movie actor, Charlie Chaplin, and I remembered that his wife’s name was Oona. The Oona Chaplin in the video turns out to be the granddaughter of filmmaker Charlie Chaplin and the great-granddaughter of playwright Eugene O’Neill, through her parents: British-American actress Geraldine Chaplin and Chilean cinematographer Patricio Castilla.
Charlie Chaplin was born in England, and I had heard many years ago that his ancestry was murky. I found a genealogy at “Find My Past” compiled by Roy Stockdill that says he was born Sidney John Hill, which seems quite plausible and the research well documented.
