Speaking to the show’s historian, Chaser said: “Wow, that’s great. But my grandmother was the biggest liar.

Anne continued: “My mother was always very much against the idea of ​​someone knowing about their ancestors. She would say, ‘It doesn’t prove anything, honey. “

“As a child, I was always curious about these things and my mother was always very repressed.
