Que ridiculo!

Oh this is just getting insane now.

I have outlined for you all of the many reasons why Ewan McGregor is my Parallel Universe Husband.  Why I could swap him for BW and Ewan’s wife and I would barely notice a difference. ;)   I don’t need any more data to back up this claim but now comes this…

Census secrets revealed: Ewan McGregor had a South American great grandad called Juan

Ewan ancestor revealed

STAR Wars actor Ewan McGregor may sound as Scottish as they come – but he had a South American great grandad called Juan.

The revelation about the Scots star, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the sci-fi flicks, was uncovered as census records from 100 years ago were released online yesterday.

McGregor’s great grandad, known as John McIndoe, was born in Chile in 1884 to a Scots father and was originally called Juan.

He worked as chancellor of the Chilean consulate in Glasgow in 1911 and his daughter married a grocer called James McGregor.

The couple had a son in 1942 also called James, who is Ewan McGregor’s father.

The archives show the personal records of 4.7million Scots taken on the April 2, 1911.

BW had a GRANDfather named Juan!!  BW’s middle name is John, because it’s the Anglicized Juan, after his grandfather!

His photo is below.  He was a motorcycle (AGAIN with the motorcycling!) policeman in Laredo, TX right on the Mexican border.   I’ve been scanning the family photos from MiL’s house, starting with the oldest first.  Feel free to browse the rest of the gallery here.
