Sarah Jessica Parker: Descended from a Witch?!

Much to her surprise, Sex and the City Star Sarah Jessica Parker learned recently that her 10th great-grandmother Esther Ellwell was accused of witchcraft in Salem, Mass., in the 1692 trials.

“The 44-year-old who coincidentally plays a witch in the 1993 movie Hocus Pocus, later admits that she has been deeply changed by the discoveries.”

(The ancestor was “one of the innocent victims,” claims the Daily Mail. One of the innocent ones? Who were the guilty victims?)

What about you? How would you feel if you made a shocking discovery about an ancestor?
