Sarah Jessica Parker is an American actress, designer, and producer. She is the star of the Sex and the City series and films.

Her father, Stephen J. Parker, was Jewish (his family immigrated from Russia). Her mother, Barbara Lillian (Keck), is from a Christian background, and is of German, and smaller amounts of French and English, descent. Sarah has said that she always considered herself Jewish. Sarah is married to actor Matthew Broderick.

Sarah’s maternal grandfather was Walter Edward Keck (the son of John Edward Keck and Barbara Koch). John was of German descent, the son of John Keck and Pauline Wuest. Barbara was the daughter of Peter Koch, who was of German descent, and of Emelie/Emily Baudinot, who was of French origin.

Sarah’s maternal grandmother was Lillian Katherine Breitenbuecher/Britten (the daughter of Louis Frederick Breitenbuecher/Britten and Lillian M. Hodge). Louis’s parents, Charles Karl Breitenbuecher and Barbara Maas/Mass, were German immigrants. Lillian’s father, Elva Dore Hodge, was the son of John Eber Hodge and Mary L. Stewart, and had English ancestry; at least several branches of his family had been in the United States since the 1600s. Lillian’s mother, Katheryn “Katie” Schwartzstraub, was a German immigrant, the daughter of William Schwartzstraub and Minnie Stork.

Sarah’s paternal grandparents were possibly Julius F. Parker and Jeanne A. Sacks.

Sarah is Jewish; Matthew is Jewish. They are, therefore, fifth cousins.
