    “Irish, Italian, Polish and confused.”

    Michael and his sister Lauren may have Jewish ancestry as Lauren’s IMDB page originally stated “Her parents Robert Socha and Kathleen Lyons are Jewish, her grandparents immigrated from Poland during World War 2.” It has since been removed by an “anonymous” poster, but maybe Michael and Lauren’s ancestry needs further review.

      The IMDB is why I created this page, actually.

      I could find no reason to think that both of his parents are Jewish (!), or even that he has any Jewish ancestry. He and his sister went to Catholic school, for one.

        Well going to a Catholic HS isn’t exactly proof, people of any ethnic and religious background can attend one.

        Also, though it’s uncommon, Lyons has been known to be a Jewish surname.

          In England, it’s still uncommon for non-Catholics to go to Catholic school, although it does happen.

          There are two man on the records who could be his “Lyons” maternal grandfather, one’s mother’s maiden name is “Shaw”, and the other’s is “Sanderson”.

          I haven’t seen any evidence outside of the IMDB that Socha has Jewish ancestry. Whoever submitted it to the IMDB didn’t even state that Socha has just some Jewish ancestry; rather, they put in that both of his parents are Jewish, which is clearly false.

          “Bridget” and “Kathleen” are often Irish names, and there are also many Irish people named “Lyons”. I think it’s possible his mother is of Irish heritage to some degree. “Socha” is almost always a non-Jewish Polish surname. I can’t find any Jewish “Socha” families in England.
