Tonight the popular genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are? returns with actress Cynthia Nixon as she uncovers a surprising mystery about her family history. Best known for her role in the HBO series Sex and the City, Nixon has received multiple awards, including Emmy, Grammy and Tony awards. In tonight’s episode, she discovers her third great grandmother Martha Mary Curnutt was once incarcerated in the Missouri State Penitentiary. In fact, Curnutt was only the second woman ever to be incarcerated in the state of Missouri.

And here’s another fun fact – her Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, who appeared in the show’s first season, is her 13th cousin thrice removed!
