Katey Sagal, known best to us as Sons of Anarchy’s matriarch, Gemma Teller-Morrow is back on tv, and this time its in a totally new way. She’s just appeared on TLC this past Saturday (April 17, 2016) for one of their original shows “Who Do You Think You Are?”. It’s not as condescending as it sounds – the network helps celebrities look into their family roots to learn more about themselves and where they’ve come from.

What has Katey learned? Surprise – she’s Amish! The show revealed that Katey’s family has Amish roots fromĀ one of her ancestors, who left Europe and was among the first members of the religious group to land in Pennsylvania in the 18th century. How awesome is that? This definitely came as a surprise, as her father was a Jewish immigrant from the Ukraine.

Katey gets emotional during the show, as you’ll see in the clip below. She learns that someone who knows her late mother is still alive, and meets her for the first time. Katey’s mom passed away when she was still just a young girl. Take a look at the video below, and tell us in the comments if you caught Katey Sagal’s episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC!
