Windass scores family tree >video
Hull City striker Dean Windass has been presented with his family tree.
The Dot Hepton Family History Group carried out painstaking research into the city-born striker's ancestry.
And he took time out of his busy schedule to attend the group's annual open day at St Stephen's Church, in Annandale Road, east Hull, where he was presented with a folder full of research and a framed family tree.

Deano said: "They've gone right from my mother and father to my great, great, great, great-grandad.
"There's a few ghosts in there I didn't know about, a few names I didn't even know."
Each year the group organises an open day in September to showcase its work and commemorate founder Dot Hepton.
She died in September 2004.
Group member Pauline Hearson said: "Each year, we try to do something for Dot's anniversary and something which will raise the profile of the group."
Deano put members in touch with his dad, who helped get the ball rolling.
Mrs Hearson said: "His dad wrote down all the things he could to help us, like who his parents were and grandparents. He knew quite a lot, so we just took it from there."
The group started scouring censuses, parish registers and the register office to build on the information it already had.
It wasn't long before the branches of the Windass family tree started to grow.
Members meet every Mondays and Wednesday at St Stephen's Church between 1pm and 3pm.
