A long long time ago in a galaxy far away Naboo was under attack.

Wait, wrong universe.

A long long time ago in the highlands of Scotland there was a dude who was a high steward and married the daughter of Robert the Bruce, and had babies and so on and so forth. That line had numerous Kings and Queens of Scotland (eventually Kings and Queens of England and Ireland as well in the 17th and early 18th century).

My lot to my understanding branched away around the mid 16th Century, becoming the poorer relations. They still however until the late 19th/early 20th C stayed around Perthshire ish.

Another branch of my tree also descended from the same, branching off around the same too.

ETA: Danke for the compliment

THAT IS CRAZY EVEN THOUGH I HAD TO GOOGLE AARON BURR.

Thomas Jefferson was one of the cooler presidents imo only because I know a little more about him than some others and so it's immediately cool that Aaron Burr was vice president during his first term.

You're illuminati af too.

Sometime ago one Frenchman told another:
-We gotta sell something to the Americans...
-How about water?
-Sure, we'll tell them it's from France....

Has anybody checked if Ancestry.com is owned by French?, they are selling stories to Americans nowdays....

Psychics have been doling out your lineage and past life identities forever.

I'm curious what the paygate is for these types of sites.

And Jesse James is my fifth cousin. But for all you folks who claim ancestry back to the English monarchs, do the math. Either use 4 or 5 generations per century. 5 would have people reproduce at 20, 4 at 25. Let's use 4. So back to 1500 = 20 generations, so

1500 = 2^20 = 1,048,576 ancestors with a world population estimated at 425-500 million
1400 = 2^24 = 16,777,216 with a world population estimated at 350-400 million
1300 = 2^28 = 268,435,456 with a world population estimate of 300 million
1200 = 2^32 = 4,294,967,296 with a world population estimate of 275 million

Historical population estimates vary WIDELY and WILDLY, but they hardly matter. The fact is that your number of ancestors far exceeds the world population by the time you get 1000 years back. Obviously there is lots of overlap, lots of cousins marrying cousins and lots of "dual positions" for your ancestors. But the overall point is that when you claim you're related to William the Conqueror, well, of course you are. We all are. You're related to Julius Caesar and Ghengis Khan, too.

Oh aye, I don't dispute that at all. I am fully aware I have a minute shred of DNA inherited. And that lots of us are unwittingly related, it's a no brainer.

Ever heard of "the six degrees to Kevin Bacon"? Not trying to destroy your excitement but I don't think being related to Benjamin Franklin is as uncommon as you may think. We're all related on some level.
