...yeah, I'm related to Thomas Jefferson on my mother's side.

My mom told me this a long time ago, but only now do I I really hit with the significance of it.

Just seeing someone quoting him in their sig, and thinking "Wow, I'm related to that guy." made me realize.

My mom apparently has some book or something, I should ask her about it, about my family history on my mother's side, who's side I know very little about.

Were your ancestors Jefferson's slaves or his legitimate family, as it is known now that he fathered children by some of his servants?

...well, as far as I know, I'm 100% white, so probably legitimate family.

I don't know further details, I guess I should ask my mom.
