Identical cousins, and you'll find...

The two have more in common than Skull & Bones and an affinity for special interest money, they're 16th cousins!

Shared ancestory includes Walt Disney and Marilyn Monroe.

"Harrison says the search through family trees also turned up other big-name ancestors of Kerry and Bush. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is the president's ninth cousin, twice removed, while Kerry can count Johnny Appleseed as his sixth cousin, six times removed. Both the president and the Massachusetts senator can claim ties to figures ranging from Charlemagne to Walt Disney to Marilyn Monroe, Harrison said. "

Well using that logic. I am probably their cousin as well. But Johnny Appleseed??? I thought that it was just a myth.
So where is Babe the blue ox?

Everyone is related pretty much. The trick is to be famous enough so that someone give's a damn.

Genealogy is only as good as the records, and people went out of their way to NOT write down certain elements in Family Bibles etc.

So yes, this is no big deal in some respects.

But the connections do keep piling up.

Isn't there some mathematical rule that says all people are linked by seven others between them? Think, if you know 50 people, and each one of those people know 50 others, and those 50 know another 50 and on, and on...

Crazy stuff. RANT is on the ball with the "Genealogy is only as good as the records." That was one of John Lockes primary arguments against the divine right of kings.

If you believe the biblical records we can all trace ourselves back to Noah.

Let's not forget to mention, three times removed...


I'm sure that one or the other is thankful for the removed part or are they both thankful?
