Your family tree....

Anyone here related to anyone famous from the past via by blood or marriage??

Just curious if any of you are.

I am related to many Sirs, Ladies, Queens, Knights, Lords and King of Leinster ( Ireland ) Catherine Howard, whom was Henry VIII's wife, Anne Boleyn ( Her Mom was Catherine's Aunt ) Robert E. Lee, Martha Washington ( yep, George's wife ) and the not so infamous King Aidan MAC GABRAN Of Dalriada ("The Treacherous") supposedly, King Arthur.

Just wondering who else may have some similar family ties. Who knows..could be related!

  • My grandfather was into genealogy, but I don't guess he made it that far back. The only famous relative he uncovered for our family was Kenny Rogers.

  • Walter Disney is my grandfather (Jimmy Ward's) third cousin... which would make him my 5th cousin... not that it matters?!?!?! He is a lot like Bill Gates, they both live off the backs of other people's work, and being related means nothing in the bigger picture of things since they can care less I exist
