 I have always been interested in genealogy and tend to go in spurts... I have gotten all the way back to 1246 and a verrrry distant grand parent on my mothers, mothers, mothers, fathers, fathers.....fathers side. I found these and thought they are kinda cool. Here are few pictures of relatives.. Sir William Graham 1st Lord Of Montrose, Lady Mary and Lady Margaret. Do you have anything interesting?? Please share

I would love to do my family's genealogy someday. Right now, I have neither the time nor the patience. 

I do know that we are related to Calvin Coolidge somewhere on my dad's side.

Our family is distantly related to Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Kinda cool! :)

Some family on my dad's side is thought to have been French nobility.

There's a county in Missouri named after my family, I believe.

We have a motley crue of ancestors......  My guy has , for his desktop wallpaper, a picture of an ancestor at a war. I cant remember which one though . I think it involved bunker hill.

I am part Cherokee, Irish, Scottish, Russian, English, German, and God knows what else. I could be related to the whole planet. LOL. 

The only thing interesting is SUPPOSEDLY we are related to Quannah Parker. However, that supposedly is so vague... I doubt it's true. Beyond that I don't know.

On my father's side, I'm related to Samuel F.B. Morse, the inventor and artist who created the telegraph and Morse Code.  He is my 6x great uncle.

Wow!  You could start a business.  I'd hire you if I could afford it!  I did a project in jr. high.  Luckily for me one of my grandma's cousin's had done a family history years before.  The farthest back she found was a Lt. in the War of Independence.  Weirdest name found: Jirah.
