I was recently asked how to find famous relatives.  Well, this is how I did it ... I subscribe to Ancestry.com and have been actively working on my family geneology for a number of years now.  One day I discovered a link on the home page that lead me to a list of all the famous people I may be related to ... I think it may be because I have been able to research my family back more than 20 generations (to the 1500's).  I guess the more folks in your family tree, the more possibilities of being connected to someone famous.  Just this weekend I discovered I am related to a Scottish King!  I didn't even know I was Scottish!

I love working on my family tree because it just keeps growing, and growing, and growing.
