Hmm ... 8th cousins 3 times removed? ...

Not exactly "kissing cousins" close. Are all the top players in American politics part of some sort of dynasty if we look hard enough?

I wonder what the average "kinship" is between 2 arbitrarily chosen politicians in the US? Or between 2 arbitrarily chosen people born in the US?

Hi Mary Kay;

I remember my Mother tracing her family ancestry on her side and wanted my Father to trace his. He said; leave them Skeletons in the closet, we got enough of them crawling out now.:D
He never did trace the tree either.

I'm with your Dad. I can't see what the interest is. I just thought this was humorous. Of course somebody is going to take insult from it.
