Re: Who's in your family tree??
You people all assume great-great grandma didn't have an affair...meaning great-great grandpa's side may not count. Or that great-great grandpa remarried and you found his SECOND wife's lineage when in fact you're related to his first. Or if someone was adopted but raised by his parents as his own.

In other words, you have no way to tell if those family trees are accurate.

I've done a lot of genealogy research over the years and found that I am distantly related to Abraham Lincoln and Daniel Boone and Pat Boone, apparently.

My mother does the genealogy thing, have a pretty thick book of whom begat whom, and it isn't even the bible. My personal favorite is:

Loved his char in Braveheart, so I delved deeply into his history myself. I felt some sort of connection with the character, and sometimes felt the movie was about him as opposed to William Wallace... Years before discovering I had a shared lineage.

My dad researched his family tree as far back as he could trace it, and found nothing but unremarkable ordinary people.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11330901

and this says it all. if society would do consistent paternity tests, it would probably show that roughly half of all newborns are bastards. this theory has been tested once, with a fairly large sample size, and was proven correct (i'm too lazy to look it up, google it).

but hey, don't let me stop you people from feeling oh so special.

william the Conqueror
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25567776


Then you have quite the interesting lineage.
 Quoting: Guenwyfar


If your ancestors were from the Brithish Isles then chances are that you are decended from William the Conquerer as well. Almost every person of French or Anglo-Saxon descent eventually ties into the William the Conquerer and Charlamagne lines. It's just the way it works. There were only a finite number of people alive in 1066. Chances are you're a descendent of most of the people where we alive at that time who share your ethnicity. 1066 was about 30 generations ago. If you do the math, 2^30 is about a billion--meaning you have one billion Great^30 Grandparents. But there weren't a billion people on earth in 1066.
