According to Ancestry.com

the world’s largest online family history resource, Romney’s family tree connects him to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Pierce, Herbert Hoover, and both George H.W. and George W. Bush.

is probably my cousin!

I'm related to the body guard that wasn't guarding Abe Lincoln

my great, great, great etc, grandfather was a bodyguard on the night abe lincoln was shot and was in the saloon next to the theatre when it happened. There was a report that Abe lincoln was short a body guard and according to the ancestry.com my ancestor was a body guard that night. We always thought it was a joke but apparently my family is partly to blame for his death.

Want something a touch more interesting?

It means nothing. GW Bush is

It means nothing. GW Bush is my 8th cousin and I'm descended from Madison, both Presidents Adams, Mamie Roosevelt, John Hancock, and John Locke. If the logic were accurate, then I should be rich and sitting pretty in a political position somewhere in this country. I'm not. Bottom line is, if you have had family in this country for a couple hundred years, then you too have political ancestors in your family tree.

James A. Garfield was my 5th cousin. If all presidents are related then I guess I'm related to B.O.! (excuse me while I throw up)

Yeah, and I am related to Richard Nixon and Ringo Starr.

I still don't get to be president or a rock and roll star.
I agree it is creepy, how all our presidents are related, but I think current associations that they freely choose are more telling than ancestry that they have no control over.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Ringo was always my favorite
