My grandfather worked for AT&T Bell Telephone [before the big split in the Reaganomics pandamonium] and they hold a patent for the lock on the payphone which he developed. Supposedly it is an unpickable lock.

I wrote my eighth grade research paper on him and I still have the handwritten notes I took for my interview with him. He was so proud when I told him I had to pick someone famous and influential to do a paper on and I chose him.

I got an A+

I have absolutely no idea of what famous ancestors I have, if any. I have not been able to get very far in my family history searches. And that sucks, 'cause I'm really, really curious.

That being said, there is a cousin of mine who's been an extra in a few shows here and there on TV-she and her boyfriend appeared as extras in shows like "The Young And The Restless" and things like that. Also, I could have been related to Frank Sinatra, Jr., as an aunt of mine went to her prom with him when she went to Hollywood High in California. If things had gone further between them, ya know....

And that's really about it for me. At least, from what I know.

The only famous person I know of in my family is on my husbands side... He's the guy who told the Donner party the pass was clear right before they made their infamous trip into the mountains I don't ever ask my husband how the roads are

One of my direct ancestors was on the Mayflower. He was a servant. I'm also related to the first cousin of Louis XVI.

Hopefully, someday, I can establish my own fame.

I'm related to a member of the Mayflower party, John Adams (and therefore Samuel Adams and John Quincy), and Laura Ingalls Wilde (sp).

There are some others, but my parents do the geneaology, not me!
