My mother told me we were related to her when I was a child. I sort of believed it too, because I thought I looked like Melissa Gilbert, and I loved that show more than anything.

hmmmm, no celebrities that I can think of. Isn't there a baseball player named Dave Rosema? I'm related to him somehow. And my dad's cousin was the one in charge of the identification of Dahmer's victims. All of my older relatives came from poor communities in the Netherlands, lol.

My father is a cousin of Paul Haarhuis. A Dutch tennis player who made it to #18 on the ATP world ranking, but more importantly, who won all the grand slams in the men's doubles (3x French Open) and became world champion (also doubles) in 1993 and 1998.

I'm related to George Eastman (inventor of Kodak camera) -- his daughter married Paul McCartney so i guess i'm somehow connected to him too.

My sister asked my parents this a few weeks ago actually

My Dad: With a surname as common as ours I'm sure you could find someone who is distantly related to you who is famous.

At the moment, we don't know of anyone who is related to us and famous.

i've got some old old ancestors who fought in wars hundreds of years ago. we're talking revolutionary war and in some cases, even before that. my dad probably knows more than i do as his mom was big into researching that stuff.

as for anyone famous in the past 200 years, i don't think so.

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+
Wow.....that must be a tough one to haul around in your back pocket.
