I'm related to the guy that used to be the long-time PA Announcer for the Boston Red Sox, Sherm Feller. He also wrote the song "Summertime", the one with the complex lyrics...."It's summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime.....etc." Anyway, despite my hatred for the Sox, he was a fixture at Fenway for a few decades. Oh, am also related to the author, Keith Ablow, he writes disturbing psychological thrillers.

I'm not related to anyone famous that I know of, but Catherine Zeta Jones might be my long lost identical twin

I'm related to various political figures in Alabama. A former governor is a third cousin. Very embarrassing.

In my family tree's book, it says that 3 brothers came over from France - 1 settled in the U.S. and 2 settled in Canada and I'm a descendant of one of the Canadian brothers and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy is the descendant of the American one.

If only I had half her class, elegance and grace!
