I am related to the late June Carter Cash (she was a cousin of my grandmother whose maiden name was Carter.) They had a similar look too-dark hair-possibly some Cherokee Indian in there somewhere. One of my daughter's teachers in middle school was related to Johnny Depp.

Jan Peters, who scored two goals at Wembley for Holland to defeat those limey bastards (just kidding, I love brits) is a cousin-once-removed. Never met the man though.

Could I have used this guy while playing Sega Genesis back in the day? Say 1994-95? Or are we talking more years back here...

My dad had an uncle who was in the Mob in Chicago. He was found shot dead in a ditch along some highway. What was a dutchman doing in the Mob? I dunno...

Sean Connery used to live down the road from us, but no, I'm not related to him.

For you fellow Brits out there who follow politics (no one else will care), I'm a distant cousin of Michael Portillo.

I'm also an indirect descendent of King Louis XVI of France (an ancestor of mine was his first cousin who was sent to the New World to colonize; and, hence, I'm related to the rest of imperial Europe being the inbreds that they were).

My grandmother's cousin married Brian Dennehy's daughter. My parents weren't aware of the relation and were when he walked into the ceremony.
