That's awesome. I'm sure it helps take away some of the pain.

I envy you being related to such a great man of peace and fighter for justice.

You have much to be proud of.

.....and NO.....I'm NOT joking.

how does Ancestry.com work anyway? - the only thing it did was ask me for my name and then it told me to fill out my mother and father's names. It didn't tell me anything about who I'm related to.

btw - I found out many years ago that I'm distantly related to Barbra Streisand - that stands to reason since we both have the same voice......

heehee.

It didn't? Maybe it was because I already had a list of ancestors to put in. It works for me. It's a really good program, actually.

Thanks, gonna check it out.

And all anti-Bush joking aside it is actually pretty cool to be related to a President...even if it is Bush. But I guess you're related to Bush I also, that's better than Dubya.

How do you get to the "famous relatives"feature on the ancestry.com site? I keep on reading about it, but can't seem to get to the link.

It's on the page with your ancestor. It doesn't always work.
