I'm a direct descendant (via maternal grandmother) of the Cornaro line of Venice. We have our family tree traced back to the 12th century - took my uncle a year of his sabbatical to do it.

I'm related to Anne Boleyn and some woman who could soon become a saint.

Go figure.

Apparently on my mom's side, we are related to Benjamin Franklin and Robert the Bruce.

We're also related to *ahem*britneyspears*ahem* but that's not one we like to talk about.

Dad's family is from Quebec and from Sicily, so perhaps I'm related to a mob boss somehow. Who knows...

Cool thread! I'm related to no one special. Just poor Dutch peasants! Not much has changed. My ancestors worked in castles and the likes. The only thing I can think of is that my dad's cousin was the coroner who worked on Jeffrey Dahmer victims.

My high school best friend's mom is related to Johnny Depp. He's like her cousin or second cousin.

I've found ancestors in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and I assume they came over on the Mayflower. I've found some Valois ancestors, but not any Bourbons.

I'm descended from Malcolm Canmore. Britney Spears? Ugh. I'm glad I'm not related to her.
