related to..........

I'm tracing my ancestors. I found out that one of my mother's ancestors is related to Ronald Reagan. Yikes! Is this going to get me kicked out of the liberal club here?

I'm related to Benjamin Harrison who was a Republican back in 1888-1892 (his term as president) but the Republican/Democratic parties were very different.

Also William Henry Harrison who was a Whig...and a great general.

Benjamin Harrison-signer of the Declaration of Independence.

Ah, yeah, Benjamin Harrison......your direct name ancestor. I also found a Democrat, Edward Sellers McCurdy. He was a slave-owner in the last century who voted against secession. He died the next year, age 56. I wonder if he got harrassed for his vote?

Horrors! In my case, it can't get any worse than being related to my former governor, Fob James. He was about as bad as anyone can get. Yuck.

As it turns out, I'm also related to Edwin Powell Hubble. No shame there, just a telescope!

Ha, my mother has traced her old New England side of the family to 5 presidents, including Taft, Coolidge, somebody I always forget.... and the Bushes (not direct ancestors but decended from the same person way up there somewhere...xth cousins y times removed or something). It's shameful but it sure isn't going to affect anybody's politics.

I just discovered two ancestors born in Kiev. This is getting really global!

I'm a direct descendant of one of the people on the Mayflower. I can also trace my ancestry to the French kings Louis XVI and Henry IV, and, by extension, the rest of European nobility (considering all of their incestuous marriages!).
