Is it unusual to be family connected to every single featured person in Family News?

+2 votes
I am astonished every time when I see a family connection path to every single public figure that is sent in the Family News email (so far!). Typically it's 17ish to 30ish degrees. I am curious how many others experience this phenom. Clearly I've got enough strings of family names to make this possible, but then the celebs data must be deep too. I also explored offline and found connection to every USA president too!

Everybody who is connected is connected to these people. Once you are connected to the 'big ole tree', you are connected to everybody else who is also connected to the 'big ole tree'.  Remember that the connections you see at the foot of your profile and on the Family News are not just blood, they are marriages, too - and there could be mistakes along the way. ;)

Ros, I think I get it. It takes but one of my family ancestors to connect to the big tree for me then to be connected to all in the big tree, correct?
