wikitree shows connections to  2 mayflower passengers, Samuel Fuller & Richard Warren,.....George Washington(15 degrees), John Addams( 17 degrees), Thomas Jefferson(15 degrees), Thomas Gates... all thru their relationship this kind a thing common?
It is quite common to be descended from multiple Mayflower passengers.  The "dating pool" wasn't very big in those early years, so there was a lot of intermarriage between the families.  I have eight myself.

As far as the "degrees," if you are looking at relationships through siblings and marriage, that opens things up even further.  For example, George Washington did not have any biological children, so to have any connection with him it would have to be something other than a direct relationship.

The 5th generation of the Silver Books can be accessed with a membership to "American Ancestors."  A number of members of the Mayflower Project own complete copies of the Silver Books (I own four.) and can do look-ups of specific information.

It's all shareable. Facts themselves cannot be copyrighted.

You will find that many Mayflower descendants for at least the first five generations already have Wikitree profiles. Some of the profiles are well done, some of them are not much more than names and dates. If you are interested the Mayflower Project is looking for volunteers to help writing biographies and checking vital records.
