Since Nancy Bryson married three times, I am connected to him through my granddmother 20 degrees and through my grandfather 21 degrees.

I am not blood kin to him at all.

I'm 17 degrees.  A nice surprise.  The first prominent Canadian who is closer to me than Henry the 8th.  I'm more closely related to several US presidents and many Magna Carta signators.

16 degrees. That's odd, not usually that close to anyone well known.

20 degrees, but the first time the connection finder has found me a link through my paternal grandmother -- her parents were both born in England.

I just missed out as I am 21 degrees from John Buchan - the Governor General of Canada. No blood relation either.
