Other than Ian himself, is anyone closer than 24 degrees to him?

I am connected to him for 24 degrees through my aunt Dorothy Sizemore Hughey.

I am also a 17th cousin to him.  Common ancestor is Thomas Windsor.

23 Degrees through my maternal grandmother and beyond.

15th cousin twice removed. Elizabeth (Paston) Brown 1428-1488 is our most recent common ancestor.

No, 25 degrees for me but the connection is very unusual, through my more recent Shutes, so that is pretty neat.

18 degrees - but Kiwis and Aussies are often quite close.

I'm also 24 degrees through a 4th-great uncle. That's unacceptable! Particularly since I grew up in Hobart.

Okay, admittedly it was Hobart, Indiana, USA, but still...unacceptable!

I'm working to find some shortcuts.

Well, I never did get closer to Ian, but I was able to fix a mistake in our first path, and I found a shorter connection between Ian and Joan Lindsay. Now, on to Beverly!
