I'm 19 degrees also. But what I noticed was that my connection to both her and Jimi Hendrix involved my Jeter ancestors, so I used the Connection finder for the two of them and they are 18 degrees apart with only ONE marriage link in the path.

It appears that Janis and I are 10th Cousins 3x Removed with John Hawkes as a Common Ancestor... LOL! :-)

I am 14 degrees from Janis Joplin with one marriage in the Fears-Porter line. I think I am surprised as I thought I would be way more degrees as I am the other Rock Stars!

These connections are really neat. We are 18 degrees apart through a Mowery connection (Sarah Mowery's marriage to Senator Robert Hanna). We are also 12th cousins twice removed, as we are Winthrop descendants. (I am a Fones descendant, she was not.)

10th cousin (on my father's side), with the common ancestor being a bloke called John Drake (1585-1659).

And an 18-degree connection.

Yes, 16 degrees.  We share a common ancestor on my Abney line.

My Father was her 7th Cousin.

I had no idea this relationship existed, I should check my DNA results against others listed on Janis's profile.
