I was going to say yes until the last link to the purported common ancestor with a big Uncertain parentage at Rachel Brundage. Prompts me to investigate a bit further.

And now I see why I was having déjà vu all over again. Was looking at the same issue almost exactly two years ago.

No 22 degrees for me, through a connection from my Chattin ancestry (which has been showing up in these lately, which is exciting -- it means more connecting is happening).

And we are eleventh cousins, once removed with Colonial Ayers ancestry.

With the Van Zant name I would have thought for sure we'd have some shared New York ancestry but it doesn't look that way. (So far.)
