26 degrees, 3 marriages.  Closer to me than most African-American notables.
What surprises me about my 28 degree connection to Dr Gates is that it goes through my mother, to my 3-greats Irish-born grandfather, to his English-born sister-in-law and so on.  I would have expected it to go through my American-born husband.  (His connection s 29 degrees.)
