Featured alongside her are other sculptors:

Who are you most closely connected to? If you're one of the 23,213,000 of us who are connected to each other on our big tree you can check with the Connection Finder.

You can check for shared ancestors with the Relationship Finder. Are you a cousin to any of them? Your Relationship Finder Quick Links page (see your profile pull-down menu under "Relationships") has quick links for several notable groups.

New special feature: Check out how you're connected to other Sculptors by searching the sculptors category using the green MyConnections button in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Let us know how you're related below! If you want to share your connection on social media with cousins and friends, click the "get shareable image" below the results, e.g. Pablo Picasso and Vinnie Ream. Then just upload it along with the URL of your direct connection. (Please refrain from sharing your connection on the featured profiles themselves, though. It clutters conversations on research and collaboration. Thanks!)

P.S. Help us choose and improve profiles for next week's feature on Indigenous Peoples.

Remarkably, I find that I am only 13 steps from the Englishman, John Bacon. It seems that his son was a missionary in New Brunswick (Canada), where he married a woman whose father was an American Revolutionary War Loyalist who had gone to Canada from Massachusetts. That wife maps out as my 2nd cousin 6x removed. It is a small world!

15 degrees to John Bacon is by far the closest connection.  His daughter-in-law was my 4th cousin 4 times removed.

Cousins are Frances Loring (8th, 4 times) and Frederic Remington (18th, 1 time).  The MRCA on the latter was Richard (FitzAlan) de Arundel (abt 1314-1376).

Checking familial relationships (not degrees):

Frederic Remington - 7th cousin 3x removed

Frances Loring - 9th cousin 1x removed

John Bacon - 19th cousin 8x removed (but it appears there may be a considerable amount of correction to be done in some of the involved Medieval connections).

My closest connection is John Bacon at 17 degrees - but no biological relationship....

My closest connection is Vinnie at 16 degrees through my Klinesmith and Stober ancestors as she is the 4th cousin 2x removed of my 5th-great-grandfather's wife. My closest blood relation, however, is Emma Stebbins, my 5th cousin 5x removed. I'm actually descended from our common ancestor John Stebbins Sr. in two ways - once through 5x-great-grandfather Silas Guilford, the other through his wife Sylvia Miller as the couple were second cousins 1x removed and both came from Puritan families.

This was a fun exploration of sculptors, particularly as I didn't know about most of them. 

Why not highlight the Member of the Week as well! I am 20 degrees from Elaine Weatherall through marriage and am a fellow descendent of Marah Priest, daughter of Degory Priest, making Elaine an 11th cousin once removed.
