Would you like to see Bob Marley connected to the global family tree?

I was disappointed to discover that Bob Marley-220 is not yet connected.  I hope he can be part of connection combat someday.  Perhaps Jimmy Cliff vs. Bob Marley?

Interesting how I surfed to this idea... I was looking at the Wikipedia article on WikiTree and saw that WikiTree's Wikidata property code is P2949 and "uses" next to that code links to pages in Wikipedia that link to P2949.  Scrolling down I saw Bob Marley and clicked on him.  Then I did a Find in Page keyword search for WikiTree and clicked on the link to Marley-220   Then I wondered if he and I might some how be connected.  Sadly he and his family still belong to a yet to be connected branch.

Who??? That's a rhetorical question. I suspect I don't really care who he is.

There was a television programme in England some years back which traced his family to the North West of England I think. His relatives (second or third cousins I believe) were thoroughly underwhelmed by the knowledge that they were related to such a famous person and rather implied that they wished they were nothing to do with him. Some people...

I like to see him sourced and if there are sources of his father and other family I like to see it, but at the moment this weekend I say: Don´t worry be Happy. Very likely some one will find prove that Bob Marley is part of the rest of the world global family.

Visit Jamaica or anywhere in the Caribbean for that matter and you can't miss Bob Marley.  He's everywhere down there! I found out there are a ton of Pottingers in Jamaica (and met a few). Who knows, Bob might be a cousin!!
