Wikitree advises me that I'm 24 degrees from Queen Victoria. Is this a statement true of a large proportion of the population, or should I start sending them Christmas cards?

Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland is 16 Degrees from Melanie Paul.

It was more than 20 a couple of weeks ago.

Apparently I am also 30 degrees from our member of the week Rick San Soucie which astounds me.  I clicked on the connection finder expecting zero connection at all. surprise

23 from Queen Victoria. 21 from President George Bush whose funeral is today.

I am re-astounded, if that's possible.  I actually have a 28-step connection to G. H. W. Bush.  surprise

I did not think that was even possible under 100 or more "steps".  (More like 1000-plus.)

The answer to my question is, I have concluded, very high. The reason? 42 grandchildren. Imagine Christmas.
18 for me, I guess we're peasants.

20 degrees. I think it was more degrees earlier. It looks like the route is taking a different path now.

I'm guessing it's a high percentage. I am 22 degrees.

15 degrees from me - it helps to have some aristocratic Scots in the family!

I'm 19 degrees from her!  Based on the relationships we  have in wikitree to date, she's my 10th cousin six times removed, but we probably should be closer as we are both descended from King Charles I.
