How can I be "16 degrees from John Haynes ("How can I be "16 degrees from John Haynes (" you are16 degrees from John Haynes this weeks profile") and yet when I check our 'genealogical connection" on the bottom of his profile page - there is "No connection"?  :-)   :-)

I have no known genealogical relationship with Henry VIII Tudor, but I am 22 degrees from him.

This works because my connection goes up my blood family for a while, then side-steps by a marriage to another blood-line, then sidesteps again by marriage to another blood-line, then by marriage to the brother of Catherine Parr, then by Catherine's marriage to Henry.

This is how relationship degrees work when there is no direct blood connection.  I think it would worry me a little if I found I was directly related to him.  I've always been happy as the peasant type. cheeky

Thank you! I too am related to Catherine Parr (9C15R) , in fact our Parr's emigrated to Canada and then to Los Gatos California where they owned 3,000 acres.

Thank you for your time!

Its just a fun thing that WikiTree provides so that you can track through the tree to find a connection, not a relationship. Compare it to a Maze. It has no genealogical research value.
