List for the signers of the Declaration of Independance

Can't wait until they put out the list of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, we found that we were related to all of the Barons who signed the Magna Carta, and had direct relationships to several passengers on the Mayflower.

Hoping you edit your question to correct the misspelling of the word Independence.
Charles, If you look at the end of your post, you should see an "edit" link. Select that, which takes you to the edit function. You should be able to edit the Question at the top of the box, then select "save changes" to save it.

According to, I'm related to 33 of the 56. I checked the ten most closely related to me, on WikiTree, which finds that seven of those ten are related to me. I extrapolate that approximately two dozen of them are tenth cousins or closer; and a dozen, 5th cousins or closer.

Philip Livingston,
Robert Treat Paine,
George Ross,

are 3rd Cousins, 8 or 9 times removed.
