Francisco Villa is remotely related to me according to the "Global Connections" chart, but there are differences in my family tree.  Discrepancies are ancestors of Nancy Davidson [Davidson-6854], and rely on other people's research.  I will check it out and report back.

laughI just about fell over laughing -- I am not blood kin to him but my Aunt Caroline [Smith- 159092] was married to the man who was bigamously m. a 2nd time to another whose gt gdpa ... and it goes tumbling along through a lot of siblings and marriages and puts me at 39 degrees of separation ... and I'm thinking, yeah, well, he's reputed to be a Bad Hat ... still I'm farther away from HIM globally than I am to Henry VIII who is 16 degrees separated and he's ALSO reputed to be a Bad Hat ... tsk

I imagine one of the desired outcomes of the Global Connections is that people will question it and confirm or deny the routes which are presented. I applaud you for taking the time to make the connection better.

No, my tree agrees perfectly.  I find it confusing to work backwards from the Global Connections chart when it has more than ancestors.
