Right now in the Global Family Reunion group we are working on connecting the hosts of Good Morning America to the tree in anticipation of AJ's appearance on the show. We're on a bit of a deadline, and we're looking for as many connections as we can get! A potentially easy one is for host Amy Robach. Her husband, Andrew Shue, is apparently descended from William Brewster, the Mayflower passenger. Is there anyone who can create this connection in WikiTree?

I will have to check that out. I did my dear forever friends genealogy. We have been friends for over 50 yeaars. I was able to connect her to William Brewster. I am going to check that out.

Thanks, Kathryn! Post here if you need help, or when you find something.
I was working along this line.  The middle name "Brewster" recurs through three generations of Andrew's maternal line: Andrew's mother Anne Brewster Wells, her mother Mary Brewster Gunn and Mary's mother Harriet Brewster Wilcox.

I stopped there because I found a connection through Harriet's husband's family, but there can be little doubt that that's the line to follow.  I'll dig a little further.
The connection runs through Mary Jane Cooley (Wilcox), Harriet Brewster Wilcox's mother.  She is found on page 729 of the Brewster Genealogy book, volume 2: https://archive.org/stream/brewstergenealog190802jone#page/728/mode/2up

Also, page 1146 details Mary Jane and Giles Willcox's family, including Harriet Grace Brewster.
