Gurney, there, is closer than I am, at 15 deg

Susan Smith-157141 is 15 degrees from Charles Tiffany -- let's see my sister married Stadtmiller-55 and HE was nephew to Stadtmiller-16 and SHE married Clack-406 and HIS daddy was Clack-2952 and HIS sister Clack-71 married Tyler-861 and  ... I never heard of any of them going backward from the Clack family
Ah, darn, so close - I'm 18 degrees! Ah well!

I got 14 degrees. It doesn’t appear to be a blood relation. Just a bunch of well placed marriages.

Gurney has me beat. I'm 15 steps from Charles Tiffany, through ancestors in Massachusetts.

It's interesting because although I have that same Jackson line as you do, David, my Cook connections must be closer because it shows me as 18 degrees removed via my Cook ancestry.

Me too :)
It seems that you and I are 10th cousins.

Wow!  This is the first time that I have actually been related to the "Profile of the Week".  And I also found a cousin.  I checked and we are 10th cousins! 

I am also 15 degrees thru the Cheneys, (Daniel then Hannah), interesting. Only through marriage though.
Hi Cindy, Daniel Cheney is my 9th gr grandfather.  I descend from his son John :)

Fifteen degrees; 6th Cousin 5 times removed - not good enough for me to get a family discount at the Tiffany’s in Scottsdale.

I'm 15 degrees from Charles Tiffany.

Straight up 4 generations to James Tiffany,

then straight down 6 generations from James's brother Ephraim to William Manter Tiffany.

William married a sister of my great-grandmother.

This Tiffany family has been, more than once for me, a gateway to the world tree.

Hello cousins, distant cousins, and very distant cousins! I was thrilled to discover this moments ago. I am a direct descendant of Charles Tiffany and have been doing exhaustive research on his ancestry, building off of work he paid for and the efforts of a first cousin and a first cousin once removed (thanks, Tiff and Doug!). Please feel free to reach out if you're interested in continued research - always so much to do finding more connections and making improvements on existing profiles! Thank you to those working on this profile!

Charles and Jennifer are 16th cousins 8 times removed (Mother’s Side)

Charles Tiffany and Jennifer Holland are both descendants of Thebaud (Verdun) de Verdun.

This makes Thebaud the 15th great grandfather of Charles.

This makes Thebaud the 23rd great grandfather of Jennifer.
