Jimi's grandmother Nora Hendrix lived to be 100. Wow!

That's awesome and sad considering how early his life ended.

From his Wikipedia entry, it looks like there's a lot of genealogical information in the Shapiro, Glebbeek book, "Jimi Hendrix, Electric Gypsy".

Also, several relatives are mentioned involving the court case surrounding his estate and catalog.

I'm getting the distinct impression of "family tree fantasyland" in the stories about Jimi's background.  The story of Bertran Philander Ross Hendricks' conception and his rich, white parentage is told on page 7 of the Shapiro, Glebbeek book as if it were true: (http://books.google.com/books?id=JB1W2dn31rwC&pg=PA7#v=onepage&q&f=false).  There's also a very typical Indian Princess story in there, too, on page 6.  I don't know whether any actual research went into these stories, but at this point I am doubtful that they're anything more than wishful thinking.

Here is a blog article from Geni that features Jimi Hendrix.  It has him connected to Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Gates, Robert E. Lee, President Obama and Harald I Halvdansson.
