My Connections

Most of these lines go back many generations through profiles that I did not create or research (some of which are unsourced and one of which even says "may have been the son of"), so take this with a grain of salt :)

But here are some entertaining connections according to the WikiTree Relationship Finder Quick Links:

US Presidents:

British Prime Ministers:

  • Winston Churchill - 10th cousins once removed
  • Alexander Douglas-Home - 13th cousins once removed

Magna Carta Sureties

And... remember... grain of salt :)
