Living persons who are the most distant cousins from each other:

Williams-61032 and Cruz-788

posted by John Cruz
I think I have 350+ ancestors, and no connection to AJ :)
Typo I think:

auDNA testers with a GEDmatch ID who trace all their ancestors back at least four generations to an endogamous group.


Arcadian Arsenault-64

Peter, I think I or my kids might qualify for the au-dna 6+ generations also.

Past this I have 1 from Wales, 3 from Ireland, and the rest all English, and two unknown 3rd Great Grandfathers.

The tree of Japanese emperors is now connected to the Big Tree. This path (to a Japanese emperor, an ancestor of the current emperor), at 78 degrees, is currently longer than any of the paths currently in the list of “Ancestors with the greatest degree of separation from A.J.”.

Equal most distant cousins from each other so far, Lianne Lavoie and William Lindsay as being 24th Cousins.

This was reckoned as William F Lindsay (Lindsay-1783) being 23rd Cousin 1x removed from Lianne as on the 25 generation limit.

What do you think?

Lindsay-1778

On the most contributions in a month: Not only did Larry do this in one month, he did this in 78 minutes. 11 contributions per second without stopping for 78 minutes. It must have worn him down unfortunately. He's only made an average of 1 contribution per 48 hours since the hour of the miracle! :D
