Where are we Related?

Having played Genealogy for many years now, I have long since realized that we are all related. If you think about it, genetically speaking, the farther you go back in your family tree the more likely we are to find a connection. In the USA, if you have a Colonial Ancestor, your odds of connecting with another person who also has a Colonial Ancestor increases dramatically. I have found connections to Puritan ancestors of the Great Migration, many presidential ancestors, and 3 and 4 th cousins online and distant cousins here in Evergreen. It is a lot of fun and so, I say, ” I wonder WHERE we are related, not if we are related.”

I have been part of the Global Family Reunion project on Wikitree. If you care to learn more about the guy who started the ball rolling, visit AJ Jacobs website.
