Cousins

One of my mom's passions is genealogy. She spends a lot of time researching our family tree and often calls me all excited about filling in a missing piece of our heritage or meeting another long-lost relative online. I'm fascinated by our direct lineage but when she starts in on distant cousins or in-laws I can't help but get lost. Tonight she caught my attention, though. I'd like you to meet my 10th cousin...

George

And my other 10th cousin...

Barack

My husband, ever hard to impress, has always said if you go back far enough, we're ALL cousins. This probably proves his point.

Nice! Dad told me about this...who knew! Perhaps they will share their wealth with us someday? Free trip to DC would make me happy!
