Poor cousins downunder

Having read what my genimates from across the seas have to say about Ancestry's We're  Related App I thought I'd  join the fun, download it and play.

I was thwarted  -  the app is not available for download  in Australia.

Interesting but it seems that the app has much misinformation.

In my view a more successful way to look at how you might be connected to famous people is wikitree which has a relationship calculator.

So for example you can check how you are related to royalty or AJ Jacobs who was promoting the notion of we are all connected https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Connection&action=connect&person1Name=Jacobs-2987&person2Name=Champion_de_Crespigny-8 (26 degrees via several marriages so no blood relation ! ;). )

I have also recently had fun playing with the Wikitree calculator that Anne mentions above

I'm a fan of AJ Jacobs who I got to interview at Rootstech but I'm not sure that I'm really his cousin.

Not a cousin maybe but we are all connected just sometimes we haven't figured out how yet ;)
