    Related to a Founding Father? Or a European King? Or were your ancestors directly affected by any large-scale events in history? Like the Holocaust or a War?

    Tell us!!!

    My greatgreatgreatgreat x239048 uncle was the first man to get away with murder and plead temporary insanity. He killed Francis Scott Key's son, because he believed that he was having an affair with his wife. So he shot him. The son of the man who wrote the American Nation Anthem. And he got away with it because he was CRAZYYYY!!! Shifty

    I think my mom's grandmother was somehow related to the Kennedy Boy's great-grandmother.
    It's really fuzzy, but I think it still kinda counts...

    It's not long along like most of these, but my great grandfather was a really popular musician in the 1920's and wrote a really famous song called "The Music Goes 'Round and 'Round." He was a pretty cool dude.

    I'm a direct decendant of the Native American guy on that Iwo Jima statue. I think that's pretty cool. Oh, and Thomas Jefferson. Related distantly to him, too.
