Well I'll Be....

The more I dig into my family's past the stranger my reality becomes.
Take this for instance......

It seems the genealogical discoveries are coming fast and furiously for me this Summer.
I just found out this is my 7th cousin 1x removed....

And the Bush twins are my 8th cousins.
Yah I have to break the news to my 22 yr. old son that he's related to Jenna and Barbara......

One is still available and he isn't so closely related that he can't date her, right? ;-)

And to top it all off, this guy is also my 7th cousin.....

Yah....not so thrilled with that

So what do y'all think?  Should I ring up cousin John and Laura and see if they want to hang out with me?
Do you think they'd come over my place for a cook-out this Summer?

I bet I could get John out of a suit and into a Hawaiian shirt and some Bermuda shorts.
Come on cuz....loosen up!

Let's hope Laura brings George I hear he's the life of a party....well, not so much anymore.....



  1. What was that game 7 degrees to Brad Pitt or something like that? We are all somehow related in 7 generations... it was all the rage about 20 years ago.

  2. Six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon, I think and connected through film or something. Slugmama, you have interesting blood connections. If you ever need to make a living, you have a talent for genealogy research.

  3. That's really interesting. Hey, can't hurt to ask them out for a cookout. They may even come by!

  4. I love john mc cain. Mostly because anyone who survived a Vietnamese POW camp has earned my respect. However worry not, I couldn't vote for him in'08 as I am Canadian :)
