Find Out If You Are Related To Anyone Famous at OneGreatFamily

    relationship-calculatorAre you a descendant of a notable character in history? Many families tell stories of a famous ancestor – a king or explorer, an actor or rogue – and a surprising number of these family legends turn out to be true. So how can you find out about your own ancestral celebrities?

    For many historical figures, a great deal of family history research has been done already. If your own family tree leads back to one of these individuals, then verifying the story can be simple. At OneGreatFamily, we have the genealogies of some famous people. You can find their genealogies by visiting the OneGreatFamily Famous Ancestors Page.

    We have also developed an amazing tool for our members to use called the Relationship Calculator Dashboard to see if you are related to any famous person.

    The Relationship Calculator allows you to see whether or not a relationship exists between any two people in the OneGreatFamily database and will display a chart showing both people’s relationship to their common ancestor.

    If a famous ancestor’s family tree is not well documented, you can do the research yourself to establish the line of descent. Such work will be simpler if you have access to a research library, collections of private papers, or the help of a known descendant.

    If your family tree doesn’t seem to link up, but you still believe you are a descendant, you may have other ways to discover if the claim is true. Family papers and documents may tell the story of an illicit relationship – one not formally acknowledged by the official records, but factual nonetheless. Some claims of being a descendant can be verified or disproved by DNA analysis, but that requires the cooperation of the acknowledged family.

    The simplest way to discover your famous ancestors is to share the research done by other descendants. At OneGreatFamily we have a great way to collaborate with others to learn more about your ancestors.

    Visit OneGreatFamily today to learn about the many ways we are unique and can help you find your ancestors – your famous ancestors. Finding out this information can make your genealogy exciting!

    I am related to someone extremely famous. I am a direct descendant of Sir Isaac Newton’s grandfather. As you may know, Sir Isaac had no children and his father only had 1 child and that was Sir Isaac. Sir Isaac’s father died before Isaac was born (mother Hannah Ayscough was still pregnant) I not only can prove this through documentation but also through DNA that has been linked to others who are in the same bloodline. I have 3 little boys who were very much like Isaac Newton may have been as a kid. All 3 are diagnosed autistic.

    You are related to everyone with the same last name as you if it their real last name. Even if you don’t know how. Some people say they are not related because they don’t know how but that doesn’t mean they are not related.

    Good lord, when I traced my family back, I found out I am a direct descendant of almost every evil stereotype you can think of. King John (Yes, that one in Robin Hood) is my twentieth Great-grandfather. Isabella of France (My fifteenth great-grandmother) was the first “beautiful but really very evil female antagonist.” I’m sure most of you have heard of the “Princes in the Tower” (if not, Google). Their murderer, their uncle, was in fact my I-forget-how-many-greats great-uncle. I don’t know if that last one counts as a direct descendant, but I’m still related to him. But, ya know, this is all negated by the fact that one of my ancestors was responsible for the Gordon Setter. That’s an adorable dog breed.
