    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!
