    peace

    I mean, we should all know by now that "Va. Company" (America) is a family business and the "resident" after any "selection" is the family member chosen to run the business....

    Most of the well known, whether hated or loved newscasters are probably family members.

    Though, I wouldn't trust anything from Utah (mormon Country), especially a ******* who mentions John Smith of the 17th century...who was also involved with the Virginia Co. at the time and the plans to colonize Virginia for PROFIT in the early 1600's.

    & we all know what happened in Jamestown, Virginia around 1619, RIGHT??

    It also says that Smith was against the persecution by the Quakers, but persecution from who??

    This is just more smoke.......how could they know if Obama is related to this guy if Barack Obama IS NOT EVEN HIS NAME!! Whose name did ancestry.com really research??

    How Brad Pitt And Barack Obama Are Related
    Rebecca Buckman, 05.14.09, 06:00 PM EDT
    Ancestry.com mines databases worldwide to enhance genealogy searches.

    ....The site now has about 3.4 million active users, more than a million of which are paying customers. But it still tries to drum up publicity to attract new users--and revenue. One tactic is using its team of in-house genealogy researchers to find interesting family links between celebrities, royalty and politicians. Some recent discoveries include genealogical links between Barack Obama and Brad Pitt, Sarah Palin and Franklin Roosevelt, and George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

    Genealogist Anastasia Tyler, who has done some of the celebrity work for Ancestry.com, says it's easiest to find common ties among people who have deep roots in the United States or in the British royal family. For celebrities and regular folk, most of the best family records date from 1850 to 1930. Before 1850, records were scarcer. After 1930, detailed records become tougher to find because of privacy concerns, Tyler says.

    One particularly rich mine for family-history buffs are World War I and World War II draft registration cards, she adds. In 1917 and 1918 alone, about 24 million U.S. men registered for the draft--meaning researchers are very likely to find a hit scouring World War I records for a male relative who was of draftable age at that time.

    Obama related to Pitt, Clinton to Jolie
    Researchers find remarkable family connections for the candidates


    updated 3/26/2008 7:35:27 PM ET 2008-03-26T23:35:27
    Share Print Font: +-BOSTON — This could make for one odd family reunion: Barack Obama is a distant cousin of actor Brad Pitt, and Hillary Rodham Clinton is related to Pitt's girlfriend, Angelina Jolie.

    Researchers at the New England Historic Genealogical Society found some remarkable family connections for the three presidential candidates — Democratic rivals Obama and Clinton, and Republican John McCain.

    Clinton, who is of French-Canadian descent on her mother's side, is also a distant cousin of singers Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette. Obama, the son of a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya, can call six U.S. presidents, including George W. Bush, his cousins. McCain is a sixth cousin of first lady Laura Bush.

    Genealogist Christopher Child said that while the candidates often focus on pointing out differences between them, their ancestry shows they are more alike than they think.

    "It shows that lots of different people can be related, people you wouldn't necessarily expect," Child said.

    Obama has a prolific presidential lineage that features Democrats and Republicans. His distant cousins include President George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry S. Truman and James Madison. Other Obama cousins include Vice President Dick Cheney, British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and Civil War General Robert E. Lee.

    "His kinships are across the political spectrum," Child said.

    .Child has spent the last three years tracing the candidates' genealogy, along with senior research scholar Gary Boyd Roberts, author of the 1989 book, "Ancestors of American Presidents."

    Clinton's distant cousins include beatnik author Jack Kerouac and Camilla Parker-Bowles, wife of Prince Charles of England.
    McCain's ancestry was more difficult to trace because records on his relatives were not as complete as records for the families of Obama and Clinton, Child said.

    Obama and President Bush are 10th cousins, once removed, linked by Samuel Hinkley of Cape Cod, who died in 1662.

    Pitt and Obama are ninth cousins, linked by Edwin Hickman, who died in Virginia in 1769.

    Clinton and Jolie are ninth cousins, twice removed, both related to Jean Cusson who died in St. Sulpice, Quebec, in 1718.

    ....I guess NEXT, they'll be telling us that Obama is also related to the "Elephant Man" and John Wayne Gacy or even "Jack The Ripper" (and they never even officially identified him). :cool:

    Obama Ancestry: Part of the Great Melting Pot
    Kin to Presidents, Kings and Slave Owners
    Sep 1, 2008 Rosemary E. Bachelor

    Barack Obama's ancestry is American melting pot, making him distant cousin to Katharine Hepburn, Brad Pitt, Christopher Reeve, Winston Churchill and astronaut John Glenn.

    ...
    Newspapers have reported that Barack has royal African ancestry. Such claims are difficult to prove. He comes from the Kenyan Luo tribe. Since much African ancestry is passed down in verbal form, little documentation exists. In addition, until recent generations Kenyans had but one name.

    It is possible that he descends from one or more tribal chieftains. The route back starts with these names: Barack Obama Sr., Onyango, Obama, Opiyo, Okoth, Obongo, Otondi and Ogelo, says William A. Reitwiesner, a Library of Congress worker who dabbles in genealogy

    ....
    Are you related to Obama? If you belong to the New York Dutch family of Vreeland, the Dunhams or Demarests from New Jersey, or the early Browning, Bunch, Hickman, Hudson, Lewis or Perkins families of Virginia, chances are you are distant kin.

    If you had ancestors living in one of the original colonies in 1660, chances are good that you are related to many well known people. Why? Because there were only about 75,000 people then living in what became the United States. They have millions of descendants

    And THIS part is especially significant because any African Americans who are descended from these SLAVE-OWNING families may possibly be distantly related to Obama as well, and, in turn, also distantly related to all the other White people he's distantly related to: Palin, Bush, Limbaugh, Brad Pitt, etc...

    The crux of it is that most slave-descendants have no or little documentation to prove it.
