We’re Related – Or, Are We?

We’re Related is an app connected to Ancestry.com.  It is available through iTunes and Google Play.  I learned about this app from a post on GeneaMusings.  It is a great site!

It searches through the trees on the Ancestry website to find connections between the various trees to help you find more relatives.  It shows famous potential relatives as well as your Facebook friends if they have a tree on Ancestry.com

It has not shown me any common ancestors with Facebook friends yet (apparently none of my Facebook friends have family trees on Ancestry), but it shows me at least one famous potential relative each day.

We’re Related – Or, Are We? is going to be a weekly posting sharing with you the potential relatives that Ancestry has shown me via their We’re Related app. All of these are *potential* relatives.  None of the relationships have been proven or confirmed yet.

As I am able to prove or disprove each potential relationship, I will make a post about what I find and will cross-link the posts.

  1. I like these possible relatives. I love Jay Leno and Sandra Bullock and Chris Pine are good too.

    1. Thank you. I remember Sandra Bullock from Blindside. That was a great movie. Jay Leno is pretty funny. I knew right off which of my lines he would be through, just by the jaw line. :) I had never heard of the Pine guy, but I don't ever go to movies or watch regular television anymore.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed evening.
