    Nonsense.

    The chances of all the presidents being related is astronomical.
    ...and probably impossible to determine.

    Can you imagine the data base that would be necessary to determine
    that information?

    Does such a data base even exist, and how did that little girl get access to it?

    Somebody needs to break the news to that little girl that she's wrong.

    I can't believe some of the crap that people fall for.

    We're all related if you go back far enough. It had already been proven that 22 presidents were related and that was apparently only going back through male parents. This girl added female parents to the search. Anyone that says the odds are "astronomical" doesn't understand how trees work. It's not like flipping a coin.

    Of course such databases exist. Ever hear of the MORMONS? They are all about genealogy. My parents searched our family trees back centuries back in the days before the Internet. It's quite possible.

    I might be wrong (there's a first time for everything), but I just don't believe it.

    JFrame, you've always displayed a firm grasp of reality and I don't question that now. Of course I could be on the wrong side of the majority here, but you can't quote indiscriminately. Are we not all "related"?

    Here's your sign. That arrogance can only come from one place.

    No, all apologies are mine. I lumped your opinions with those of another poster. True or not, that's not fair. My bad.

    No prob -- however, I was starting to attribute all sorts of witty and ironic satire to your question that evidently weren't there. And here, I was pegging you as a regular Oscar Wilde... [​IMG]

    I'm clueless as well -- genealogy was never my thing...
