I did something wrong! So this is my second go. I was astounded to get an email indicating that I am a distant cousin of Princess Diana. I admired her honesty and courage and that her approach to child raising was so similar to mine. Wowza!
I have been fortunate to have found and used Family Search over the years to build my family tree at no cost. Now you have told me and shown me how I am related to William Shakespeare! Amazing!
Thank you for making it possible and easy to find links to the past.
I love FamilySearch! It was amazing to receive an email last week and find out how I am related to William Shakespeare! It makes perfect sense, too! I can see where the poet's, writer's and musicians in that line get their gift!
I love the work you do to find how we relate to famous people. I got a chart showing that I am related to Jane Austen. From my high school days, I loved reading Jane Austen books. I have a set of movies made in Britain from her books. I love them. If I am related to her, then I know why I love her books so much. I have a problem with LDS in that when they send me these charts showing how I descend from people, my name is at the bottom as Patricia Lee De Hart, which is my name, but you have my year of birth as 1929, and me married to William Rosser Crafton, Jr. My 94 year old sister is Peggy Lou De Hart (Crafton) and she was born in 1929, and married and divorced from William Rosser Crafton, Jr. I was born in 1939, and married to Donald Gillespie Long and have been for over 60 years. I would like someone to change this because it makes some of the information you send me wrong.
I do thank you for your hard work in finding famous people that we could be related to. It is very interesting and exciting.
