This week, I received an email from wikitree.com that I am closely related to some
famous people from Ontario, Canada.
19 degrees from Margaret Atwood - Canadian poet, novelist, literary critic, essayist, and
16 degrees from Jim Carrey - Canadian-American actor, comedian and artist
17 degrees from Elsie Knott - Elsie Taylor Knot was the first woman in Canada to be
elected as Chief of a First Nation.
24 degrees from Gordon Lightfoot - Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist
23 degrees from Alton Parker - the first black detective in Canada
22 degrees from Beatrice Tillman - famous Black History proponent
22 degrees from Jenny Trout - first woman physician licensed to practice in Canada

22 degrees from Edwin Boyd - Canadian bank robber and leader of the "Boyd Gang"
18 degrees from Barbara Hanley - Webbwood's first female Mayor

It is always interesting to visit the past to see how we are related to each other. I have
some ancestors that were black, bank robbers, politicians physicians, detectives, actors,
comedians. I guess that I am a collection of all of them.
