    This week, I received an email from wikitree.com that I am closely related to some
    famous people from Ontario, Canada.

    I am:

    19 degrees from Margaret Atwood - Canadian poet, novelist, literary critic, essayist, and
    environmental activist.

    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

    19 degrees from Justin Trudeau - Prime Minister

    22 degrees from Edwin Boyd - Canadian bank robber and leader of the "Boyd Gang"

    18 degrees from Barbara Hanley - Webbwood's first female Mayor

    31 degrees from Fanny Rosenfeld - Canada˙s Female Athlete of the Half Century

    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.

    If you would like to find your connections to famous people, you can start by giving me

    I have researched the ancestry for many persons interested in their family history.
