Wow, the things that genealogy can uncover is truly amazing. A genealogist has discovered that newly elected Massachusetts governor Scott Brown & our illustrious president Barack Obama are actually related. Now, I can’t see any physical resemblances between these 10th cousins.The only family trait that these cousins share are their spectacularly great looks. They also have made their mark in politics.
I wonder how they feel about being distant cousins. Kinda weird,isn’t it?
Here’s more from The Wall Street Journal:
President Barack Obama can add a new name to the list of things he calls Scott Brown: cousin.
Genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society said today that the president and the Republican senator-elect from Massachusetts are 10th cousins. Obama’s mother and Brown’s mother are both descendents of Richard Singletary of Haverhill, Mass., who died in 1687.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
