Ancestry.com has a new beta feature whereby you can discover your relationship to famous historical personages. The feature works by gathering data from the One World Tree and comparing it to your own ancestry. I accessed it through a link in my own uploaded family tree at Ancestry.com. If you like, I can invite you to view my tree if you e-mail me or give me your Ancestry.com username. Caveat: the information in the One World Tree is only as reliable as the genealogists who shared that information, so there are errors. In fact, I think I have found a few, but I didn’t go over the information with a fine-toothed comb.
