Print | Close this window Study finds Clinton related to Jolie and Obama to Pitt Wed Mar 26, 2008 1:54pm EDT LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The presidential candidates may have star qualities -- and they also have stars in their families, according to a genealogical study linking Hillary Clinton to Angelina Jolie and Barack Obama to Brad Pitt. The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) in Boston on Wednesday released a study in which it traced the family trees of all three presidential candidates to find they all had famous relatives, both dead and alive. It found Illinois Senator Barack Obama, whose mother is from Kansas, can claim at least six U.S. presidents as distant cousins, including George W. Bush and his father, Gerald R. Ford, Lyndon B. Johnson, Harry S. Truman, and James Madison. But other cousins include British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill -- and Brad Pitt who is a ninth cousin linked back Edwin Hickman who died in Virginia in 1769. "Obama's maternal ancestry includes the mid-Atlantic States and the South," said Christopher Child, a genealogist with NEHGC that dates back to 1845 and describes itself as the United States oldest and largest non-profit genealogical organization. Meanwhile his Democratic rival, New York Senator Hillary Clinton, shares a common ancestor with Pitt's partner, actress Angelina Jolie. Clinton and Jolie are ninth cousins twice removed linked by Jean Cusson of St. Sulpice, Quebec, who died in 1718. Child said Clinton is also a cousin of a number of famous people with French Canadian ancestry, including Madonna (ninth cousins linked by Pierre Gagne of Quebec who died in 1656) Celine Dion, and Alanis Morissette, as well as author Jack Kerouac. Another cousin is Camilla Parker-Bowles, wife of Prince Charles. "It is common to find people of French Canadian descent to be related to large numbers of other French Canadians, including these notables," said Child in a statement. Republican nominee, Arizona Senator John McCain, is a sixth cousin of Laura Bush but it was hard track other ancestors. "McCain's ancestry is almost entirely southern," said Child, adding this made notable connections harder to trace because of challenges to genealogists in that region. Child said having famous cousins makes for interesting conversation but it "should not influence voters." "But at a time when the race focuses on pointing out differences, the candidates may enjoy learning about famous cousins and their varied family histories," he said. Reuters/Nielsen © Reuters 2007.

    Pranks?

    Are you trying to question the reality of the Institute by writing it in quotes? How does me writing Ayn Rand Institute imply that i have no understanding of her views, i could question your understanding of her, but the response will simply consist of you reading what it says on wikipedia and then writing it in a poorly punctuated, asinine reply.

    Actually he can't. He is an idiot who is not well liked by his own squad. Brik has never been publicly embarrased at a debate tournament (that i know of) so i'm not really sure how someone from a different town could say whether or not he has been the butt end of a prank. Especially someone as perceptive as Ulysses
