Ira Murchison winner of Gold medal in 1956 Olympics

I still have a lot of family in Chicago that I have yet to meet. I remember having a magazine with Ira on the cover running. I wish I still had that. Anyone else have a notable person in your family in Wiki?

Don't know if it's in the wiki, but my mother pointed out to me the other day that the kids on that Princes of Bel Air show are my cousins (their mother is our "famous" relative).

Sigh.

I have one, but it was very, very, very long time ago.

This is the hazards of genelaogy.

People used to say that everybody in France had Charlemagnes as ancestor, in my case it's true.

My very small cousin (6th degree) is also very well known :

Wiki yields nothing (!), although that should be expected since my last name was invented about 70 years ago. I'm working to get it in there.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constan..._%28emperor%29

I read an article a while back that proved mathematically that all white people are decendants of Constantine (and every other European who lived more than 800 years ago and has living decendants - 80% have living decendants, 20% have none).

It was in a print magazine, but this is similar:

If you go back 2000 years, the same applies to every person on the globe, so everyone reading this is a decendant of Khufu:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khufu

And Jesus too, if he had kids and the line survived to the present day. So even the most lily white KKK member has black ancestors in the recent past, and not long enough ago to have any evolutionary differences - to me anyway, this serves as proof that differences between the races are cosmetic and social only.

Here is one my mom claims as a relative, Black Douglas:

Exactly, I had the chance that my mom proved your point via her huge genealogy study.
