You Won’t Believe Who Romney’s Related To..

Ancestry.com

How many Commanders-in-Chief can you get in one family tree? When it’s former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s family tree, the answer is six.

According to Ancestry.com, the world’s largest online family history resource, Romney’s family tree connects him to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Pierce, Herbert Hoover, and both George H.W. and George W. Bush

1. so are most of us

if you count 10th cousin twice removed!

If you aren't descended directly from them, or less than 4th cousin it doesn't count, imho.

4. Which is why I am so tickled to be directly descended from both

Geoffrey Chaucer and King Henry VII.

11. I'd have to look it up. Not sure of the names, but Joan Beaufort rings a bell.

2. THEY CALL IT "IN BREEDING"

 

This genetic experiment finally goes wrong and the result is a less then desired thing. Who really took the college classes for this guy??? I do not think there is anything SPECIAL about this guy or those listed who did a good job for this country. The people listed are all LOSERS and IN BREEDERS...........

8. Did you notice President Franklin D. Roosevelt on that list, and do you

really consider him a "loser?

3. Me?

Romney and Bush both trace back to Anne Hutchinson, who was thrown out of the Masssachusetts Colony for her religious beliefs. Romney, Bush, and I are related through different children of hers.

As with many other colonial American settlers, Anne Hutchinson has numerous descendants, many of whom have reached great prominence. Three United States Presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, are among her descendants, as are the three United States Presidential aspirants Stephen A. Douglas, George W. Romney, and Willard Mitt Romney. Her grandson, Peleg Sanford, was a colonial governor of Rhode Island.

I descend from Peleg Sanford.

9. Herb Hoover was a cousin of mine....

So I guess Romney's mine, too, even if maybe much farther removed from than Hoover was(Hoover's cousin Ellen married a great-great-great uncle of mine). On the upside, I got FDR now.
