Obama Related to Pitt, Clinton to Jolie

BOSTON (March 25) - This could make for one odd family reunion: Barack Obama is a distant cousin of actor Brad Pitt, and Hillary Rodham Clinton is related to Pitt's girlfriend, Angelina Jolie.


Researchers revealed that presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain have some famous relatives. Apparently, Obama is a distant cousin of Brad Pitt, and Clinton is a far-off relative of Angelina Jolie. Click through to find out who else is in their family trees.
First question: Who's a distant cousin of Madonna?
Researchers at the New England Historic Genealogical Society found some remarkable family connections for the three presidential candidates - Democratic rivals Obama and Clinton, and Republican John McCain.

Clinton, who is of French-Canadian descent on her mother's side, is also a distant cousin of singers Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette. Obama, the son of a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya, can call six U.S. presidents, including George W. Bush, his cousins. McCain is a sixth cousin of first lady Laura Bush.

Genealogist Christopher Child said that while the candidates often focus on pointing out differences between them, their ancestry shows they are more alike than they think.

"It shows that lots of different people can be related, people you wouldn't necessarily expect," Child said.

Obama has a prolific presidential lineage that features Democrats and Republicans. His distant cousins include President George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry S. Truman and James Madison. Other Obama cousins include Vice President Dick Cheney, British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and Civil War General Robert E. Lee.

"His kinships are across the political spectrum," Child said.

While these studies were done by a respected genealogist, mistakes can happen. I once viewed a family site that had "proof" we were related to Al Gore. I checked two other sites devoted to Gore and could find no link. Wheeeew!

But, yes, almost all of us whose families came before there was a United States are related more closely than we might think.

And you believe that all mankind that we see today came from these ten or so holy rafters?

the Bible says:
Genesis 9:1,18-19
1) And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them "Be fruitful and multiple, and fill the earth."
18) "Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Ham was the father of Canaan.
19) These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated."
