Default Kids asking about Family History

Every kid wants to know if someone Famous is in their lineage. My Family can be traced back, thanks to my father too many characters in English History. Lord Byron and Col. John Henry Patterson are two. Are there any ghosts in your family?

I am related to Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin and Benedict Arnold.

Perhaps that explains why I like Led Zeppelin and Eggs Benedict so much.

There is more to the total story than Wikipedia knows.
