    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.

    Daniel Boone was my uncle somewhere back along the line, or so I've been told.

    I'm descended from a long line of unknown drunkards and ruffians - as most Irish are.

    Actually, while my oldest was doing her "foreign" semester in London, she made quite a few visits to Ireland. She did some research and supposedly, my lineage on my Dad's side goes back to some low level noble in County Cork...

    My great-great-great-(Maybe one more great) grandmother was a prostitute with a drug habit. Which explains all my cousins.
