One of my Great Great Great (...?) Grandfathers served in the Civil War for the North, but I guess he probably wasn't "famous".

My Grandma dates several "famous people" in her day! Does that count?

My Husband is a direct descendant of Lord Admiral Nelson (Horatio Nelson). He was a pretty big deal from what I understand.

My sister-in-law was once married to Hugh Heffner's first cousin, and I never got to the grotto at the Playboy Mansion.
