I enjoyed seeing Rob Lowe's geneiology journey last night on Who Do You Think You Are. I was surprised to learn today we are cousins (16th once removed). It only took going back almost 500 years to find our grandmother's were half sisters. Computerized geneology is amazing. Our relarionship is on his father's side of the family.

I have been learning new sources of records by watching the show. Last night Rob visited the Daughter's of the American Revolution library in Washington, D.C. I will be checking that out asI have a grandfather, many greats back, that fought in the American Revolutionary War also. Doing geneology has brought American History alive for me.

Who else out there got the Rob Lowe is your relative Geni e-mail?

Rob is my 24 cousin thrice removed. I must agree with Rhonda, discovering all these familymembers and relatives really makes history interesting. And you guys should check out the european lines as well, theres a LOT to discover yet! =)

Thanks for the feedback.I checked it out Katherie we are cousins too. 24th Cousins 4 times removed with Urraea de Portugal being our common ancestor. .

I have been spending my time gathering sources on my ancestor William Brewster the elder on the Mayflower pilgrims to America, but my family has a lot of interesting European connections too, Like my 20th great grandfather, King Edward the First, 24th great grandfather, William the Conquer and cousins Napoleon and King Christian the 2nd of Denmark. My family was not aware we had English heritage until I poked around the mormon website several years ago. It's very fascinating to us.

I see you are in Norway. My grandmother was Finn.

I am having fun finding new cousins here.

It looks like Terri is the closest to Rob so far, being a 13th cousin. Terri we are 16th cousins once removed via our relative Adam ap Howell Turberville a 17th great grandfather.

Rebecca we are 24th cousins once removed with King Ranald MacSorely (Kintryre Scotland) our 23rd great grandfather. Your photo resembles my fair haired family.

Any more cousins out there?

Oh, darn! I didn't get one of those "Rob Lowe is your cousin" emails! Just watched the episode with my daughter, earlier this afternoon. Certainly my favorite episode so far. I'd sure like to visit the D.A.R. library, someday!
