How do I check to see if I am related to the celebrities? When I go into a celebrity profile they all say "You are connected to (name)". But surely, I am not related to them all. How can I find out who is REALLY related?

Thanks

Pressing the label of "How are you related"

THE JETS (this link takes you to a picture page, where I tagged all the members)

They were a prominent 1980s pop-group and America's first R&B, Pop Polynesian Group of Tongan descent. They descend from the Wolfgramm's of Germany who made their way over to Tonga, and their descendants have made it to New Zealand, United States of America, Australia, all over...

I just did the tree for Robert Louis Stevenson. He's a famous Author. He wrote the famed the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde among a lot of other famous stories.

Sebastian Bach

I was a huge fan of Skid Row back in the 1990s. I was totally in love with Sebastian Bach...haha....

Anyway, I decided to build his tree. :)

LOL Peter.

Yes, Sebastian Bach was born in the Bahamas! I got that from his actual website on an article he wrote about his father. His father was an art teacher there, and met his mom there who was also an artist. His mom was from Ontario, Canada (I wish I could do her line, because she's of French-Canadian descent), and his father is from Missouri, raised in California. His father's family goes back to Norway, Germany and Belgium...

I keep wanting to make some trees for notable people, but I haven't yet mastered creating profiles for non-relatives. Do we have a tutorial somewhere?
