I'm changing my cocktail choice, because

Robert Roy (Rob Roy) MacGregor is my 6th cousin, 10 times removed

Erica, Rob Roy is my 4th cousin 9 times removed.

That is weird! Rob Roy was the brother of my several great grandmas on my dad's side and it looks like we are probably related on my mom's side. I have to check this out! Pretty cool if so.

And Rob Roy looks JUST like my brother, but he doesn't see it...lol

I put in the recipe on how to make a perfect Rob Roy cocktail. Not sure about the operetta music though - I don't think I've ever heard it?

We should find the sheet music to it ....

More distant cousin for me......Rob Roy MacGregor is my 8th cousin 10 times removed.

Do you know how to reset the relations calculator thing? It keeps showing me as his 6th cousin 10 times removed on my mom's side (PORTER) , but my dad (LAKEY) shows as his 7th great nephew. Would that make me something like Rob Roy's 8th great nephew or what? Thanks!

Peter Rohel (c) can you suggest how to "walk the tree" ?

4/15/2013 at 8:12 PM

Thanks Erica. I just found the how to walk the tree and fixed mine, so I am Rob Roy's 8th Great Niece and his 6th cousin 10 times removed on totally (I thought...lol) separate sides. If anyone else need to know how to do it, I found it typed out here: http://help.geni.com/entries/22296642-Able-to-recalculate-the-Relat...

That's great. I've read Bjørn (& Pete) several times it just doesn't stay trained in my mind. The FAQ really help.

Rob Roy MacGregor is my 8th cousin 11 times removed through the Allen line. But I have a great grandfather named Robert Roy who named his first born son Robert MacGregor Roy, so I have a sneaky suspicion I have a more direct relationship to THE Robert Roy in this master profile. However, I am having a lot of trouble tracing that line. Can anyone help me? @ Robert Roy MacGregor

Isn't it great to discover these amazing ancestors?

Can anyone confirm if James Mohr MacGregor, the son of Rob Roy is definitely the father of Archibald MacGregor that fled to the colonies after the Battle of Culloden?

Erica, I guess I'll have to try a Rob Roy. He's my 4th cousin 9 times removed.
