What famous people, leaders and historical figures?

According to a quick internet search, most people of European Descent!

Lots of reading for you to do Daniel, if you look at all the search results ;-)

Thanks to WikiTree, I have discovered that I am a 34 greats grandson of Charlemagne. I am also a 31 greats grandson of Brian Boru.

In addition I am a distant cousin to 30 of the US Presidents, the closest being George Washington. Fortunately I am not (so far) a cousin of Trump or Nixon.

Wasn’t someone on WDYTYA found to be a descendant.

That is such a huge question - if the OP really wants to know they need to get started on the research. I would expect it to take years :-D

The OP was nearly 9 years ago, so he’s had time. ;-) ;-)

With WikiTree, much of the research has been done. It is just a question of connecting to a gateway ancestor. Plus, of course, checking tat the WikiTree path is correct.
