Just did a DNA test to help me find family history. Got my results back and looking thru the list of DISTANT cousins and the name Michael Waltrip pops up along with the name Margaret Waltrip. I think to myself "nah different Waltrips". I look up the name Margaret Waltrip and find out that Margaret was Michael's mother. I guess maybe it is THAT family of Waltrips. I guess it kinda makes sense being that Owensboro and Louisville Kentucky are not too far apart.

I've been thinking of doing the same thing, for the same reason. I know very little about my family history, my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's when I was 19 and I grew up hundreds of miles from the rest of our family so I never learned the family history or even who all my cousins on my dad's side were.

Tom, I did the 23andMe test and I think I will do the Ancestry test as well. They only connect with the relatives that have done their particular test so important connections can be missed if they used a different test than you.

change your name, enter the witness protection program. disappear completely. these are just a few options i'd consider if I found out I was any kin to Mikey.

Got real lucky. A cousin did research all the way back to family's roots in Ireland and wrote a 2 volume book set!!!

My cousin has the history of my father's family, going back 100+ years to Czarist Russia, Lithuania, and Poland. It seems I'm descended from a long line of drunks, screw - ups, and thugs !!! Rolling Eyes

On my dad's side of the family my great, great, great, great uncle is Devil Anse Hatfield. Of the Hatfield's & McCoy's fame... And on my mom's side, I'm related to former President Richard Nixon... Although, I've known this info since my youth. My dad is big into the family tree stuff. He had traced the family back to it roots across the pond, as they say...

When I was younger. My dads family traces it's history back to the 1600s in bloody old england and I am related to Daniel Boone. On my my moms side, back to the early 1700s. On Moms side, one of her relatives is the idiot that cracked the Liberty Bell. Apparently, during that time, his job was to ring the liberty bell.

Oh yea -- I forgot. Embarassed My mom was a second cousin to actor Gregory Peck. My maternal grandmothers' maiden name was Peck, and NE Ohio was full of Pecks. My 1st cousin on my mom's side, in his early days, was a ringer for Gregory Peck.
