Alex is German, Gaelic, British, Scandinavian, Polish, Ashkenazic, Czechoslovakian, Neanderthal, and Iberian.

Introduction

I have studied my family history and heritage for years and in great depth. That being said, I had the desire to document, organize, and share some of the known surnames in my family. Take a look; we may be relatively closely related my relatively related relatives!

A

Adams
Allen
Amos
Angleton
Antkowiak
Armington

Inserted Note

I enjoy how one of the surnames in my family tree is biblical. The Book of Amos is one of the texts typically included in the Old Testament and in the Jewish Tanakh. The prophet Amos is an important figure for many Jews, Christians, and other religious groups.

Baker

Barmann

Inserted Note

It is an item of curiosity to wonder how closely I am related to Tom Baker. The television series "Doctor Who" has been on the the better part of more than 50 years with 14 actors to play the Doctor, but the fourth (Tom Baker) is many people's favorite!

Inserted Note

I am grateful to be related to the Chaffees. The "Chaffee" name is well known in the military, NASA, and to some historians. My 11th great-grandfather Thomas Chafe was a relatively famous politician from the 1600s who has his own Wikipedia page! Thomas is far from the only Chaffee to have a place on Wikipedia. We members of the Chaffee family even possess our own family crest.

C

Chaffin
Charest
Chladkova
Choate
Clark

Inserted Note

I wonder how closely I am related to Second Lieutenant William Clark. The Lewis and Clark Expedition is a vert important memory for many citizens in the United States of America. This particular Clark is well known to a number of school children throughout our nation.

Inserted Note

The name Dvorak may hold some significance to some people. I am relatively closely related to the famous composer Anton Dvorak. Some of Anton's musical works can be found on Youtube. Antonin Leopold Dvorak is my 4th great-uncle. His image and his work are fairly well known far and wide.

Inserted Note

I would like to know if the model Ashley Graham isn't an eighth, ninth, or tenth cousin. It would be spectacular if her relation to myself were even closer than that! She is a very beautiful woman with a gorgeous smile. A person that attractive must be a close member of my family!

H

Handy
Hans
Hardesty
Harmon
Hathaway

Inserted Note

Anne Jacqueline Hathaway is one of the most gorgeous creatures to have existed since we rose from the primordial soup. It is an honor to share relations somewhere in my tree with such a wonderful and talented individual. Who doesn't love Anne Hathaway's work?

Inserted Note

A certain Albert Hoffman was one who was the first person known to make lysergic acid diethylamide. This drug could potentially hold medical benefits in the future. One may note that a lot of very careful study is needed.

McDonald

Inserted Note

I am curious to know how closely related I am to the McDonald brothers who initiated the now famous chain of restaurants. McDonald's is now a huge corporate entity with awesome shareholder advantages and restaurants all over the world. It would be very neat to be a cousin to Richard and Maurice.

M

McFarlan
McKinley
McKnight
McLean
McRoy

Inserted Note

It would be very cool to find a close familial relationship to the founder of the famous television series "Family Guy"; that is, Seth McFarlane. "Family Guy" is not Seth's only artistic project. However, it may be his most well-known. "The Orville" is arguably Seth's best work, though such speculation is very relative.

Inserted Note

It is curious to ponder how closely I could be related to the famous actor and comedian Mike Myers. Mr. Meyers has played roles in a number of famous films, including "Wayne's World" and "Shrek". He also played multiple parts in the Austin Powers movies.

Inserted Note

One of my ancestors was a Sheldon who was actually born in Ireland. I love my Irish heritage. There should be no shame in being Irish, although the Irish haven't always been accepted in the United States.

I would love to know just how many individuals from the continent of Asia are my semi-distant cousins.

Inserted Note

It is interesting that I went to high school with a Zimmerman. It is surprising how small the world seems to become as time and experience fill my awareness.

Are we closely related?
