        Why? The number of people who are 11th cousins of GWB (or Obama) is probably in the hundreds of thousands.

          This is why I gave up on genealogy, when you go back six generations in your own immediate family, you're talking about 64 people: 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great-grandparents, 16 great-great grandparents, 32 great-great-great grandparents, 64 etc.

            6 generations equals 64 grandparents and about 100,000 6th cousins depending on the number of siblings in each generation. Go back 11 generations and it could be over a billion people. Go back 16 generations and everybody is related.
