A while back I posted about how I was distantly related to a well-known rock star of my youth. That connection, doubtless the result of hours of research, was made by someone else.
It's true that the Internet has made huge amounts of genealogical material available at the click of a mouse but, in some ways, sorting through the mounds of information available is even tougher than in the pre-computer era.
But, thankfully, Rhonda R. McClure over at Genealogy.com has made it possible to easily check out the family tree of one of America's most renowned entertainment icons, Walt Disney, back to the 17th century.
Even if this information doesn't help you leverage a few complimentary passes to the Magic Kingdom, it's still fun to see if you're related to Uncle Walt.
While you're there, check out the family trees of other celebrities, like Brad Pitt, Shania Twain or Donald Trump. Who knows where it might lead.
