    Default Are you famous ?...

    I think this Robert the Bruce thing must be something people are told as a joke - unless he just got around a real lot! There's like 6 people here alone that say he's a relative!

    I'm not famous at all. Not related to anyone famous either. Boo!

    I'm related to the famous Scottish port Robert Burns, through one of his legitimate children. Yes he had a few illegitimate children as well. My grandmother had Burns as a middle name and I was going to do the same for DS but I forgot!

    I have proof so I know I'm legit

    We even have a published book about our family history "The Prior Family".
    Basically it dates back to day one and continued right up until my sister and I were born (we're documented in the book too).

    My inlaws used to brag about being related to an explorer. So when DD had to do a project she regonised the name and we tried to trace how we were related. Turns out they may somehow be related (through cousins of cousins) but not as directly as the like to brag.

    My name is Kelly . As a kid I was certain I was related to Ned, it only makes sense! ;-)
