At the bookstore, I saw a poster that said that President and all of the past U.S. presidents (except Martin Van Buren) were descended from John "Lackland" Plantagenet - King of England and signer of the Magna Carta!
Wow - it's pretty significant that a 12 year old Bridge Anne D'Avignon of Salinas CA and her grandfather Sam Wattles of Rosamond (who has studied Presidential genealogy for 60 years) discovered this association.
The poster showed that all of the U.S. Presidents (except Van Buren) have the common ancestor. How incredible is that?
