My soon to be SIL has been in movies. The most notable being Cider House Rules.

[quote=AMSeccia;580801]the Daughters of the Revolution (or something on that order).

quote]
Did you ever see Bob Newhart's show where he had an inn? In one of the episodes , he was asked to give a talk on the historical aspect of the Inn to a group of Daughters of the Revolution, and he said they are daughters of the 3 day pass . I thought that was so funny.

We grew up thinking we were relatives of Stephen Foster, American folk song writer "(Oh, Susannah," among others), but then my aunt did more research, and we're not

My cousin is an actress and was on the "Drew Carey Show" once.

I could join the Daughters of the Revolution (through 3 ancestors!) *and* the Daughters of the Confederacy.

My DH's grandfather, Lloyd Moore, is the oldest living NASCAR driver. He left the sport in the 50's so that he could be more involved with raising his six girls. At 95, 96 in June, he has plenty of stories about the good old days!! :)

I know the show (always good for laughts), but don't remember that episode. I will watch for it!

To stay on topic, don't you think we're all famous in someone's eyes?

My husband's grandfather was related to Junior Johnson (yea, another NASCAR driver ) who, in the day, made his fair share of moonshine (you know, North Carolina, where the moon comes over the mountains in gallon jugs)....anyway, DH's grandfather went to jail for 3 years because he wouldn't name Junior Johnson as "the one".

Me, I'm Hungarian Gypsy - I don't want to know what thief in history I am related to

Nothing particularly impressive over here... I had a way back great uncle who led the first expedition down the entire length of the Colorado river.

Beyond that not really anything, unless you're an RN in the state of Indiana. I believe my great aunt helped to found the certification/licensing board for RNs in Indiana.

My relatives are famous for another reason. As the old saying goes "you can pick your friends, but can't pick your relatives', is true with me. My great grandmother was a distant cousin of Frank and Jesse James. I don't know much more than that because my grandfather said she would not speak of 'those boys' as she called them.
