Taken from MSN article /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif (http://find.msn.com/search.aspx?q=Obama+and+Pitt+related&c=0909+Obama+and+Pitt+related&form=MSNIIT)

Are Barack Obama and Brat Pitt related?

Yep, albeit distantly. Obama and Pitt are ninth cousins, according to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, which traced their ancestral connection back to the 1700s when their common ancestor, Edwin Hickman, lived.



Researchers don't know much about Mr. Hickman, other than that he had two sons: James and Edwin Jr. But they do know that Obama and his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, are descendants of Hickman's son James. Brad Pitt, on the other hand, comes from Edwin Jr.'s side of the family.



Bonus: Pitt's not the only one with a politician in the family: Girlfriend and baby mama Angelina Jolie and Hillary Clinton are ninth cousins, twice removed

And there we go, a useless factoid that is also kinda interesting. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Sack,

I might buy the Obama - Brad Pit relations but there is no way that Jolie and Hillary share any chronosones. This would be too much to take. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I'm thinking the worst now....you and I could be distantly related, like ninth cousins that I tried twice to remove.
See, there is a rationale for (s)elective abortion, after all
