What do Tom Hanks, Abraham Lincoln, and Elvis Presley have in common? Besides being famous, they are also all related—and you may be related to them too! With the FamilySearch Famous Relatives discovery experience, it is easier than ever to see how you’re connected to famous people in history.
How Does Famous Relatives Work?
The Famous Relatives activity searches the FamilySearch Family Tree for your possible connections to famous people in history. For the experience to work, you need a FamilySearch account (if you don’t already have one, you can create a free one) with at least four generations completed. For best results, fill out your family tree as much as possible, aiming for eight generations or more.
