    Years ago I watched an episode of Conan and saw an interview with the
    founder of http://wikitree.com He pointed out that Conan was related to several Presidents, and also related to his sidekick Andy Richter.

    I immediately went online and uploaded my Gedcom. About 2 weeks later I
    started receiving emails pointing out my relationship to well-known
    celebrities and statesmen. Each week I receive a Family News
    enumerating my relationships. 21 degrees from Henry VIII of England was
    the first.

    I highly recommend this free site to help you do your research, and get
    regular helpful updates as your family tree continues to grow.

    My question would be just how accurate it is.

    Each person uploads their Gedcom of verifiable information, and they then get added to
    a huge database of other verifiable individuals. Plus, there are teams of researchers
    whose goal it is to combine this information to create one global connection.

    I trust the information simply because of the dedication they have.
