  1. i heard rumours all my life that i was “shirt-tail” related to somebody famous (my mother was convinced that it was jesse james, but she was wrong)… i never was able to track down exactly who it was until i started using GRAMPS, the Genealogical Research Analysis Management Programing System, which is free, multi-platform software…
