Cute and I wish I had at least one.


Reminds me of 25 years ago when I worked at the local Family History Center after the Pequots opened the Foxwoods Casino. We were flooded with people determined to prove their Native American Ancestry…even if they were not claiming to be Pequot. I remember always wanting to say…just because you think (most likely wrongly) that Great Great Grandma was a Native American from Quebec doesn’t mean you will get Casino Millions.


If they’re rich, famous, infamous, or have so much as a smidgeon of royal, noble, or aristocratic blood, there is absolutely no chance of them being related in any way whatsoever to me


It certainly does happen. We have had a few people come into our genealogy library claiming kinship to a deceased person to whom they feel they are entitled to money from their estate, an estate that has long been settled.
