CAN YOU BELIEVE THEY'RE RELATED!!!!!!
(abstracted from INTOUCHMAG)


Rock stars, royalty and rulers ---
for these celebrities, it's all in the family!!



ELVIS PRESLEY AND OPRAH WINFREY
"It's not as wild as you think, because on my mother's side, they're all Presleys," Oprah revealed on her show in 2003. Apparently, the daytime diva's great-grandfather Nelson Presley, was a salve owned by Elvis ancestors, one of whom may have been Nelson's father.

TOM HANKS AND ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There's truth to the rumor that Tom's got ties to Honest Abe. "We have a semi-direct connection," says the Oscar Winning actor. "Abraham Lincoln's mother was Nancy Hanks. His cousin was Dennis Hanks, and they call came from the area of Kentucky that my ancestors came from."

DAVY CROCKETT AND BILL CLINTON
Bill Clinton may have spent two terms in the White House, but he would be prefectly at home on the range: The former president is related to the king of the wild frontier, Davy Crockett. Besides the backwoodsman, Bubba has another impressive relative in his bloodline --- President Andrew Jackson!!

CELINE DION AND MADONNA
Michigan born Madonna and Canadian born Celine are 10th cousin once removed. But the singers didn't exactly thank their lucky stars when they learned they were kin. "Madonna's people had no comment". says genealogist Troy Dunn of myfamily.com. "Celine's people were horrified."

PRINCE CHARLES AND COUNT DRACULA
England's heir to the throne is related to 15th century Romanian ruler Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. According to reports, batty blood entered the British royal family through Queen Mary, whose ancestors were decendants of Vlad.
