Dh's dad drummed for the Scorpions when the band was first starting out in Germany in the early 70's. His pic is even on their website: http://www.the-scorpions.com/english/ His dad is Joe Wyman - 2nd pic down, he's in the front.
That is sooooooo cool!!

I'm going to guess. I don't watch the show, but I think I've heard that there is a sexy gardener on Desperate Housewives.

I'd really like to start researching this stuff better. Anyone got any tips?

My best friend is related somehow to Linda Blair (from the Exorcist) and her cousin was Sammy Johns, who wrote the song Chevy Van and gave her a special performance of it for her first birthday. She's not seen him in years, though.
Daniel Boone is my great great great great great great great grandfather by paternity, but i never knew my dad since we fled from him when i was a toddler and we think he has now died. I always thought it was interesting.

My guess is the sexy gardener is Jesse Metcalfe from Desperate Housewives. (I have season one on DVD.

My great-great uncle (my grandfather's uncle) was one of the men who watched over Lincoln's casket, and my best friend's great-great uncle was one of his pallbearers. Strange coincidences!

Other than that, there's rumors that my father's family is descended from Leif Erikson, though I have no way of verifying that, and my great-great-great uncle (father's mother's father's father's brother) was the king of Denmark, but we're all too distant now to have any stake in royal anything.
