I have done some geneaology, and I am related to this guy who helped build Maryland's capital. Garret Van Swearingen. http://www.stmaryscity.org/history/bio%20Garrett%20Van%20Sweringen.html.
Gromits little bro, we are related! I am sure not very much, but I am a descendant of King James on my great grandmother's side of the family, so that probably makes us like 15th cousins or something.
Despite my grandfather's side of the family being Boone's, we are not related to the famous frontiersmen and explorer of Kentucky, Daniel Boone.
I am related to the much less important Walter Boone, who despite living in Kentucky at the same time had absolutely no connection to Daniel Boone.
I am very distantly related to two U.S. presidents (J.K. Polk and J. Buchanan).

ian hecox is related to abraham lincon!!! no really, its true.
I'm related to Daniel Boone, George Washington, and Sidney Lanier, the poet.
I have a buddy who's traced his ancestry back to the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem near the time of Jesus' death and Resurrection.
How is it possibbe to reliably travery a lineage that far back? That seemslike that would be almost impossible. If he is though that is very cool!
Well, if Jesus really did Ressurect.
The Sanhedrin was like the Jewish Supreme Court it was at the height of it's power at the time of Jesus and the rise of the early Church until Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD, which scattered the Jews and pretty much destroyed any Jewish authority. I don't think the best historians know people who were on the Sanhedrin 2000 years ago. I think only a few names are known, Ciaphas Nicodemus and Gamaliel are the only names that I know. I would be really curious to know how he figured out that ancestry.
I would be aswell. That's pretty far back. Also, Ian, I saw you on Yahoo News.... xD
Really, was it the Great Day Live segment?
I could post the link, but I wouldn't without your permission, but yes, I think it was.
Your voice sounds alot different and cracky unlike the sqeaky high pitched voice of Twigs. xD Thank you, puberty.... I'm the same way. :P I always thought you voiced Twigs, and then I found out it was a different family member.... :P
But, congrats man! You'll go far with animation in your life. I hope I will, aswell.
Yeah, my dad voices Twigs and then it is pitched up. It has been busy I haven't done any Beaver Creek stuff for a while, I have 4 paid animation projects in right now thought, which is a lot of fun.
I have been animating for LEGO, I've made 3 2 minute animations for 30,000 dollars. Lots of money to be made in the animation buisness. :P
That's great! I haven't made that kind of money yet, but I did get contacted on friday from someone who is working with a major TV station (I won't say which one yet for confidentiality reasons) but it could mean some money and good exposure.
And Boinx, the software company that makes iStopMotion uses me for lot's of stuff. Which is nice for getting free software and equiment.
Yeah, I see what you mean. Exposure is really needed. How did you start, getting Beaver Creek noticed and all?
So, is this going to be on T.V.?
And sure, I may have made some more money, but haven't gotten the experience of going to Carnegie Hall. That's amazing.
Yeah, even if I am a complete failure for the rest of my life, I can always say "Yeah! My animation has been on the screen at Carnegie Hall" It may have been during the intro to the award show for 7 seconds, but it was there!
But don't say that! You have a bright future, probably brighter than mine! Where do you wish to work when you grow up? I used to be all about wanting to be rich. But then, I realized, if I can get a job working for Aardman, or whatever, doing STOP-MOTION, what I LOVE to do, it won't matter if I make just enough income to live happily. Because it won't even be a job for me. It would still be my hobby.
@ IantTimothy; My friend I was referring to is very ill, and has been for about 4 years. He spends most of his time confined to one room in his house by his illness and has had little to nothing to do but mess with the internet regarding the hobbies that interest him, ancestry being one of them. From his room, and also with his familiy's help, he's done a massive amount of research over the months, not only tracing but also checking the sources used to do the tracing. Since they have Jewish Ancestry, it made it actually rather easy to follow that route back as far as records would take them. Jewish people are usally good historians.
