    My dad shared his birth date with Adolf Hitler (April 20th), much to his consternation and the hilarity of my brother and I.

    DNA analysis is changing standard history . I think genealogy is mostly bunkum as famine, natural disasters, war, remarriages and infidelity must have broken many apparent bloodlines. And surnames, where they were used, were rather fluid until the taxman demanded accountability.

    And as Heinlein noted, on average your great-grandkids will only have 12.5% of your genes, and even that requires three women in a row to tell the truth.
