I bought 'Royalty for Commoners' on Amazon and it says I have royalty in my blood. Cant see whats so special about the 12 year old doing the same.

How many 12 year olds even know who the president is or even cares?
Well, it's a requirement in order to pass 8th grade, so I'd think by 12 most kids would know quite a number of presidents.

It's plausible.

The money is also to help her get to Buckingham Palace, so that's legit, too.

Plus, why shouldn't she try to profit from her research?

As for Obama - didn't he just turn his back on his white lineage by calling himself black instead of mixed race on the census form?

I've been addicted to genealogy since 1981 and most of my roots are in England. William, the future king, and I share a common ancestor through his mother, Diana...but do can millions of Brits. That's just the nature of having roots in a small island whose motto was "Go forth and multiply". That said, thanks to years of research in English records, I know those records get sketchy farther back than 1600.

I applaud BridgeAnne's determination and tenacity, but I'm curious as to how this 12-year-old was able to *verify* maternal lines with mostly non-existent records. Much of it HAS to be conjecture, which in the genealogy world is another word for MYTH.
