My Great, great uncle was a German opera composer, Friedrich Von Flotow. Germans may know him. :D

John III Comyn, Lord of Badenoch and Alexander Cummings are both related to me...Cummings less so but I am definitely related to 'Red Comyn'. I could have been related to a King of Scotland AND apparently I read that my ancestors had quite a vested interest in the English throne too.

Remember the Battle of Inverurie!

Also I just remembered - Sir George Mansfield Smith-Cumming. The first director of the Secret Intelligence Service...MI6.

I'm not related to anyone famous, but my mother was telling me the other day about a few times Dio called her house as a kid. It seems my Aunt Nancy hung out with him for a time. :|

Only distantly and nobody anyone's probably ever heard of. Old western legends the 'Younger Brothers' apparently were some relation, and my dad's cousin was June Haver, who married Fred McMurray, Ironically my dad had 3 sons too.

And we're also apprently somehow related to the dude who invented Menthalatum.

The fact that I probably mispelled a few things here shows how distant they are and how little I care :-P
