I was quite excited to see that Johnny Depp was “Possibly” an eighth cousin, according the “We’re Related App” and Ancestry.ca, through my Babcock family, again, but pretty cool. Like most people I’ve been entertained by his cocky characters and extreme persona. Love it. love him.
The only thing is that he’s probably not my eight cousin, because there is an error in his family tree, just below the link with the Babcock clan.
I didn’t do a whole lot of checking but I still spent a couple of hours trying to correct the error, or see if there is a “work around” the broken link. but alas, no luck so far.
The We’re Related App is great, but it’s not perfect, nor does it pretend to be. Take the referrals somewhat lightly, but definitely check them out yourself. The more you work at it, the better your genealogy skills will develop, and the more accurate your own family tree will become.
I still love Johnny Depp, even if he’s not my cousin.
