AJ Jacobs

Mar 2014

Jacobs gives a humorous talk on discovering his ancestry through various genealogy sites and finding that we are all linked – no matter how distantly. He invites his audience to the biggest family reunion ever as he discusses the relations he has found along the way.

And my cousin, of course, the actor Kevin Bacon who is my first cousin’s twice removed’s wife’s niece’s husband’s first cousin once removed’s niece’s husband. So six degrees of Kevin Bacon, plus or minus several degrees.

AJ Jacobs: The world's largest family reunion … we're all invited!
