Why we are all cousins
Danish genealogist Jacob Holdt has an interesting site that traces the roots of his family an almost unbelievable number of ancient people.
“Hitchhiking with my son, Daniel, to see Acropolis – built by Pericles – his 2nd cousin 82 times removed . Since then he has on his own hitchhiked all the way from Denmark to China to see the Great Wall which his 79th great-grandfather caused to be built.
Note: None of these relationships carry any genetic significance since we almost all descend from these famous people as I show here…”

History of Auchindrain
History of Auchindrain by Ted Lollis.
Auchindrain is an ancient village — or township — or communal tenancy — of about 20 buildings near Inveraray, Scotland, on the estate of the Dukes of Argyll. Auchindrain was not destroyed or materially changed by the Highland Clearances and is therefore the largest and most authentic old rural village in Scotland today. The buildings and adjacent fields have been preserved and are now an open-air museum of farming life.
