Meryl Streep – 10th Cousin


In this installment of We’re Related, Meryl Streep is defined as my 10th Cousin through my 9th great grandmother, Alice ___________ Smith (1604-1681).  For whatever reason, Ancestry decided to make a secret of my 7th great grandfather’s identity and call him PRIVATE and designate him as the father of Jacob Smith (1706-1797) and the son of Edward Smith (1636-1693).   OK,  that means PRIVATE = Joseph Smith (1680-1734).  It is not a secret, but well documented.  With this quirk, my pedigree, as presented, is accurate.  So, Cousin Meryl, family tickets to your next premier?
