George Lucas was reported as my 8th cousin, once removed in # 362 through our MRCA, Valentin Ahl (1645-1700) – this is way deep in German research — 4 generations beyond my furthest documented ancestor, Magdalena Dockstader. In report # 5 he is my 7th cousin, twice removed, through our MRCA Anna Elizabeth Meyer (1680-1740), the grandmother of the same Magdalena Dockstader. The difference is that #362 goes through her mother’s lineage, # 5 goes through her father’s lineage. For George, #362 goes through his mother, Dorothy Ellinore Bomberger; #5 goes through his father, George Walton Lucas, Sr. If I track, I will start with # 5.
