Matthew McConaughey – ‘Alright, Alright, Alright’


The latest notice (#388) tells me that Matthew McConaughey is my 9th cousin through our MRCA, Thomas Deane (1639-1697), the proposed father of my 7 times great grandmother Lydia Dean (1679-1726), the furthest documented ancestor I have in this lineage.  We’re Related reports that Grandmother Lydia had a sister, Hannah Dean (1673-xxxx) who is the connector to the lineage of Matthew.   So, TO DO:  Did Lydia have a sister, Hannah?  Was the father of Lydia Thomas Deane?  Alright, Alright, Alright. I will add it to the list!

    Very interesting, do you know how they come up with the proposed ancestor? Is it from other accounts?

      Yes, they use other subscriber’s trees and send them out as their “proof” which they are NOT. One needs to take these notices with much more than a grain of salt. Luckily, I live in metro-Detroit and we are sitting on top of one of the largest Salt mines, so there is no end to the salt I can sprinkle on these notifications. Those that run very close, I can add to my research TO DO list and try to verify if they are correct.
