Ronald Reagan – my teflon cousin?


President Ronald Reagan is reported to be my 8th cousin, once removed, through our MRCA, Thomas Harris (1641-1711), the proposed grandfather of Dinah Harris (1702-1796), my 6 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  Having to research Grandmother Harris for two more generations is not the daunting portion of report # 416 from We’re Related.  In the lineage reported for the President, they show his 4 times great grandfather, Job Winslow (1738-1809) being born 27 years AFTER his mother, Ruth Spencer (1711-1725), DIED.  Why doesn’t Ancestry provide a Consistencey Checker that goes TILT when these kinds of entries are made?

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
