“On my mom’s side, I have a great-great-great-great-uncle, John Wesley Powell, who charted and mapped the Grand Canyon.”
“I don’t, but I bet if I talked with my grandparents, I’d hear some interesting stories.”
“I have an interest, but I haven’t researched any. I know it’s a lot easier to do now with websites.”
“I’ve heard that we have some connection to Leonardo da Vinci. I’d like to verify that. My mom has traced her family to Sicily.”
