The "We're Related" App

Since I just started blogging again and I've been using the We're Related app for a couple of weeks now, I have quite a few blog posts to make to catch up!

I LOVE the idea of the We're Related app by (naturally). I found out about it through Randy Seaver (Genea-Musings) and love getting my daily updates (sometimes 2 of them!).

For those of you who don't know what the app is, if you're in the genealogy-world, I'm surprised. But either way, if you haven't heard of it, it's just an app on your smartphone that uses your tree to connect you to celebrities (past & present). Some may just take it as it is- trust the work of, but I take it with a grain of salt...I always check the facts and the people they suggest. I have found 2 so far that I just cannot connect or take as true... I'll explain when I blog about those 2 celebrities...
