Elizabeth Taylor – sorta, maybe


Elizabeth Taylor is reported to be my 10th cousin once removed through our MRCA, the PRIVATE undefined parent of Thomas Clark (1570-1627) on my side and Edward Clarke (1576-1611) on her side.  It boggles the mind as to why someone in the 16th century is classed as PRIVATE.   There is little or no chance of them being a victim of identity theft!  The use of this #PLUG by #ancestry.com is very confusing.   To make matters worse, I only have verified my line through Mary Summers (1773-1860), my 4 times great grandmother.   PRIVATE is my 11th great grandparent.  Seven generations without proper evidence to support the lineage proposed.  A lot of added work to produce a vanity relationship.

    When I was in second grade, I was positive that the actress Elizabeth Taylor was my great-aunt. Sadly, she was not.

    Although I was disappointed then, my childish faux pas made for a good introduction for an article I wrote some years ago: https://kindredconnection.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/online_research/
