Yes, Elle Fanning does appear to be my 9th cousin, once removed. Our MRCA, Edward Smith (1636-1693) is my documented 8th great grandfather. Of course, I am never sure how Ancestry has done those match ups with the Smith Surname — I have not verified Elle’s pedigree chart as presented. In any case, it will be interesting to see how long before Ancestry / We’re Related gets around to telling me that Dakota Fanning is also my 9th cousin, once removed. If nothing else, my grandchildren will be impressed with this link!
