Family Ties

Are Madonna and Celine Dion related?

That’s the claim being made by genealogist Troy Dunn, who traced back the ancestry of the two very different songbirds and found they shared roots.

Dunn, of MyFamily.com says that the company contacted both Madonna and Dion with the happy news. “Madonna’s people had no comment,” he said. “Celine’s people were horrified

Dunn also claims that George W. Bush and John Kerry are related. They’re distant cousins, he revealed on "The View," so the election “is one big family fight.”

--I guess the saying really is true--you can't pick your family!

5 well, madonna is originally from bay city, michigan (about 20 minutes from where i live), and went to school in metro detroit at rochester adams h.s., so she does actually come from rather humble/normal beginnings, though she'd never admit it.

6 That could explain where they both got the pipes. If you go back far enough, we're all related. Scary, huh?

8 Funny. If I found out that I was related to Celine, I think that I'd be the one who'd be horrified.
