Are President Obama & Sarah Palin Related???
No, not play cousins. According to the popular family-finding website Ancestry.com, President Obama and Sarah Palin are somehow blood related. The site claims Obama could technically be kin to Rush Limbaugh and George W. Bush, too.
More specifically, the site claims that Obama and Palin are 10th cousins through an ancestor named John Smith. The president is also 10th cousins (once removed) with Limbaugh through Richmond Terrell.
According to the site, which claims to be the world’s largest online family history resource, the Bush family could hypothetically claim both Obama and Palin, who are each 11th cousins of former President George W. Bush.
