Perhaps the Next National Genealogist?

A 7th grader and her 80-year old grandfather are the first to identify that Barack Obama is related to all other United States President's except one.

BridgeAnne d'Avignon, in Watsonville, California, traced Obama and all other U.S. President's, except Martin Van Buren, to John "Lackland" Plantagenet, a king of England, and a signer of the Magna Carta.

The unlikely genealogy researchers spent this past summer designing the first known family tree chart that shows the president's direct relationship to one another. BridgeAnne's grandfather researched the president's genealogy for the past sixty-years.

BridgeAnne hopes to personally present the chart to Obama.
