    I don’t know why this show bothers going back that far. Do you know how many 19 times great grand parents we all have? Half the population are probably related to royalty if you go back far enough.

  3. The Claypooles are descended from English, Scottish, Irish and French royal families. Over 50 + years of research, my father has taken the tree back 172 generations.
