July 8 - Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

July 8 – Actor Kevin Bacon’s tendency to pop up in nearly every Hollywood movie inspired the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Apply this tactic to your research. Try to connect yourself to relatives in as few links as possible.

It’s amazing how small the world really is. I have intertwined my father’s lineage to my mother’s lineage through collateral lines. I have found multiple people from another family keep marrying into my family. Sometimes these family lines have someone who has done research and I find out a lot about my family through their research. I like to thank everyone whose research involves more than just their direct ancestors.
