On my father's side, we've always been told that we are "related to" Ralph Waldo Emerson (in fact, my dad's middle name is Emerson because of that). And on my mother's side, we've always been told that we are "related to" Meriwether Lewis (of Lewis & Clark fame). In both cases, I don't know how we're related. I've tried to figure out if there's a way for me discover the connection between Emmerson and my tree, or Lewis and my tree, and I haven't had any success. Does anyone know how to do this (assuming it's even possible)?
