You're going to need more room for your family tree! DNA researchers say Britons have on average 17,000 living blood relatives

[*]It has been claimed that only around 1,200 relatives are likely to live in the UK
[*]This means that a Wembley Stadium crowd would include around three cousins
[*]But the Scottish typically have even more, with 21,000 cousins and those in the North West of England have 20,000 


Most of us can count our cousins on our fingers.
But if you take a wider look at your family tree, you might find a few thousand more.
The average Briton has 17,000 living blood relatives, DNA researchers have claimed – most of them second, third or even up to eighth cousins.
The majority of them are thought to live across the globe, while only 1,200 are in the UK. It means that a typical Wembley Stadium crowd would include three cousins, analysis from AncestryDNA found.

I have about six pages of possible cousins from fourth to eight, along with requests for my info to check for actual connections. I have found two who are actually cousins but I already knew about them. There are one or two others who are convinced we are family but I can't find a connection with their trees and mine.

Thanks, man! I meant maybe I'm related to somebody on here, but I still really appreciate it.

Vic, I probably don’t say this often enough, but you’ve been a really good friend to me over the years.
I know you meant that and that means a lot to me. To us, actually.

Thank you.

Now you can tell me shut up.

Yeah, it means a lot to me too. Just had to be tough about it, you know, I believe you "lot" call it "blokish," but seriously, it's really touching.
