Before this, historians could only link 22 of the presidents to King John. Professional genealogists had only traced the male family lines, but

BridgeAnne

was able to link all but one of the presidents together using both male and female ancestry.

She’s not in 7th grade anymore, but now she has her own website.

this just in: professional genealogists fundamentally misunderstand parentage, completely and totally ignore women, are schooled by 13yo girl
