Is the President Related to Warren Buffett?


The answer’s yes if you believe a new study of President Obama’s family tree done by The link goes back to Mareen Duvall, who emigrated from France to Maryland to work as an indentured servant in the 1650s. That makes Obama and Buffett seventh cousins, three times removed and entitles the president at least a billion in inheritance. [The Caucus/NYT]
