Obama And Warren Buffett Are Cousins (maybe it's time to ask for some economic advice)

Genealogists at ancestry.com announced on Tuesday that Obama and Buffett are related through a 17th century Frenchman named Mareen Duvall. According to the online genealogists, Duvall -- who immigrated to Maryland from France in the 1650s -- is Obama's 9th great grandfather and Buffett's 6th great grandfather. The discovery was made by accident when the same team of genealogists who had researched Obama's family tree went on to investigate details about Buffett's relatives.'
