Dr. Oz: Tracking Family History

Dr. Oz talked to a man named AJ Jacobs, who claims we’re all related. It all started when he received an email from a man who said AJ was an 8th cousin of his wife. He also told him that he had a family tree with 80,000 people on it.

So AJ started researching his family tree and searched census records and obituaries online and at libraries. Whenever he found a new family member, he was able to merge his family tree with that person’s. He was able to connect his family tree to millions of people.
