Connected to Women in History

In Celebration of Women’s History Month, I am proud to say that I am related to Clarissa Harlowe Barton (1821-1912), the Founder of the American Red Cross.

We appear to be separated by 20 degrees, perhaps 7th cousins, 5 times removed.

This connection was identified using WikiTree. When on a WikiTree category page, if a “My Connections” button appears in the upper right, clicking the button will lead to a page of personalized connections. The names fall into two categories: Ancestors and Cousins (blood) and Connections (through marriage). You do also need to have enough of your family’s details entered to connect to the shared tree.

When viewing the Women’s History category, I clicked the “My Connections” button to discover the connection to Barton.
