Humphrey Bogart had a go-kart
He kept it on his lawn
He went outside for a ride
And discovered it was gone

Wow, Bogart had a lot of famous distant family members! He came from a very upper class background. You don't get a name like Humphrey if you're brought up in Hell's Kitchen.........

I don't buy it. That's gotta be one flawed datasource. I went to the main page and started clicking around ... everyone has an equally impressive list. There's no way.

Really?

What actual justification do you have for saying that?

I could see someone being skeptical if it just listed names, but the detail of the connection is listed (7th great-grandfather, 5th cousin 2x removed, etc.).

One of my relatives who has since passed away had our lineage book done over 50 years ago and, I've had a copy for over half of that time. The gap (age wise) increased over the generations, but my great-grandfather (who was a bit over 50 years older than the Queen) was a 14th cousin of the current Queen Elizabeth. I've followed various links online over the years that have built upon that information. When I looked at the Humphrey Bogart list, I saw probably 20 people off of the top of my head that I know I am related to and who are likely distantly related to each other.

It's not as though it's some sort of ultra exclusive club. For instance, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants estimates that there are ten million Mayflower Descendants in the United States. That's one out of every thirty-three or so people in the population, and a much higher fraction of those with European descent.

Anyone can pick names from the list the OP uncovered for Humphrey Bogart (or pick someone else), type them into a search engine, and see pieces that have already been written about the inter-relatedness of various well known people. Just for the heck of it (just now) I typed in five people from that list (that I know I'm distantly related to) into a search engine....John Kerry, Barack Obama, George W Bush, Princess Diana, and Brooke Shields...and got a number of interesting hits. I was reminded that Bush 43 and former VP Cheney are distantly related.

^^^^^ An expressed hunch/feeling, not information that would disprove the details from the site the OP linked to (a site that I was unaware of until the OP pointed it out).
