30 Celebs That Are Surprisingly Related

There are many resources available for us to browse genealogy records and piece together your family history. Most of us aren't related to someone famous, but that isn't always the case. 

Countless Hollywood stars have traded their real names for stage names. For example, the name Reginald Kenneth Dwight may not ring a bell, but the name Elton John will. Celebrities will also change their last names in favor of their spouse or a parent. Angelina Jolie was born Angelina Jolie Voight but legally dropped her last name to spite her father.

With all the stage names being used, it can be difficult for stars to pinpoint their ancestors. However, genealogists have found connections that may surprise you!
