The big genealogy web sites are getting involved in gene research as well.

Originally, genealogy meant going through old records and producing a
large tree of births marriages and deaths. But when you think that up
to 10% of the breeding was off-piste for a variety of reasons (good
and bad), that invalidates a lot of the family trees. And there are
also mistakes and omissions in the records.

So maybe I am related to Henry VIII after all?
