You and Alexander Hamilton are descendants of a man who lived in northern Europe around 5,000 years ago.
I-DF29 common ancestor
5,000 years ago
Early in the morning on July 11, 1804, Aaron Burr (then Vice President of the United States) and Alexander Hamilton (founder of the U.S. Treasury) dueled on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. This marked the culmination of a bitter personal and political rivalry between the two men. Alexander Hamilton died as a result of the duel, but his intellectual legacy survives in the founding documents of the nation he helped build.
A piece of his genetic legacy survives as well: in the 21st century, genealogists documented the paternal haplogroups of dozens of Hamilton’s living descendants and concluded that the Founding Father’s paternal haplogroup was a branch of I-DF29.

KING HENRY VIII May also be my Grandfather x 13
Assuming that the story of Henry VIII had an affair with Agnes Beaupine BLEWETT the wife of William Thomas EDWARDS and that the result was the birth of LORD Richard Thomas EDWARDS who is my Great Grand father X 13. Henry's tree seems to be documented to go back to before Christ. It for sure goes to William the Conqueror who was born in 1024. From there it seems to have many branchs through different conutries like France, Palastien, Germany, Belgum, Prussia, Italy and who knows where else. I am pursuing this just because I find it interesting and I enjoy learning this stuff history in general. I am posting link to familysearch.org which is the site where this info is located. Much of it may not be true hard to besure ofcorse. There is atleast 3 families that go back to 200 AD and one that goes back to BC. Don't really believe but I guess it is possible.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:9415-746 this link goes back via France to befoe Christ with all kinds of Kings amd Queens from all over. ( don't believe this so much as the years go on I am sure this will tighten up)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:33GM-T76 this link showes to William "the Conquerer" /Plantagenet/ this I assume is true.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:3N2D-MY7 this follows the EDWARDS family
