President in family?

gw April 4, 2012

I enjoy your show. I did some research of my roots. My great great grand parents are Luke Milk and Saloma Adams. Milk goes back to John Milk founding father of Salem, Mass. and Adams goes back to Henry Adams and Edith Squire. great great grand parents of president John Adams. I am amazed.
