Notable Kin W to Z

PLEASE NOTE: The truth is that ALL of us are descended from famous historical figures and ALL of us can count numerous famous people among our relatives.  There is nothing special or unique about it.  EVERYONE has an impressive pedigree, as each and every one of us is a survivor at the end of a long evolutionary line.  Most of us, however, have no way of knowing how these people actually are connected, because the information has not been properly handed down from generation to generation.  Hopefully, this database will help others to retrieve the evidence or provide inspiration for further research.
