  •  Can I choose some wealthier ones? (1+ / 0-)

    It would help. Though of course I wouldn't be me if I had different ancestors. Thwarted.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      You probably do have wealthier ancestors, if you look enough.  For example, it's said that everyone from Europe can claim to be a direct descendant of Charlemagne.  Of if some of your ancestors are from England, you probably can trace your line back to some royalty there, like William the Conqueror.  That won't affect your wallet in a positive way, of course.
