Writing Life: Cousin James Joyce

My sisters Linda and Wendy both spend a fair amount of time on Geni, and our family genealogy is of great interest to them. They send me the bits that they suspect will be of most interest to me.

According to Wendy, Geni has just found that we are 13th cousins five times removed with noted Ulysses author James Joyce. This seems to me a good thing, something of which to be proud. Linda has said in the past that we are related to some Scottish king named Urk. I won’t be donning a kilt any time soon, but I’d be thrilled to death to think I’d inherited a wisp of James Joyce’s writing brilliance.
