I stumbled across this page today. WARGS stands for William Addams Reitwiesner Genealogical
ervices. The most complete part of the site covers ancestries of US political figures. It's pretty interesting if you're into genealogy. Howard Dean is distantly related to Elvis Presley. Laura Bush is distantly related to Deadball-era baseball player Sammy Strang. The ubiquitous Kevin Bacon* shows up a couple of times. Check it out for yourself. Baseball fans may dig this detailed genealogy of Bret Boone.

* Simon Singh, a science non-fiction writer who I enjoy, was written about Erdos-Bacon Numbers, which combine Bacon numbers with Erdos numbers. I may work on Morgan-Bacon numbers or Blanda-Bacon Numbers. For instance, Larry Bird's Blanda-Bacon number is 8 (Blanda #6 + Bacon #2) and his Morgan-Bacon number is 5 (Morgan #3 + Bacon #2). But that's a project for another day.
