I've seen quite a bit of times in my life where I've been related to someone and didn't even know it. Probably because we didn't have the same last name, so it can be hard to keep everyone straight.So I decided to look up and see just who it is we're keeping up with, and I'll tell ya, it's not the Cramers or the Morelands.
