Its been puzzling me for years. Where did they all come from. Whenever I go out canvassing in Montgomeryshire, I seem to be related to so many people who answer the doors that I knock on. And further afield too. Chair of Cymdeithas yr Iaith. Guto Bebb - distantly. Lovely wife of David Jones, MP for Clwyd West. And many more.
And then I read in today's Telegraph that Russian and Polish scientists have proved that Gengis Khan made so many sexual conquests in his life that he has 16 million Asian descendants - which is more than five times the population of Wales. And I thought I had a lot of relations. Its fairly obvious to me now that I must have had an ancestor with the same tendencies as the old Mongolian warlord. Now that's an interesting name to consider when our first grandchild arrives later this year.
