Thwarted Geneology

So a while back I did a trial on Ancestry.com. The OneWorldTree project told me that I was a 17th great-grandchild of Geoffrey Chaucer. Except there was an odd blank entry.

servalan recently came into knowledge of family she didn't know she had, so she signed up for a trial to see if there was any information for her (there wasn't, so far). But I decided to follow the links that supposedly connected me to Geoffrey Chaucer.

Well, it turns out... I have a 17th great grandmother of Katherine Chaucer. Geoffrey's sister. So Geoffrey Chaucer is (one of) my 17th great grand UNCLEs, not great grand FATHERs. Sigh.
