Lineage Chart of Eddie Rickenbacher

"Are you related to Eddie Rickenbacker?" is a question often heard by every Rickenbacker. The correct answer for Orangeburg Rickenbackers is, "Yes, distantly.". In the chart below you can see that Eddie Rickenbacker was my half eighth cousin once removed. That's quite a mouthful so distantly related is probably always the best answer. Although the chart was made specifically for me, you can easily figure out your own relationship to Eddie if one of your ancestors is the same as mine. For details on how to calculate cousin relationships, see the Cousins Table.
