delete this:

Also Jackie Kennedy and the prominent French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant are 6th cousins. Jackie’s paternal 5th great-grandparents, Jean Trintignant and Thérèse Paulin, are also Jean-Louis paternal 5th great-grandparents

This would make John and Roman Kolinka 7th cousins, once removed


cdonorab April 27, 2015 at 3:25 pm

Correction Jacqueline Kennedy had Dutch ancestry as well. The first person I found born in Holland was Jan johannes peek who was born in Holland in 1615.

follers April 27, 2015 at 4:02 pm

Sorry, what line was that through?

cdonorab April 27, 2015 at 4:16 pm

It’s threw Jackies father’s grandmother Caroline Ewing. Johannes was her third great grandfather threw the Pratt family.

Sorry, which tree are you looking at? I’m trying to find it.

Was Jackie actually descended from John van Salee?

cdonorab April 27, 2015 at 5:06 pm

Looks like she very well could be. I didn’t see any one with that last name on the trees I looked at but found an article that said that she and Humphrey Bogart were.both descendants of the family.

follers April 27, 2015 at 6:15 pm

But which tree are you looking at?

cdonorab April 27, 2015 at 6:39 pm

The way that they are related to Jan johannes peek is

Black jack

Im tired of everyone insisting that every white person on this sight are part black. Even if he does its much too small to affect his features. Whatever makes black people feel better about themselves i guess.

ashash December 7, 2013 at 10:59 am

I thought Jackie Kennedy was black?

midori29 February 9, 2015 at 1:41 pm

Jackie Kennedy was part black, many articles confirm this including this one. So John F. Kennedy was part black too.

follers February 9, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Which ancestor of Jackie Kennedy was black?

John van Salee is the one cited. Even assuming that van Salee was black (which is disputed), how was he connected to Jackie? He isn’t actually an ancestor of hers.

midori29 February 10, 2015 at 10:37 am

@Follers black people can recognize other black people no matter how distant that admixture is, I think his hair texture is super thick and coarse for a white person. Whites tend to have stringy hair. There is something that comes out.

andrew February 10, 2015 at 3:13 pm

stop trolling, please.

andrew March 30, 2013 at 4:23 pm

interesting fiction..if this man was half dutch/half moroccan how did he become a black man? Ridiculous

midori29 February 9, 2015 at 1:42 pm

@Andrew, many Morroccans are part subsaharan black African

andrew February 9, 2015 at 1:52 pm

but they’re far from being “black”.

midori29 February 10, 2015 at 10:35 am

@Andrew, I have met some Morracans who consider themsleves black, I really have

andrew February 10, 2015 at 3:10 pm

how many Moroccans are there in US or Latin America?

levangelista36 June 18, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Ethnic, you should put possibly Dutch and African. Your source says this,

“One source claims the legend of ancestral descent of the Bouviers to include a later descendant of the Van Salees family, Dutch/African merchants that settled in New Amsterdam in the 17th century.”

They do not know if this is true and do not cite this as fact.

“rish, English, French, Scottish; Jacqueline Kennedy was half-Irish, her mother being the granddaughter of four immigrants from County Cork, who came to New York during the 1840’s potato famine. Jacqueline Kennedy’s paternal grandmother Maude Sergeant was the daughter of an immigrant from Kent, England. Despite her maiden name, Jacqueline Kennedy’s French ancestry was descent from one great-grandfather, making her only one-eight French. The first Bouvier to settle in America was carpenter Michel Bouvier, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1815 from Point Saint-Esprit in the Provence region.”

The only thing they are sure of is that his mother, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, was 3/4th Irish and had French, English, and Scottish ancestry.

Do people even bother to read the sources which it is attained from?

It does not matter if he does or does not have African ancestry. The Kennedy family were not racists. Since this is supposedly Jackie’s great-great-great grandfather, that means she was a 1/32nd and JFK Jr. was 1/64th.

Nothing to fuss about.

Alice October 25, 2012 at 7:48 am

I don’t know why people have marked your comment down. I do think that people’s ancestries should be better verified. There are a lot of people on here listed a certain ancestry with no actual verification.

ana March 23, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Guess what even if Johnny Depp , John jr looks white they are still part African, is there like it or not and you know what else they have African relatives in Africa who are related to their African ancestors , racist people can’t take that away , pure race means 100% if you are not 100% pure then you are mixed enough said

levangelista36 July 6, 2012 at 12:44 am

There is no such thing as a pure race, and I do not believe everyone has to identify as mixed because their bloodline is not as pure as the driven snow.

What you are preaching about is the “one drop rule,” which has been deemed to be racist, nonsensical, and unscientific by both scientists and political figures.

One scientist in a scientific journal even states:

“Nor am I writing this to argue that there are no races. The fact that a poodle may have 1-10% of bulldog blood somewhere does not make him a bulldog.”

And John F. Kennedy Jr. may or may not have a African and Dutch great-great-great-great grandfather. The sources the moderator used specifically state that it is mere speculation and that they have no actual proof Jackie Kennedy was related to Dr. John van Salee De Grasse. They clearly say that all they know is that she was for sure overwhelmingly Irish with a bit of French, Scottish, and English ancestry. One of them also states that they asked Jackie and her sister, Lee Radziwill, about this and that they said it was untrue. However, that source could be lying.

After all, him having African blood is just a rumor.

Alice November 10, 2012 at 5:21 am

If it is a rumour it is not verified so it should be removed.

Drooling February 6, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Wow he has black in him. That is soooooooooo sexy. He sure is dreamy :)

Lisa December 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

VERY well said, Trese

Love and Peace for all.

Trese December 1, 2011 at 10:08 am

WOW people are harsh here. Listen, plain and simply-it is part of his bloodline, all of the above makes you who you are. There is no shame in knowing the truth, and thats why so many people want to research thier heritage and ethnicity more thoroughly because so many unanswered questions.
I just think the easy way to think of this if you have a problem with it is to remember that it is part of your blood, and your heritage. Not something to be ignored or deny, and if you are embarassed by it-dont be. Its just part of the past and future-the mixture of races has been around for so long it doesn’t even matter anymore.
Nearly an entire population of people in this world has some mixed blood in them, and stories of people that lived before them, inside thier blood that is both sad, tragic, beautiful and joyous.

Not something to be critisized about. After all, the age old saying was, “we are all connected”, maybe that is true in more ways than one.

SparkleTime December 1, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Honestly, who cares? Most people are not ashamed of having admixture. It is other people on here who are making a big deal about him having a black ancestor like they do Johnny Depp. Then, they use this knowledge to spout racism against whites. They make comments such as, “Oh, yes, it’s the 1/128th Native or black blood that makes him or her beautiful. They could never be that beautiful if they were only white.” As if such a thing as white, beyond it’s determinism as a social construct, even exists. People would not be annoyed if it weren’t for the blatant racism against whites that this sites promotes. But this site in general is perverse. “Mixed” kids come here to promote supremacy. They even go as far as using the “one drop rule” on every celebrity so they can “claim” them and deny that they are predominantly socially and racially white/Caucasian.

Click on any celebrities’ page and you’ll see these ignorant folks stretching that 1/128th Native or black. It’s not a problem to acknowledge that they have a mixed ethnic background like everyone else, especially Americans. It’s not a problem to look fully into their heritage, even if it does go back hundreds and hundreds of years. But to start denying their white, using “one drop rules,” which is a disgusting racist ideal, and spouting racism towards whites for the sake of promoting some sort of racial supremacy is not okay. It’s disgusting and perverse, and that’s all this site does.

Say WHAT? March 26, 2012 at 8:42 am

I’m black and I agree with what SparkleTime is saying.

Alice December 31, 2011 at 9:27 am

He was a beautiful looking man. All his backgrounds contributed to what he was. Great comment Trese.

SparkleTime January 9, 2012 at 5:19 pm

“Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis has distant African American ancestry named Dr. John van Salee De Grasse who was born in 1825.”

Why are people making a big deal out of this? If it is that distant in his mother, it is even more distant in him. Some of you are full of such shit. “Ooooh. I can see it in him. Ooooh. He’s a beautiful mixed man. Ooooh. It makes him beautiful.” Dude, he is 1/32nd black at BEST and probably didn’t even know he had an ancestor who was African. It is a part of his heritage, yes, and who he is, but I fail to realize why some of you are so fixated on such a SMALL part of his heritage? It is borderline creepy and perverse.

You all do the same with Johnny Depp, who has a black great grandmother from NINE generations ago who was born in 1612. He is HARDLY black. He has NEVER said he was part black and anyone who considers him as such is looney tunes.

Don’t care if I get thumbed down, but every time some white celebrity has a distant African ancestor, people start fixating on it like mad. It’s ridiculous.

Alice January 10, 2012 at 2:34 am

He is mostly of Irish descent. Even Jackie had quite a lot of Irish ancestry.

Alice January 10, 2012 at 4:24 am

He is actually 3/4 Irish descent. Jacqueline’s mother was of full Irish descent.

Robert February 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

He (Dr. John van Salee De Grasse ) was born just a little over a century before her. What would that be, like her G, GG, or GGG grandfather? Hardly what I’d call distant.

Then I see the photo…

czj November 20, 2011 at 7:07 pm

Denial is not a virtue. To me, I can clearly see african- american in JFK, Jr. And Jackie-O just like I believe Elvis has some in him. To all the racists idiots you have no clue of all that’s in your bloodline so think about that before you start to spew your racist garbage

Liam O'Connel February 6, 2012 at 10:45 pm

haha come on dude/dudette, yes he is of african ancestry but to say you can see it in him is pure rubbish, he looks 100% european, as is expected since his black ancestry is so far back. Yes alot of white americans are of african ancestry from within the last 300-400 years but to call them black is silly, that would be even worse than calling chris rock white just because he has distant white ancestors..if you werent told that he had african ancestry you never could have told by looking at him…heck just look at wentworth miller, if you’re not told that his father is half black half white everybody would have just thought wentworth was an average white dude

John West August 15, 2011 at 9:34 pm

One of my sorrows as relates to history and ethnicity is that the aristocrat Gore Vidal, in all his writing, did not share what I suspect are deep insights into the bloodlines of colonial Americans. He didn’t even bother to tackle the Hemings/Jefferson debate, which only his prudent pen could do. And I’m not entirely convinced, either, that Alexander Hamilton himself isn’t in part of mixed European and African ancestry, denials by prominent historians to the contrary, Yale’s Ron Chernow among them. We’ll tackle the closeted bloodlines of prominent South Africans of Dutch descent later. It has often been said, especially during the 80s, that a publication on the matter reads like the who’s who of South Africa. At least that’s why they say.

ana August 2, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Once again whites don’t believe he was part African wow .Whites are ashame of thei African blood the ones who are mixed it and knows about others were told their ancestor was Native American or Jewish instead of black good lord.

From Rhianna, to Beyonce white people want us as long as we have money or doing something right in the world they have to find white blood and try to claim us if they could. SO TAKE YOUR LAME ASS ON!

Youre comment is whats pathetic! do your history first and pick better examples next time! Beyonce has said herself that her mother is Creole which is a mix of mostly Native American, African and European, and in her case French. Rihanna is 1/4 white. her dad is half. look it up or just look at him its not that hard to figure out.

WTF February 1, 2011 at 2:22 am

Say WHAT? February 19, 2011 at 7:15 am

It sounds like it’s white people who have low self-esteem if they get upset if someone suggests they are anything but white. If you were that comfortable in your own skin coughNate42Bcough, you wouldn’t make such rude comments whenever the subject was bought up.

Just for the record, JFK didn’t have the black heritage as far as I know. It was Jackie who did. I have the same ancestry. Anthony Van Salee (as noted in our family tree) did indeed descend from a Dutch father, turned Pirate and Muslim. Jan Jansen Van Haarlem left his Dutch wife and married (legally under Muslim law) a second wife. She was Moorish (black). Therefore Anthony was mulatto. If you were to look at me (400 years later) you would not be able to tell that I have any black blood in me at all. It just goes to show, nobody knows what they will find in their family history — unless you research it.

reader April 9, 2011 at 12:13 pm

for your information, moorish refers to people of north africa.
An people of North Africa are not blacks.
So in case it is true that he had one Moorish ancestor, this ancestor was not black

411 April 9, 2011 at 8:10 pm


Funny you call yourself reader,but it’s obvious your not one.Your looking at north africans of today,and not at the time in question.They majority of the moors of that time were black people.Change your username to hearsay,that’s better for you.This way you can say whatever.

411 April 9, 2011 at 8:12 pm

my mistake,(the majority)

mizzany May 7, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Of course moors were black so north africans were black before being mixed with arabs. Cleopatra was mixed race in most pictures of her u can see she had african’s features. So yeah north africans were black. I’ve an algerian friend who self identifies black so does his family in fact i know many algerians and a few Moroccans i went to school with in france who self identify black

Chad MacGregor November 8, 2010 at 11:56 am

Not really – just stating a fact.

Chad MacGregor November 8, 2010 at 10:24 am

I’m a Scottish nationalist who dislikes the English and have never referred to myself as British – Scottish through and through.

The Scots hate the English more than the Irish, and the only difference between the Scots and Irish with regard to their hatred of the English, is that the Scots managed to defeat the English and the Irish couldn’t.

The way I look at it – the people of Northern Ireland chose to remain within the United Kingdom through a democratic referendum. The people of Northern Ireland decided to not go independent with Ireland and that was their choice.

I fully understand the Irish anger towards this move however, bombing innocent men, women and children because they were Protestant and not Catholic is disgusting and cowardly – this sums up the Irish throughout history.

Please name me what good the Irish have done for the world? You migrated to the, which for the record you were not wanted, in millions starving and with nothing to offer, formed criminal gangs and drank yourselves to death. Now Ireland is one of the poorest nations in Europe and the American-Irish are as dumb as they come!

Unlike us Scots, who invented the TV, telephone, radar systems, penecillin, bicycle, steam engine, whisky, golf and populated America with over 40 million intelligent minds!

LOL. November 8, 2010 at 11:24 am

Hey, Chad.

No one gives a flying fuck about what Scotland’s done.

You just don’t generalize someone like that, purely because of their heritage.

Just because a person is Scottish, does not make them a God. Likewise, just because a person is Irish, does not make them useless and scum.

No one wants to read your crap. You’re embarrassing yourself.

KimJ January 16, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Nice to see the hatred of the Irish is alive and well… (note the sarcasm). I for one am both Irish and Scottish as well as going back to King James II of Scotland. I am also Danish (hello Vikings!) Also Northern Ireland did not become part of Great Britain because the people there were mostly Scottish that immigrated to Ireland. :)

Many people on this planet can say that they have at least some Irish in them. Also, last I checked it is Scotland that is now under the British crown and the Irish never gave in. So, despite the fact that the Scots won some wars with England over the centuries, it is the Irish that are still not under the English crown. :)

KimJ January 16, 2011 at 2:05 pm

Sorry, “Also Northern Ireland did not become part of Great Britain because the people there were mostly Scottish that immigrated to Ireland.” was meant to be that Northern Ireland DID become apart of GB because the population was made up of mostly Scots.

A. January 29, 2011 at 8:05 pm

Why I love the Irish so much the heart of lions!

I am Hispanic American here for centuries in
the U.S. both sides.

To retain ones ethnic identity is not a crime it is something to be proud

Love you KIMJ!

Chad MacGregor November 7, 2010 at 11:54 am

The IRA are European terrorists who are responsible for the death of hundreds of people from Northern Ireland and British troops from throughout the Commonwealth.

Typical idiotic Irish-American who’s lacking a brain cell and a fair education. I bet you probably think kilts are bagpipes are Irish, don’t you?!

IRA are religious hating scum.

LOL November 7, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Does the Queen’s ass taste nice Chad? What business do the British have being in the north of Ireland? The IRA were right.

Franco November 8, 2010 at 7:10 am

The Irish have the Uilleann Pipes and while the Scottish are known for the kilt, some Irish wear them too on occasions.

Chad MacGregor November 6, 2010 at 3:33 pm

JFK was mainly of Irish herritage and supported the IRA during their conflicts with the British back in the 1970’s.

He funded the IRA who are well known European terrorists!

Sir Rupert November 6, 2010 at 5:49 pm

He was 100% right to support the Irish against the British. Well done JFK.

Raul November 6, 2010 at 6:43 pm

True Rupert. The British had absolutely no business being in Ireland.

He looks like my grandpa when he was young. Lol.

MiMi August 26, 2010 at 8:25 am

So JFK is Irish and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is French, English, Scottish, Dutch and African. Interesting mix.

Dr. John van Salee De Grasse sounds Dutch, which means he is likely to have been a white South African.

See how in the past,whenever white people would try and hide their black lineage,they would say they were Jewish.Now just think how many mixed blooded got away with move,who’s descendants are walking around today without a clue

Fuzzybear, Im sure there are a lot of “white” people out there that have mixed heritages and not know it.
This is one site that can hopefully find out more profiles like this.

However, I’ll take back my point and presume he had African in him somewhere but with Dutch descent too.

Well in that article it says

Dr. John van Salee De Grasse, was the first of his race to be formally educated as a doctor.

and his father had an illegitimate child with a Black woman. So i assume he has Dutch and Black heritage.
