Kudrow Details Degeneres Family Tree Links To Madonna

Actress LISA KUDROW put her family tree expertise to good use during a recent appearance on comedienne ELLEN DEGENERES' U.S. talk show - by researching the host's ties to MADONNA.
DeGeneres recently discovered that she and the Material Girl are distant cousins but was too busy to delve into her ancestry - so Kudrow, the brains behind hit U.S. roots show Who Do You Think You Are?, did the work for her.
Appearing on DeGeneres' daytime show on Tuesday (20Apr10), the former Friends star revealed, "You're 11th cousins (with Madonna). What you share is your 10th great grandfather, his name was Martin Aucoin, from France... He had two daughters, Jean... That's your side. And another daughter, Michelle, and that gave rise to Madonna's side, and they moved to Canada.
"Then your fifth great grandfather... he's the one who moved the family to Louisiana in the late 1700s."
A stunned DeGeneres said, "That's pretty far back, that's pretty amazing."
