Angelina Jolie, a cousin of Ryan Gosling, Hillary Clinton, Madonna, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber, Jack Kerouac, Camilla Parker-Bowles... has discovered that Angelina Jolie has many family ties with other celebrities in the film industry (Ryan Gosling, Xavier Dolan), politics (Hillary Clinton, Justin Trudeau), and music (Madonna, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette). All those celebrities have in common French-Canadian pioneers, and in particular Percheron pioneers.

For instance, the Percheron pioneer Zacharie Cloutier, an ancestor of most of the celebrities mentioned before, who was born in Mortagne-au-Perche.

As strange as it may seem, there is nothing exceptional about those family ties. As the Percheron pioneers were among the very first French emigrants to settle in New France, most of North Americans with French-Canadian ancestry have Percheron blood and are more or less related.
