Michelle Cassidy As a young person, I find that I take genealogy for granted. This was until I found AncientFaces. Hearing other success stories made me want to discover and share a little more about my own ancestry. During my first search for information on the surname Cassidy, I found that I share lineage with former President Bill Clinton! His mother's maiden name was Virginia Dell Cassidy.

President Clinton, whose father died before he was born, lived with his maternal grandparents for several years as a child while his mother attended nursing school. President Clinton credits his grandfather, James Eldridge Cassidy, with instilling in him a love for learning and teaching him to read by age four.

Just an interesting tidbit I wanted to share. :)
