H. G. (Herbert George) Wells Linda Catherine Wallace
Over the past many years I put together a family history book and wrote that my wife was related to the acclaimed writer H. G. Wells. I am an amateur genealogist and have written a book but I must admit to being a bit of a luddite when it comes to understanding genealogy charts with ease. And although I got the charts right, technically, it's only today that I can describe the connection between she and he. I have now determined and can put into words that Linda's great-great-grandmother, Edith Jane Wells was a first cousin of the renowned H. G. Wells. They both had the same grandfather: William Nye Wells. So my wife Linda is a first cousin, five times removed, of H.G. Wells ... for what it's worth.
