Are all us Presidents related?

If you could trace their ancestry back far enough you could probably find common ancestors for any pair of presidents, so in a way, they are no doubt all related. However, in the usual sense, people are said to be related only if the relationship is known and fairly close, so in this sense, US presidents are not all related. Some, of course, have been closely related to each other.


What US Presidents were Italian?

If you are referring to what US Presidents were born in Italy, then your answer is simple; a US President could not have been born in Italy. If a person was born in a country or region not in American control, then they cannot become a President, since in order to be President, you must be born in a US held area. If you are referring to how many Presidents have Italian heritage in their blood, I believe that the answer is zero. No US President as of right now has had any noticeable Italian lineage.
