It looks like Madonna can add another famous person to her family.Ancestry.com says Madonna is related to talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres. The two are apparently 11th cousins.

The Web site says they're related to a common 10th great-grandfather. He was a Frenchman named Martin Aucoin.

His daughters left France to settle in Nova Scotia, where both Madonna and DeGeneres' families lived for generations.
