But today, on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), guest Lisa Kudrow arrived to give DeGeneres even more unexpected details.

Kudrow has appeared on 'Who Do You Think You Are?' -- the reality show that traces the ancestry of popular celebrities. So Kudrow is pretty experienced with delving into the whole family tree thing. Here's the information that she has to share: DeGeneres and Madonna are 11th cousins, linked by a common ancestor who lived hundreds of years ago.

Yes, her family lived in Louisiana before it was even part of America. "So, we owned Louisiana?" DeGeneres asks. "They took [the state] away from my family," she adds.
