Much of the first article seems to be from a book by David Icke. Keep a salt cellar handy. ;D
I spotted several careless bits in the exposition.
I'm impressed by the effort the girl in the second article put in.
It looks like Sandra has found answers to the question by googling, as Ruskie suggested.
 According to WikiTree I seemed to be 48 degrees removed from Queen Elizabeth the Second. It didn't take long to find the mistake - 2 men with the same uncommon name, living at the same time in a small town.

It depends why you are asking the question.

As suggested, you will probably find a lot online about the parentage of all who held office.

I havenít looked, but many are likely to have ďtreesĒ online, but like any other tree you would need to double check them all to ensure they are accurate. A lot of people like to connect their lineage to royalty so you might find some tenuous connections and wrong assumptions on some/many/all of them.

If there is a specific reason you are interested in a specific person, maybe you could concentrate your search on them, and just follow the usual pattern of research - same as you would for anyone.
To find the full parentage of all the US presidents through your own research I think would be a bit of a task, but if you are up to the challenge, good luck.

Maidenstone thanks,I have always got mixed up,with William and Mary.
How tenuous are the links  though, But I do think The Queen has done a marvellous job.
I think a lot of her characteristics come from her mother though.
Hers was a close loving family,which George VIís was not.

Viktoria.
