US Presidential superquiz

-- - Do you really know your US presidents? - --
Notes on ancestry: I usually dug up to early 1600s or 1500s with the family line, where available/necessary. UK generally divided by countries under the UK.
Notes on profession: Generally speaking the profession is marked as what the president practiced at some point. Where no proper long term profession is found, "none" is marked as the profession. President, politician etc. are not counted as professions because that would apply to all.
Father & Mother = first name
Ancestry = most prominent or latest one(s), not the whole family tree
President/politician does not count as a profession in this quiz, for obvious reasons

Other notes of interest... Obama also has French, German and Dutch blood in him and he has siblings with Asian blood. Two of the presidents do not have higher learning. Trump's father's second name appears to be Christ. There are scary many relatives in the presidents and if you check in their bloodlines, many same names pop up a few generations back. It's almost a family office of cousins and more direct relations. Not a single one American has ever been selected a president, if you consider the Native American people and their lineage.
