I have listed below notable individuals who are closely related to April or to me. For the purposes of this page, those designations mean:
    • each individual must be the primary (title) subject of a Wikipedia article;
    • each individual must be connected to April or to me by no more than six genealogical links, each being of one of three types: parent-child, sibling, or spouse. (Obviously, a connection to me via n links would thus also be a connection to April via n+1 links, and vice versa, so of course I have in each instance chosen the closer of the two connections to follow in detail.)

The links are to Wikipedia articles on the notable relatives.   denotes a consanguineous ("blood") relation.
