Thread Name: Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral
Subject: RE: Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral
pedant alert - also history alert!

quote from an article above - All the bones buried in Pentridge yard were exhumed in 2009 and Kelly's skeleton was positively identified in 2011 by scientists after DNA tests against a descendant.

Ned Kelly had no descendants so can't be anyone's ancestor! The descendants mentioned are from his 2 sisters families &/or maybe even cousins families.

Kelly family tree scroll down this family tree to the bolded entry
Edward "Ned" KELLY b(28c Dec 1854 Beveridge, Vic, Aus.) d(11 Nov 1880 Melbourne, Vic. Aus.)
ie. he was not married so he did not have legitimate children, nor is there any mention of a common-law wife or illegitimate children.
