Those are fun to remember....Maybe I'll cut and paste to my email and send mine....I wasn't sure about ancestor, but thought like you do - and read this on dictionary.com
"A person from whom one is descended, especially if more remote than a grandparent; a forebear." I think it's a pretty loose definition.
