I'd love to meet Shakespeare. It fascinates me that his plays are still loved and enjoyed all these hundreds of years later, and (as a writer myself) I'd love to learn more about how he worked.

Famous: Laura Ingall's-Wilder

Family member: My dad. He passed when I was four years old and I barely remember him. I would love to hear the sound of his voice one more time. I don't remember it at all.

Judy Garland
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Anne Frank

All different women yet I'm very fascinated by who they were and why they are still iconic today.

famous: benjamin franklin. he seems to have been quite the character.

non-famous: my paternal grandmother. she died when i was about 3-4 months old, and everyone who knew her says she was the sweetest, kindest soul they've ever met.

I'd like to go back a few generations and meet a great-great grandparent.

As far as famous people go, I think Benjamin Franklin would be fascinating to meet.

I'm very surprised more people on a DISNEY forum haven't said whom I think would be the obvious choice...Walt Disney!

I'd also pick Teddy Roosevelt and then non-famous, my ancestors are from Scotland and there is even a family castle, I'd pick them.

Hmmm. . .

Jesus Christ would be a first choice.

If we get a second, it would be John Kennedy--I have been fascinated since I was a child with the entire family. Then again, I might find the reality of him/them a lot less intriguing than my fantasy.

So yeah, I guess I will stick with my first choice.

My biological mother.
I never got a chance to meet her as she passed away when I was 15, and I didn't start searching for my biological families until I was in my late 20s.

Marie Antoinette....because if Kristen Dunst portrayed her with any accuracy in that movie, she would be the famous person I would like to meet!
