Dear Curtis, I have recently discovered that I am a distant  relative of Marilyn Monroe. My Grandmother's side of the family is related to her so, as you could imagine singing runs through my veins. I hoped this information helped a little bit. sincerely, Bug eyed one

I've been hearing a lot on the news about a murder case from 1996 of a Krystal Jean Baker.  They claim that she is the great niece of MM.  I have done much research on this.... a lot of people claim to be related, but I can't find a connection.  MM had a brother with the name Baker, but he died as a child and she has a half-sister.  So how is this girl her niece?

I can answer questions on most of Marilyn`s life, particularly her early years and the late fifties/early sixties. I have read a great deal on the conspiracy theories concerning her death.


I have been a fan of Marilyn Monroe's for over ten years now, and have accumulated a sizeable collection of books and documentaries on her.

I below to three different Marilyn internet groups.

I have degrees in Modern History and English. In the latter subject I studied film theory and completed my exam essay on Marilyn Monroe (movie screen as mirror) gaining a first.
