if I take an ancestry test and it says I am related to a rich person, am I entitled to a portion of that money?

    No. Don't be so foolish.

    No. What makes you think you should be? You would ONLY be 'entitled' IF that person named you in their will.

    Living or dead ?

    And how closely related are you ?

    If you are a child or  grandchild you might have some entitlement.

    Nope, you are not entitled to anything of theirs

    Unless both you and that rich person have given the DNA-company express permission to notify relatives, it will not say that.

    Depending on jurisdiction, inheritances go to the spouse and/or the legal children of the deceased - not to his second cousin once removed

    Nope.  No more than you are entitled to your parents' money.  Nice try Snowflake.

    No. Even if you are the child of that person, you are not automatically entitled to anything. For example, Aaron Spelling the producer of the Love Boat and other hit TV series, did not leave anything to his daughter Tori Spelling.

      He left her $100,000, but he was worth millions.

    Generally, no. 

    If you're the son or daughter of someone who's wealthy, you can sue your biological parent and might get compensation for your impoverished childhood.

    Ancestry DNA tests are for entertainment, they don't tell you who you are related to, rich or poor

    The ONLY money you are entitled to is your own money you earn from working
