Inspired by Nathalie Vialaneix, I also built my academic genealogy tree using the data gathered by the Mathematics Genealogy Project. The resulting tree is below. This was done in R based on her code, with some tweaks. The code is available on Github with instructions on how to replicate.

Luckily, one of my supervisor’s supervisor has a very well documented genealogy that extends through some of the biggest names of European science all the way to 11th century Persian scholars. We can spot several names of probability distributions as well as theorems, integrals, etc.
