In YD 62-05-18, Daisy calls Donna Duck "sister". It's not in a familial way, but I thought I would mention it anyways.
I know Don Rosa suggested the that two of them might be siblings, but I've never bought that. They introduce themselves to each other in YD 51-08-07, so they clearly don't know each other before that.
Interesting, though, yes, it's not necessarily indicative of a familial relationship between the two. I feel it is worthy to point out that, despite not meeting until adulthood, they could still be siblings. Donna could be the child of Daisy's father from some sort of affair or earlier marriage. Maybe Donna (or Daisy) was put up for adoption at birth. I'm not saying either of these scenarios are likely or have a lot of support for them, but if someone wants to hold to both Rosa's suggestion and Taliaferro's canon (not that he intended for there to be any sort of canon), there are ways to make it work.

Do we have a link to the exact comment Rosa made on the matter? Given Donna's universally acknowledged Latina background, and Daisy's apparent lack of the same, they would have to be half-sisters. Their having the same father, however, would at least make me feel better about them both having the same last name without needing to add yet another unrelated family named Duck (in addition to Donald's, Daisy's, Belle's and Dickie's). However, reading In the Taliaferro strip cited above, Daisy's reference to Donna as "sister" is clearly not meant to signify a sibling relationship (nor is it friendly, either).
I'm once again going to go on a non-genealogical tangent in this thread.
In ZD 59-10-18, Daisy mentions that she and Donald used to go to school together. This bothered me, since YD 40-11-04 (made by the same people) seemed to imply that Donald and Daisy first met when Daisy moved into Donald's neighborhood. That strip obviously takes place after both of them are out of school, since HDL are already living with Donald.
I know other stories have shown them together in school, and even kindergarten I believe, but it bothers me when a writer contradicts himself.
I just read YD 62-07-19, in which Donald has a flashback to his and Daisy's first meeting. They both seem to be around 5 years old or something like that. Needless to say, I'm not a fan of it.
In YD 62-08-17, Scrooge visits a fortune teller, who predicts that he will marry a beautiful girl and have four children. She does not, however, mention that this girl would have to be half his age, but whatever I guess.
Also, this is just a fortune teller, so I guess this post is just a waste of everybody's time.
(The kids could of course be Huey, Dewey and Louie... and maybe Webby? And who knows - maybe a story down the road will have Scrooge marry either Goldie or Brigitta? Bah, I'm trying to cover for a fortune teller - what has my life come to?!)
