Getting to Robin Hood via eBay

An old friend asked me to call a friend of his in Atlanta early last week. Something about frustration with his experience at Ancestry.com, and wondering if I could help him. 

Within two hours, I was able to email John a PIN of one of his ancestors in the National Treasure who has a generation-by-generation ancestral pathway to Katharine Hepburn’s character in The Lion in Winter. 

That same character, Eleanor of Aquitaine, is also portrayed in Russell Crowe’s Robin Hood. So John can take his kids to the movies this week to see their own ancestors portrayed larger than life on the silver screen. Cool, huh? 

Maybe we don’t actually make joy, as BMW does, but we certainly enjoy spreading joy. So we’re announcing our Personal Connection Service to Hollywood this week and introducing it via an eBay auction

The Family Forest® Project is, among other objectives, Networking Family History with Hollywood™, and we’re trying to make it as easy as possible for you to connect your children personally to history, and to ignite their interest in life time learning.

    What a great concept for a service this is. You have something so unique – which takes the drudge work out of finding some mighty interesting connections. But, it is not just Hollywood, you connect ordinary people to their forebears who left their mark on world history in so many areas. Once people hear what you are doing, and have done so effectively for some time now, and what a bargain this is, they will be contacting you in droves for your individualized ancestral linking service. Kudos to you for offering this to the public.
