Natalie Wood’s Pallbearers

The thirtieth anniversary of the death of Hollywood icon Natalie Wood has generated plently of media attention. One story I saw mentioned her pallbearers.

So I checked in the Family Forest® and discovered that in addition to Natalie Wood, the Family Forest® National Treasure has six of the seven of her Pallbearers, according to the list at IMDb.

This should certainly sound like a ho-hum “So what?” claim, until one becomes aware of the primary guideline that has been steering the growth of the Family Forest® since before the end of the last century.

No one gets into the Family Forest® unless they are linked by birth or marriage, or occassionally adoption, to someone who is already in the Family Forest®.

Can you imagine a single interconnected web of family ties that is so extensive that it includes Natalie Wood, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier, David Niven, and Elia Kazan? (As well as all U.S. Presidents, Vice Presidents, and their wives, Pearl Harbor survivors, Titanic passengers, Alamo heros, Boston Tea Party “Indians,” all of the people and celebrities discussed in Family Forest® blogs, plus many others.)

That’s the Family Forest®, and among other edutainment objectives, the Family Forest® Project is Networking Family History with Hollywood™.
