Lion’s Share Commitment to the Library of Congress

Today, to encourage and support valuable programs that closely relate to Family Forest® objectives, the Family Forest® Project is making what should become another very substantial commitment.

From now until the end of 2014, Millisecond Publishing Company, Inc. will be giving to the Library of Congress the lion’s share (meaning more than half) of all gross sales revenues of The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook.

This unique digital resource, quite possibly the largest eBook in existence, chronicles generation-by-generation lines of descent from an ancient French castle directly to a huge number of Americans, including many who are showcased at the Library of Congress.

As you can see at http://loc.gov/philanthropy/#:

The Library of Congress, the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution, is the world’s preeminent reservoir of knowledge, providing unparalleled integrated resources to Congress and the American people. The Library seeks to further human understanding and wisdom by providing access to knowledge through its collections, which bring to bear the world’s knowledge in almost all of the world’s languages and America’s private sector intellectual and cultural creativity in almost all formats.

Millisecond will be equally dividing this donation between four of the library’s key focus areas. They are

1. Acquire rare and unique items

Assist in building the national collection, adding unique and highly sought after materials to the Library’s holdings.

2. Exhibitions and Educational Programs

Support innovative exhibitions, digital outreach, publications and a wide range of educational programming designed to make the Library’s collections more accessible than ever!

3. Preserve and protect collections for future generations

Support key programs and activities focused on the preservation of rare and unique archival materials and collections.

4. Veterans History Project

Every veteran has his or her own war, and each is custodian of unique stories and memories. Support the Library’s efforts to preserve their legacy with the gathering, processing, preservation, and access to riveting oral histories and personal documents collected from veterans from all wars.

According to the recorded history mapped out in The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook at least 26 Presidents and Vice Presidents of the United States are descended from the founder of Briquebec Castle.

Could it really be true, as I believe, that at least one billion living people, including most Americans, are descended from the builder of this medieval castle?

Could it also be true, as I believe, that if you have any European ancestry within the last four centuries, you almost certainly have parts of your own early family heritage chronicled in this digital resource?

Is The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook the largest eBook in existence? If printed, this digital resource would be a “book” that is five feet wide, as large or larger than most sets of encyclopedias.

This digital resource download contains exciting and personally enriching discoveries that could cost you thousands of dollars in time and expenses to find using traditional resources.

Imagine what it might mean to your children and grandchildren if you could show them they really do have family ties to the founding of America and the American Revolution, knights and ancient warriors, nobility and royalty, or even a castle that they can stay in.

Happy New Years America, and a special thank you to the Library of Congress for your efforts to preserve and pass along our inspirational heritage.

Fourth of July Declaration

Today, in honor of all of the Americans who have served and are serving, the Family Forest® Project is making what we hope will become a very substantial commitment.

From now until the 4th of July 2014, we will be giving to the Fisher House at Tripler Hospital the lion’s share (meaning more than half) of all sales revenues of The Family Forest Descendants of Duncan I of Scotland.

There are some engaging and personally enriching stories behind this, beginning with the valuable service of The Fisher House Foundation and the achievements of its super-patriot founder Zachary Fisher, including his purchase of the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier.

Then there’s the multifaceted Family Forest® and its amazingly interconnected web of generation-by-generation family ties that spans continents and thousands of years.

According to the recorded history mapped out in The Family Forest Descendants of Duncan I of Scotland, at least 20 Signers of the Declaration of Independence are descendants of Duncan I, and another six Signers married descendants of Duncan I.

The two most decorated American soldiers in our two World Wars each have parts of their ancestral pathways chronicled back to this ancient warrior in this digital resource.

Could it really be true, as I believe, that at least one billion living people, including most of the people serving in the U. S. Armed Forces today, are descendants of this Shakespeare character?

Could it also be true, as I believe, that if you have any European ancestry within the last four centuries, you almost certainly have parts of your own early family heritage chronicled in this digital resource?

Is The Family Forest Descendants of Duncan I of Scotland the second largest eBook in existence?

If printed, it would be a “book” that is five feet wide, as large or larger than most sets of encyclopedias. Even though it is in Adobe eBook format, doesn’t such a huge digital resource belong in a category other than eBook?

Imagine what it might mean to your children and grandchildren if you could show them they really do have family ties to the founding of America and the American Revolution, knights and ancient warriors, nobility and royalty, or even a character from Shakespeare who is portrayed in Hollywood movies.

Happy 4th of July America, and a special thank you to Vietnam Veteran Leo Sears and the Big Island Film Festival for introducing Family Forest® to The Fisher House.

Theoretical Versus Actual

A very bright anthropology student from Michigan, with a personal interest in mathematics, statistics and probability theory, asked for my opinion on some of his interesting thoughts about where we all came from. Here is my reply.

I wish I had your knowledge of, and skills with, numbers so I could respond more intelligently to your thoughts and questions. Following are some of my thoughts based on what I’ve read, and what I see daily as I visually travel back and forth through the most extremely interconnected web of thousands of years of ancestral history (the Family Forest®), based on recorded history.

I believe that the theoretical estimate that an average person in 1500 has about 1.5 million offspring alive today is too low. Here’s why.

The Family Forest® is based on what actually did happen, according to recorded history, and not on what might happen, theoretically. Here are a few examples of what can happen in just one century.

Martha (Clarke) Willard (b. 1694, d. 1794) was said to have had 12 children, 90 grandchildren, 206 great-grandchildren, and 45 great-great-grandchildren when she died at the age of 100.

Catharine (Andrews) Shattuck (b. 2/16/1753 Ipswich, MA, d. 11/19/1845 Temple, NH) was said to have had 150 living descendants when she died, seven children, 51 grandchildren, 90 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren when she died.

Esek Brown (b. 3/8/1678/9 Newport, RI, d. 12/4/1772 Swansea, MA) was said to have been survived by 11 children, 112 grandchildren, and 129 great-grandchildren.

As is explained in the third-from-the-bottom paragraph at http://www.familyforest.com/captainslog/36.html, from Mayflower Society estimates 1.5 million offspring appears more reasonable from 1600.

In addition, I believed I read that one of the foremost living genealogists, Gary Boyd Roberts, estimated that prominent Colonial ancestor Governor Thomas Dudley may have 10 million descendants.

So couple the three actual one-century examples from above with the 1600 estimates, and it seems that a reasonable estimate from a 1500 person is tens of millions of living descendants.

It would be difficult to factor in the overlap that would need to be subtracted, but certainly the number should be very large.

Considering how many boxes each of us would need to fill in to truly know a substantial part of our deep ancestry (http://familyforest.com/resources/51/ancestors-at-a-glance), it may seem reasonable to assume that going back 400-500 years ago, we most certainly had at least one Japanese or Chinese ancestor.

Visually exploring so many generation-by-generation ancestral pathways zig-zagging geographically over the millennia in the Family Forest®, according to recorded history, leads me to the following opinions.

My odds of having at least one Japanese or Chinese ancestor in the last 500 years is in the range of slim to none. During the last 1,000 years, the odds becomes quite possible. During the last 2,000 years, I believe it is almost certain.

I also believe that the reverse is true about Japanese or Chinese descendants having some European ancestors.

Hopefully this helps. Please stay tuned here for a free Family Forest® give-a-way that will be available in a couple of days. It will help illustrate genetic migration over centuries.
