Family Forest® Family Ties of AMC’s TURN

I am very excitedly looking forward to the return of AMC’s TURN, and almost two decades of strategically growing the Forest Family® has been fueling my excitement.

One of the central characters is someone I wrote about more than a decade ago in a Captain’s Log (a blog before there were blogs).

Attached is a chart showing actual blood relationships (not just some kind of Kevin Bacon type six degrees of separation social connections) between a number of the TURN characters, plus a couple of living people, according to ancestral history already assembled in the Forest Family®.

Warning: it could be paradigm-shifting to think about what you are seeing on this chart. Every person there shares ancestors, according to fully-sourced recorded history, with every other person there.

There are 100 boxes filled in on this chart, and all of these calculations took just 39 minutes and 30 seconds to calculate from the Forest Family® National Treasure II preview.

With just a few minutes more, I could use the Forest Family® National Treasure II preview to calculate similar relationships from all ten of these people to politicians like President Obama or John Kerry or Hillary Clinton, media personalities like Mike Huckabee or Anderson Cooper or Garrison Keillor, business moguls like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, Hollywood icons like Errol Flynn or Katharine Hepburn or Humphrey Bogart, current Hollywood stars like Tom Hanks or Amy Adams or Matt Damon, etc., etc.

Enjoy the return of the TURN series, and please stay tuned for an upcoming Forest Family® blog about the secrecy genes from America’s first spy ring arriving in Jekyll Island in 1910.

Just click on the Forest Family® TURN chart below to enlarge. Enjoy.

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.
