Ancestral Gold

If you were Prince William or Prince Harry, of course you would have grown up expecting to see the faces of your ancestors on coins. After all, their paternal grandmother’s face appears on more coins than any person in history, a record which will certainly never be broken.

But for me, as I guess it is for you, the expectation of ever seeing a coin with the face of one of my ancestors seemed as ridiculously absurd as the possibility of me visiting Saturn.

Then all of a sudden, there he was! And he’s on a magnificent coin, a Roman Caesar (junior emperor) being a savior of London.

It happened in a used bookstore in Downtown Hilo. I was skimming through The History and Conquests of Ancient Rome by Nigel Rogers when I was halted by the 1,700 year old coin.

I read about the conquering hero depicted on the coin, and discovered that he was the father of someone who, according to the ancestral history mapped out in the Family Forest®, I have many different ancestral pathways to.

In fact, almost a decade ago I had written about discovering that I could see his son in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I also created what I believe is an amazing Family Forest® eBook about his son’s generation-by-generation descendants for 40 generations.

So of course I bought the book. How can anyone not own the book containing photographs of the first coin one discovers depicting his or her ancestor?

Constantius Chlorus is an ancestor of probably more than a billion people living today. If you are reading this in English (or French, or German, or Spanish, or Russian, etc.), he is almost certainly one of yours. I hope you enjoy the discovery, cousin.

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.

What do the 85th Academy Awards, PBS’ Downton Abbey, Knights Templar, and Super Bowl XLVII have in common?

oscarimage MEDIA: TV/Oscar trivia from Hollywords Publicity Group

VANCOUVER January 31, 2013 – Sounds impossible?

That’s exactly what Bruce Harrison, the mastermind behind Family Forest®,  would have thought before he spent tens of thousands of hours questing through the nooks and crannies of recorded history, filtering and distilling the knowledge that was assembled by experts, and digitally-indexing the results into an amazingly interconnected network of ancestral pathways that can now be explored visually.

The attached chart is a small example of the answers the Family Forest® can generate. Here’s what you will find: The first column is 21 people. The second column shows their connection to the Oscars, and the third column shows their role.  The next four columns show the computer-generated relationships of the 21 people in the first column to other people.

The fifth column is Seth MacFarlane, Host of the 85th Academy Awards.  The next column is to the 8th Earl of Carnarvon, the present Lord of Highclere Castle, which is the setting for PBS’ enormously popular series Downton Abbey.

Highclere Castle is also the setting for “Lady Almina And The Real Downton Abbey”, a present-day New York Times best-seller written by the 8th and current Countess of Carnarvon. The 8th Earl of Carnarvon has extensive early Colonial American ancestry, which makes him a single-digit cousin to many millions of Downton Abbey fans. Almost half of the people in the column are his single-digit cousins.

The following column is to the founder of Briquebec Castle.“This one is the most fascinating to me,” says Harrison, “because, according to the recorded history mapped out in the Family Forest®, it is one of my own ancestral homes.”  And not only does Briquebec Castle have Knights Templar history (remember the “Da Vinci Code”?), but it is possible to book a stay at the castle tonight, and it is the focal point of what may be the world’s largest eBook. In addition to Briquebec being an ancestral home to at least 20 of the 21 people in column one, it is also an ancestral home of the 8th Earl of Carnarvon, owner of Highclere Castle, and the Harbaugh brothers.

And speaking of the Harbaugh brothers, the last column is to the two of them who will be making history by dueling in Super Bowl XLVII this coming Sunday, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

All of that almost makes history cool, now doesn’t it?

Katie Couric’s Storytelling Genes

Why is Katie Couric still so popular after all these years?

Could it be because of her storytelling genes?

According to the ancestral history already mapped out in the Family Forest, Katie shares ancestors with America’s most famous storyteller. She is a 6C4R (sixth cousin four times removed) of Mark Twain.

Katie Couric and Mark Twain share Moorman ancestors. Some of their famous cousins through their Moorman connection are Tallulah Bankhead, Laura Linney, Lance Armstrong, and Hilary Duff.

The Family Forest® Project is, along with numerous other edutainment objectives, Networking Family History with Hollywood™, and connecting audiences through actual family ties better than any other digital resource, either online or offline.
