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.

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.
Some of the voices and faces of those celebrities who have brought us over a century of impactful news through radio and television are indelibly etched in our memories. Now millions of us can see that we have actual family ties to some of those voices and faces.
