Congratulations Alec Baldwin

Kristine and I were very pleased to see that Alec Baldwin was selected as a host at Turner Classic Movies earlier this month. We feel this way not only because of the excellent performance he will certainly deliver in that important role, but for Family Forest® reasons.

 

Alec and his famous brothers have been lineage-linked in the Family Forest® since before the New World Edition (we first mentioned his connection here and more recently here), but only skeletally and only as far back as the early seventeenth century. By strategically focusing on his ancestry since the TCM announcement, Alec’s ancestral history has now been connected into the central corridor of genealogy and he has become one of the most extensively networked people within the Family Forest®.

 

Everyone who watches TCM as regularly as we do knows that Robert Osborne is a very tough act to follow, even for someone with as much talent and abilities as Alec Baldwin. So we hope Alec will accept our offer to help him provide an additional new feature at TCM.

 

Alec can see more of his own ancestral pathways, according to recorded history,

mapped out in the Family Forest® than anywhere else, either online or offline. The same can be said for many of the Hollywood stars in TCM movies.

 

The powerful services we provide here at Millisecond Publishing Company makes us uniquely positioned to help him connect large audiences personally, through actual family ties to the cast and characters in many of the great classic films he will be presenting at TCM.

 

The next time that Alec introduces Plymouth Adventure on TCM (see trailer here), he can use the Family Forest® National Treasure Edition to let viewers know the name of his own ancestor who is portrayed in the movie.

 

I can unequivocally declare from my own personal experience that it is a truly magical moment the first time you see one of your own ancestors portrayed in a classic Hollywood movie. It is an enriching experience we hope every TCM fan will have. Best wishes cousin Alec.

Sarah Palin is related to who?

While watching Sarah Palin and Alec Baldwin talking together Saturday night on SNL I couldn’t help wondering if they had any idea they are related to each other. Even though they are fairly distant cousins, because their first ancestral connection is back in the Royal Channel according to recorded history, they do actually share ancestors with each other.  

 

We ran some outline reports of immigrant ancestors from the Family Forest® to see who else shares ancestors with Gov. Sarah Palin. There are some of her surprising family ties in the Thomas Emerson report (see PDF here. family-forest-outline-report-for-thomas-emerson), and more of them can be found in the other reports (William Arnold, Deacon Samuel Bass, Thomas Brigham, Zechariah/Zachariah Field, Surgeon John Greene, Stephen Post, Richard Sears, and Corporal Roger Wellington), which are available upon request. 

 

Following are some tips for exploring the Thomas Emerson report. Sarah Palin: page 55

 

Hawaiian family ties

 

Cooke family of Bank of Hawaii, Molokai Ranch, etc.: pages 4-25 

 

Waterhouse and Alexander families of Alexander and Baldwin: page 7

 

Atherton family of Atherton Foundation: page 8

 

Monty Richards family of Kahua Ranch: page 13

 

Cowell family of Kowali Farm: page 16

 

Other family ties (both for Sarah Palin, and also for her Hawaiian cousins)

 

Ford and Firestone heirs: page 2

 

Mitt Romney: page 37

 

Buffalo Bill Cody: page 41

 

President Taft: page 34

 

Astronaut Alan Shepard: pages 54-55

 

Famous Civil War Generals: page 57

 

Tennessee Williams: page 58

 

F. Scott Fitzgerald and Shirley Temple: page 59

 

President Fillmore: page 63

 

Bill Gates: page 67

 

Please keep in mind when exploring this outline report that it is only one tiny snap shot from the Family Forest®, and it’s much more fun to explore these connections visually via the disc.
