Knowledge can be enjoyably empowering, and for the last few years Thanksgiving has meant so much more to me. For most of my life I had no idea that I had any type of connection to the first Thanksgiving. I had almost no awareness beyond the generation before me and the generation after me.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that according to recorded history, I had an ancestor who came to America in the Mayflower. What’s more, he would have been present at the very first Thanksgiving.
This newfound knowledge brings more meaning to this holiday for me, and it is my Thanksgiving wish that those who have not discovered their own personal connection to the first Thanksgiving find it soon.
This wish relates to a really huge number of people. According to estimates I’ve seen, about 35 million people have Mayflower ancestry from one or more of the dozens of Mayflower Pilgrims. That’s about one in ten living Americans, and I’m betting that most of them do not yet know. You may be one of them.
To help the discovery process along, we have just updated a number of our Mayflower ebooks, as well as many of our other ebook titles, from the new Family Forest® National Treasure Edition. These ebooks are like Fodor’s guides to ancestral history, leading you to the interesting people and places you should visit when you go there.
Happy Thanksgiving from the folks at the Family Forest® Project.

It seems that some people are missing out on plenty of delight and enrichment simply because our offer appears to be too good to be true.
A prospective customer (now a customer) emailed us earlier this week to ask us about it. It didn’t make sense. Why is it so cheap? Why is it more than $200 less than the previous edition? What’s wrong with it? Is it a stripped-down edition? Or what?
Actually, this is one of those rare examples of when something that sounds too good to be true, really is true.
The $20 Family Forest® New World Edition is truly light years ahead of the $249 Family Forest® Leadership Edition, which was already quite a bargain considering all that it could do (like generating thousands of dollars of reasonably priced ancestral history eBooks).
The Family Forest® New World Edition contains everything that was in the Family Forest® Leadership Edition, plus much much more.
The reason the New World Edition is currently so cheap is simply because we want to create demand for the pricier Family Forest® National Treasure Edition while it is still in development.
When people try the introductory tour we expect them to be so blown away with what was there almost three years ago, that they will absolutely have to have the next edition the moment it becomes available.
While the New World Edition can still do a great deal that no other ancestral history resource can yet match, and it can provide years of entertainment without upgrading, it is only a sneak peak, a preview, a concept sketch, of the very exciting Family Forest® Hollywood Edition coming soon.
In the mean time, the Family Forest® New World Edition is a truly outstanding bargain, and you can do your friends a great favor if you tell about this special offer while it is still available at this incredibly cheap price.
