Senator Obama’s Famous and Infamous Relatives

As we have pointed out last week, the Family Forest® Project is completely non-partisan In that spirit, since we just offered free genealogy resources for the Republican ticket, here is a free genealogy resource for the Democratic ticket  family-forest-kinship-report-of-barack-obama4.

 

This report was generated from the Family Forest® New World Edition. It is called a kinship or relatives report. It shows who in the Family Forest® is related to Senator Obama, exactly how they are related, and who their common ancestor is.

 

In this case the report was scaled back to show only those relatives within a 12-generation radius from Barack Obama, and it shows only those relatives who were lineage-linked to him over three years ago in the New World Edition.

 

So it doesn’t include his wife Michelle and their daughters, Hollywood actor Robert Duvall, famous gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok , Vice President Dick Cheney, or most of the hundreds of thousands of people Senator Obama is now family-networked to in the upcoming Family Forest® National Treasure Edition.

 

But it does include three U.S. Presidents (on pages 8, 35, and 68), a famous Confederate general (on page 42), probably the most famous Wall Street financier of all times (on page 46), a famous woman artist (on page 48), and a Hollywood icon (on page 67), plus an infamous would-be presidential assassin (on page 32).

 

In the new Family Forest® millions of voters will be able to visually explore their own generation-by-generation family ties to the man who is expected to soon become the next President of the United States of America.

National Treasure

This is the most exciting time ever for us as we finalize the Family Forest® for the latest, and by far the greatest, release in the thirteen and half year history of the

Family Forest® Project.

 

This release will be called the Family Forest® National Treasure Edition for several reasons, beginning with what we were told early in the project by a great American who is a former Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives.

 

After looking at our work he said to us “You do a great service to our country by encouraging people to find out about their roots and engaging them personally in its history.”

 

We took this as a compliment for the work we had already completed, confirmation that we were on the right track, inspiration for moving forward, and concrete guidance steering the continuing future growth of the Family Forest® Project.

 

It has been my personal goal for quite some time now that one or more U.S. Presidents will publicly call the Family Forest® Project a national treasure, and after 

a number of great releases along the way we feel certain that this release truly deserves the title of National Treasure.

 

The Family Forest® can now connect far more people personally, through generation-by-generation family ties, to more people, places, and events in human history (including Sarah Palin and the 2008 Presidential Election) than any other single digital resource.

 

It is a unique supplemental edutainment resource to enhance the study of almost every facet of American history by students of all ages, and it is partisan-neutral.

 

As it says on almost all of our releases over the last decade “While the Family Forest® ……. Edition is very much about genealogy, it is primarily about U.S. history, and more than 3,500 years of Old World history leading up to the birth of the United States. It is a fun and very easy to use reference source that should be a valuable resource for every student of history, young or old.”

 

We are confident that our People-Centered Approach to History® has reached the magnitude and scope that deserves to be called a national treasure, and we receive delight from our belief that the Family Forest® Project will be helping to inspire future leaders to greatness.

Another Barack Obama Cousins Story

A news story began circulating Tuesday about Vice President Dick Cheney and presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama being distant cousins.

Anyone using the Family Forest® New World Edition from two years ago can instantly pull up a chart that illustrates, through generation-by-generation family ties, this supposedly new story.

The story fails to mention some of the other famous cousins Vice President Dick Cheney and presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama share through this common ancestor, early Maryland settler Mareen Duval.

Those other distant cousins include Harriet Miers (didn’t she receive special treatment from her cousin Dick Cheney’s boss earlier this year?), Wallis Warfield (the Duchess of Windsor), President Harry Truman, Paris Hilton, and Emmy award winning Hollywood actor Robert Duvall.

Second Lady Lynne Cheney does not mention that she is also a distant cousin of presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, and that one of their common ancestors built and lived in a castle. This information can be seen by following the links in Probably Your Castle.

More of Senator Barack Obama’s family ties to the White House can be found in a story from early this year about his presidential genes.

Stories like these are much more interesting when you use the Family Forest® to explore the visual illustrations which are behind these stories. In addition to many other “best of” claims it deserves, the Family Forest® New World Edition is the best digital central source for generation-by-generation ancestral pathways leading to and from the White House, and the presidential 2008 Election.
