Lion’s Share Commitment to the Library of Congress

Today, to encourage and support valuable programs that closely relate to Family Forest® objectives, the Family Forest® Project is making what should become another very substantial commitment.

From now until the end of 2014, Millisecond Publishing Company, Inc. will be giving to the Library of Congress the lion’s share (meaning more than half) of all gross sales revenues of The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook.

This unique digital resource, quite possibly the largest eBook in existence, chronicles generation-by-generation lines of descent from an ancient French castle directly to a huge number of Americans, including many who are showcased at the Library of Congress.

As you can see at http://loc.gov/philanthropy/#:

The Library of Congress, the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution, is the world’s preeminent reservoir of knowledge, providing unparalleled integrated resources to Congress and the American people. The Library seeks to further human understanding and wisdom by providing access to knowledge through its collections, which bring to bear the world’s knowledge in almost all of the world’s languages and America’s private sector intellectual and cultural creativity in almost all formats.

Millisecond will be equally dividing this donation between four of the library’s key focus areas. They are

1. Acquire rare and unique items

Assist in building the national collection, adding unique and highly sought after materials to the Library’s holdings.

2. Exhibitions and Educational Programs

Support innovative exhibitions, digital outreach, publications and a wide range of educational programming designed to make the Library’s collections more accessible than ever!

3. Preserve and protect collections for future generations

Support key programs and activities focused on the preservation of rare and unique archival materials and collections.

4. Veterans History Project

Every veteran has his or her own war, and each is custodian of unique stories and memories. Support the Library’s efforts to preserve their legacy with the gathering, processing, preservation, and access to riveting oral histories and personal documents collected from veterans from all wars.

According to the recorded history mapped out in The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook at least 26 Presidents and Vice Presidents of the United States are descended from the founder of Briquebec Castle.

Could it really be true, as I believe, that at least one billion living people, including most Americans, are descended from the builder of this medieval castle?

Could it also be true, as I believe, that if you have any European ancestry within the last four centuries, you almost certainly have parts of your own early family heritage chronicled in this digital resource?

Is The Family Forest® Descendants of Baron Anslech Turstain of Briquebec eBook the largest eBook in existence? If printed, this digital resource would be a “book” that is five feet wide, as large or larger than most sets of encyclopedias.

This digital resource download contains exciting and personally enriching discoveries that could cost you thousands of dollars in time and expenses to find using traditional resources.

Imagine what it might mean to your children and grandchildren if you could show them they really do have family ties to the founding of America and the American Revolution, knights and ancient warriors, nobility and royalty, or even a castle that they can stay in.

Happy New Years America, and a special thank you to the Library of Congress for your efforts to preserve and pass along our inspirational heritage.

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.

Romney Leads Obama in Presidential Genes

Long before most Americans knew who Barack Obama was, and before most forecasters thought he had a chance of being nominated, we brought you the story of Barack Obama’s Presidential Genes.

So for the 2012 Presidential Election we decided to revisit the subject using a new digital resource that did not exist at the time of the 2008 Presidential Election, the Family Forest® National Treasure.

For a head-to-head comparison, I generated Family Forest® kinship reports(# 10) for both President Obama and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. In the quantity category, it was a very close race.

In the Family Forest® National Treasure Mitt Romney is related through birth or marriage to 35 U.S. Presidents (one of them is President Obama) and 18 U.S. Vice Presidents. President Obama is related through birth or marriage to 33 U.S. Presidents and 16 U.S. Vice Presidents.

It is in the quality category that Mitt Romney substantially wins over President Obama.

President Obama has only one single digit cousin (9th cousin or closer) who was either a U.S. President or a U.S. Vice President, President Hoover (8th cousin three times removed, 8C3R).

Mitt Romney has 14 single digit cousins who were either a U.S. President or a U.S. Vice President, and eight of them were Presidents.

In order of closeness, they are President Grant (5C4R), President Cleveland (6C3R), Vice President Curtis (6C3R), President Fillmore (6C4R), Vice President Colfax (6C4R), Vice President Morton (6C5R), President Harding (7C1R), President Franklin Roosevelt (8C1R), President Ford (8C1R), Vice President Rockefeller (8C2R), President Taft (8C3R), Vice President Wallace (9C), President Hoover (9C1R), and Vice President Humphrey (9C3R).

The newest release of the Family Forest® was called National Treasure because among other abilities, it is an educational resource that networks more Americans through generation-by-generation family ties to more of the key people, places, and events in U.S. history than any other single digital resource, including Facebook.

Genealogy and the 84th Academy Awards

Will genetics be a factor in bringing home an Oscar this year?

It appears that it may have been at the Golden Globes this year. Michelle Williams won for Best Actress for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe.  Could her award-winning performance have been because they share ancestors?

When I ran a Family Forest kinship report [# 10] for Michelle, I discovered that according to the large web of ancestral history already mapped out in the Family Forest, Michelle and Marilyn are cousins.

According to recorded history, they are ninth cousins once removed through their Peabody/Paybody ancestors, and they both have a number of other entertainment cousins who are also descended from the early Peabody/Paybody family of Massachusetts.

Those cousins include Glenn Close (one of Michelle’s competitors at the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards this year), Kyra Sedgwick, Halle Berry, Racquel Welch, Grace Slick, Mark Wahlberg, David Hyde Pierce, Orson Welles, Robert Lansing, and if you consider the political arena to be entertaining, Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman.

Kristine and I will be tuning into ABC on Sunday Febraury 26th to watch the 84th Academy Awards and see if Michelle wins the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of her cousin, Marilyn Monroe, or if one of her other cousins wins (Michelle is also a distant cousin of Meryl Streep).

From Ancient Rome to the 69th Annual Golden Globes

When you watch this short video, the “flying” chart you will see near the end comes to rest at the Emperor’s Palace in Ancient Rome in 320 A.D.

From that very specific place and time in history, generation-by-generation pathways lead forward to eight of the 69th Annual Golden Globes nominees  who are in the Family Forest® National Treasure.

Those eight nominees are all descended from the founder of Briquebec Castle in France, and their names can be found in the list of descendants. The Baron of Briquebec has four ancestral pathways to the Emperor’s Palace in the Family Forest® National Treasure.

So from an actress or actor in Albert Nobbs, Carnage, Cinema Verite, Enlightened, Iron Lady, Moneyball, 30 Rock, and Too Big To Fail, it is now possible for you to travel through a single web of generation-by-generation family ties from each of those eight movies or TV shows to each of the other seven.

The web of family ties in the Family Forest® connects actual ancestors in each European and U.K. country to Hollywood.

That’s why we say the Family Forest® Project is, along with numerous other edutainment objectives, Networking Family History with Hollywood™.

Enjoy the 69th Annual Golden Globes on NBC on Sunday January 15, 2012.
