Kristine and I have been big fans of AMC’s TURN since the first episode, and our interest in some of its characters reaches back to George Washington’s Lower Part.
When Kristine was looking last night for information about the April 25th start of TURN’s final season, she came upon a video where Mike Huckabee was explaining the value of TURN for Americans, especially young Americans.
So I queried the Family Forest® this morning to look for Mike Huckabee’s Family Forest® cousins. As I expected to find, Mike Huckabee shares ancestors in the Family Forest® with most of the key characters in TURN. Here they are, arranged from most distant to closest.

If you haven’t been watching this great show, you should catch up on the previous seasons before the TURN final season begins on April 25th. It will be time well spent.

I am very excitedly looking forward to the return of AMC’s TURN, and almost two decades of strategically growing the Forest Family® has been fueling my excitement.
One of the central characters is someone I wrote about more than a decade ago in a Captain’s Log (a blog before there were blogs).
Attached is a chart showing actual blood relationships (not just some kind of Kevin Bacon type six degrees of separation social connections) between a number of the TURN characters, plus a couple of living people, according to ancestral history already assembled in the Forest Family®.
Warning: it could be paradigm-shifting to think about what you are seeing on this chart. Every person there shares ancestors, according to fully-sourced recorded history, with every other person there.
There are 100 boxes filled in on this chart, and all of these calculations took just 39 minutes and 30 seconds to calculate from the Forest Family® National Treasure II preview.
With just a few minutes more, I could use the Forest Family® National Treasure II preview to calculate similar relationships from all ten of these people to politicians like President Obama or John Kerry or Hillary Clinton, media personalities like Mike Huckabee or Anderson Cooper or Garrison Keillor, business moguls like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, Hollywood icons like Errol Flynn or Katharine Hepburn or Humphrey Bogart, current Hollywood stars like Tom Hanks or Amy Adams or Matt Damon, etc., etc.
Enjoy the return of the TURN series, and please stay tuned for an upcoming Forest Family® blog about the secrecy genes from America’s first spy ring arriving in Jekyll Island in 1910.
Just click on the Forest Family® TURN chart below to enlarge. Enjoy.
