Fast Forward to Tombstone Arizona

Once upon a time, there was a Knight. He was of Claverham Manor in Arlington, Sussex, England.

Many of Sir Thomas Fiennes ancestors were also Knights. A number of his ancestors in the first ten generations were also Lords and Earls, and one was a famous king who was one the key historical figures in Braveheart. A Family Forest®  Ancestors-at-a-glance™ is available via this link.

Sir Thomas married Anne Urswick in about 1482 and is said to have had three sons and four daughters by her. All four of their daughters married.

According to the ancestral history digitally indexed and mapped out in the Family Forest®, their daughter Margaret is an ancestor of some of the most famous lawmen of the American West, the Earp brothers.

This means that five centuries after Sir Thomas and Anne married, their descendants were the key participants in the gunfight at (or near) the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, AZ.

Then, one century later, another one of Sir Thomas and Anne’s descendants, through their daughter Anne, portayed the central figure in the fight in a Hollywood movie. He is the famous Hollywood actor Kurt Russell, and he portrayed his 12c5r (twelth cousin five times removed), Wyatt Earp, in Tombstone.

Wyatt and Kurt have many other famous (or infamous) Family Forest® cousins through their common ancestors Sir Thomas Fiennes and Anne Urswick. Some of them include Janis Joplin and Christopher Lloyd and Anne Hathaway, Susan B. Anthony, Howard Dean, Paul Giamatti, Bing Crosby, General Abner Doubleday, Hon. David Souter, Timothy Geithner, Charlie Dent, Julia Child, Senator John Thune, Edna St. Vincent Milay, Edward Snowden, Sigourney Weaver, Penelope Ann Miller, Tuesday Weld, George Plimpton, John Herbert Adler, Marshall Field V, Anthony Perkins, Senator Lowell Weicker, Jr., Clarence Darrow, Bret Boone, John and Jim Harbaugh, Ed Helms, Dick Clark, Bob Newhart, Archibald Cox, Charles Dana Gibson, William DeWolf Hopper, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Jodie Foster, the Wilson brother of the Beach Boys, Secretary John Kerry, Caresse Crosby, Loudon Wainwright III, Amy Grant, Sarah Palin, Liv Tyler, Governor Mark Dayton, Richard Gere, James Spader, Horatio Gates Spafford, Lloyd, Beau, and Jeff Bridges Fred Gwynne, Secretary Arne Duncan, Vincent Price, and Larry Hagman.

How successful do you think Sir Thomas and Anne could have been in imagining what some of their descendants would be doing in five or six centuries?

How much more successful can you be in imagining what some of your descendants will be doing five or six centuries from now?

Sir Thomas Fiennes 379 page outline plus 180 page index is available here for only $9.99.

P.S. We claim, and as this blog should clearly demonstrate, that the Family Forest® is the best digital central source for connecting more people through family ties to Tombstone, AZ than any other resource. The same claim can be made for countless thousands of cities and towns across America and Europe.

Six Miles to Shore

Family Forest Connection Service

I can’t stop thinking about a Family Forest® connection service I recently completed for a young lady from California. It was memorable to me for several reasons, including starting with so little, and accomplishing so much.

The most inspirational part for me is thinking about the spirit of one of Marsia’s ancestors, one of her 7th-great-grandfathers, with the unusual surname of Brothwell. Joseph was a soldier from Yorkshire, England. I found a story about him on page 1,350 of A History of the Old Town of Stratford and the City of Bridgeport Connecticut, by Rev. Samuel Orcutt, published in 1886.

More than two centuries ago, Joseph jumped ship in the West Indies, and swam six miles to shore! Then he somehow came to New York, then moved on to Black Rock, in Fairfield, CT, and made his home there at what is now called Stratfield.

Forty-some years later, I still remember sailing due west into the Gulf of Mexico from Longboat Key, FL in a 15′ Venture Cat. It sat very close to waterlevel. At probably about a mile out, I looked back and the shoreline had almost disappeared. It was scary.

What would it have been like if I had continued sailing toward Texas for about five more miles, then jumped off, and tried swimming back to shore? And done it more than two centuries ago, when there were more and bigger creatures in the sea?

What did life look like through Joseph Brothwell’s eyes? What was he thinking while he was very vulnerable in the midst of the perils of the sea, with miles still left to swim?

How inspirational might it be to a college-bound young lady to discover that she carries the genes of this spirited and determined adventurer?

How many motivational stories about your own ancestors are squirreled-away in the nooks and crannies of recorded history, waiting to be discovered?

Maybe the beginning of a new year is the perfect time for you to consider giving us the opportunity to utilize the Family Forest® to lead your family to one or more of those stories.

Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF)

Rev. Al Harlow of the Waikoloa Community Church has inspired us to do more.

From now until Christmas 2014, we will be giving the lion’s share (more than half) of all sales revenues from one of our key connector titles to help expand and multiply the excellent service being delivered every day by the Missionary Aviation Fellowship.

The eBook is The Family Forest ® Descendants of Emperor Constantine I The Great.

As you will discover in the short how-to video, this digital resource is a seven to ten century extension for most of the descendants of our first lion’s share title, and all of the descendants of our second lion’s share title, and our third lion’s share title.

The flying chart at the end of the Rome Reborn video lands on the Emperor’s Palace in 320 A.D., which is almost certainly one of your own ancestral homes.

This unique digital resource is a Fodor’s-type guide to centuries of generation-by-generation ancestral history recorded by many well-respected experts of their time.

We hope you will enjoy following the links and learning more.

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.

Fourth of July Declaration

Today, in honor of all of the Americans who have served and are serving, the Family Forest® Project is making what we hope will become a very substantial commitment.

From now until the 4th of July 2014, we will be giving to the Fisher House at Tripler Hospital the lion’s share (meaning more than half) of all sales revenues of The Family Forest Descendants of Duncan I of Scotland.

There are some engaging and personally enriching stories behind this, beginning with the valuable service of The Fisher House Foundation and the achievements of its super-patriot founder Zachary Fisher, including his purchase of the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier.

Then there’s the multifaceted Family Forest® and its amazingly interconnected web of generation-by-generation family ties that spans continents and thousands of years.

According to the recorded history mapped out in The Family Forest Descendants of Duncan I of Scotland, at least 20 Signers of the Declaration of Independence are descendants of Duncan I, and another six Signers married descendants of Duncan I.

The two most decorated American soldiers in our two World Wars each have parts of their ancestral pathways chronicled back to this ancient warrior in this digital resource.

Could it really be true, as I believe, that at least one billion living people, including most of the people serving in the U. S. Armed Forces today, are descendants of this Shakespeare character?

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 Duncan I of Scotland the second largest eBook in existence?

If printed, it would be a “book” that is five feet wide, as large or larger than most sets of encyclopedias. Even though it is in Adobe eBook format, doesn’t such a huge digital resource belong in a category other than eBook?

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 character from Shakespeare who is portrayed in Hollywood movies.

Happy 4th of July America, and a special thank you to Vietnam Veteran Leo Sears and the Big Island Film Festival for introducing Family Forest® to The Fisher House.
