Senator Barack Obama’s ancestors link him to U.S.
Presidents George Washington, James Madison, Harry Truman and Jimmy Carter,
according to the founder of the
Family Forest® Project.
Kamuela, HI Millisecond Publishing Company, Inc.,
the company that was first to establish the cousin relationship between
President Bush and Senator Kerry in the 2004 race, today announces its
discovery that presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama’s maternal ancestors
establish his relationship to a number of U.S. Presidents. “His exact relationships are calculations
based on a wealth of fully sourced knowledge within the Family Forest®,
our proprietary deep family history research tool” according to founder and
president, Bruce H. Harrison.
“On Friday we ran a
search in the Family Forest® of the ancestors of the senator’s mother,
Ann Dunham, and as the data reached back through many centuries of recorded
history, we made some surprising discoveries,” says Harrison.
“The Family Forest®
shows Senator Barack Obama’s mother,
Ann Dunham, having a number of her ancestral pathways leading back to early
colonial Virginia and New England, and some extend back for many centuries into
Europe,” Harrison points out.
of her ancestral pathways in the Family Forest® leads to
one of Senator Barack Obama’s 12th great grandfathers - the Hon.
Laurence Washington, who built Sulgrave Manor in Northamptonshire, England.
Over the course of five centuries, according to recorded history, he became the
ancestor of President George Washington, General George S. Patton, Governor
Adlai Stevenson, President Jimmy Carter, and Quincy Jones, Jr.
course, the Hon. Laurence Washington is also the ancestor of at least a million
other living people including some very famous ones, but most are everyday
folks,” adds Harrison.
maps of all the fully sourced family ties connecting Senator Obama
generation-by-generation to all these people, plus four other presidential
contenders (Senator John Edwards, Senator John McCain, Governor Bill
Richardson, and Governor Mitt Romney) can be explored in the upcoming Family
Forest® 2007 Edition.
