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.
