Introducing Ancestors-at-a-glance™

One of the most exciting features of the new Family Forest® National Treasure Edition is the ability to generate visually engaging Ancestors-at-a-glance™ fan charts. 

The first of many of the free charts we will be posting is for Prince William.

As the name says, this is simply a glance at Prince William’s ancestry. For greater detail, dozens of centuries of his ancestry beyond ten generations, the source citations behind each note and connections, and much much more, you will be amazed and delighted by what you can discover in the new one-of-a-kind Family Forest® National Treasure Edition.

Sarah Palin is related to who?

While watching Sarah Palin and Alec Baldwin talking together Saturday night on SNL I couldn’t help wondering if they had any idea they are related to each other. Even though they are fairly distant cousins, because their first ancestral connection is back in the Royal Channel according to recorded history, they do actually share ancestors with each other.  

 

We ran some outline reports of immigrant ancestors from the Family Forest® to see who else shares ancestors with Gov. Sarah Palin. There are some of her surprising family ties in the Thomas Emerson report (see PDF here. family-forest-outline-report-for-thomas-emerson), and more of them can be found in the other reports (William Arnold, Deacon Samuel Bass, Thomas Brigham, Zechariah/Zachariah Field, Surgeon John Greene, Stephen Post, Richard Sears, and Corporal Roger Wellington), which are available upon request. 

 

Following are some tips for exploring the Thomas Emerson report. Sarah Palin: page 55
