For Immediate Release:
Pocahontas’ Descendants at the Movies
Kamuela, HI Thursday, August 25, 2005 – At theaters
across America this Fall, many actual descendants of the central heroine of
New Line Entertainment’s “The New World,” Native American Princess Pocahontas, will
be able to see at least three of their own ancestors vividly portrayed on the
big screen by Q'Orianka Kilcher,
August Schellenberg, and
The Family Forest® is the world’s most interconnected
digital resource for ancestral history, and it now visually connects Princess Pocahontas
through generation-by-generation family ties to many thousands of her living
descendants, people who would call Pocahontas grandmother (preceded by some
number of “greats”).
It is estimated that probably more than fifty million
Americans have ancestral roots that reach back to early Jamestown, the setting
for “The New World.” The Family Forest is the best digital central source for
maps of generation-by-generation ancestral pathways (according to fully sourced
ancestral history) leading to and from early Jamestown settlers, and it even
includes at least one that leads to the Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince
William, and Prince Harry.
An even greater number of living people, possibly several
hundred million, are actually descended from the financiers of the Virginia
Company, the venture behind much of the early settlement of Jamestown and the
New World. The Family Forest maps countless lines of descent from Virginia
Company financiers toward their descendants at the movies.
Hollywood presentations are much more compelling and
enriching when one discovers that he or she has actual family ties to characters
on the silver screen or television, and the Family Forest is the best digital
central source for discovering those connections.
