Which Family ForestÒ do I want?

 

The answer is quite simply, the “Family Forest® National Treasure Edition!”

 

The quantum leaps forward between each edition are growing larger every time, and are nearly impossible to explain in words. They must be explored visually to get the full impact of the “Ah ha!” experience.

 

 

Evolution of the Family Forest® Project

 

The Family Forest® Project started with Bruce growing the Delaware Family Forest. For an individual to be included, he or she must have 1) been born, married, or died in Delaware, or 2) done something historically noteworthy in Delaware, or 3) been related through birth, marriage or occasionally adoption to someone in the first two categories. Accessing this title required the use of Family Tree Maker.

 

Simultaneously Kristine was growing the Pittsburgh Family Forest. For an individual to be included, he or she must have 1) been born, married, or died in Pittsburgh, or 2) done something historically noteworthy in Pittsburgh, or 3) been related through birth, marriage or occasionally adoption to someone in the first two categories. Accessing this title also required the use of Family Tree Maker.

 

Bruce’s next title was the Founders & Patriots Family Forest. For an individual to be included, he or she must have 1) been in the 1911 Register of The Order of The Founders and Patriots of America, or 2) been related through birth, marriage or occasionally adoption to someone in the first category. Accessing this title also required the use of Family Tree Maker.

 

Simultaneously Kristine was growing the Presidential Family Forest. For an individual to be included, he or she must have 1) been a U. S. President or Vice President, or 2) been related through birth, marriage or occasionally adoption to someone in the first category. This was the first Family Forest title to be a stand-alone CD, as it offered the vastly superior search and display capabilities of Progeny Software’s Family Explorer. It also included greatly expanded and enhanced versions of our first three titles, which were accessible via an unlocking code.

 

The American & European Family Forest Millennium Edition was the first edition to begin merging our earlier titles, which were all growing enormously, and each was increasingly overlapping with the other three titles. Delaware and Pittsburgh were merged (manually, guided by human intelligence) to become the much larger Mid-Atlantic Family Forest. The disc also included much larger versions of the Founders & Patriots Family Forest and the Presidential Family Forest. Also, starting before the end of the last century (and still the guiding rule), for an individual to be included in Family Forest, he or she must be related through birth, marriage or occasionally adoption to someone who is already in the Family Forest.

 

The American & European Family Forest Odyssey Edition was the first Family Forest edition to include all of our earlier titles merged into one extremely interconnected web of fully sourced family ties spanning over twenty centuries. Now for the first time, one search would globally search through all of the people in the entire Family Forest.

 

The Family Forest 2002 Edition completed the merge process, and was the title that really began showing the accelerating growth taking place in the Family Forest now that the very broad foundation and very tall framework were solidly in place.

 

The Family Forest World Record Edition was the hugest leap forward yet in the history of the Family Forest Project, but it only hinted at what was coming next.

 

The Family Forest Leadership Edition was by far an even larger leap forward, and again, it only hinted at what was coming next, the enormously expanded Family Forest New World Edition.

 

For the last four years, some of you and your family have been experiencing the delight and enrichment of exploring the world’s most interconnected digital resource for ancestral history, using our special preview edition, the Family Forest® New World Edition.

 

The Family ForestÒ National Treasure Edition is by far an even larger leap forward than ever before, and you can immerse yourself in countless views of history and a one-of-a-kind amazing journey through our unique Family Forest®.

 

Thank you for your early support of our Family Forest® Project.
