Family Forest® and the 62nd Annual Golden Globe Awards
January 13, 2005
While researching at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s
Golden Globes website for ways to illustrate just how intricately
and abundantly the Family Forest® links together Hollywood’s
captivating past and exciting present with people all over the
world, I read the page about the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille
It brought to mind a personal genealogy quote by Cecil B. DeMille
from The Autobiography of Cecil B. DeMille:
“A hundred and fifty years ago, one of my great-great-grandfathers
was a small merchant in Liverpool, England. Another was busily
losing his modest fortune in New York. They could not possibly have
known each other. They had neither nationality nor business ability
nor anything else in common. Yet Ralph Samuel’s success in
Liverpool and Peter DeMill’s failure in New York were linked by
their effects. I should know. I am one of the effects.”
“When I cannot sleep at night, instead of counting sheep, I try to
count those links, to travel back and live with them. After all,
they are living with me. If they had not been what they were, I
would not be what I am.”
Cecil B. DeMille, plus the winner of the Golden Globes’ 1998 Cecil
B. DeMille Award and father of Miss Golden Globe 2005, Clint
Eastwood, plus all of the other past and present Golden Globes
celebrities, each share 1600’s ancestors with countless millions
of living people.
The 62nd Annual Golden Globe Awards presentation being broadcast by
NBC on Sunday will largely be in reality an international event of
cousins around the world watching their Hollywood cousins on TV
being honored for excellence.
As surprising and counterintuitive as this probably sounds, the vast
and extremely interconnected web of family ties and ancestral
pathways already mapped out in the Family Forest® Leadership
Edition shows how this is true.
