Kristian Pedersen was researching his father, who abandoned him when he was 4 and ended up finding a half brother who is half Alluit Indian living Alaska.  This started his journey to learn more about his family and has lead him to more cousins, aunts and uncles in Denmark, Scotland and much much more.the descendant

How about being directly descended from The Mayflower, women hung in Salem (others who were accused and accusers), the Wampanoag Indians and cousins to more than half of our Presidents.

It has been quite a journey and has led him to come up with an idea for a television pilot, the Descendant.   Check out this Facebook Page or the website, The Descendant.
