conduct a comprehensive, complete and
non-biased worldwide research and investigation in order to be able to
or at least assemble the most approximate and solid theory regarding
the following questions:
1) Which is the real geographical
origin and place of birth of Christopher Colombus?
2) Are his
remains located in Santo Domingo or in Sevilla or are they really in both
parts? Is there any other place were they could be? In which
place do we have the majority and best quality of his remains?
3) Which are the actual most serious
theories regarding the geographical origin of Columbus?
exactly were his parents?
5) Who exactly were his direct
6) Which languages did he speak? Which ones did he
7) Was his birth name Cristoforo Colombo or
Cristobal Colom, etc.?
8) At what age did he die and of what cause
and in which year was he born?
9) Did he really have a generalized
10) Which similarities can we find between Italian
(Ligurian) "Colombo" families DNA and his DNA?
Scientific, Medical, Linguistic, Genealogical, Genetical, Historical and Anthropological Research Ethics,
Methodology and Principles
General Impartiality and "Non-Bias" Principles:
- No government, politcal groups or parties should interfere with
this investigation so it is not subject to political pressures
The authorities that control the sites were the remains of Colombus
presumably are located should fully cooperate to give access to
scientists to obtain small samples of DNA
- Genetic studies and
conclusions should be obtained and analysed by different
non-biased scientists, from
countries and nationalities. Results should be compared and
discussed. DNA should be compared at least with the remains of
presumed relatives (born also in the century in which Columbus was
born) in Italy, Portugal and Spain. Today's decendants DNA would be
extremely unreliable but it is advisable to also have these
- Serious historical theories should all be taken into
account and confronted. No theory should be "a priori" discarded.
Historical theories should be based on historical "forensic"
- Participating historians
should not be
biased by patriotisms or regionalisms
participating Anthropologists, Biologists and Scientists should also
demostrate that they are non-biased.
Process Ethics, Methodology, Quality and Discipline Principles:
- Research goals, efforts and results will be directed and
coordinated by the Campaign Director
- Every participating
professional will conduct her/his research freely and with a time
- The "owner" of each research result will be each
professional conductng it but will agree to let the Campaign use them
to build the new theory
- Each professional will guarantee the
impartiality and validity of her/his research results
research will have to be backed by the most modern and up to date
- Each research will have to be backed by
the most reliable sources
- Each researcher may use its own system
or methodology as long as it guarantees a serious outcome
Researches that do not comply with the three above principles will not
be taken into account
