Greetings, everyone.

It's been ages since I looked at this site.  So many of us thought it would be the next FB for Genealogists.  I'm sure part of the problem (at least with me) is there are too many places for genealogists and little time!

Regardless, I wanted all of you who are not aware that I have written a book on genetic genealogy.  It really is very basic and goes a bit (KEY WORD:  BIT) beyond the basics.

It is available in paperback and e-book.  Check it out!

Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond by E. Aulicino. Order online at AuthorHouse, Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Thanks everyone!  

BTW, I respond quicker to my email...see below!

I think that is more of an EEK, PJ, I'll try to follow it all.
Hi Judy,

Yup, we share the same group of suspects. William Simpson, born about 1748, died before Oct 1803, was actually William III. His daddy was born 1721, died 1825 - yes, at age 104. William Simpson I was born 14 Feb 1695, died after May 1746 (when he was paid 40 pounds of tobacco for repairing the seats in St. George's Parish Church, old Baltimore Co MD).

Oh, Mrs. William Simpson III was Mary Roberson. Mrs. Benjamin D. Simpson was her niece, Mary G. Roberson. Samuel Roberson was Mary G.'s father, and Benjamin D,'s uncle and father-in-law. And I think Samuel Roberson and William Simpson III were their own cousins! How is that for ewwww!

Last October I tested with 23andMe and found a Simpson cousin. Our common ancestor is William Simpson of NC. His descendants came to Missouri in the southern counties around Maries and Pulaksi. We are seventh cousins, once removed.

You can see the lineage for each of us at my blog under 23andMe Success Story.

As a result of posting that blog, a person who read it contacted me and she is a Simpson cousin, also!
