"Hello to the extended Noble family! I want to let everyone know that Family Tree DNA has specials on at present. If possible, it would be great to have more tests given that the paper trail seems to have disappeared into the mists of time!
"I have just joined the project under my own name, rather than my brother's. He has mtDNA matches to 2 Nobles, so I am hoping I will have them also.
My kit # is 276566, I have a very old unique mtDNA L3e5a which originates in the Chad Lake basin"

"Thanks Danilo, I have had a look at that Henry. He must be part of the Ulster family somewhere. It seems there were a lot of them, unfortunately he does not seem to belong to any of the families we are looking for."
