What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Beginning Family History Researcher
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
Im not an expert in anything. But I have most experience in comparin Y-DNA results, Mutation Rates, Migrations, Histories. Also over 30,000 hours of interest in the Smith families of Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky.
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
To find out who my ancestors are. Now I am determined to trace my direct paternal line as far as possible.
Good morning, Tyson, and thank you for your comment.
I have been considering asking the 25 marker match from VT if he would allow me to purchase an upgrade for him to the 67 markers.
I was not aware of a Canada reference for Olyette. Would you mind telling me where you found that? I am so happy that Hiram and Lydia named some of their children "interesting" names - Olyette and Faba have led me to a number of discoveries.
Petey (my nickname)
Ive seen that but that never worked for me. The only one I ever saw that might work for me is where they think his father might be Jesse Smith. Who was in both Kanawha and Cabell around the time Peter would have been here. That might have been who was living with Peter in the 1840 census. There is a Jesse Smith Cemetery in Lincoln Co. WV. Never been to it. But was told that perhaps Peter Smith and his wife might be buried there. Im doing this all from memory.lol. But you have seen this family before good to know. I have who most of there kids married etc. Still need to tie up loose end on those to make sure those are right etc.
As I was telling you last night. Im working on the Smith's from Cabell Co. WV.
My direct line is Peter Smith born 1805 died around 1860 either Cabell or Lincoln Co. WV. Married Asinith Alford. Daughter of George and Mary Burnside Alford. There daughter Marinda Smith married Andrew Jackson Chandler.
Have you ran across this Peter Smith in research. thank you so much
