I am a new member of the Devon Geneology group and in my exploring the site or related sites I read someone's message asking for information about Daniel Emmett.  I have data about him and his family but now can't find that message.  Worse, I can't find how to tell anyone hence my contacting you.  I don't want to go outside the Devon Geneology group.

Maybe you can help

You are most likely correct. My gmail was also included in the cc and it is not a part of my GW profile. Curious timing, however.

I just finished reading DNA USA by Bryan Sykes. I enjoyed the book but of course I am into genealogy DNA. Still lots of DNA stuff I am not familiar with and the technology is moving faster than I can keep up with. Sykes spent 3 months travelling across the USA trying to understand the American melting pot of genes. Sykes used new DNA methodology called Chromosome Painting to look at some individual DNA. This painting method was used to distinguish European, African and Asian/Native American DNA markers that may show up in individual DNA results.

One interesting item that caught my attention was a colored map of the USA showing self-declared ancestries in the highest proportions in each county taken from the 2000 census. I was surprised to see such a large group of German ancestry indicated in what appears to be at least one half of the USA. Almost all of Michigan shows German ancestry except for a couple of very small areas of Dutch, African American and Finnish ancestries. Almost every state west of Penn. in the northern half of the USA showed mainly German. You can find the map on Wikipedia

Dear Debbie,

I'm sorry if this is not the best place for this but having seen the mails from Richie C. on January 23, 2010 at 2:17pm in Cruwys Genealogy (of which I'm not a member) regarding the Cruwys line I thought you'd both like to see the attached tree listing Cruwys and Pollard. I don't know its origin, it was sent to me my a researcher some years ago.


With regards,


Colin Crews

when I signed up on the GW I listed on the Advanced Researcher. I think I was wrong. In 1990 I had a brain tumor removed follow by a stroke. Before that I could of signed up "Advanced" but I am still working my way back there! I am really enjoying the Genealogy Wise and all the groups it has to offer. I have been Deaf most of my life and joining anything with genealogy is still pretty much impossible with us. This has open many doors and I think you all. Thank you Debbie K. for your note for me. What is a gift?? suz

Please view the comment directly below yours on My Page. There is information from a distant cousin on Brinson, who immigrated to America from Devon.

I can't test for Pigg DNA as it was my father's line, although I have living male cousins who could test. I am going to ask one to test, because so far I can't prove my Pigg line in America. I was hoping we could learn something about Pigg from those in England and world wide. I used to email a Pigg descendant in Australia.
I have another line that came to Colonial America from Devon, and that family may have descendants there. I saw your interest in Devon DNA. I have not yet tested. Perhaps you could give me pointers, in choosing a group for MtDNA, and how far I really need to go back. I have a son to test in the Taylor group. Many of my lines appear to descend from English families.
Thank you for making your comments.

I am trying to find the link to my last name Allison, a decendant of Robson Cruse. His bible and some other items have been handed down to me. I have just discovered this site. Might you have anything on his childrens children?

Hi Debbie,
Devon is great but do you know of a Cornwall group?

(My cardiologist says no more Devon cream... what a blow)
