Everyone would love to find old letters, a diary or journal from a distant relative. Some have been so fortunate. Have you written yours for your descendants? Post your memories; share your slice of life. It helps everyone recall their stories.See More
Thank you for allowing me to join. I found a Talley on FTdna Family Finder who is my confirmed 4th cousin. He sent me information to help me expand my genealogy data base. My connection with Tally/Talley begins with Sarah marrying Richardson in Georgia. One of Richardson's and Sarah's daughters married the brother of my great grandmother Nancy Thompson. I find all this fascinating. Phillip
Am interested in Kunders/Conrad/Conard line-we intersect at least once Robt Edwards married ELiz Conard. We believe his gg-father, John/Jonathan Edwards, had a daughter Jane who married Michael Conard/Conrad.
Hi Emily, I'm not a proponent of any particular DNA testing service over another one. The Haplogroup U group is for all interested in mtDNA testing who want to learn, share results and share maternal ancestry. If you have a blog post about how to choose a testing company, I just started a discussion called Testing Your mtDNA and I'd love to have you post there with links to your posts on this topic. Thank you! Barbara
Thanks for posting on the Haplogroup U group here at GenealogyWise. I've started a discussion for everyone who has Haplogroup U results and would like to share what they know of their maternal ancestry. I also read with some interest the post on your blog about government control of DNA test for genealogy purposes. Sure suggests now is the time to test your mtDNA and Y chromosome DNA!
Emily, I was in touch with you along time ago, I am a decendant of John and Polly Douglass Ogan, their son Irwin Ogan, his son Andrew Gish and his son Charles H Ogan was my grandfather (all proven)
I know Chet Ogan in Eureka CA. I pretty much have it all from Irwin down.
Thanks for inviting me Shirley
No, I do not know Debbie Kinnett. But I do know Debbie Kennett, and we have been corresponding by Email for quite a while now. I have even taken her DNA test.
I do thank you for your concern.
