DNA E-V13 leads me to Roman Wales source of Smith Family lineage

My DNA (E-V13) is from the Balkans and shows in Wales.  Roman auxillaries recruited in the Balkans were sent to Wales in the first century AD.  My paper trail leads to Lincolnshire, England. 


Is there any way to bridge the gap from Wales first century to England 1400s?

Genealogy Conference Duel Positions

  Genealogy Conferences  Duel Positions


 I read Janet H. comments recently and it was a very interesting and brought to mind lots of thoughts.

 So I waited a few days until I could get them put in smoothly in my mind.

 That does not happen often. I learned when young my brain is wired different than many and so my thoughts are many times to fast for the proper exposure to society. 


 Janet, first I look forward to seeing you each time you are at…

2011 Census

There's a lot of buzz around the various genealogy sites and societies about the 2011 census. You will remember in 2006 the Government in it's infinite wisdom decided to give people the option of "opting out" of having their census records released in 92 years. A truly nightmarish thought for any…

Finding New Branches

What a joy to expand a branch on your family tree.  I was recently contacted on Facebook by a young woman who asked me if I knew the connection from their family to mine family.  I emailed the young woman and told you I would take a look and see.  Well, after about three hours of researching and comparing trees, I found the branch.  We connect from my 3 great grandfather Martin Etnyre, her connection is his brother Lenhard Eidenire. WOW is all I have to say about connecting with a branch that… Continue

Headstone Hunters

Having travelled  to quite  a few cemeteries  in search of headstone images and monumental inscriptions, I now realise that I have a massive amount of images – some good, some not so good.
Searching cemeteries, I normally take other images of headstones randomly. It might be the images I have taken have a similar name to those that I am…

Genealogists to assist, share this Information with those in need of help?

  I just came off the Facebook page that is assisting people to inter link with the lost threads of their lives or their deceased familes lives. They are finding and sharing: scraps of photos, crochet work, quilting, photo albums, wedding pictures, Graduation shots, family scenes, picnic and fun events. 

 Since a quilt shop was destroyed and she held many quilts on display, I noticed in the talks that some were aware that there was a Quilt Shop damaged. Others just found them and had…
