Hey- Im an all female line descendant of Lucretia (Williams) Hitchcock (1631 - 1675), born in 1631 in West Saco, York, Maine, in colonial America. (I think she's my 12th great grandmother if I counted right. And her mother technically has a profile, but her first name and maiden name are unknown-that's the profile linked below).
I'm currently waiting on the full mtDNA results, which should go back to Lucretia, and then to Mrs. Unknown Williams (barring any sort of NPE in my maternal line). While I'm waiting, I'd love to learn more about Lucretia and see if anyone could help me find more about her mother, so I can extend my all-maternal line further. Pretty much all I know is from her profile here at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Williams-16089,
which was wonderfully put together by her profile manager, David Barnhardt.
I was wondering if there was any possible mothers suspected for Lucretia that the DNA could help with, so we could extend the line. However, I dont really know where to look for that info. I've been focused on more recent ancestors so I haven't delved into colonial times very often and don't know the best sources to get into. I'm very excited to get my results and see what additional information it may dig up, and I cant wait to share it with all of wikitree.
I'd also like any recommendations for good information for specific mtDNA lines. I understand the biology of mitochondrial DNA, so I'm looking more for sites that help once I know my haplogroup.
Has anyone else traced their female line back to colonial America? I'm so excited about what will turn up and curious about how modern of a match I may get, or if it will all be ages back.
