I am retired and live in West Hartford, CT. My current interests include digital photography (mostly birds/wildlife/landscapes with DSLR equipment; also, scans of old prints using Photoshop), and family genealogy, and US history.
East Texas branch (originated Plymouth, then Dukes, MA) - my wife's maternal side
Jim Angelo's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jim or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 111 markers, haplogroup R-M269, Ysearch 7X8A3, FTDNA kit #620889
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup U5a1a2b, FTDNA kit #620889
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jim:
Family Tree DNA Family Finder, GEDmatch T322181, FTDNA kit #620889
Hope you're doing well. I binged on New Sweden settlers today (as you know)! I'm going to take a break and shovel, but if you fancy a challenge, take a look at Hendrick Coleman. The marriages of several of his daughters are named in forefather articles, but nothing on him. He's been attached by merges to a Lenni-Lenape wife (three of them right now, but I believe they're the same person). Talk to you soon, Heather
I noticed that you used the Challenge Tracker to track changes during last weekend's Saturday Sourcing Sprint. Please consider officially joining us for the Saturday Sourcing Sprints. You can find information, including how to join, on the Sprints Help page.
No pressure, every profile with a source makes our WikiTree better. Your work will continue to be included in Tracking Sheet's Unregistered total at the bottom of the help page if you do not register.
Your work is appreciated. Thanks for sourcing!

Jim, you haven't had too much eggnog yet! I was the manager of Joseph Allen. I just have 10,000 profiles on my watchlist and am trying to cut down. : )
I really only added Joseph in an attempt to extend your maternal line since we're a close-ish match for mtDNA. It's just so ancient that there's probably no recent connection, as you don't share an autosomal match with my maternal aunt, my brother, or me.
Jim, I noticed you're at the top of my match list for mtDNA, but I don't think our maternal lines connect in modern times. Would you be willing to note your mtDNA test here? Might as well add the Y too. :-)
