Can trace my my direct lineage to Robert de Atherton c. 1175 (xx G-Grandfather of all of us :-) ). Very interested if any other men have done DNA testing.
Researching mostly in Lancashire and Cheshire. Relations with Athertons of Atherton. Also my paternal Mother's maiden name, lol. can trace to
My maternal Grand Mother.
From maternal Grand-Father. Traced back to 1875 from Germany. Real issues finding information before then.

Hi Bob,

I haven’t heard back from you about the United Kingdom Project breaking up into the individual country-level projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of them at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hi Bob,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Hi Bob,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)

This book may be of interest to you.

The Family Forest Descendants of Lady Joan Beaufort. You can search it at Don't know how dependable it is, but may give you leads to follow. See entry 11566 for Consider or Sidney Shattuck.
