Biography

I DO NOT HAVE THE BULK OF MY FAMILY ATTACHED HERE TO WIKITREE. TO SEE MY FULL TREE, VISIT ME HERE: Dars Ancestry Tree Also, my personal database contains a lot more information on my ancestors, including deeds, court and land records. Feel free to send me a private message with questions or requests.

Darlene has been involved in genealogy for over thirty years. She got the genealogy 'bug' from her paternal grandmother Verlie, who was always interested in her ancestors and traveled the country meeting distant cousins. The notes left by her grandmother proved invaluable to Darlene in beginning her research on her grandmother's family.

Darlene spent several years focused on medieval genealogy, spending an average of 60+ hours/week for years researching to learn more than just 'dates' about her ancestors and their families from medieval times. It provided a good history lesson and gave her a new passion. Upon discovering WikiTree in early 2014, she has moved her focus from researching these medieval families to sharing her information online.

Darlene's primary focus these days is as a genetic genealogist, focusing on DNA and mapping her parents' chromosomes. She uses DNAGedcom and GenomeMate Pro, along with Gedmatch, to help her locate triangulated groups and organize her research. To better enable her to locate the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) with newfound cousins, she is working on completing her family tree by recording all of the siblings and their spouses & children, and then the same down the next generation. for seven generations. This will result in tens of thousands of new profiles in her tree. She sends lots of emails to the triangulated groups and oversees researching everyone's trees to locate the MRCA. It's challenging, frustrating, and occasionally rewarding! She knows this is her best chance to break down some of the brick walls in her ancestry! She hopes that others will work on developing their family trees to have a better chance of finding the match!

When you can tear her away from her research, Darlene enjoys spending time in the Canadian Rockies hiking and canoeing in the summer months. During the winter, you'll find her and her husband (along with their Golden Doodle dog) sailing the islands on their catamaran.

My maiden name, ATHEY, traces back to Galway, Ireland. My ancestor George ATHY came over to Maryland from Ireland in 1662 as a bond servant to Thomas Dent. The ATHYs were one of the leading families in Galway, being one of the original 'Tribes of Galway'. My father's DNA has been tested and his descent proven from this line.

My mother's maiden name, McINANEY, also traces back to Ireland. (It was primarily spelled McEneany or McAneany in Ireland). The name in Irish has two forms: Mac an Dhéaghanaigh (son of the dean) and Mac Conaonaigh (hound of the fair). This helps explains why the name is pronounced “Mac” rather than “Mc”. The family was a sept of Oriel, Oriel being the ancient territory covering what are now counties of Armagh, Monaghan, Louth, and Down. There are at least 36 different spellings of the name. Quite strange is the case of six members of the same family whose tombstones all bear a different spelling. Four are buried in the same cemetery, i.e. Peter MacEneaney (the father), Mary McAneaney (the mother), Francis McAneney and Patrick McEnaney (sons). The other two children were buried in a different cemetery under the names of Catherine McEneany and John Bird (the word "ean" is Irish and means "bird", thus the pseudo-translation). Other English forms include McAnaney, McAnany, McAnanny, McAnneeny, etc. McEnany, McEneeny, etc., McNeeny, McNeany, McNanny, McNenny, McNeny and so on. My immigrant McInaney ancestor, Arthur McInaney, came from Ireland (supposedly county Tyrone) to ONTARIO, CANADA circa 1830-50. The family later immigrated to the U.S. through Minnesota.

Other names on my maternal grandfather's side include the Irish families of CLANCY, McCARTHY, QUINLIVAN and the Scottish families of ANDERSON, CRERAR, DOW, AND MACGLASHAN.

Families on my maternal grandmother's side include BEERY/BIERI, BEIGHLEY, CONKRIGHT, DENNISTON, MILLISON/MUHLEISEN, ELLIS, HOFFMAN/HUFFMAN, HUNSAKER, IMLER/IMBLER, JOHNSON, ROBERTS, SEARS/ZERR, WHITE.

Families on my paternal grandmother's side include the NANTUCKET families of BARNARD, BUNKER, COFFIN, COLEMAN, FOLGER, GARDNER, HUSSEY, MACY, STARBUCK; MAYFLOWER families HOWLAND, HURST and TILLEY; as well the SOUTH CAROLINA/GEORGIA families of BRADFORD, DORMINY, KELLY, KIRKLAND, LAMB, ROUSE, SNELL, STROUD, THRIFT; as well as FITCH, KIRKENER, MASON, PECK, SHEAFE, WHITFIELD.

Families on my paternal grandfather's side include: ABBOTT, ATHEY, BERRY, BIGGS, BURNS, FALLIS, FRY/FREY, KIEFFER, LEWIS, MILLER, MAURER/MOWDER, PABST, RUSSELL, STRAUB/STRAWB, WILLIAMS.

Followed Tags
Darlene is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
ARBORISTS
My primary focus is merging and repairing/cleaning up pre-1500 profiles, which tend to be related to the European Aristocrats project.
ATHEY
My maiden name is Athey. This line (proved through DNA) traces back to 'Captain' George Athy, who immigrated from Galway, Ireland to Maryland in the mid-1600s.
DNA
I've been interested in DNA for over a decade. I had my dad's mtDNA tested a dozen years ago to help a cousin prove her connection to the Kirklands. Since then I've tested my dad's Y-DNA and auDNA, as well as my mom's and my auDNA. I'm currently working on mapping chromosomes and hope to break down some brick walls via DNA. I'm happy to help others with DNA questions.
DNA_PAINTER
I use this tool, along with GenomeMate Pro, to keep track of mapping chromosomes.
EUROARISTO
I am co-leader of the overall European Aristocrats project as well as the British Isles Royals & Aristocrats 742-1499 sub-project. I became interested in medieval genealogy in the early 2000s and spent several years focusing my research on that period.
IRISH_ROOTS
Both of my parents have Irish ancestry. My DNA shows me to be about 31% Irish.
KIRKLAND
My Kirklands trace back to Caleb Kirkland of Alabama, and his ancestors that trace to Richard Kirkland of Anne Arundel, Maryland & Fairfax, Virginia.
LEADERS
I've been a Leader since early 2014, heading up the European Aristocrats Project. I broke the project down into five sub-projects due to their size. In addition to overseeing the overall master EuroAristo project, I also am leader of the British Isles Royals & Aristocrats 742-1499 sub-project as well as the Nantucket (Massachusetts) project.
MAGNA_CARTA
Closely tied to the EuroAristo project, since everyone within the Magna Carta project is also within the European Aristocrats Project.
MAYFLOWER
John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley are my 9th great-grandparents.
NANTUCKET
Heading up the project tracking the founding fathers and their descendants. My lines trace back to the families of Barnard, Coleman, Gardner, Macy, Starbuck, etc.
NEW_NETHERLAND
PGM
I have numerous ancestors that immigrated to America and fall within this category, including ancestors that arrived on the Mayflower (Tilley and Howland).
PRE-1500
As a leader of the European Aristocrats Project as well as the British Isles 742-1499 sub-project, most of my time is spent in the pre-1500 period.
PURITAN_GREAT_MIGRATION
I have numerous ancestors that immigrated to America during this timeframe, including Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley.
SCOTTISH_CLANS
My mother's lines trace back to the Anderson, Crerar, Dow and MacGlashan families of Perthshire, Scotland. They immigrated to Ontario, Canada in the 1800s. They're all brick walls in Scotland, so hoping to use DNA to help locate their ancestors.
SNELL
My Snell line traces back to Heinrich Schnell, who immigrated from Germany/Switzerland to Orangeburgh, SC in 1735. His grandson, Christian/Christopher Snell was a Patriot in the Revolutionary War. Chris' father Barnett/Barnard Snell and half-brothers (and brothers-in-law) were Loyalists. The Loyalist contingent was evacuated to Nova Scotia , eventually returning to the U.S. into Maryland and on to Ohio. Christian moved to Georgia and descendants to Alabama.

Darlene,

Forgot to mention that my grandmother was Elizabeth Isabell Singleton Athey, and that the immigrant George Athey of Galway, Ireland is also my ancestor.

Again, thank you, Marian Sharp

Darlene,

My sister's daughter and grandchildren, her son's daughter and grandchildren, several of my cousins, including 1st cousin and his daughter and grandchildren have all had dna testings on 23andme and on Myheritage, although none of these people have wanted to work on Wikitree. Should I put something else? Let me know if I can't claim that. Thanks for your help.

"Darlene and Joe are 26th cousins

Darlene (Athey) Athey-Hill and Joe Lastowski are both descendants of Hendrik (Von Limburg) Limburg. " Hello very distant cousin, has there or is been any work to connect the Grenier lines? I am a Grenier descendant as well as Guillaume De Lespinay Couillard. I am extremely interested in seeing a complete Grenier line created. One other thing, why can't a project manager edit there project? I to was trying to find Grenier in your list of aristocrats.

One more question. Why doesn't Grenier show up in the Peerage lists that are out there. I have come across one person, but you would think there would be more. Her name was Lady Elan Grenier I believe.

Hi, Darlene. I'm looking for Richard Merton the first husband of Maud, Argentine-14. Think it's likely Merton-19. She would have been the second wife who was with child at his death. Check out Ivo FitzWarin at History of Parliament. Sadly Richard Merton's profile hasn't been created there yet. C

Ms Darlene.. I would like to join the European Aristocrats group/program. I emailed a former group manager but she told me to contact you as she was no longer a manager.

I am a descendant of several Kings and Queens of that era and can use some more information. Here is the information I had originally posted with my request to join.

I am the 17th great grandaughter of Herzogin, Maddalena Zu Bayern-Lanshut ( I suppose that's the way to write it), I got the information from my husband's family tree. Yes we do connect somewhere during that era.

This link to my ancestry is via my paternal grandmother.

I would appreciate being included in this "group" so I can find more information.

Sincerely, Jolyn Rebecca Snider
