My primary focus is merging and repairing/cleaning up pre-1500 profiles, which tend to be related to the European Aristocrats project.
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.
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.
I use this tool, along with GenomeMate Pro, to keep track of mapping chromosomes.
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.
Both of my parents have Irish ancestry. My DNA shows me to be about 31% Irish.
My Kirklands trace back to Caleb Kirkland of Alabama, and his ancestors that trace to Richard Kirkland of Anne Arundel, Maryland & Fairfax, Virginia.
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.
Closely tied to the EuroAristo project, since everyone within the Magna Carta project is also within the European Aristocrats Project.
John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley are my 9th great-grandparents.
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.
I have numerous ancestors that immigrated to America and fall within this category, including ancestors that arrived on the Mayflower (Tilley and Howland).
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.
I have numerous ancestors that immigrated to America during this timeframe, including Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley.
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.
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.

Hi Darlene, I still can not merge Geoffrey the Marshall of Venoix. I tried a few different methods.

Just seen that you proposed a merge of the two Matildas. I'd best detach and let the merge go through.

Hi. Could you have a look at [[Chaundos-2 |Robert Chaundos}, please? Visitation of Gloucestershire has his wife as Phillip daughter of Sir Guye de Bryan. We have Matilda de Acton (whom I've adopted) and would like to change to Phillip especially as Robert has a daughter-in-law called Matilda de Acton. Do you have a source for this? Visitation further gives Robert's father as Walter Lord of Sowenthorpe.

Hi Darlene,

We are 8th cousins once removed through John Worth. Do you need any help on the Nantuckert project?

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

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! Thanks for the merge suggestion. I don't see a good source on either profile. You wouldn't happen to know if it should be Serrill or Serrell, would you?
