Followed Tags
Linda is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I am particularly interested in tracking the descendants who have taken DNA tests of John Allan b. 1782 in Shettleston, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland and died in Parkhead, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland. He married Agnes Allan (same surname) in 1803. Two Allan males on this line have taken a Y-chromosome test and are I-M253. Lots have taken atDNA tests. Please connect with us!
Goes back to County Cork, Ireland in the 1700s and connects to the Lloyd of Lossett Pedigree p. 266 on Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland. That takes the line back to the Rev. Humphrey Lloyd b. in Wales in 1652 who came to New Ross, Co Wexford, Ireland in 1680-1683. There is a Y-chromosome match between descendants of his two sons, Rev. Richard Lloyd b. 1699 and Rev. Baratholomew Lloyd b. 1707.
Goes back to Angus (Forfarshire), Scotland
Goes back to northern Essex and sourthern Suffolk, England in the 1500s. Confirmed by Y-chromosome matches back to Ralph b. 1791 in Coggeshall, Essex.
Looking for Revie in Scotland or Ireland. Variants include Reevie, Reavy and perhaps McIlrevie.
Looking for Stewarts in Glasgow, Scotland prior to 1850.
DNA Tested
Linda Reid's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Linda or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Linda (Brown) Reid: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H13a1a1, FTDNA kit #N54026
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Linda:

Thanks Linda for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches dates of profile, avoid abbreviations. Add sources with citations & links for the sources to support the data. From wiki ID go to Research to find sources

The Scotland Project would be of interest. Adding the tag  SCOTLAND will provide updates about the project.

Explore Projects list to find one that fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals & tasks of the project join if it fits

Hi Linda,

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.

Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas:

The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.

This page describes sources and how to enter sources and is a favorite, Jilaine’s Dream Sources Help Page.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!
