My interest in genealogy started after taking an autosomal DNA test and finding over a thousand living cousins. I would love to see how I'm connected to these distant cousins. Most of my research is through Ancestry.com, so my sources are mostly from their sources.
My family has always said my brother and I are the last Burgess boys in the family line. With the combination of DNA testing and genealogy research, I've found many more Burgess cousins. Finding these cousins is a huge find. Now, I'm looking to solve some other history mysteries. Hopefully working with others we can uncover connections.
