I am interested in communicating with
anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests.
My family tree is at <https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/118419848/family?cfpid=342045387504>.
My tree on Ancestry.com is not a shining example. For the most part, the lineages are correct, to the best of my knowledge (post-1600) although I sometimes test my hypothesis out on Ancestry. I do not warrant the sources attached, but am happy to share whatever I really have.
My mother's maternal line and my father's paternal were mostly great migration people - Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York - but I come from the ones that just couldn't be happy and went to Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Wyoming, Idaho or a route very similar. Then I have a mix of European Immigrants that came later but ended up in the same place even if for different reasons.
If we crossed paths along the way I would love to connect.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Colleen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Colleen:
