DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with M or other M's relatives. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Justin Russ Find Relationship : Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup J1B2, FTDNA kit #N66807, MitoYDNA ID T13336 [compare]
  • M Cole: Mitochondrial DNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J1B
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with M:

Hi Sharon, I’m not sure I understand. Can you explain?
posted by M Cole
just some information on the relationships of Snows, Shaws, Aldens and others. Joseph Snow 1664-1753 m. Hopestill Alden 1671-1753, two of children were James Snow 1693-1749 m. Ruth Shaw, his brother my ancestor Isaac Snow 1700-1737 m. Hannah Shaw 1704-1762

I think this orphaned profile is PGM eligible though not in Anderson Luke Potter. He was made Freeman in Concord 13 Mar 1638/39 so that places him in New England by 1638. (

There has been activity on the profile during the latter part of 2020 so unless it was a very recent orphan, I'm surprised it wasn't adopted.

Thanks. He’s in the GM Directory. I added the PGM project box, a leader will add the project account in a few days

Hi M,

Thanks for adding the Anderson Directory info to Edward Clark’s profile. However I think the third entry might be for a different Edward. This one showed up in Portsmouth in 1657. I suppose he could have gone from his original place to Portsmouth though... I will check out the sources. I have seen the GDMNH one before and it goes along with the Torrey info

I added it because it was the same GDMNH page, and if they are different it might be helpful to distinguish the two.
posted by M Cole
Excellent point M. I just didn’t want people to get more confused. :)

Thank you.

posted by S (Hill) Willson
I am confused. I see and understand you have rejected a proposed merger of [Fits-Raandolph 42] and [Randolphs 1621]. I am naive - but I don't see the reason for the rejection.

Also, in the table below about matches it doesn't show any matches at all. Jim Vincent

posted by Jim Vincent
Jim, I don’t see the table you’re referring recollection is that it was an unmerged match that I removed so I could then propose an actual merge.
posted by M Cole
Sorry – it is early in the morning and I must be mistaken. I can’t find the e-mail that said the merger was rejected by you.

And I see I mistyped the names – and in fact I can’t even find the people I cited. I must have been dreaming. And I am a bad typist. Jim Vincent

posted by Jim Vincent
Jim: I found the match you were talking about. I did reject it. One was for a PGM profile, the other was for a Guest Member. But that information wouldn't have shown up in the email.

Thank you for your efforts with Holly-953. It was my mistake to even create this non-person. I just posted as complete an explanation as I can onto her page (Holly-953)

Thank you again, and I apologize again.

Thanks for fixing all those ref tags this weekend.

You added PPP to Unknown-471285 so I'm getting complaints that it's not set up correctly. I've never found a solution to this, other than to attempt removal of PPP in those cases where the project disowns it, or once when a project was willing to say how it should be set up.


posted by Tim Prince
Hi Tim, I didn’t add PPP to the profile. I suggest that you post a comment on that profile explaining the specific complaint. It seems to be set up correctly.

Congrats on the Super Star Badge!

Thanks for finding the merge, it was from a profile that I adopted. You may find more from that family lol
Thanks for all the cleanup you've recently been doing due to duplicates created by others and parental mis attachments by others. I'm scanning the PGM feed and you're doing a lot to help. Thank you!

Thank you M Cole for directing me to my mistake in the last name for the brothers, from French to Underwood.

Keep pruning!


James Appleby (Appleby-206) was created in April 2012, not very recent!! Although I have been going through my watchlist and adding missing bios.

The later James, who I checked out when I edited this James, has a wife in New Jersey, who probably needs detachment.

I found births for several more Appleby children, but those records, don't necessarily link to James and Dorcas. I think the later ones, might appear in his will, which I cannot find any access to.

Hi M, I have updated the settings for Martha and Daniel Conant for you. Let me know if there are any others. Thanks! Virginia

Hi M,

Thanks for pointing out the problems with the profile of Marjorie Robinson-28813. I am attempting to contact those who claim to be her direct descendants in an effort to elicit evidence proving her dob, parents, etc. Are you connected to these Robinson's? As to your statement, "Let me know if there are any objections to disconnecting," the answer is emphatically YES, I OBJECT to any disconnections without an exhaustive investigation and a reconnection to new parents with evidence provided. To do otherwise relegates the profile to a state of limbo where they may never be seen again. The solution is not to disconnect them but to find evidence supporting who their parents are. ~Skip

Thanks for your message about Edson-849 - please go ahead.

Hi I think the date of death on here is actually from Susanna Breck wife of JOHN Breck, not Edward. Susanna is mentioned in Edward's probate file, and she later remarried to Daniel Loring.

You have better information than I. I have deleted myself as profile manager. She is looking for a new caretaker...
