I have been researching for over 25+ years. Other than a paternal Irish line that immigrated to Massachusetts in the mid 19th century, most of my family's roots on both sides lead back to 17th century coastal Massachusetts, with significant history in Nantucket, and back primarily to the British Isles from there. I enjoy collaborating and am enjoying Wikitree and the community. I have recently DNA tested confirming primary lineage to the British Isles and Western Europe, with only minor influences across Scandanavia/Finland and Southern Europe.
