Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy. My family tree is at <>.
The CORDNER family is my main brick wall. The church records are unavailable, so I haven't been able to track down siblings or ancestors. The older members of the family may have come to Ireland from Scotland, most of the family may have emigrated, via Canada in one case, to the USA. William Bell (Thompson) Cordner 19 Sep 1840 - 9 May 1881, born in Armagh, married Eliza Caldwell Sandys 21 Sep 1860. His father was William Cordner died c. Feb 1861.

I have a report for anyone interested in seeing if they can help. Paternal haplogroup R-Ui52, Y-Chromosome available.

The BUSBY family is another problem. The last one I'm pretty sure of is Thomas Busby 1823-1896, born in Marton, Warwickshire. His father; John Busby c. 1769-1828. Story is they came from Wales, have Viking DNA too. - Thank

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your message. I understand the problems with Irish Ancestry, some of mine are an absolute nightmare trying to find information on them, it is like they have started a game of hide and seek about 100 years before I was born, and they have a very good hiding place, sooner or later they will show up, hopefully.

I would suggest posting a request for help in our G2G Forum, our members can be very helpful in finding missing information.

I hope you are successful, and anytime you need any help, please let us know

Take care Karen

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your suggestion about the G2G Forum, I will have to look up how to use it. My next question is about DNA. To have both paternal and maternal haplogroups my brother had two DNA tests done to increase our chances of connecting with other Cordner descendants. How do I enter his DNA results? He is in his 80's and leaves me to manage our trees. Many thanks Wendy

Hi Wendy,

Unfortunately members are only allowed to add DNA for family members who are deceased, due to new privacy laws that came out in 2018, so he would need to join, then add his DNA, if you have created a profile for him, then they would need to be merged together.

I hope this helps, any problems, please let us know

Take care Karen

Hi W

One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that others found very helpful. I hope that you will too.

Thanks for upgrading, W. You are all set to collaborate with our members now. I hope you discover as much about your family as I have about mine over the last several years.

Check out the New Member How-to pages for some quick tips on working with both the Wiki pages and our other members. There is some great information in those pages.

Thank you for adding your DNA Test to your profile on WikiTree. Getting Started with DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

DNA at WikiTree provides a visual way for you to find others who have tested and have the potential of having common ancestors. To get the best results, you need to start with yourself and add sourced profiles for your ancestors until you can connect to existing profiles in WikiTree. 24 hours later, your test will have populated on the profiles of your ancestors and their descendants, where others with potential matches may also appear. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches which relate to the particular branches you are researching.

If you have questions about how WikiTree works, let me know. You can use the "reply" link under this comment or click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
