I have always had an interest in my heritage, and wish that I would have acted on it long ago, before my parents (Burnell and Frieda (Morris) Davis, aunts, uncles, etc. had passed. It would really be nice to collaborate with them, sharing some of the information I have found, and asking them for guidance in other areas. I was raised in Southern Illinois, worked in St Louis, MO for 15 years, and then at SIUe for another 26 years, prior to retiring in 2011. I'm married to Gerald Ahrens, have two daughters, Monica and Krista, and five grandchildren.
I have gotten a lot of information on my dad's side, including Isaac Harris through a website: http://www.isaac-harris-fam.us/. I have also found many graves through findagrave.com, and have found some information at familysearch.org. There is a lot more to find, I'm sure.
I have about 100 people who are listed as unconnected. Some have as many as 30 connections. Would appreciate help fixing this
Beverly Ahrens's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Beverly or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Beverly:
Hi Beverly, I just did a GEDmatch compare and it looks like we are cousins. Said our MCSA is about 5.1 generations back. I wanted to ask you how confident you are in your 4th great grandmother’s dad being Benjamin as I believe that would make him a brother to my 5 great grandfather Jesse Adams. I ask because I show no other DNA matches to what’s showing as their father a Benjamin Adams Sr.
Hit a brick wall with Reuben's grandfather Reuben. Died in Civil War in southern Missouri. Have not been able to go back any further. If you have any ideas on how to help it would be appreciated. Erictheawful519@yahoo.com
