Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same ancestors. Here is my family tree. Ancestors ancestors
I'm particularly interested in finding my ancestors currently hidden behind several brickwalls. Towards that end, I've convinced several cousins to have their DNA tested with some surprising results. I'd recommend to everyone using DNA results in their research to have first and second cousins also tested. If you have siblings (which I do not) then of course, you need to include them in your testing. I've created a database of the ancestors of some of my matches and so have broken through one of my major brickwalls. This database is currently slightly over 48,900 entries.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Marie or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Marie (Doughty) Svedahl: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H1c15, FTDNA kit #412008
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Marie:

Marie, I noted a few years ago that my maternal grandfather shares your mtDNA line, as you are my late mother's eighth cousin. Now I see my second cousin from this line was assigned haplogroup H1c at 23andMe. That's such a great confirmation!

Hello Marie it seems we are related. My grandmother comes from Sogndal and is originally a Hansen (Her father was Danish) but her mother (My great Grandmother) is a Svedal. Perhaps we could talk and trace back our ancestors as this is really interesting. Hope we can help each other trace back our lines.

Hi Cameron, mom asked me to reply to you as I am the one who is actually related to you 😀 Will pm you.
Well it seems I always have questions, but I see Henry died in 1839 and have found information suggesting he died in 1851. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Simple answer, Cathy - two different men named "Henry Harman" -

Harman-1268 = Henry L. Harman [1788-1839]

Harman-1270 = Henry (John Henry) Harman [1795-1852]

Original Henry had more than two grandsons named after him, and Esther had namesakes among the grandchildren, too. A very common practice up until a hundred years ago. Heavens! Sixty years ago when I was having children I used family names, not as first names but as middle names. Felt like I was keeping the memory of that person alive by naming a baby after them. But that was my reasoning, don't know what was behind the earlier custom.

Are their documents that prove Mary Woodrow Harman is the daughter of John Woodrow and Anna Gill?

Hi !

Guillaume Belisle - Andre Belisle (abt. 1825 - aft. 1850) :

I have found and create a profile for André Germain dit Bélisle, born 12 Dec 1821

I don't know if they can be the same person

Marie, you are my mother's eighth cousin, and - even better! - you are in my maternal grandfather's direct maternal line. I am so pleased to know he probably shares your mtDNA haplogroup. Thank you so much for testing and adding your info to WikiTree!
