I am interested in communicating with
anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests.
My family tree is at <https://www.ancestry.co.uk>.
I have been researching since 2002/3. I took a family history course to get started, and have since done several other courses for which I have certificates. I belong to two family history groups, one of which I help run, someone else does the admin. and I do the talks (a new topic each month). I have been able to help other people with their problems in these groups. I have managed to take two lines of my tree back to the 1500s but on another tree I can't get beyond 1795, I suspect they are non-conformists and the records don't exist. I have a mixed background, I am mostly English with one third Irish. The English elements are from the counties of Essex, Suffolk, Hampshire and Wiltshire. The Irish are primarily in Roscommon and Mayo and Sligo. I probably do some research everyday.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Maureen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Maureen:
