Flags and DNA

Ethnic percentages are not the same at Ancestry and 23 and me, interesting though. What do you believe?

Since I have taken both Ancestry and 23 and me DNA tests, and the Ancestry tests changed, I don't know what I am, but I am having fun with flags. That is why there are more than one percentage for a flag.

It would be nice to have Anglo-Saxon stickers. I think my German is from early settlers of Britain. I have their DNA rather than what they are counting as British. genetic map of Britain

It would be interesting to study the DNA of the PGM descendants! Where were the origins?

New Ancestry: Eastern Europe and Russia 54% Germanic Europe 32% Baltic States 5% England, Wales & Northwestern Europe 5% Sweden 4%

23 and me (9/16/2018) Eastern European 41.6% (Poland 3/5 ,Ukraine 2/5 ,Slovakia 2/5 ,Hungary 2/5 ,Russia 2/5 ,Czech Republic 1/5) British & Irish 25.9% (United Kingdom) French & German 14.6% Balkan 1.1% (Romania) Scandinavian 1.0% Broadly Northwestern European 10.1% Broadly Southern European 3.4% Broadly European 2.3%

We have a confusing mix of time periods as well as geographic areas. (My sister's percentages were not the same, she got all the Irish as a major percentage while I had none.) Do I count my sister's percentages even though she got different DNA percentages, we still show up as sisters with the same ancestry. I am claiming a small percent Irish, because the DNA did come out that we were sisters. And there were the Mulloys and Gilpatricks (see below).

The overwhelming majority of my father's ancestors came from England. Some that did not: Peter Tallman (bef. 1623 - 1708) Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany Ami Decotay (1726 - 1756) Genève, Switzerland Nicholas "The Swede" Alverson? (1620 - 1700) probably of Sweden Malcolm Downing (1620 - 1683) Scotland Dennis (Malloy) Mulloy (1750 - 1821) Ireland Thomas Gilpatrick (abt. 1720 - 1792) Ireland

Were the Leiden, Netherlands ancestors pilgrims from England? Phillippe (De Lannoy) Delano (bef. 1602 - 1681) Leiden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands Constant Southworth (abt. 1615 - 1679) Leiden, Zuid-Holland Province, Netherlands Moses (Simonson) Simmons (abt. 1604 - abt. 1691) Leiden, Netherlands Abigail (Baillou) Dunham (1600 - 1669) Leiden, Zuid-Holland Netherlands Nathaniel Morton (1613 - 1685) Leiden, South Holland, Netherlands Lydia Fenton (Cooper) Morton (abt. 1615 - 1673) Leyden, Holland Sarah (Morton) Bonham (1618 - 1691) Leyden, South Holland, Netherlands

My mother's parents came from the Western part of Ukraine near Poland.

Father's Family

Somers, Ct. and Portsmouth, RI. have several generations of ancestors including intermarriage between third cousins.

I have been doing genealogy since the 1990s. I started when I found books my father had on two of his family lines. I found out that all four of his grandparents had published lines. A lot of research was in libraries and at the Family History Center nearby, ordering microfiche. I travelled to the towns where his ancestors spent several generations and visited some of the cemeteries.

My father's family is all New England, except for one line that made it out to Ohio. A lot of the work on genealogy had been done in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Many of the ancestral lines go back to the Great Migration. When I got online I found that if someone has been doing extensive New England work we can usually find a common ancestor or two ten generations back.

The Hall Family goes back to the 1630s in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Many of the family became Quakers. I haven't looked for them in Quaker records though. Some of the tombstones have Quaker dates and some are in the Friend's cemetery.

Mother's Family

I have only done limited work on my mother's lines, marriage and death certificates, cemetery. Her parents came over from the Ukraine around 1910 and married here in Rochester, NY. I don't speak or read Ukrainian or any other language any information would be in. So far I have found one possible cousin, with a shared surname of my great grandparents. My tree does not go back far enough for matching. My great grandparents did not come over and I only know their names from the marriage certificate.

On 26 Jan 2018 at 14:31 GMT Greg Lavoie wrote: 19th century Greek Catholic records were usually kept in Latin and in a tabular format, which makes them relatively easy to read. You can find very helpful information detailing this, as well as some example records, over at If you are unlucky, they will be in Ukrainian instead, though if you are patient you may be able to transliterate the material (made much easier by the tabular format). It's possible that they have translation services but I'm not aware of them.


  • Entered by Mary Hall at registration.
  • I have birth certificate, marriage certificate, passport, Social Security card,...
  • I have a letter from my grandfather to my father listing the Hall line all the way back to the 1600s in two lines. It didn't have the third line I found later.

Hi, Sue! I was wondering about your source for the parents of Pomeroy-1867 (Henry Pomeroy) as Pomeroy-1870 (Phineas Pomeroy) and Clark-43328 (Susanna (Clark) Pomeroy). There doesn't seem to be a source on his profile for it! Thank you for finding his parents (?), though.

About keeping the WatchList down: I got harsh about it awhile back. I hit the warning @5,000 after someone accidentally added me to the Trusted List not of just one profile, but his whole WatchList by mistake. Now, I regularly prune it down to keep it under 300. It does take effort!
