I have been doing research on my family since 1993. I exchanged info with many cousins before the internet was a thing. I am interested in every surname in my family as well as my husband's family.

I am really into dna matching and love to encourage people and explain how to upload to or as they are free resources currently offering chromosomal info when does NOT.

I had a website on rootsweb for many years before they merged with and took everything down called Hardcastle Kerr Kinfolks. So now I am trying to put things on

You can find me on as KellyK415 [1],,,, and as Kelly K [2].

I work on my husband's (and children's) family tree almost as much as my own. It can also be found in the same tree My Hardcastle Kerr Kinfolks on my ancestry account KellyK415 [3]

Hi Kelly,

The reason I have so many DNA tests listed is that so many of my family members have tested, cousins, aunts, etc

And yes I added their DNA information to their profiles which I manage. That makes it appear automatically on mine Kitty
