DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Ian or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Ian Hunter: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 37 markers, haplogroup G-M201, FTDNA kit #642245
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Ian Hunter: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J, FTDNA kit #642245
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Ian:

Hi Ian. Some profiles have a person born in 'Galway', Ireland or Galway, County Galway, Ireland.
How are the two different categories used?
Also, sometimes wikitree is a bit clunky, when opening up a box/field to begin typing Galway or County Galway as a category, sometimes it comes up with and sometimes with .
Sometimes the option for .

Hi Ian.

I saw your note to Jamie regarding access to the database dumps. Great stuff! I hope we hear more from you someday soon.

Hi Ian,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.

  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some feedback on the use of google group and discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hello again Ian.

While adding information to you branch of Acheson family I found the link to the document 'ACHESON of Graddum, .........'. I found this document to be very interesting. My GG-grandmother Jane Acheson married in the Church of Ireland at Kildrumferton in 1850. I haven't found any clear link between the families but there were a lot of Acheson living in close proximity. Are you still in contact with author of the 'ACHESON.....' document? I would like to contact him and see if he can make any sense of the names I have identified. Cheers, Steve

Hi Steve,

I am in contact with a few people who shared DNA connections over the Acheson line. I may have just found this document online https://achesonfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2014/10/23/the-achesons-of-graddum-rockfield-and-tippecanoe/ rather than through a contact

Hello Ian,

As mentioned before I've been contacted by a descendant of a different Acheson family Georgina Boyd (Lockhart-4883). She contacted me to see if my branch of Acheson families was connected with hers. I've just noticed that she has taken an Autosomal DNA test and registered in Wikitree. I don't how the DNA comparisons work but it might be worthwhile to contact her and compare DNA tests. Steve.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the heads up. Things have been busy here but I'll try to see if she comes up in my match list, an initial browse says no, but I haven't looked deeper yet

Hello Ian,

My attention has been brought back to the possible connections between Acheson families in the Ulster Province. I've been prompted by a query regarding Acheson family in Co. Antrim. I've made a new Wikitree page to collect information. https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Acheson_Name_Study_-1&public=1

Hello Ian,

You should be able to bring them back out of archive. Click the green "Archived comments" button at the bottom of the profile, then use the "Un-archive" link on the comment to bring it back to the profile page. I am not sure why WikiTree-1 would have done any archiving. It may have been a glitch with the roll out of the new comments system-we apologize for that.

Thanks Abby, I unarchived then on the page, just wanted to bring it to attention as it was unannounced

Hi Ian,

I'd like to explore a possible family connection via Jane Jones (nee Acheson, 1827-1899). I'll send more detail via private message.

Kind regards, Steve Thomas.

Hi Ian,

The Ireland Project (previously the Irish Roots Project) has now changed its structure into Teams. We require everyone with the Ireland Badge to be a member of at least one Team or Sub-Team and our google group. See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Ireland for details. The Teams are :-

1. Categories Team
2. Counties Team
3. Managed Profiles Team
4. Membership Team
5. Profile Improvement Team
6. Topics Team
7. Diaspora

? Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

HI Ian,

I wish there was a way to reply to your comment so I can still see your comment as a thread like gmail back and forth. Anyway, I agree on all accounts - I changed my spelling of Attwood based on 1851 Census and also his birth year on mine to 1853 based on same. Lets merge 619 and 2494. How do we do that as that choice does not exist on my gedmatch. Thanks Ian Jamie

re Thomas Pollock. Do you think it's too soon to merge?
