I'm particularly interested in exploring and confirming my links to the Lees of Virginia back to England, as well as finding out more about my Fochtman ancestors in Germany.
Other (mis?)spellings of Fochtman I've seen on documents include Fouchtman, Fouchman, and Foughtman. Perhaps the spelling variations have led to the difficulty in finding information. Maybe Fochtman is actually the derivative of another German spelling.
My research has also shown connections to various lines of English nobility, including Charles Brandon, but I would like to have more concrete confirmations.

- In the research I've done I've run across folks who've been accused of murder, executed for political beliefs, deserted the military, and fought on the wrong side of the civil war. I love finding out stories about all the weirdos, renegades, and criminals I'm related to.
- I'm really fascinated by everything that DNA has to tell us. Without it, I would never have been tipped off to having English and Welsh ancestry, which is where most of my lineage actually comes from.
- My ancestral DNA and the research I've done shows that the majority of my ancestors came from England, Wales, Scotland, Western Europe (Germany, for certain), and Norway (and other Scandinavian countries like Sweden).
- I'm fairly certain about my connections to English aristocracy and nobility but would love to have greater confirmation and more information.
- My mother's surname is Fochtman. My family names on her side include Hanshew, Lee, Shook, among others, and I'm interested in researching those.
- I have found little information regarding my German ancestors and would love to find out more.
- My maternal grandmother's maiden name.
- My father's biological father's last name was Jolley and I know nothing about that side of the family and would want to learn more.
- One of the most common surnames imaginable, I suppose, but the surname of my paternal great-grandmother nonetheless.
- I know that I am related to Robert E. Lee (3rd cousin 5x removed), and would love to learn more about my lineage with this surname.
- Via the Relationship Finder tool I discovered that I'm a direct descendant of 7 of the signers of the Magna Carta: Hugh (Bigod) le Bigod (24th Great-Grandfather), Gilbert (Clare) de Clare (24th GGF), John (Lacy) de Lacy Knt (24th GGF), Henry (Bohun) de Bohun (25th GGF), Robert FitzWalter (26th GGF), William (Huntingfield) de Huntingfield (26th GGF), and Saher (Saier) (Quincy) de Quincey (26th GGF).
- My paternal grandmother's maiden surname was Moore, which is another field of interest as both of my grandmothers died before I was born.
- My DNA shows that I have Norwegian ancestry, but my research has yet to show a single ancestor from that country. I've found folks that hailed from Sweden (which I oddly show no DNA from), but none from Norway. I would like to be able to find them!
- My DNA and ancestry research shows that I have ancestors that came from Scotland and I'd like to know more.
- From the research I've done I've discovered that my family on both my mother & father's side have been in the United States since at least the 1600's, and most of them seem to have originally arrived in the Southern US.
- My ancestral DNA and the research I've done shows that the majority of my ancestors came from England, Wales, Scotland, Western Europe (Germany, for certain), and Norway (and other Scandinavian countries like Sweden)
- I've been fascinated with the various witch trials ever since I was a child, and have always been curious if any of my ancestors were ever accused of practicing it.
