I am interested in communicating with
anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests.
Here is my family tree.Ancestors
I lead the US Presidents Project, so let me know if you have interests in Presidential or Vice Presidential lineages!
I was born and raised in California. My parents both came from Ohio, my father's family brought him to California when he was 3 and my mother moved to California as a young career woman during World War II.
My interest in genealogy started with some family dead ends and lots of rumors. Most of the rumors were great leads, but untrue. And the dead end is in the Becker family (my mother's family). We can go back to her great grandfather John J. Becker.... he was killed in an accident when his son, John Frederick (her grandfather) was 2 and the mother, Mary, either died shortly before or after along with another son, George. I found a beautiful grave marker with all the names and dates. None of this information was ever passed along in the family, so we have no idea where John Frederick grew up, nor where his parents came from, etc....my original dead end is still the one have not been able to break through. I hope with my work in Wikitree, I will eventually find my answers.
I currently live east of Sacramento in rural "Gold Rush" California. Anyone seeking help with relatives in that area, let me know.
Then there are my Patriots...Isaac Lee is my NSDAR Patriot Ancestor. My next challenges are proving my connections to:
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Robin or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup V2b, FTDNA kit #604374, MitoYDNA ID T11241[compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Robin:
