I'm a descendent of Edmund Lewis through his son, Thomas. I have DNA testing (y67 and Family Finder) through Family Tree.

I also have a group page on Facebook for this line. You can contact me at thomas.lewissr@yahoo.com

Connie Byers who commented below is my cousin (confirmed) and would also be a descendent of Edmund.

Hi Michael: Don't know if you are related to us or not. Our Lewes comes from Barnstable Massachusetts. I cannot see your tree. I just wanted to pass along our possible connection. This link


that you can check this Edward from 1661. Then, you may be my relative. But not until you check it out. Then maybe, just maybe you can be my relative. Best wishes. Connie Byers

I see you added the DNA tag to your profile. Here are a few links & tips to help you along in the journey of WikiTree and DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘Private w/ Public Biography & Family Tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

Here's a great YouTube video with all sorts of questions answered Getting Started with DNA.
