My great-great-grandmother Emily Burdalow / Bordeleau was 100% French-American. Her ancestors migrated in the 1700s from Québec to the areas in Indiana and Illinois around Vincennes.
Karen Tobo's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Karen or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Karen (Lowe) Tobo:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup U5a1a2b, FTDNA kit #248358
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Karen:

Thanks Karen as I am sure I will need a lot of help as I do not understand these things on here. I have quite a lot on my fathers side of Shubert in a notebook.Also on my Mother’s side of Burks,all the way back to the civil war.My sister did a lot and a cousin was deep into genealogy so it is interesting.Nettie
Thanks for your comment on the page for Nelson Kimmel (Kimmel-1178). I am unsure if he is the same person as the one you refer to. His information was given in a family tree given to me by a cousin, and only as a spouse of Nettie Salzman. I have updated the privacy setting for Nelson to "Open" so if you feel like this is the same person, feel free to make the change. Please include any/all sources you come across. If I find anything, I'll do the same.
following up on Bea's call: I am not specialized in Dutch Antilles genealogy, but I know of some online resources: WieWasWie and geneaknowhow.net.
Give me some research cases and I will see if there is something to be found.
I'm sure we have and I know there are some great sources for the early Caribbeans available online as well.
But I don't know anyone special (a Carribean specialist ) though, we have so many wonderful members who probably could help you with this, so I think if you are looking for a specific person (profile) or sources it's probably easier to start a G2G and add the tags of NNS, Dutch Roots, South African Roots,Cape of Good Hope etc. and I'm sure they all will love to help.
Aah read it again, you are looking for the a bit younger people eeh, well not sure but I think G2G and probably the same or similar tags (including Caribbean) would be the most successful place for them also..
Hope it helps and greets from the Netherlands,
ps: I'll ask around if maybe someone is a bit specialized and able to help for you ;)
Hello. Don't know if I had replied to your inquiry on the Puerto Rico project. I have already done some research going back several generations on a family branch that goes to Puerto Rico, but haven't yet had a chance to add it to my wikitree. I expect to do so in the near future and will probably consult the project pages more closely when I do.
