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:
Karen, somewhere you asked me what do i think of your mother's trail? I cannot find the message you sent me because it could be on any one of 5 different boards. Anyway, it's interesting, your mom is my 18th cousin twice removed! Via Nicholas (Harrington) Harington MP as the MRCA. So I am your cousin twice over.
I still hope to find people who are DNA matches that descend from these older trails.
I found my mom's mom recently. Her mom descends from Edward 1st, and the Bohun and Bigod families. So I now have three trails that connect me to the Plantagenets. And my cousin Vicky, whom I reconnected with last summer after 50 years of absence, is telling me of her trail being yet another!
