My father was born in east Tennessee, and many of my ancestors lived in the colonial South. All of my ancestors immigrated to the US before 1800 from England, Germany, France, Scotland, and Ireland.
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, Mitosearch E8X9W, FTDNA kit #248358
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Karen:
Per your comment, I don't really get all the ins and out of this program when someone else has charge of your family.
It would have been easier for me to follow the corrections if you had just disconnected Levi Kennedy from the first Lanie instead of redoing Levi's profile as Richmond. I've recreated a profile for Levi Kennedy and removed his sources from his original profile, which is now Richmond Kennedy. I hope that makes sense!
thank you Karen for adding to my biological mother' s side of the family. I really do not very much about them so any help you can give me in that area is appreciated. When my father was killed his sister adopted me so I was never with my biological mother.
I am working on translating the names of native Japanese people whose profiles I created from romaji to kanji, while leaving the romaji in the Nicknames and Other Last Names fields. I was wondering if you would help me.
Thank you for your welcome note. Thus far getting started is a bit confusing, but I am sure it will work itself out. Actually I am excited to get involved and appreciate some of the detail to fulfill the mission of accuracy.
I want to thank you for welcoming me into WikiTree. I got your email and am glad to learn of the tour and also that it is offered in manageable bites that hopefully eliminate information overload. I myself have never taken on my family tree as a project but am looking forward to seeing where it goes.
Ok, I am off to start the tour. You all have a great time.
