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!
