I am a native Californian. I got into genealogy 30 years ago and have many hours of experience.

Previously an accountant, systems analyst, firefighter and fire inspector, I am now retired. I have helped over 20 people find birth families or break through brick walls. I have now turned that into a business.

If you are interested in hiring me or learning more, please feel free to contact me.

  • Lance Martin: AncestryDNA Paternal Lineage (discontinued) 33 markers, haplogroup R1b1b1, Ancestry member RUGGERSF + Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test, haplogroup R-M335
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Lance Martin: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup K2b1, FTDNA kit #397766
  • Evelyn Sullivan Find Relationship : Mitochondrial DNA Test, haplogroup K2b1a
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Lance:

Hello Lance,

I have added siblings of Sophia Borland far, just the ones descended from John Wilson and Mary Brooks. I also added a little to the Mary Brooks bio.

There are seven children more descended from John Wilson and Lydia Dell in addition to Mary. I can't remember now why I added Mary Wilson last December. Lydia Dell is my 2xGG but not from John Wilson - rather from her first husband Mark Booth.

Lance has been a great help with verifying my ancestry through DNA and things that I am not able to do myself. He is a great asset to Wikitree and to anyone who needs his help!

We've put together a survey for you to fill out to check in with you, it will only take a moment as there are only a few questions. Filling out the survey lets us know you are still interested in coordinating your study and provides an opportunity for you to share any suggestions you may have for the project.

If you have decided to step away from your study, please reply to this comment to that effect.
