I am a Generation Veneration Geek. Researching my family tree started as a hobby, now; it is an obsession. I dedicate my research to the memories of our ancestors, who flow like tributaries into the collective unconsciousness of humanity. I believe that our ancestor, our elders, are our teachers, our taproots to traditions, values, language and history. Researching family history, in my heart, is to respect their legacies, and, to honor their memory; as they are our guides to our future. Through the legacies of our ancestors, we can learn to reconnect our living generations, and our generations to come.
Looking forward to collaborating
I have been researching my genealogy for several years now, but still have a lot of holes in my tree on my dad's side. Bare bones in terms of information, I have been working at filling in the blanks with my African American Ancestors and lost family branches.
The surnames I am researching on my dad's side are Smith( from Missouri, Tennessee), McLeod & Monroe (Ohio, Georgia, Virginia?), Ewing(Kentucky), Mayfield(Louisiana) and Dahl(Sweden).

My paternal grandfather's sister tested with Ancestry DNA. Due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and because she is living, I can not publicly list her information.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Elisa or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
