If I am the manager of a profile that you would prefer to manage, please let me know.
Many of the people I manage are not directly related to me as they were orphans that I noticed and adopted. So if you are related, please let me know.
DNA Update: Family Tree Y67 results have shown that while I am related to many people with the surname Ross, I am also related to portions of the Matheson, Kennedy and McKenzie families. These matches point to common ancestors living between 1600-1720.
Ultimately, my DNA points to an origin in central Norway. It is likely that a Norse family settled near the Inner Herbides and then made peace in the 1200's near Loch Alsh in Wester Ross. From there, ancestors migrated east ward and became integrated within Highland Clans.
Some of my relatives probably participated in large scale military battles near the year 1650, were taken prisoner and shipped over seas. My direct ancestors however, remained in Scotland and emigrated initially around 1850 to Jamaica and then Canada before eventually settling in the US.
