Hello all my name is Debbie McDonald, and i live in Morristown, Tn, but originally from Clarence Center, (right to the NE of Buffalo) New York. I was born in Buffalo in 1952, and was raised in a small town outside of Buffalo called Clarence Center. I was raised in this town and had graduated from Clarence Sr. High School in 1970. I was a late bloomer in this addictive field of genealogy. My family is mainly from NY, Canada, and England, France and Germany. From my grandmother on one side to great grandparents on other side, they are all from other countries.. On my dads maternal side the Davis, when i found out that my 4th great grandfather Lewis Davis from Wales bn 1740 and died 01 OCT 1776, during the Battle of White Plains, in New York, when the English pushed George Washington back and George had to cross the Potomac River, i was hooked on the history of the family. So from that on, say about 20 years now i have ben working on family history. I have one room in the house, my office, and i have things scattered i know where all is tho.
Several months ago (2018) I had my DNA tested and this is the results i got:
2. Ireland and Scotland-14 percent 3. Germanic Europe-13 percent a Germany and the Midwestern United States 4. France-10percent 5. Sweden-5 percent 6. Norway-2 percent
Hoping to get my brother's DNA tested soon
As a Wiki Tree beginner, well I have been here now what bout 32 days , i have all my trees on Ancestry, so i have been doing my tree here one person at a time. I would love to help in any way i can....
My family researching, i would love to go as far back as I can, as I love history pertaining to the family.

Thanks for your message.
Unfortunately I'm not at all well at the minute, so the best person to have a word with is the other Cornwall person on point, Gillian (she's super-lovely). HTH!

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

I see from the United Kingdom project page that you are interested in Kempe's.
Perhaps the Kemp(e) one-name study I run might be of interest to you?
Kind regards, Andrew
