DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with David by comparing test results with other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with David:

David, Thanks for the welcome messages. Now that everything is ready to get started, I'll be sure to get on here in the next few days. I'm helping with my grandson for the next few days so there'll be a slight delay.

Best regards

I have been wondering why there is so little information on biography's of most people. I have been so busy with my tree that I haven't had time yet. I am fascinated that my brothers wife has Henry VIII and Judy Garland as ancestors. I love this hobby.

I thought I clicked on an option to add my father and mother. I thought IF I could do that, you would see that I am just trying to help my nephew, John Stevenson. I found his tree by doing a search on PCH.

David; Please look closely at the 1850 PA Census record you refer to; the record has Nelson Welch at age 45; This Nelson-7684 was age 30 in 1950 so OBVIOUSLY the PA Census refers to someone else.

The person who transcribed this (or I should say) mis-transcribed this report has Nelson Welch - probably spelled correctly - but Nancy on the form is a ditto under Welch - it should have been transcribed Welch, the same as Nelson. I suggest you delete the incorrect 1850 PA Census Record.

The Ohio Census Record is the correct one; Nelson was married 1849 in Ohio to Nancy Murphy and migrated to Wisconsin by 1855 where Hattie was born in 1860.

The child Hattie, that I list, died in 1920 and could not have been listed on the 1970 Census Record in Wisconsin.
