DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Michael or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree: Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Michael Sheffield: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup J1c2b5, FTDNA kit #420484, MitoYDNA ID T13629 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Michael:

Hi, Michael.

I appreciate your desire to have a project manage profiles that you no longer want to have your name on, but projects cannot keep an eye on very many profiles, and we certainly cannot deal with profiles outside our declared scope. Consistent with that, the New Netherland Settlers Project does not have a role in dealing with 19th and 20th century people like Charles Mortimer Hennion (1889-1972). I have removed the project box and project account from that profile. Thanks for understanding!

Wow! I check my family email feed, daily, to look for cousins (which we are, 11c1r) - and for the last several days, your contributions have been taking up half the page. Time after time. Great job! That's gettin er done! Wikitree is a blast. Hope to hear from you, when you get a chance, cuz!

Hi Michael,

Thanks for replacing the abbreviations in the marriage location of John Sheffield (abt.1684-) with the full location name.

I also see you changed the year from 1704 to 1703 in the data field. The source in question, while there is no image, says Event Date: 9 Jan 1703, however, I expect the date is the date from the original record and thus the date has not been converted to from Old style to New Style.

According to our style guide for date fields, date fields on Wikitree are always entered as New Style dates (i.e., Gregorian Calendar), therefore, unless I am incorrect about the Family Search record being old style, the marriage date needs to be put back to 9 Jan 1704.

Please let me know if you have any questions on this.

Thanks.

-William

That sounds rather ominous. What profiles?
posted by Michael Sheffield
Hi Michael,

It needed be ominous..mainly the ones that need help are things like this:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Henion-624 which contains a list of sources for more than one person and represents more than one individual.

I would be indirectly 'connected' through the Linville family to (Rigsbee-12). Yes, I am related to Thomas Sheffield b. 1791 (bucks)). I don't have any other information than what is posted here. You are welcome to post the photos Carla and identify who is who if that helps.

Good day to you, Mr. Sheffield: Regarding Ackerman-263 and Ackerman-2072, I found a 1900 census. What is of note is that Samuel Betts(age 84), the father of Mary Betts, is listed as living with George and Mary. This helps to confirm that Mary Thresa (Hamm) Ackerman is the spouse of a different George. I changed the date of birth for George based on this census and you will be pleased to see that this profile is now open. I have been working so hard on other profiles but you provided the impetus for me to check data just in case. Thank you.
Congratulations to you Michael on becoming one of the newest Green Badged "Generous Genealogist". You made an impression on others to be helpful and willing to collaborate with them. Also a great Job going over 1,000 contributions in January, keeping up with your record from last year!!
