Surnames/tags: Downing Downen Downey
The goal of this project is to trace our Downings back as far as possible and find out how we are related. We know Downings came from England, Ireland and Scotland. The goal of this project is to get our Downing lines "back to the boat" by finding the original immigrant ancestors.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Cheryl Rothwell. I have two Downings lines. They intermarried just prior to the Civil War. DNA has now shown they share a common ancestor but who that man is has not been definitively proven. One possible candidate is a Scottish prisoner transported in 1651.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- posting your Downing line(s)
- adding appropriate location tags
- posting DNA information
- Login to edit this profile and add images.
- Private Messages: Send a private message to the Profile Manager. (Best when privacy is an issue.)
- Public Comments: Login to post. (Best for messages specifically directed to those editing this profile. Limit 20 per day.)
- Public Q&A: These will appear above and in the Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Forum. (Best for anything directed to the wider genealogy community.)
