my line goes back to 1655 in Wigton, Galloway, Dumfrieshire, Scotland with John Alexander WALKER and his wife, Katherine Jane McKNIGHT. Wikitree has the line back to 1205. I'm just stuck on proving my line back to John Alexander WALKER and then further back. Is anyone else related to this line?

I am looking to find someone who is interested in taking over as profile manager for Daniel WALKER (Born about 1818 in Cayuga County, New York, and Died between 1875 and 1880). He adopted Ira Hall (Born: about 1 October 1850; Died: between 1905 and 1910) sometime before 1860 and Ira HALL's name was changed to Ira Hall WALKER. All of Ira Hall WALKER's children used the Walker Surname. Ira's son, Daniel Lester WALKER (born: 22 January 1877 in Genesee County, New York and died on 8 March 1940 in Kent County, Michigan), also has a profile that needs a manager. I posted my notes on them to wikitree for other researchers, but this is not my line and I would prefer someone who is interested in the line or knows more about the line to take it over.

Hi Steven! Could you contact me? We need to regroup & have the Walker Name Study be the "parent" project with subprojects for narrower, specific studies, such as your "WALKER surname in the Lanarkshire Scotland area with YDNA R M512 M514 M198 M17 halpogroup."

I'll send a trusted list request for this page. Could you be thinking of a name for a space page for your Lanarkshire study? Or would a Category page suffice?

Either way, "WALKER R M512 M514 M198 M17 L168 From Lanarkshire Scotland" is a bit clunky for the name of either, but we need something more specific than Lanarkshire, Scotland, Walker Name Study (which would be the proper style for a location subcategory of the Walker Name Study). Would "Walker DNA, Lanarkshire, Scotland" work for you?
