I have been an avid Family Genealogist for 35 years! I am more about the documentation and proof than I am the "numbers". As I have researched my own family I have researched lots of collateral and community lines so I have a pretty good database for McNairy, Chester and Hardeman Counties in Tennessee. Additionally, I have done a good bit of work in Walker, Fayette, Lawrence, Tuscaloosa counties in Alabama and Shenandoah, Augusta, Orange, Rockingham and Old Dunmore counties in Virginia.

I have several branches of family from Onslow and Jones counties in North Carolina as well.

As my family and I participate in a DNA project, I realize I have ancestors who have lived in almost every county in Tennessee, North Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, and South Carolina and a good bit of Virginia and Kentucky.

I still have many "missing in action" ancestors and this is primarily because they were very poor and lived in counties with major record losses. The second reason they are missing is a lack of time and resources to go to the State and the county archives and courthouses in search of their history.

I am thankful I started my genealogy adventure with two grandparents living and various great aunts, uncles, as well as older cousins in the family willing to share Bible records, family history and stories. I learned to go to the courthouse to search for the records and that is still my preferred way to research, but very grateful for the many online databases that allow me to research 24/7 from the comfort of my home.

My favorite records are deeds and chancery court records in addition to the usual marriage, birth and death and obituary records.

Wife, Mary Jane Davis dies after 1880 and two of their children go to IOWA for some reason, suspect as orphans. They are located in 1895 in IOWA.

Hi Geneadiva,

Thank You for your note in reference to William Giles-1574 and William Giles-937 possibly being duplicates. My efforts in this case are primarily in cleaning up unsourced and abandoned profiles that give very little info and only refer to an old user submitted tree by way of "Sourcing". I am not giving much weight to assertions made (dod) in a profile created by a GEDCOM upload that included a brother by the same name and attached to the same parents as William Giles-937. It appears to me, that she just dumped an unsourced, mistake filled GEDCOM file in Oct. 2013, and never came back.

BTW, the same GEDCOM also included 2 brothers named John Giles who were merged some time ago. I think what is being seen here is multiple profiles reflecting various speculative and unsourced theories for the same person. It is not common to have multiple surviving siblings of the same names.

Thanks for your note on lack of auDNA matches. The y-DNA of Meredith men from Delaware and the upper colonies typically does not match that of men found in Virginia and the Carolinas.
