Please accept my trusted list requests for your Finnish ancestors.
I see that you have an interest in DNA study and have taken a DNA test. Would you be interested in starting a One Name Study for your surname or another name you are researching? The purpose of the One Name Study is to coordinate any WikiTreers who are researching one particular surname and to provide a resource for collaboration

For instructions on how to get started and suggestions for getting the most out of your study, see: One Name Study

For more information, contact Doug or Alison with any questions.

Please change your privacy level to "Private with Public Family Tree" to allow your Y-DNA results to be associated with your direct paternal line.

Thanks and sincerely, Peter

Hi Ray, You say that you do not trust "Ancestry" or the facts that may be obtained from that site, so if you do not mind, what site do you use? For me, "rootsweb" has been a let down, lately.

Hi Ray,

Are you still active on Wikitree? I sent you a private email a week ago regarding a needed correction to Ninechildren Woodworth ID: Woodworth-629. Would appreciate if you could take a look.
