I have been researching this family and others for about 25 years. I received a certificate in Genealogical Research in 2015, and participated in ProGen 22. After all these years and all this study, it never ceases to amaze me when I break through another brick wall and discover how little I really know. I am eager to learn what I don't know and to share what I do!
I have ad my DNA analysed, and I am 100% European, with a smidgen of Balkan. My Paternal ancestors are from colonial New England, a majority of them from New Haven, Connecticut, but also from Colonial Virgina, as well as lines from Glamorgan, Wales, the Netherlands, and one line from Lanarkshire, Scotland. My maternal ancestors are French Canadian's from the St Lawrence River Valley, and Irish. It will be interesting to find the Balkan in there.
Surnames I am focusing on include :Williams, Jones, Johns, Smith, Martin, Hart, Van Gordon, Gaffney, Earner, Cunningham. There are the lines where I am looking to break through brick walls, answer questions, or connect with DNA matches.
My husband is of Italian, Irish, Isle of man, and German descent, with trace amounts of Ashkenazi Jewish. I have created a one Place study of his ancestral hometown of Acerra, Italy. Please come take a look if you are interested! Italians from the town of Acerra in Napoli
His surnames I am actively searching are: Duro, Schiavone, Brucci, Balletta, Caporale, Gallo, de Rosa, Kelly, Lyons, Litskey, Wilkins, Brunning, Gelling, and Quayle.

The profiles you're creating from your gedcom don't have any sources. See these: Johns-3679, Unknown-399191, Johns-3687, Fox-11187. When you signed the Honor Code you agreed to provide sources. Before you add any more profiles, please go back and add sources for the ones you've already created. Here are some ideas for finding sources: Space:Jillaine's_Dream_Source_Help_Page Thanks!
