I was wondering about your DNA matches
What results do you get when you put in location matches ?

I.m also researching Latvian relatives .
If the tree owners know the town of their ancestors origins it could help you with some of your guesses.

I have now traced american descendants of great great grandfather ....sometimes they know exact birth town of their ancestors sometimmes admin district Riga often they have Russia not Latvia as country of origin and 2 had  grandparents place of birth as england because thsts what was on immigration record tho actually they were born in Courland Latvia.

If you can identify potential latvian.great grandparents and their siblings from other peoples trees maybe you will be able to work out who Alexander Krylov was and where he went If he was an army deserter that would be a good reason to hide identity .Good luck ...dont give up things turn up uexpectedly ....
Ps have either of your parents had dna tests ....i found results mothets dna which did not show up in mine .

Hello Jessica

..that makes us 2nd cousins once removed I think.

Ive made contact with some of the other Macdermid cousin descendants via DNA links on Ancestry .

My father and his sister were nearly shipped to USA to stay with an aunt in WW2 but as their father was at sea when emigration documents had to be signed by him they ended up staying in UK .

I  have finally seen an episode on sisters tv ...i enjoyed it .

Think it will bring new people to genealogy and dna testing .tho a bit contrived and repetative at times .i was tired when.i watched it but look forward to other episodes

Im glad my family story isnt on there the radio is a great media and we can do it in episodes .

I had to ring bbc radio Bristol in vdefence of 1907 criminals Lottie R and Leo S ...because they had kept the sensationalism of newspapers at time and not included hostorical context as the original programmer on bbc shropshire had .

Thats another thing the story always continues but will the TV show present follow ups ..further relatives ...etc

Are you sure he'ad of house is not on page before
and they are all friends

Or Peter was a friend before he married the sister so that relationship is the most obvious to him.

I wonder if this is the show that neayou I cluded the story of Lottie Roberts and Leo Selwyn  ...I helped  richard tisdale history producerresearch  for BBC radio shropshire  because our research coincided looking for Lottie in 1901

TV decided not to use that story

BUT radio Bristol has taken up the story's a really great listen a d there was a blog ? With account. Any ideas g pics and  viewers comments

Can anyone find out what time bbc radio Bristol  history  program is orifice it's 5 episodes on  a general show ...and what frequency to tune in 

I agreed via RT to be interviewed on phone Fri eve ...presumably at end of last program  live

So now I.have to find all myour notes ...there is a thread on hear 
With leo selwyn  handcuff King who could be great grand father but unlikely.
Age mismatch and newspaper photo doesn't matter how the 1 we have on  his WW1 registration docuz

If you do listen please remain open minded and reme5newspapers have always liked eye grabbing words

You have to find births of infants that mayou have died young too.sometimes a child dies and a later child is given same forename so the children will not appear in order 3rd boyear named after father 3rd girl after her mother but does anyone know trad conventions after that ...I think it does involve great grandparents .If a man remarried his first daughter would be named after new wife's mother. ..but what about the other children .My MacD families often had 12 children so I get to see patterns but also have several cousins in each generation with same names and uncles younger than their nephews etc .when my grandfather was born his eldest brother already had 2 sons
My gp aren't sure broke swith tradition in 1930 and named my father after a man (who had been important in grand dads life but not sure how ....they always joked he was named after milkman but DNA has confirmed I have same blood as the 1850 Macds)It might have been after a naval officeyr who helped financially or had saved his life
