Meath / Summerhill Girls School Athlone
« on: Yesterday at 23:30 »
Hi everyone, Hope I'm posting on  correct page. Summerhill Girls School Athlone County Meath.
My grandmother Catherine/Kate Kearns was referred there from Rathdrum Workhouse in 1912 until 1918 while her brother John was sent to St Joseph's Athlone until 1917.
I have seen some information about Summerhill but wondered if there would be any archive records from Kate's time there. This is a period she never spoke about and l have only learnt of this recently.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Which company best for Aunt/Niece test
« on: Wednesday 02 June 21 19:06 BST (UK)  »
Hi there many thanks for your replies- my 3/5 cousin is shared dna 31.7cms
Shared segment 2 largest 22cm.
Having looked at dna painted l think it would be 4x Aunt or Uncle.

I assumed the Aunt who tested would have shown up but didnt. The second wants to test with another company but am l correct in thinking that it should have show up on Myheritage ?

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Which company best for Aunt/Niece test
« on: Wednesday 02 June 21 10:25 BST (UK)  »
Good Morning Rootchatters l need advise, having taken Myhertiage dna l found a distant link 3rd-5th cousin.
We were excited as the link could be my alleged father (now dead). So 3rd-5th tested her mother and grandmother just to be sure. When the results arrived shock nothing matched.
The grandmother is sister of alleged father so to my mind and theirs she should be my Aunt.
I have tested with Ancesty & uploaded to Livingdna a while ago but haven't had a link to my paternal side. We were all disappointed but lv accepted it maybe a coincidence and that l matched 3rd-5th  via her paternal line. Headache or what now another of my potential Aunts wants Us to do a British DNA one to one. Is it possible to do this? l don't want to clutch at straws but at the same time l was the one who got the ball rolling.
Please can anyone offer thoughts on this issue

Hi Gadget
Many thanks for the reference links. Makes for interesting reading. So unless I'd totally misunderstood the cousins marrying would give a higher relationship reading for subsequent descendants. Hope that doesn't sound too wordy.
I found it interesting that some 1st cousins decentants of 1st cousins marriage could show up as 1/2 siblings

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / 1st cousins
« on: Monday 15 February 21 08:35 GMT (UK)  »
If 1st cousins marry how will relationships show up thru dna.
Any children from the marriage would have grandparents who were their aunt/uncle.
I'm puzzled.
Someone mentioned double cousins but l wasn't really understanding that either.

Hi l uploaded my dna a while ago- it seemed like forever until any matches came thru.
I have contacted a few people but not many reply  :'(
But that's the same with other sites.
I agree apart from the matches there isn't much more info
Good Luck with your searches

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Harry/Henry Boxer
« on: Friday 16 October 20 17:26 BST (UK)  »
My father's middle name was Harry named after his Uncle.
Harry/Henry Bolton son of Mary Chambers & Edwin Bolton
born 1880 & Lived at 70,Elland Road Islington which came under Beeston Leeds.
Family legend has it Harry was a bear knuckle boxer and would fight in booths at feasts. It has also been said he was a money lender.
A number of years ago a distant descendant said that Harry had won a boxing belt similar to a Lonsdale Belt.
Also saying Harry had boxed in the yard behind Tommy Wass public house at the top of Dewsbury Road.I
If anyone has any knowledge of Harry l would be interested to hear about him. I think he went under a nickname of Styke !
