I think this list might be useful to lots of people.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: DNA tests-is anyone else fed up?

DNA is great fun.  I was unexpectedly contacted this morning by a lady.  Our Great Great Great Grandmothers were sisters, but Geni.com says the relationship is

"She is your first cousin twice removed's wife's brother's ex-wife's ex-husband's great aunt's husband's great niece's husband's second great aunt's husband's third great niece."

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Alternative to Scapple
« on: Sunday 31 October 21 16:53 GMT (UK)  »
I am just looking for a free alternative so that I could draw my 15 closest matches as circles, name them, and connect them appropriately to each other allowing me to then click and drag the circle to tidy it up and make it more More readily understandable.

I am trying to attach a screenshot of a game called untangle, where the object is to to drag the various circles to make it as tidy as possible. This is exactly what I am trying to achieve but I need an alternative to Scapple.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Alternative to Scapple

I have read that this is a very good product for drawing a map connecting your different matches together but it is not free. I wondered if anybody has has had success using a free alternative for connecting 15 to 20 closest matches to yourself and to each other.

With paper document as well as subscription I think findmypast have radically overpriced it. I'm interested to find out more details about my grandparents and one set of great grandparents but I'm certainly not paying those prices.

Yes, it was the Sidney Corrie reference that helped me.  Googling "Haddo Terrace" Scarborough didn't though.  How odd.

I'm looking at the buildings on Street View it see if I can find any hint of where it was.

Thank you all. I'm surprised I can't find the YWCA named an marked on any old map. The census entries suggest the properties were quite large.  I hope for more suggestions.

Shaun's references match the 1881 census, although Mrs Bell is Moses Bell.

Allan, yes, I agree, I'm looking for it on 1881-era maps, though.

It might be somewhere like this, the NW side of Alma Squarte.  There were 14 large properties.
