Buckinghamshire / Sarah Walker of Booker or West Wycombe dob c.1826/27
« on: Tuesday 31 March 20 16:38 BST (UK)  »
As far as I can tell a Sarah Walker married a William Martin q4 1846 Wycombe. Although this couple appear to be childless there are several DNA matches that appear to have a Walker connection in and around Buckinghamshire. It would help enormously if I knew Sarah Walker's parents, but I'm clueless and need pointing in the right direction, please. TIA

Westmorland / Richard Varey married Ellen Miller 1845 Ashton/Oldham
« on: Sunday 10 November 19 06:54 GMT (UK)  »
Maybe this should also be posted in Yorkshire, Lancashire...

From the above couple's marriage info it looks like Richard's father was a William Varey. Does anyone know who might be his mother, please? Any dates/places/info for William & his wife would be much appreciated.

Ellen is traceable via census records from 1861 (when she is a widow) onwards and they appear to have had 4 GRO recorded children. There is a death record for a Richard Varey, 1859, Oldham, that appears to fit...but I've yet to find 1841 or 1851 census, such are the variable spellings of Varey.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / LivingDNA upload to MH?

Has anyone successfully uploaded their LivingDNA raw data to MyHeritage or have I imagined seeing MH advertising that facility?

Australia / How does one in the UK purchase a NSW 1870s Death record, please?

I have the register(ed) entry and have been told that what I need is the detailed record/certificate to correctly & fully identify parents.

I'm happy to buy it and would like to know how this can be done from the UK and likely cost, please?


Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Paddy Waldron's article
« on: Tuesday 29 January 19 13:04 GMT (UK)  »
What happened to your reading glasses, Martin? 29th of January, 2019 is today's date according to my somewhat beleaguered brain and his critique holds good even if originally compiled in 2014. Of course you will have your own opinion on his contributions and hopefully, will soon add your own views, which will be warmly welcomed. Perhaps the URL leading to his Adventure could have been in the op, but it's not too difficult to find imo?

Buckinghamshire / Joseph Clark(e) & Maria Harding - Great Marlow
« on: Tuesday 22 January 19 07:47 GMT (UK)  »
Brickwalled, again! Can anybody point me towards their parents/grandparents, please? They both appear to have been born, married and died in Great Marlow, Joseph 27/3/1805 - 15/11/1878; Maria 18/4/1811 - 4/10/1881, married 20/10/1832. I'd like to be able to identify 3 & 4 ggp if possible...

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / DNAGedcom - cluster tool
« on: Saturday 22 December 18 17:57 GMT (UK)  »
DNAGedcom client has another tool which produces clusters. Best (quickest?) results, start with default; wider results take a bit longer. Interesting to review results saved to your PC.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Gedmatch "matches"?
« on: Saturday 29 September 18 19:33 BST (UK)  »
Hi. I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction, please? I'm trying to get my head around my "top matches" and am having problems:

The kit, A548592 (female), has top matches with T450072 H537641 H645922 T766300. The "T" kits are mother & son; the "H" are mother and daughter. Other members of both of these (T&H)families have been tested yet appear to have no shared DNA with "A". There is no triangulation. Tier 1 utilities with default settings were used. What, if anything, can be interpreted from these results, please. None of us can establish where the connection has occurred although it might stem from Scottish migrants to both Canada & Australia.

Total Cm ranges from 54-81; largest segment ranges from 29-38 across "T & H"

Any suggestions for what I might do next, please? Although there appear to be innumerable segment matches & triangulation groups (despite multiple sibling tests and duplicates tests from other companies), I need to toddle before walk before run!

Canada / The Kith & Kin of Kinloss pub 2003
« on: Monday 06 August 18 14:48 BST (UK)  »
My attention was drawn to the above publication just a few days ago and I am trying to fill in a few more details since I understand that there may well be members of the Ross family who have been in the area, farming Concession 2, Lot 37 since 1860 until at least 2003. Those interested can find out more on but I am particularly interested in a Kenneth Gordon Ross 1925-2001 and his wife, Helen, 1930-1994. Not being a Canadian citizen I cannot access pertinent records and would like to discover when/where they married and where/when KGR spent WW11. I haven't Helen's surname but her middle initial was "A". I do not know if they had any children but if so I'd like to contact them if possible. KGR moved to North Battleford and joined the RCMP, retiring c.1970. There is a brief obit on but not much else. Any further info very much appreciated and thanks in advance.
