Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Help with understanding DNA Painter
« on: Tuesday 09 June 20 11:35 BST (UK)  »
On the DNA Painter site, for instance it states Great-Aunt/Uncle then underneath 850, then underneath that figure 330-1467. I understand the range of matching cM is within the second figures but what is the 850? There is no mention of segments on the graft, how important are these & can they help to narrow down the exact match  ???

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Can I move DNA results?
« on: Tuesday 28 April 20 14:35 BST (UK)  »
My Brother has had his DNA results back from My Heritage ( a gift he had for Christmas) He has allowed me access, but to proceed further it's stating a subscription is needed. As I have a subscription with the Ancestry site can I transfer the results over, so that I can manage it on Ancestry?

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Totally new to DNA research
« on: Monday 06 April 20 14:30 BST (UK)  »
We received my Husbands DNA test results from Ancestry this morning & to be honest not being the brightest button in the box I'm finding it rather overwhelming. There are two that look fairly good matches at 468 cM across 19 segments & 405cM across 17 segments that state 1-2nd cousins. The first one doesn't have a link on her tree, but the second has a distant relative that matches. All the other matches are 4-5th cousins & beyond. Please could someone explain what exactly this all means. I have no knowledge at all about DNA testing, but would really like to start learning about it. All advice very welcome, Thanks.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Great Uncle Tommy
« on: Saturday 04 April 20 13:41 BST (UK)  »
I would be very grateful for a repair of this rather worn photograph, the only one I have of my Great Uncle Tommy. He was a bit of a character, with a heart of gold who liked nothing better than to make you laugh. When he was only just 15 years of age he ran off & joined the Royal Welsh Fusiliers with his cousin Llewelyn. They both stated they were a lot older & after months of training it was discovered Llewelyn was underage, so he was discharged & sent home. Tommy on the other hand was sent to France & was engaged in various actions on the Western Front. After 11 months of service he was sent to a new posting & in the same battalion was a soldier who had lived a few houses away from Tommy's parents, so knew him well. Needless to say he was discharged & sent home too. Six months later many of the soldiers Tommy had served with were killed at Mametz Wood in the Battle of Albert, a phase of the Battle of the Somme.
Great Uncle Tommy passed away 1991 aged 91, had it not been for the sharp eyed soldier from his home town it could have been a very different story.
