John Calvin Anderson born 1804 USA died 1846

I need the identity of his father

Random question  ;D

Does it make grammatical sense to say that a great great great uncle (on someones fatherline) is a "paternal ancestor"?

Family History Beginners Board / Cannot find death

Andrew Anderson, mariner, possibly born in Shetland

Had a son Ralph Taylor Anderson in 1815 in Sunderland.
When Ralph was married in 1855, his father was deceased.

Spouse was called Mary or Margaret Taylor

I've tried everything, ready to give up!

I'm looking for a good DNA company, I preferably want to know about my Y-DNA and go into detail about halopgroups etc

I'm a newbie

Ancestry only seems to tell you that you are "80% European" etc which I find a bad deal

Sarah what? Can't quite make it out. Also, who could she be? I've never heard of her so why would she be present. Thanks

Is there a way for me to identify the other of the bride? Or is it just pure guesswork?
