Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: The Times wants your views: DNA ethnicity results
« on: Wednesday 03 February 16 21:31 GMT (UK)  »
I just recently received my results from Ancestry DNA.  As I am Canadian, I was pleased with my ethnicity results.  It confirmed that I was always right in saying I had more Irish in me then anything. 

I am a little disappointed by not getting any good matches to other DNA results with people on ancestry, but have been thinking about the idea of uploading my raw DNA to GEDmatch or Family tree DNA.  I would like to find more connections.

Hello Alan,

You have to make 3 posts before you are able to "edit" your home child in the database.

One more post and you should be good to go :)

A book" Angels from the Meadow" by James Stanhope Brown  is an account of the transporting of young boys from Manchester`s notorious "Angel Meadow" area. ( Where you could get mugged by nuns and Police dogs would only go in threes).
The boys were rescued from the streets and placed in various homes/orphanages and then sent to Canada.What they thought about that is not recorded. Some did well but others had hard lives and were really kept almost like slaves.
 One of the ships was the Cephalonia.                   .Viktoria.

Would be very interesting to read that book Viktoria.
