Hi Colin,

Welcome to rootschat.

Iím afraid Gail hadnít been on rootschat since 2013, but if she has the same email address she should be notified of your reply.

After you make a couple more posts you can contact her by Personal Message by clicking on her name.

Good luck.

My cousin comes up as DNA match to people with surname Riddle

His  closest match is someone in Texas who had Melanie Pritchard as birth mother weve worked out that John Pritchard Must be half brother to my
Cousins grandfather John William Dobson birth mother Harriet Dobson  .

Both single mother were maids in
Yorkshire area and both named sons John which could mean it was his first name

The DNA match only had 1 English grandparent
The fact the he came fromYorkhire too
Cousin and I have 1 welsh gparent and 1 half Jewish so we knew connection could only be thru the Dobson side .


Harriet was also child of single mother .
So could be g g grandfather was a Riddle .

I've clustured & colour coded all Riddle connection
Some very small or unlinked trees but if you DNA match to BD please contact me

If you haven't DNA tested please see if you have locations Beverley.sculcoatd

There is a thread on here about Harriet s complicated family with all datea and location

can some kind person copy link I'm having fatfinger small screen problem .

Ps any photos of Riddles from Yorkshire or sculcoats appreciated for family likeness comparisons

There are probably a great many legal repercussions -- so buyers beware.
There might be dreadful hidden traps.
