Mat - Mat - Pat -Pat ohhhh crazy
« on: Saturday 18 May 19 15:04 BST (UK) »
I was born in Leicester... and presumed nothing.. when I started this lark.

Maternal side defintitely all Leicester (ish)
Maternal ---Paternal side seemingly so...

Paternal Paternal Scottish
Paternal Maternal Cornish
Paternal Maternal Leicester.. and on and crazy on..

Nobody will comprehend where I am coming from 

but I had to attempt and sort an idea of who and what I am..

but why today on researching my

9th GG on my Maternal Grandmothers side .. do I find a connection

with my 4th gg on my Maternal Grandfathers side....

AND why did I start this game in the beginning.

WHY Am I drawn to an area of Leicester that we ----- honestly had NO idea we were linked to and I am now living almost on the doorstep of these MY 8th / 9ths..

Who is controlling all this..

and WHY do I need to know.   my tree is so intertwined.. its a wonder I havent got 7 legs and a cyclops eye...

AND YET not intermarriage.. well not.... definite on that  at the moment.

I sure can say on the one hand I am 10 odd gens Leicestershire... but ALL of Leicestershire.... Syston side to market Bosworth.. all over... 

crazy... so so difficult to sort.

AND why did they not Spell the surname the same twice..

:)

I am currently trying to see if Mr Marma & I are related other than by our marriage.

I was born & brought up in Cheshire, he was born & brought up in Derbyshire

But go back a few generations and we both have ancestors of the same name in Yorkshire. So far they are from neighbouring parishes -- but it is possible there is a connection somewhere if I dig deep enough!
Wainwright - Yorkshire
Whitney - Herefordshire
Watson -  Northamptonshire
Trant - Yorkshire
Helps - all
Needham - Derbyshire
Waterhouse - Derbyshire
Northing - all

Most of my roots are in Lincolnshire; the closest connection I`ve found is that my great uncle worked for my cousin`s " other " gt grandparents at a farm. I didn`t know until that my cousin even had links to this village ! By coincidence back in the 80s we had a neighbour who was the manager at the same farm. Come forward to the 90s, we moved 15 miles and a teenager started a small business washing cars at peoples homes; by then his mother was managing director of the same farming business.

DNA's the real kicker with this. Oooh look, that person matches with a paternal cluster *and* a maternal cluster - even though they come from opposite ends of the country. Then you find a sneaky couple who met in the middle and messed up the nice logical cM pattern...

I would love to conquer the complicity and comprehension of the DNA malarky

I have a MIND BLOCK  it used to happen at school in Algebra

there was me at the back of the class off on one of her dreams... luckily the blackboard rubber always missed :)

I'm pretty sure that DNA would not sort out the paternity of one of my great great grandmothers.

She was born in a village where everyone seems to be related to everyone else via at most two easily located marriages. I now know that her daughter, my great grandmother, married a fifth cousin. the same local surnames marry into both these lines, sometimes more than once.

Following the DNA might rule out 10% of the couple of hundred possible fathers, assuming there were samples from all their descendants.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

I hated maths at school. Hated it.

I often follow on from WDYTYA about ancestors of celebs, the ones not mentioned in the programme. I found I am a distant cousin of Patsy Kensit. I once looked into the family tree of my grandmother's brother's wife and found she was a distant cousin by blood as well as my great aunty by marriage.
