As of Jan 1st, 2015 pedigrees can be submitted to this forum again. If the pedigree is connected to a DNA test please give the kit# and what kind of test. Family Finder tests are encouraged to submit a pedigree also. Please use the correct format

Holloway descendants who do not have DNA tests can also submit a pedigree

Hello,  My name is now Diana Ross, born Linda Diane Davis to Mother Marilyn Lawshe Norton and James Warren Davis. My father was adopted, so I am looking for my family members in the Lawshe family, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida to work on my family tree. Can anyone help me?

I wish I could change that explanation at FTDNA.  It is very confusing and wouldn't be particularly helpful even if it was written more clearly. 

1. More markers are better - as long as the people you are matching are testing at least to the level you have tested (and/or will test to your level in future).

2. The 67 yDNA test has become the most rational first test over recent years - particularly when it's on sale - as now.  Testing at 37 markers is adequate for some folks - and when it isn't, they can always upgrade.  With the current sale pricing, the later cost to upgrade to 67 ($99 when not on sale) will make the 37 yDNA testing choice now more expensive in total.

3. The analysis of how many generations to your match is confusing and in my opinion highly flawed - unless you understand and use the confidence interval that FTDNA provides.  When you use the confidence interval, the calculation is valid and disappointingly vague.  But - if you try to pick a probability that you "like" while ignoring the confidence interval, then your understanding will be very distorted.


ps - take some time to review this info:

The Holiday Sale ends midnight December 31st, so if you are considering an upgrade or any of the Holiday Tests, I recommend to take advantage of this Sale, as there are some great deals to be had...This Sale also includes DNA transfers from other testing agencies, for FREE !!

The Forsyth/e Surname Project is steadily growing, and is making a difference for many to find distant cousins through Autosomal testing (Family Finder) up to 6-7 generations, or y-DNA testing for several hundred years and beyond. So when ordering a test , or doing a transfer, I ask you to also join the Forsyth/e Project, as this will be beneficial to all.

You can find more info under the "Project Home Page" on the red link

Thanks for your support, and am looking forward to what the New Year brings "ancestral wise" for all of us.

My Lyons lineage:
My father Donald Joseph Lyons was born in Seattle, Washington, USA in 1928;
His father, Bruce Adams Lyons was born in San Diego, California, USA in 1901, died in San Francisco, California, USA in 1965;
His father, Daniel Webster Lyons was born in San Diego, California, USA in 1869 and died in San Francisco, California USA in 1920;
His father, George Lyons in Donegal, Ireland in 1823 and died in San Diego, California, USA in 1908. He apparently arrived in New Bedford, Bristol, Massachusetts in about 1940 before heading to San Diego arriving in about 1847;
His father was apparently Alexander Lyons, born in Inver, Donegal, Northern Ireland in 1805 and he died there in 1890. Alexander's wife and George's mother may have been Catherine or Katherine Kilpatrick born in about 1800 in Palsey, Scotland.

First, I'm just learning about DNA Genealogy.  Yesterday I ordered the Y-DNA67 kit from Family Tree DNA.  Today I was reading through the paragraphs that accompanied them and I now have questions.  The Y-DNA67 kit says it matches within 6 generations, but the Y-DNA37 kit says it matches within 8 generations.  

Isn't 8 generations better than 6 and the price is cheaper.

A few other I haplogroup sites:

I recommend the Z140 group strongly, the administrator William Hartley is very knowledgeable and is very active in providing new information and advice when requested.

I get the sense that things will work best with that route.  Also laying out everything on the Community pages will get results because 23andme has assigned Chia to coordinate things here and she will report back to the brass and the scientists.  So perhaps a "two pronged attack" - but of course always pleasant.  We have to realize that they have their own agenda and priorities and that their resources are not unlimited. ????
