There is another new test pending results:

Kit 173156 - Y-DNA37 - Batch 610 - Due 04/01/2015

It looks like all of the other tests in process may be delayed by a couple of weeks.

DNA testing is proving to be very useful in our genealogy.  Since the Y-chromosome is passed down virtually unchanged (except for a very slow mutation rate), two men with identical, or almost identical, DNA test results are related.  When I add this information to what we know of the genealogies involved, we can sometimes see how they relate.

My project has the icon, but yesterday it led to the recLOH discussion page here in the forums, and today it returns a page not found error. Another change is that yesterday you and I were listed as admins, but not the other co-admin, and today only I am listed.

I added links to the WFN pages of my project, so members should be able to find our pages here if and/or when they wish.

Hello Fellow Project Members,

I have found the following online genealogies to be extremely valuable in my research of the Deaton Family:

Sons and Daughters of Thomas Deaton by Lawson Alexander Deaton, Jr.
Volume I can be downloaded at

Descendants of Thomas Deaton by Cynthia Smithdeal
Available for download at

Please share your favorite online sources for Deaton reference material!

Thank you,

Jim Phillips

I have not done a DNA test and never really had any interest until I was looking my maternal grandfather's death certificate and then I found out that his Grandfather died at Gettysburg.  I started trying to trace my paternal roots then and I get stuck in the early 1800's.  I look up the Alford family tree and find tons of Alfords from all over the US that passed right by us and know their tree further back than I.  I'm in southern Franklin County, NC near the Wake County line...what once was Bute County back in the 1700's.  I can trace my Alford people in southern Franklin County back to my great-great-great grandfather who was supposedly born in Franklin County in either 1813 or 1814.  Kisar Alford was married to Martha M. Upchurch on Jan. 1, 1841.  Kisar's name was Resa in the 1850 census, Keasar in the 1860 census and John in the 1870 census....I'm guessing his name probably was John Keasar or Keasar John Alford?  Several of the Alfords were in (northeastern Franklin Co./southern Bute) in the 1700's.  I'd like to make a connection somewhere in some way.  From Keasar/John/Kisar/Resa forward, I know those people......and I'm double kin.  My grandfather's Granddad Berkley Moses Alford and my grand mom's Granddad Bryant Alford were brothers and sons of John Keasar...3rd cousins married (my grandparents).  Kisar's kids were Susan 1843, (Little)Berry 1844 (died in Civil War also), Bryant 1845, Berkley Moses 1849, Clara Ann 1853, John T. 1854, Sidney A. 1858, Roscoe Calvin 1860, Jane Ellen 1865, Mary 1867.        Help connect further back if you can - Chris Alford

I posted this last night on the ISOGG Forum:

I have advised FTDNA of a number of issues that seriously concern me with myGroups.  Several of those directly affect any project that displays their project information at WorldFamilies

Any project with their website listing a WorldFamilies address in their Project Profile page was supposed to have an Icon at the top of the left side bar of myGroups to allow their project members to go to their project site (Icon is our "Hosted by WorldFamilies" Icon from the WorldFamilies banner)  (See link below)

    Some projects who should have the Icon do have it
    Most projects I checked who should have the Icon don't
    At least one project which shouldn't have the Icon does have it

I had also requested clear language on the Icon to explain that a Searcher should click on the Icon to go to the Project Site.  (That hasn't happened - the Icon says "Click Here to go to WorldFamilies".  Hmmm  - I wonder how many Searchers would figure that one out?)

I did get the Icon at Barton and have turned on myGroups to see what reaction my Project Members will have with no encouragement on my part.  And - after several hours of work, Marilyn managed to create a banner that would upload - where we explain how to get to the Barton project site

So - if you are displaying your Project Info at WorldFamilies - hang tight.  I assume things will eventually be straightened out

With FTDNA's forced and unannounced rollout of the myGroups project sites, how will our WFN project sites be affected? I imagine it is a safe bet that WFN was as blindsided by the rollout as the project admins were, so you are working on collecting your thoughts and gauging the impact.
