I have thought about this subject at length.  Last year before Christmas I sent out three personal letters to Ireland, in the county where my mother was from, to try recruiting for a surname project.  Two did not respond; the third responded, and I ended up sponsoring his kit.  The third one was from the townland where my grandfather was born, and I figured we'd have something in common and something to talk about - I think I was right.

I am considering putting ads in local papers in Ireland and England to recruit, maybe "lifestyle" section.  Postage is expensive and the ads might be seen by more people.

Is there a way to combine our DNA results on the Ancestry page?

Thank you so much for you suggestions.  I respect your knowledge and will consider upgrading when the big Y price comes down and FTDNA gets their y tree updated. Ll

It would be wonderful if Polly would upgrade James Burton Pruitt and if Polly and I can work something out to help Bobby Clark to do likewise.  I have tried to contact both but no reply.  My aol email may be the problem.  If Polly or Bobby are reading this post....please contact me.  Email  Watch all those oo's and tt's it does fool the eye. 

Also, It would be great if they joined the Smith surname project.  I can help if need be. 

Chuck Doebler did contact me and he will be joining the Pruitt project.  I am waiting to hear back from the others. Bobby, C Doebler, S Smith and W Smith all have clues to Polly and my Pruitt ancestry.  I will continue to research their line and hope to find a breakthrough.

Again thanks so much

John and I welcome everyone to our new site. You can take a look at our previous Discussions at They're organized by Family Group, so there will be some duplication.

Then begin your new conversation here. Thanks to all who have followed us to this site.

I am a new member and will be tested soon. My birth father is Steve Rowe (1945-?). He was from Aurora,Colorado. I'm not sure what to do next. Any advice?

Does anyone know the origins of Andrew Russell, for whom Russell County AL was named? There is much about him in the Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish, centering on Augusta County, but I'd like to know where he and/or his father were before that.

Through DNA testing, I've discovered I connect with 37 markers to four other Russells of Lunenburg County VA researchers. Kitty Gloyne's line is one of them.  Names include William, Paschal, Josephus, and Thornton.

Actually, I no longer believe my Matthew Russell is the 'father' in the Thornton Russell Bible, but possibly a brother to the father.
