Since becoming involved in DNA testing and as the Co-Coordinator of the Terry DNA Project I have discovered at least 8 other "Genetic Cousins" most unknown to me previously and some of whom I had been corresponding with for several years -- we had no idea our Terry families were related in any way!
This has enabled me to focus my research on a specific area: Caroline and Hanover Co. VA. Before the DNA test and for 25 years+ -- all I knew was my early descendants were born and died in Craven [nowChester Co.] SC.
I am sold on DNA testing as a tool and am "a true believer"....
My enthusiasm about the subject spilled over at a recent Genealogical Society meeting and I have been invited to give a talk about combining DNA testing with Traditional genealogical research at the local Garfield County Genealogical Society meeting in Enid OK on Saturday, March 11th, 2006.
