I was born Jerry Wayne Smith in Richmond, Va. 12/17/50 at the Medical College of Virginia. Adopted very soon afterwards my name was changed to Thomas Edward Paris. I know the Smith connection from adoption documents, though that is all I am aware of.
I recently had FTDNA results returned(Y37) and posted on ysearch as well as ybase. I match person designated S-10 whose ancestor was William B. Smith b. 1821 Cornwall, England.My designation is S-50.
I realize my natural parents would prefer to remain hidden, which I respect, although I would like to be able to trace my Smith ancestors if possible. I also have two children that would like to know their bloodlines.
Anyone having information that would be helpful I would appreciate their contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
