  1. Searcy DNA

    Hi! I am new to this website. My family research interest is the name Searcy. I belong to a Searcy/Cercy/Searcey/Scercy DNA research group in the US. We have recently found out that all of the people in our group who have taken the DNA test have a very rare value for DYS481=21. This value...

  2. Hampshire Anglo-Norman Ancestry and DNA

    I am interested in using a y-DNA test and hope for some expert guidance. Using paper documents from the National archives, I have established with increasing confidence my paternal deep ancestry back to 1522. The spelling of the surname changes several times .There is then a gap until 1480 when...

  3. Does DNA disprove traditional genealogy?

    I have taken the liberty of starting this thread with a post from a different thread as I feel it is worth considering own its own merits. In answer to Michelle I would say in perhaps 50 or 100 years this might be a real problem but not at present. Why do I say that, simply because DNA...

  5. Norman Ancestry on Paper

    Please can anyone point me in the right direction I have used TNA early modern and medieval documents to trace my patrionic surname back to a French family in Hampshire England.

  6. Surprise American ancestry?

    Hi all, Just wanted to share and maybe get insight. I finally did a DNA test after researching my genealogy for 8 years on paper. I found my DNA mixture pretty expected (70% English, 6 percent Scandinavian likely from Scottish and Northern England ancestors, 1% German, and the rest...

  7. Taken aback by DNA results!

    A couple of years ago I had my brother's DNA done by NatGeo but decided to try mine with Anc* as well as my husband's. His result was pretty much as expected, he is half Scandinavian and then a lot of English with some Irish and traces of Belgian/Germans (Loyalists). The proportions in his...

  8. DNA test for Channel Islands

    Hi all, I'm posting this on behalf of my sister-in-law. It has always been vague who my father was. A new family rumour has surfaced that he may have been a Channel Island's sailor who was in New Zealand in 1948. I'm guessing my only hope of confirming this is the remote chance of finding a...

  11. A Dilema

    Within my Fletcher circle on my DNA results I have one person saying he is related to Nancy Phillips. But I am trying to tell him he isn't. He does show on my circle but has no connection to me. He does with some of the others within my circle. If he was related to my Nancy he would be showing up...

  14. Basic types of DNA tests

    As a rough guide, there are three types of tests: autosomal, Y-DNA and mtDNA. You just really need the first one to get started. Autosomal is a general one for everybody. Y-DNA is only for chaps! It just traces a male's father and his father and his father, etc. so it's very good for surname...

  15. Privacy and public trees

    I've always been fiercely protective over my identity and privacy but I've had to modify that a bit with my DNA matches! I have four private trees on Ancestry (private to protect the living and the personal information about my ancestors that they might not have wanted others to know). The trouble...
