Family History
13 th March 2019
There were six working away today and we made good progress.
Diane had to go early as her laptop was poorly, but Lesley was in full
swing with a lot of work done and more to come building her tree.
Ana is now well on with the same work, but has just got into the DNA
scene. She demonstrated her results and we discussed the implications.
There is a story in her family of a Spanish element but no Spanish or
south European DNA connections have shown up. It was suggested that
maybe this story comes from the fact that sailors and soldiers from the
Spanish Armada were shipwrecked around Britain"s coasts, but this
should have shown up anyway. The story continues.
Keith and John D worked on straightening out duplicates and "false" half
siblings: a straightforward process but one which needs thought before
action, as important information can be lost.
Chris D was working away from the table on her side of the family, but
has come across multiple clues for John D"s maternal side which now
need pursuing.
John H, also working away from the venue, has been slowly assembling
links in his Butler family chain but is struggling to link a child, given as
grandson of his great grandparent, to them via his great grandmother.?
As always, Irish records can be very frustrating to trace and/or link up.

We next meet on Wednesday 10th April at 2.00 pm
