MY FAMILY LINES OF INTEREST AND GENETIC GENEALOGY
This page covers Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA; following direct/"pure" paternal lines from the father – the patriline) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA; following direct/"pure" maternal lines from the mother – the matriline) on my family tree and indicates their descendants where this information may help others research their genetic genealogy. It also outlines where others may be able to help me – and where I am willing to cover the costs of having the testing conducted. See Genetic Genealogy for some background information and Do You Have the Right DNA?
Where I Can Help You
If you may be descended from any of the following, I can help you with your genealogy research using my DNA:
- On the paternal line (Y-DNA) from Thomas Griffith (1819-1893 – #1 in the Figure below), Thomas Griffith (1789-1864), or William Griffith (1760-?) from Bangor, Caernarvonshire – see Griffith Line Y-DNA
- On the maternal line (mtDNA) from Sarah Emily Dumbell (1848-1922), Sarah Aspinall (1826-bef. 1861 – #8 in the Figure below), Hannah Lightfoot Mason (~1826-1865), or Agnes Tuck (~1778-?) from Liverpool, Lancashire and Chester, Cheshire – see Corlett-Dumbell-Aspinall-Mason Line mtDNA
- On the maternal line (mtDNA) from Elizabeth Grieve (1858-1939), Mary Ann Coulthard (1828-1908 – #16 on the Figure below), Elizabeth Hetherington (1786-1849) or Sarah Dixon (1755-1849) from Wetheral / Cumwhinton / Castle Sowerby in Cumberland, Liverpool, Lancashire, and Birkenhead, Cheshire – see Beer-Grieve-Coulthard-Hetherington-Dixon mtDNA for which haplotype we have.
Can You Help Me?
I'd love to hear from anyone who may be willing to provide a cheek swab or saliva sample (it depends which testing facility is used) for Y-DNA and mtDNA to expand Lines #4, #5, #11, #12. See Do You Have the Right DNA?, which I'm willing to cover the costs for. You will retain "ownership" and control of your DNA and will have full access to the results.
