“I'm just wondering if any Allen Family members, other than myself, have ties to New Mexico. My g-grandfather settled there, and some of his children may have had families we know nothing about.... big surprise. Never hurts to put a question out and see if anybody replies. Thanks”

I had my father, Edward Allen's YDNA-67 tested. It seems to lead to William Allen 1725 in Virginia, but I can not find any links to how he ended up in Brunswick County from the Virginia line. Should I do more testing?

My earliest known Allen ancestor is Drury Allen born @1720, lived in New Hanover Co, NC, which became Brunswick County in 1764. Possible father or uncle was Elkanah Allen b. @ 1695 with wife Martha. From Drury and wife Margaret came son, Elkanah. Three more generations of Elkanahs and they have moved to Wilmington NC across the river from Brunswick Co.

I was born January 13, 1950. Birth mom was separated from her husband at the time when she became pregnant me. Her last name she used at hospital was Allen (not sure of the spelling). I was born in New York City. BM had two previous sons. She gave me the name Louise. I was adopted through Louise Wise Services in New York. Turned out very well for me. If this info might ring a bell with anyone please contact me, thank you!

“Had a question I guess for the group as a whole. I am waiting for my kit, but in the mean time what are your suggestions that I can do here to make searching for my genetic matches easier. I am in the process of following my Paternal line and already have a tree set up on a separate site. Suggestions?”

Well, my YDNA 111 test results are in, and I guess they're interesting... but I don't understand them at all. Which is no surprise to be honest. Hopefully I'll find tome to really take a look at them, but any help would be appreciated. Eric I know you have helped me in the past, maybe you could take a peek and give me some direction? Thank you in advance

Hi all! My 2x grandpa was Thomas Allan, born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada in 1845 at the age of 13. He settled in Shelburne Ontario and married Elizabeth Madill. I have it a brick wall with him.as Canada did't keep records yet..I know how his life ended very near by to me but no Idea who his parents were..it is family lore that he lost 2 sisters on the trip over but I can't find evidence of his parents or siblings It was a huge family with some moving to the US so if this sounds familiar to anyone message me.
