Hello! I joined this group after noticing that there was this group here on FamilyTree while reading up on the posts one night on Facebook. Being American, I am a healthy mix of a lot of wonderful things: Russian, Jewish, African American, Norwegian, and Balkan and Scottish to name a few. I'm not sure how to go about looking at my DNA to determine Traveller, Roma, etc., as this is totally out of my league. My family immigrated to the US from Germany and from north of Norway. My Scottish side has been here forever it seems. I suspect there is more to the story than what has been told to me though. I like to say that I don't have specific questions as I'm a walking question mark. My mother came from a very dysfunctional family, she says, so she does not talk about her mother except in negative terms. But her mother is the one I am most fascinated with as her face looked as mine does now when we would both get angry or defiant, and her face tells a story. Her mother's side is where I suspect the Roma, and there may be Sami as well on the Norwegian side. Sorry for the long intro, but ta da! Here I am. Thank you for adding me.

Hi I am from Australia. I share the names Burtenshaw, Street , Smith, McLauchlan?, Jamieson and wonder if I am part of the group. These names are from both sides, mother and father.

Hi Megan! Looking at the DNA Results, I do not see your data. Have you not joined this project? If you have, then you must not have your permissions level set where the admins or the rest of us can look at the data to help you. Maybe it is listed under one of your ancestral surnames? It also helps if you post your FTDNA sample number with your question/comment.

Hello, I am looking for Rom & Traveller connections. My maiden name is Teague, and I have the following surnames in my family that might be connected to some of you.... (direct lines include Townsend, King, Rhinehart, Taylor, Long, Greene, Campbell, Coppersmith, Adams, Booth, King, Morrison, Cartwright, Fowler, McGuire, Wood, Osborne, Collins, Smith, and there are many more... a few others by marriage like Boswell, Lee, Stanley, etc.). I am not sure if these are my Romani lines or if they are simply surnames that Romani have used, but many of these are known Romani/Traveller names, and I match kits with a few confirmed Romani/Travellers. My kit numbers are..... A256212 Andrea - Ancestry (andieblue123c) and my father's kit...M411339. Our genesis kits are PS7470539 Andrea Teague MV8915544 Dad............... Thanks!

that's very interesting! I wonder where we match. Do you know much about your ancestors? I've found a LOT more surnames since making this original post. Hello there, cousin!

I joined the group based on suspicion that my great great grandfather may be somehow linked to Irish Travelers. He moved to Chicago and worked as a tinner, as did his uncle. The family remaining in Co. Waterford near Dungarven appeared to have settled down as I have seen them in early 1900s censuses but occasionally have other household members with different surnames listed as "travelers' on the census itself. There is other evidence to suggest they may have been travelers. Surnames of interest are Melican and Stack, my great great grandfathers death cert lists his mother as an Irish woman with the name of Kate Hapnick which I assume to be inaccurate. Her records in Waterford at my g g grandfathers baptism are on damaged paper and only her first name Catherine can be read. My GEDmatch kit number is A038014.

Hi there, we seem to be distantly related. I'm sure I have some traveller heritage through my Doran family from Tipperary.

Hello! I'm H068865 Gedmatch. I am from the western part of Spain, which used to be Celtic. According to Gedmatch I have a pretty high percentage of "Atlantic", so it probably can come from the Celts. Does anyone have any coincidence with me?
