Looking for descendants of Daniel Lewis (1792-1866). His children who stayed in Wales were Sarah, Daniel, David, Ivor and Lewis. Those children who went to the US (Ohio) were Howell, Rees, Thomas and Alfred.

Sorry, Robert, mine are farther back than yours in Wales - 1600s.

I know my blood comes from Wales on my mother's side. I mistakenly thought when my results came in, I would learn more from the different projects. I feel like a persona non gratis because i'm a woman. None of the projects have any help for me. None of my brother's matches have the family surname. Are we orphans who just happen to have a family tree handed down from the 5th century? Did everybody connected to us die out? I was so excited thinking I would learn about my Welsh connections (mother's side), I've started to learn Welsh. But I'm alone with no connections. What do I not understand? Do you have to be a geneticist to get anywhere in any of these projects? When I finished college, there weren't any courses in genetics. I feel abandoned. Would someone please "adopt" me and tell me what's going on here, cause I'm lost. Please.

Thanks for that Amy. I am unable to access your tree on FTDNA, so I am assuming we do not have a match on this site. Our links must go back a long way. Do you have a tree on Ancestry? It would be nice to see if I can find a connection. My Welsh connection is through my great great grandfather, Thomas Picton Davies - he is my brick wall. We think that he left Wales at some point in the early 19th Century for Jamaica to be a sugar planter. He died in Jamaica, his wife had also died but her identity is unknown, somehow his three daughters made their way back to Wales where they appear on the 1871 Wales Census. So I have ended up with a broad tree but after nearly 20 years have not been able to find my Welsh roots, through Thomas Picton Davies. I have a tree on Ancestry named "Osborne Giddings" If there is a way to contact you, I can send you a link to my tree. Best wishes, Eleanor

I have a tree on Ancestry and I do have a tree here... I'm surprised you can't access it? I gave "advanced access." Hmm.

It says our only shared surnames are French and Williams, which would definitely be pretty distant. Any Welsh family I have, that I know of, are from the 1100s-1200s. They were Normans. But they seemed insanely cool so I wanted to come and see if I could learn more?

If you are happy to do so, go to Account Settings - Privacy and Sharing - Family Tree Sharing and select 'All FTDNA Users' This should give me access to your tree. At present, if I click on to view your tree it says that I do not have access. Could you let me know your User Name on Ancestry, so that I can search for your tree? My user name on Ancestry is roseannek1 I have French and Williams on my father's Cornish side. Often the Cornish migrated to Wales to work in the mines.

I would be most grateful for any information regarding my ancestors, especially Henry Morgan born about 1680. His son Henry J. Morgan (A linen draper) writes in his will, "I Henry Morgan of St. A Brides" etc. Henry went to Bristol and had his family there. His grand-daughter (1754-1782) Jane married Iltyd Nichols; she is remembered by a memorial stone at St Catwigs, Llanmaes.

How is it this Agency claiming to be genetic genealogists will provide certain people with clear concise results and interpretations but, others who actually have ROYAL BLOOD are being used to benefit this Agencies own personal agenda and projects and is collecting the use of the Family information for deceptive results for that DNA and those ROYAL LINE's, see all after confirming my families MORGAN DNA of ROYALTY, Miles Morgan project was shut down and without answers provided adequately to this consumer who paid for Big Y test and Family Finder after the director called my phone asking if we could auto transfer that DNA from We are very hurt and upset, and wish moral people would stand up and be honest... Sincerely William Henry Morgan and Lewis Rudolph Morgan direct root to "Y Adam".

I've hit a brick wall with genealogy. Is there no way to find connections through these projects? Will we ever be told the purpose and results of these projects???

Hello, my Big Y matches me with the Howell family from Wales. I also seem to match some with the Thomas and Jones families from Wales. So it seems that I might have some connection with Wales. My ancestor, Samuel Marksbury I, came to Amherst VA in 1680. He did not write down where he came from. I also cannot seem to find which ship brought him to VA. My haplogroup is R-ZP147. It is apart of the Z2396 Swedish cluster that invaded early Britain. My Gedmatch kit number is T613798.

My MT Haplogroup is H1C1. HVR1&2 Matches show 2 in Wales. Is this of use, Suzanne?

My results haven't come in yet, but Karen & I have the same mother. I'm so happy to see those markers in Wales. Bryan Sykes, of Hebrides & formerly of Oxford, wrote that blood type B is found in a small area of Wales about where one of the markers is, and that's so satisfying, because I got my blood type B from our mother, who was AB. Wales is in my blood! And I have some CDs to help me learn the basics of the language :) :) :)
