Hello Group! I am researching the ancestry of my father in law who's own dad (Albert Edward Spencer born 14th July 1918 in WInchester) was adopted. We are trying to identify who his birth family were. We know Alberts mum was Kate Spencer, born 24th December 1884 in Andover and her family came from the Basingstoke area going back as far as I've found ca. 1750 on her paternal line. Surnames here are Spencer, Martin, Lawrence, Knight. Her ancestry comes from the Test Valley on her maternal side to around the same time. Surnames here include Shears, Shepherd, Tibble, Candy, Figus, Blake and Brown. We have completed a Y DNA test to 67 markers and are awaiting SNP info. At the moment data is suggesting a link to the Arnold surname but thats about all we know. We are all looking forward to learning more!

“Are there any among you who have PYCROFT, MARSHALL, SPACKMAN, CATE growing in your trees? I am most interested in the families who came to the October 1825 marriage in Alverstoke.,”

Hi, We have a couple of confusing options in my Hutchinson family tree. They emigrated to Australia c 1880-1890. Some death certs give location of birth of great grandfather Richard Crowcroft Hutchinson as Aldershot, therefore Hampshire but family anecdotes has always been Yorkshire, Lancashire or potential Northumbria. If Hampshire, then we cannot find other parts of the puzzle that fit. Other potential names: Yorkshire - Crowcroft (seems to fit best); Lancashire - Tetlow and we haven't yet researched the Northumbria possibility. So I am hoping this project may help us prove or disprove some options and possibly help someone else in the process. Cheers, Fran (email@example.com)

“Hello, I am a New member. My name is Robert Clarke. My FTDNA Kit is still in the mail. I ordered Family Finder, mt Full Sequence, and Y-DNA111 for myself. My question is what should I order for the rest of my family? This is what I think I should order, mt Full Sequence for my sister Mary, and 2 kits for my brothers daughters, 3 kits for Great nieces, Y111 for nephew, 3 brother in laws, Y67 for some other in law nephews. What do you think? My Family Tree DNA Kit is 427341. Father William Clarke born April 18, 1908 Dunfermline, Scotland, ( Father John S Clarke born August 14, 1887 Stirling, Scotland, Mother Annie Thomson Fraser Born October 18, 1886 Kilmarnock, Scotland ) Mother Violet Borsey born November 28, 1911 (her mother Violet Ann Sandiford born January 31, 1891Farnsworth, England, farther James Borsey born Febuary 5, 1890 Ashton-Under-Lyne, England ) I have 3 sisters and 3 brothers all born in Providence, Rhode Island, USA ””

“I will be sure to update my public tree - but my great grandparents were James Blake b circa 1831 in West Tytherley and Charlotte Bennett Blake b circa 1841 in Ashley. Is there something specific I need to do in order to update my DNA results into the project? And are the "Family Finder" results adequate for the DNA study that is being done?”
