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!

first - perhaps Y-DNA testing would reveal a likely surname for his father? second - there's a group that seems to know a fair amount about UK adoptions - familytreeforum.com.

Hello and thank you for replying. We have done the Y DNA testing and few close matches so far at 67 markers with three at a GD of 7 at that level. Two have the surname Arnold and the other has Arnold connections along his paternal line which we're following up on. However, given the GD these connections are potentially quite distant, I believe. Thank you for the link I will follow up with that forum.

Hello again! For what it's worth, the SNP testing has come back and my father in law is R-L48.

Why do the Map Matches shown 'Private'? There is no point in hiding obscuring ourselves in public. Barry P.

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 (frayn@carrollrpl.com.au)

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 ”

your mother and all her children will have the same mtDNA, barring mutation (unlikely) - so no need to repeat mtDNA testing on them if you have been tested. mtDNA passes mother to her offspring. If your father has a surviving sister, or his sister's children, they would have his mtDNA. mtDNA has very limited usefulness from a genetic genealogy perspective.

Y-DNA passes from father to son. If you have the money, and they have the willingness, sure, test the distinct male lines. You might enroll them in their respective surname projects - discounted testing is often available within a project, and the volunteer admin may be able to best tell you what level of testing to do.

atDNA (Family Finder) works best with people from the oldest generations. I gather that no one survives from your parents' generation? Three children from from one set of parents will represent about 85% of their genome (on average). Testing close cousins presents an opportunity to sort out the source of matches among ancestral lines. For instance, if your maternal cousin tests, and matches you over a segment, but another person matches you over the same segment but not your maternal cousin - the new person must be a paternal cousin.

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?

Family finder is fine for a project. You can see who else matches you and is also in the project by following these instructions: (1) Go to ‘myFTDNA’ in the top left of your FTDNA tool bar (2) click on ‘Family Finder’ and then ‘Advanced Matches’ (3) put a tick in the ‘Family Finder’ box and then select the ‘Hampshire England’ project. Any persons matching you will be listed if they are in the project and their ancestors came from Hampshire England. It is also helpful if enter your information regarding your ‘Most Distant Ancestors’ and also update your ancestral ‘Surnames’. This will enable others, whom you match, to compare their ancestral names with yours. To do this log into your FTDNA results and click on ‘Mange Personal Information’ listed on the left hand side of your FTDNA Home Page under ‘Your Account’. Once into that screen click on ‘Genealogy’. From this screen you can click on ‘Most Distant Ancestors’ and enter the information and also ‘Surnames’ to enter all of your ancestral names and where they came from.
