So sorry gang. I’m new to posting in this forum. I am a descendant of John Knight 1748-1774 and Rachel Anderson. I just punched a y 67 kit for my male Knight cousin. We are going to trace back to Captain Peter Knight 1620. John Knight’s son Jonathan Knight 1781-1852 and Elizabeth Tucker 1789-1853 migrated from Georgia to Florida and are listed in the Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia Vol. III page175 .vol IX page page 523.

Hi James, I just ordered a y 67 kit for my male cousin of the Knight line. I will let you know when results are in. Hopefully we will share many matches. I have tested my mother (Elaine Knight) and myself on Ancestry. I will try to upload those files during the week when support is open.

Hello Patricia, I have my kit being processed at Ancestry right now. They have it in the final stages of the process and have an expected completion of Aug 8. Many of my cousins are there from the line I have mentioned above. I am anxious to get to use the DNA Circles I have heard of. Our connection is so far back I doubt it will show up their. The threshold would have to be lowered for it to show as a match. The only way to do that, that I know of, is at Gedmatch.com. Tina Peddie, admin here, has mentioned Gedmatch recently in a post here.

I have just now seen your post, FTDNA's notifications do not always tell you when someone has commented on a new post so it is best to like a comment of the person you are directing a comment to. Just an FYI.

Our O'Steen group is trying to establish that we are Knight descendants through "y" DNA. Will you be sure to have your cousin's DNA added to the Knight Family Project Group on this site.? No offense intended but we Have Jonathan as one of the Knights that could be the missing father of our ancestor, John Riley O'Steen born 1824 Ware Co. Georgia.

I had 4 matches of 93 tested in this GED group. One had a tree attached. They had a Waters line that ties to other Waters matches I have found, these are all beyond my brick wall but helping to establish a pattern.

Is the Gedmatch a specific DNA test? I don't know if I have one. I have taken the Ancestry DNA test and I have the Y700 Family Tree test. Is the Gedmatch information found in any of those tests?

I have a downloaded document that says GED file. Would that be what you need?

On Facebook, there is: WIREGRASS GEORGIA GENEALOGY RESEARCH. And now the new WIREGRASS GEORGIA DNA. And being created 'as we speak' by Gedmatch, is the new feature on Gedmatch, their Ancestry-Projects, and ours will be 'WIREGRASS GEORGIA DESCENDANTS.'
August 5 @ 1:28pm
*Hello All! I see alot of familiar names here, people who are also on the Facebook page WIREGRASS GEORGIA GENEALOGY RESEARCH. We have just created a new FB page for anyone interested, WIREGRASS GEORGIA DNA. Not everyone who has done DNA has done it thru FTDNA and isnt on this page with us, and FB has alot of activity. Please join us there if you'd like. Also if you've done DNA testing anywhere, be sure to join GEDMATCH www.gedmatch.com .. Many of us are there as well. Anyone who has tested thru ANY company can join Gedmatch *upload your raw data dna file*, and you will find matches from ALL the different testing companies. We have also just created a new ANCESTRY PROJECT AT GEDMATCH. It's a whole new feature there. It should be up and running soon. Ask if you have any questions.* My email is: tinapeddie@yahoo.com. ((My WG GA ancestors: Jones, Moore, Mattox, Strickland, Overstreet, McKenzie, Hardeman, etc))
