Finding the Sisters of my Direct Lines for Clues to DNA Connections
Following my own advice and working on the daughter lines of my GGGG Grandparents.(eventually I will do this for my 5th greats) Had so many names not in my direct line among those with a large portion of DNA matching close enough to put us as connected around the GGG or GGGG and started noticing surnames that were repeating. So now I am going in search of those names. Have already found where a sister of my Frizzell married into the Elliot family. That may be the reason for several occurrences of the Elliott surname in a few of my matches files. This is not an easy process. DNA by itself is meaningless if you can't find the connection and back it with a paper trail. It's not like the DNA linking someone to a crime where you have the crime. So now I think I have about 20 specific DNA projects I am working on to find cousins.....and then there are the other priorities in my life which come first. I so wish I was more organized but I guess that is something for which we all strive.
