In Topic: DNA

21 January 2014 - 08:50 AM

I have been thinking of DNA testng for a while but I am female and I know my paternal grandfather was illegimate ( reputedly his fathers name was Smith ! ).
My brother is the last male in the my line as dad's brothers only had girls, my dad and his male siblings are all deceased. It is an unusual surname of Wooltorton in Norfolk and I am as far back as 1700 there. Not sure if my brother would do the test either.
So what would I gain if anything?

Hello Alfred, OK thank you. It is as I have found that you do have to change each individual. cannot block them to change to occupant etc. I have never decided whether to add the servants to the database as individuals or not, any thoughts on that?
best wishes Dolly

following this question which is obviously relating to census info. Do you have to go into edit on the "share this information" on each person mentioned in a census and change it from "witness" to occupant, son, dau, servant etc etc.
any suggestions please

I would recommend watching the FREE RM webinars, they take some patience and time but you can walk away and take note of the time you have watched to and you can go back to that time

I have updated to RM6 from RM3 and my sources ( for 900 people on my main tree ) are in a muddle all under citations I think and needing to be revamped to Master sources. This is the Webinar I have watched and probably the most important for accurately recording sources and citations. Maybe ( definitely) I didn't do that right in the first place. It would have saved time

So my suggestion is practice on a "pretend tree" first after watching some Webinars.
