DNA is an amazing tool for genealogists – when used properly. Advances in the technology have provided us a much more useful tool than a decade ago. I am particularly interested in hearing from you if you have done a DNA test that connects you to one of three individuals:

  • Mary Toliver (GEDmatch kit #HM7205769, 23andME “Mary Toliver”)
    – looking specifically for a DNA connection to someone with surname Dearnaley, Dernaly, Dernly, or a variant.
  • Carol Stevens (23andME “Carol Stevens”)
    – looking for connections to surnames Tuggle, Beard, Gates, McCormick.
  • Carol Bennette (GEDmatch kit #T454291)
    – looking for connections to surnames Norman, Warwick, Huddleston, Bardin.
