DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with David or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with David:

My husband's earliest Tomlinson immigrant was born in Ireland 1800-1803. He first appears in Madison Co., Alabama, in 1827 when he married Elvira Adams. The Adams were in South Carolina by 1780. My son has had DNA testing and the results don't indicate the Tomlinson surname at all, rather KEY, KAYE, KEE, KEYE, ETC. [GM201]. James Tomlinson could have changed his surname to Tomlinson when he left Ireland, or he could have been adopted, or one of his ancestors could have changed the surname. Do you have any advice for people with such problems? Do you have Key, Kaye, Kee, Keye, etc. surnames in your Adoption Project that may fit into this scenario. Many thanks for any consideration.

Hello Gail, surnames that are found when tracing a birth family are not exactly names 'in a project' but are rather specific to the families being traced. If your husband's earliest relative was born around 1800 then for you son I imagine this would be 3rd or 4th grandfather level. Depending on which DNA test your son took it is possible that recognised surnames might not go back as far as that. My experience of DNA is that there are a huge number of 3rd to 6th cousins, none of which have surnames I recognise, in fact the only name I ever recognised from DNA testing was a first cousin. (That I did not know about). I am however by no means even slightly expert in DNA but if you were to move this to G2G I am sure you would get some response from someone who is. Regards, David.
Love that this project has been started. Part of my family on my paternal grandmother's side of the family immigrated over to America from Ireland. I believe they came from Antrim, Ireland. I've always been interested in researching my family roots back to Ireland, just haven't known where to begin.

Hi Most Industrious Project Coordinator Ever,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  • If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some feedback on the use of google group and discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, Just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely, Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project

Greetings Glorious Leader,

I think you know the answer to these questions due to your all seeing eye. The only comment that I would make is that I NEVER use Google Groups - in fact I detest them. Discord is the ONLY way (or the odd personal email of course).

Bye for now David

Because in addition to WikiTree I have a fairly heavy involvement in Find A Grave I am often in graveyards contemplating things past and present and experiencing the sadness of unloved and unkept graves. Recently a poem about this formed so I wrote it down.
Warm in a heart you lie
Remembered with fondness
Until that heart too passes
And the memories fade
Cold in your grave you lie
Perhaps in history you lie
Until that history changes
And you, once fêted, now are vilified
Yet nothing changed
Cold in your grave you lie
Cold in your grave you lie
Named for eternity
Or 'til neglect and decay step in
And erase the memory of you.
Cold in your grave you lie.
