Recently retired and starting to tackle my "brick wall" genealogy problems in northern New York and New England. Also, planning to travel to ancestral homelands in England, northern Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands. Especially interested in making contact with anyone who has my surname or any variant of it, and has Y-chromosome DNA test results available, or might be interested in taking the Y-DNA test. Have also taken the mtDNA and Family Finder tests through FamilyTreeDNA.
