the parents of my g grandmother Fredericka Eugenie krohn b 16 feb 1851 Gothenburg Sweden. her mother nnwas named as charlotte ruth with another name after the word ruth. she named her father as frantz petersen

on her 2 marriages in Vestfold Norway. the confusion arises as my dna match is for per olaf Petersen. carl Petersen is supposed to be her father. I can,t find any family on any of them only Fredericka as she died in Victoria as Fredericka krohn. I think I,ve been all over Sweden- Norway and finland searching for them so will really appreciate any information. thank you anne steel b krohn

my son

sadly I write this as I try to accept the death of our son Anthony craig steel b Brisbane 16 feb. 1961 died in his sleep 17 -3-2018. he was a very brave man who faced a terrible disease called amyloidosis plus neuropathy with courage. he accepted what was in front of him and never complained and kept a positive attitude right up until he died. I,m proud to have had him as our son. anne

my latest results from the dna test have been amazing. I recommend anyone to have it done. I only took the mtdna with family anything else you have to wait sometimes for everything to fall into place, but believe me it,s worth good luck to all who make the effort to do the test anne

brereton of harthill

to edmondsallan who replied to mjl. your Brereton info is incorrect. Thomas Brereton b 1742 is the twin brother of William Brereton b 1742. . I have a Thomas Brereton m harthill 1805 to Hannah Vickers. which Thomas Brereton this is I,m not on my wiki tree free family tree my g grandfather Thomas is left out. I know there are so many that it easy to get mixed up. so that makes dates very important. cheers anne steel
