As a Ancestry.com "Matthews Family" researcher for over 25 years, I have now come to the conclusion that only DNA is the key to opening the trail of my Matthews Tree of the past,and for me to find the true origins of my 10th generation back in time great-grand-father William Mathews/Matthewes/Matthews, he had a wife by the name of Jane/Jeane and they had four (4) children i.e.: William, Thomas,Caleb, & Elizabeth, all the children were born in the 1600's, in the New England & New Haven Ct. Area.
My Matthews DNA has been 37 Marker tested, and now proven to be directly connected to the son Caleb Mathews, the son of William and Jane Mathews, 1600's NH.Ct, and the great-grand-father of Thomas A. Edison. As an attempt to find others of this DNA family, that would be DNA connected to this William Mathews, I am asking any living European Mathews/Matthews/Matthewes male that feels there could be a connection to this 1600's Mathews Family, to submit his 25-37 Marker DNA to the FamilytreeDNA site or AncestryDNA site, with the request to contact me MarcTmatt59, to have our DNA compared for a possible blood line connection, and if we are found to be DNA connected I will include you in the to be published genealogical "My William & Jane Mathews of the 1600's New Haven, Ct." Family Tree Book, and you will get a free copy for your files.
