SNGF-Correction and Addition to “Your Maternal Grandfather’s Paternal Line”

The end of January Randy Seaver at Genea-Musing had us play a little detective game to find possible men in our Maternal Grandfather’s Paternal Line.

There is one thing I forgot to post and it was number one on Randy’s list….my glasses must not have been anywhere near my eyes!

 What is your mother’s father’s patrilineal line? That is, his father’s father’s father’s … back to the most distant male ancestor in that line?

Now that I have all that out-of-the-way. The addition to the story.

I commented in the original posting that my Uncle Milton (Mom’s brother) was having his DNA tested for this line. The results came back today and I am truly the 8th great-granddaughter of Roger and Abigail Ufford Terrell.  There are a few question that remain in this tree and hopefully in time we will be able to fill in all the blanks.

This has been a fun journey.  I am wondering if I could get my spouse to do one for his family as there remains  a huge question about 4 generations back. It is a question about parentage of one of his grandfathers. Hummm 😀

Happy Hunting!

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However imagine if you added some great photos or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the best in its field.

    Great blog!

    • Hi
      I include photos when and where I can. This one I don’t have photos of many of these folks. I had actually not thought of putting photos in a lineage setting. Great Idea! Thanks for stopping buy and saying HI!

      Have a great day!
