    1841 Look Up Please CLARK

    Thanks, SusieQ. Although it is very possible that there is a common relative back maybe a few hundred years before the 1830s, I have never found a connecting thread between the Bourn and Fulbourn families. And the Fulbourn Clark(e) family group seem to have extensive CofE backgrounds. However...

    1841 Look Up Please CLARK

    Re: 1841 Look Up Please CLARK(E) Thank you so much for the efforts you have made. Yes, I've looked at these Clark(e)s from Bourn before. The Richards there can be found in records for UK after my Richard sailed for Australia, November 1856 arriving Feb 1857, so I've discounted him at Bourn...

    1841 Look Up Please CLARK

    Oh dear, I see just now what is happening, Amanda. All my fault. I didn't realize that this thread was absent an update. I have tried to update the various places I have placed queries. I'm sorry you have been so kindly looking in the wrong corner. The fact is that I have discovered that...

    1841 Look Up Please CLARK

    Hi Amanda, Richard is a known NPE. No baptism never located. But many other records either blank, or "father unknown". He did have a younger brother Alfred, whose baptism record exists = "father unknown" also. The family was pretty much located around Fulboirn, Cambs. Thanks.

    1841 Look Up Please CLARK

    Thank you, Susie Q. It is very kind of you to take the time to give me this information. Sadly, I do not think that my Richard was from Bourn. The Richard that was part of the Bourn family was still shown on the 1861 census, whereas my Richard had already sailed to Australia in Nov 1857...

    DNA and Family History

    !! Funny. I'm not a scientifically minded person, but I am enthralled by the advances and what DNA is able to tell us. Of course, a 'genealogical DNA test' such as I have had done does not give the 'confidential' information such as could/would be used to determine susceptibility to disease...

    DNA and Family History

    I thought I'd give an update on my DNA results "for the record" here. I've done about as much as I can with Y-DNA and autosomal (family finder). My (Y) Haplogroup is R1b1a2a1a1b3c (Z49+ Z142+ L562+ L2+) at 111 markers. I have also tested many other SNPs (negative results). I have no Y111...

    Cambridgeshire CLARK MORLEY MANSFIELD SCARR

    I am researching Alfred CLARK, my G G Uncle, who was born in or around Fulbourn, Cambs UK 1836 and died at Impington Cambs in 1920. I would really like to find some family history of his descendants, in the hope that they may be able to shed light on my G GF Richard CLARKE (with the E)...

    DNA and Family History

    Hello again: Thanks for the note, Ms Fox. I'm still (not so) patiently waiting for my Y-DNA and MtDNA results. Because I have a 'non-paternity' event at G GF level, chasing my surname in a project will not get me too far, unless the father was also of the same family name although not...

    Catherine DELANEY, Templederry, cousin of Anne and Mary TIERNEY

    Many many thanks for your kind assistance. I will attach the 'Church Baptism Record' (fingers crossed) which seems to show everything I know. However, the mother is shown as 'Delaney' even though I am fairly sure that she was a CORMACK. I will look at the Griffiths again, but if you look...

    DNA and Family History

    You're absolutely right about your possible more recent ancestors, and I think that this is the beauty of DNA for Family History. I have seen at these various websites, and read elsewhere, about how unexpected family lines have turned up only a few generations back. I find it all very...

    DNA and Family History

    Hello Joyce: Many thanks for the note. I've not an academic, nor a scientist, so anything I say cannot be "used in evidence against me." :D I am a 'reader' though. I've been beating a path to the Library, and the books I have found very useful are : "Trace your Roots with DNA" (Smolenyak and...

    DNA and Family History

    :rolleyes: I'm a little surprised that there doesn't appear to be any DNA/Genealogy discussions at FHUK. Or have I missed the threads somehow?

    DNA and Family History

    I don't live in the UK. It is probably commonly known there that (from my reading) there are quite a few Viking sites to the east or north east of Cambridgeshire over by Thetford and Norwich. Perhaps I'll qualify for a helmet with horns? ;) I've been looking at the East Anglia DNA project...
