Hi All,
I'm trying to tie up a few loose ends with my family tree, so if there are any other Minchin descendants out there who have had a DNA test done could you please drop me a line.
Cheers,
Pete.

Hi,

I am new here and unsure if you want a PM or how to send a PM

I have had my DNA completed on MYheritage and definitely link to another family where our common ancestor is James and Elizabeth Minchin who arrived on the Caroline 10 Oct 1829

I am also awaiting my DNA return from Ancestry

How can I help?

Peter,

This topic is a little dated so you may have moved on but just in case, I am aware of 8 Minchin descendants who have had DNA tests done

Hi Jolyon and Neil,
Thanks for letting me know about the tests that have been done and I'd be keen to know when you get your ancestry test results, Jolyon so I can compare the results. Although I was brought up to believe I was also descended from James and Elizabeth Minchin the DNA evidence seems to be telling me another story! I will always consider the Minchins part of my family but I am keen to find out who my biological Great-grandfather was, unfortunately it's a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack at the moment.
Cheers,
Pete.

Hi Peter,

This is not impossible at all.

I had to find out who my grandfather was and spent years on it. These days there are facebook groups that specialise in exactly this process. Look up DNA Detectives on facebook, intro your self, ask for help in arranging your matches on ancestry and dig into the information in a new way. There are some people in that group who are nominated as search angels, one of them will help.

The DNA detectives page helps a lot of adoptees and NPE people (Non parent event). Often the NPE is a grandparent so a great grandparent is not in the realms of impossibility

Regards

Jolyon

Hi Neil,

Thanks again.

I would be keen to know the names of those 8 and the sites they are on so that when My Ancestry result is in ( about 6 weeks) I want to make sure we connect. It will be satisfying to see confirmation of my research back 200 years via DNA.

The one Minchin descended family I link to on MyHeritage is the Glenister family and they have a direct pedigree to James and Elizabeth Minchin. Any others would provide solid proof that it is not a link from somewhere else.

Please pass on my details to your 8 people to see if they are happy to contact me.

Regards

Jolyon

Joylon,

5 of the 8 are managed by Sarah Glenister. Contact me privately (just google me and you will find my website) if the others aren't obvious when you get you results.
