|About Climbing Our Family Tree
Dear Cousins (and cousins of cousins)
I have set up this TribalPages Tree so that we have a place to make it easier to share our families
and to validate data that I have collected. We will wander around up and down branches and twigs
and all over the place! (And with the odd leap into unrelated trees too!) It is always a work in
progress. I WARMLY WELCOME CORRECTIONS AND UPDATES.
I wish to express HUGE THANKS to the many, many people over the years who have come into my life and
generously shared our families in common: 'tis much appreciated.
Had your DNA done? We have ...

24 May 2018 - Due to the new privacy laws for EU, I've now privatised all living persons in this
tree - including signed in Guests. Since I'm going back to working on the tree offline, I've changed
those few with Member status back to Guest, as any changes you made would be lost on the next GEDCOM
update if I neglected to add the change to my PC. (And still working on that second fantasy novel!)

Gosh, I've been all over the place, working out our DNA matches. I did not get a match with my
husband, though we are 6th cousins on paper via our mutual HUNT/McGUINESS ancestors. On GEDmatch, I
lowered the segment size to one (the default is 7) and then we had two small matches on chromosome 6
- one was only 1,2cM, the other 2.3 cM. What a relief. I'm giving myself until next week, and then I
must get back into writing. [... edited ...] I will not abandon family history this time. I'm adding
our direct ancestors to WikiTree.

At last, I really am planning to spend a little time each week on family history. I have years and
years of papers, plus emails spread over various computers to 'process'. I have a lot of my own
blood lines to add,too. I will work backwards through the stack of emails I have. I believe that
will involve the MACKAY line ( my husband's people).
I still need to tidy up the format on old notes and move more marriage source notes to the bride.
