I'm coming up on 30 years, and (sadly), I could have written this letter. If I'd felt like this in the early years, I'm sure I would have found another career. But, having to experience this, now, when I should be approaching a happy ending, is ripping me to shreds. Kudos, and empathy to the person who wrote this.

In the past year, I’ve uploaded my 23andme autosomal raw data to all Gedmatch admixture calculators, DNA Tribes and Family Tree DNA (where I have mtDNA results on file).  I sought out guidance on the accuracy of the tools tha...

About a month ago, I made a commitment to updating my (Mostly) African American Funeral Programs database every Friday, however, for the past two weeks, my Friday schedule hasn't allowed for it.  In fact, the weekends have be...

Wow. I just finished reading this lengthy, well-written essay on the history of Louisburg, the town of my ancestors; and I must say, it's left me feeling "some kind of way".  When I first began reading the article, I was grat...

Hi, Renate, Thank you for contacting me.  After looking down the family line I see that you are correct that this is not the William from 1720 but I will check further down the line and see if a grandson may be the writer of these letters.  Since the geographic location seems to be the exact same location of the family area. It would stand to reason that the property would have been passed down and there are many William Eatons on  our family tree! lol Now to start checking birthdates! Thank you so very much!
