Great article via +Independent.ie - Could you be the heir of the unclaimed fortune of a long-lost relative? 

+Finders International Probate Genealogists are searching for the relatives of Kathleen Hilda Ryan, who died in Greenwich in 2013 at the age of 81. Kathleen died intestate, and never had any children. Can you help?

When searching Ancestry's "Pennsylvania, Birth Records, 1906-1908" (added to its databases last week), keep in mind that the informant was usually the attending midwife or physician. There are a lot of spelling and factual errors on these birth certificates, and many have preceeding or following affidavits (many indexed) detailing requested corrections. If not blank, the reverse sides are available; the control boxes show when copies were issued.
The database year range is small, but reflects most of the 1906-1909 year range released by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as of this year. Luckily, delayed birth certificates were filed by actual birth year, so are included.

If you are interested in genealogy research on a shoestring budget, check out www.wikitree.org.
And while you are at it, let me know if there is a "John Sharp" born abt 1805 in NY, living in Ontario, Canada and Michigan, in your records.
Thanks

My father in law has one of the "new discoveries" which is ancestry's attempt at triangulation. I am working through it trying to find a good strategy to figure out the connection, he shares DNA with 5 cousin matches who all have the same common ancestor from the 1850s in West Virginia. They give a cool map showing where thaT ancestor lived, would be nice to have on the same map pins showing where ancestors in my FIL tree lived to see if I can make a geographic connection. Any suggestions how to tackle this?

The new Ancestry beta could be pointing him to the ex-wife of an uncle, or something even more far flung.  It is not triangulation at all.  It does not rely on genetics alone, but on other people's (frequently incorrect) trees.  The best way to deal with this is by ignoring it as almost certainly a wild goose chase.  Shame on Ancestry for not explaining and for starting out with such a crappy beta.  Sorry to burst your bubble.

Forget Lottery Wins and Favour Family Fortunes Instead! 
#FamilyHistory   #HeirHunters   #DanielCurran   #Inheritance  
If windfalls are what you want, can we suggest family history research as a better bet than a lottery win (current odds one in 14 million)?Anyone who died intestate (i.e. without leaving behind a valid will) has their affairs handled by the Government’s legal department and, if no living relatives can be found, their estate goes to the Treasury.The list of unclaimed estates (called Bona Vacantia dating back to 1997) is online and is updated regul...

I am wondering what is wrong with Ancestry's hint system. I was just using it and it went off-line. More troubling, however, is the number of hints I've received recently that suggest records I have already attached to an individual. I've also received hints that have similar names, but don't fit the time period of the individual. i.e., the person is already dead, or they are from locations that don't match the person at all. Is any one else getting these worthless hints?

Do not forget we are dealing with computers. Associations are entered by humans. Then there are the gremlins that reside in all computers. It helps me keep my sense of humour and thus my sanity anyway.

A little genetic news: study reveals 30% of white British DNA has German ancestry.
Analysis over 20 years reveals heavy Anglo-Saxon influence, with French and Danish DNA coming from earlier migrations than the Normans or Vikings

Withers — earlier Wither, Wyther — is an English surname of Anglo-Saxon origin. It is today a somewhat common family name throughout the Anglosphere.
The family name appears on various early documents such as in a charter of Æthelred II, dated 1005 A.D. where one of the witnesses signs his name as "Ego Wi[th]er minister" (a thorn used in place of the digraph "th"). In the Domesday Book of 1089 the name is shown as a tenant prior to that date. In the 11th century, the name showed no prefix, suggesting that it was not derived from a place, as were many names at that time. Rather, the name was apparently personal. The meaning of the name is uncertain. Various authorities have proposed wider (Old English, "wood"), or words meaning "to withstand", "warrior" or "willow tree".

Records of the 11th century indicate the holding of land in many counties of England by persons named Wyther. A continuous record of a Wyther family does not appear until the time of Henry II (reigned 1154-89). This was a Wyther family of County Lancaster (now Lancashire) including Sir Robert Wyther, Knight, of Pendleton Hall, Lancashire, and of Halton, Cheshire, Seneschal to Roger de Lucy, Constable of Chester (1179–89). He married Joan, daughter of Sir Adam de Bostock, Knight, of Davenham, County Chester (now Cheshire).

By the 15th century, Wyther families descended from Sir Robert Wyther were living in Cheshire, Lancaster, Wiltshire, Essex, London, Somersetshire, and Hampshire Counties. (For the Hampshire County branch, see Berry's Hampshire County Genealogy.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Withers Name Meaning
    English: patronymic from the Old Norse personal name Viðarr, composed of the elements víðr ‘wide’ + ar ‘warrior’.
