I am the Administrator of the original #Keach
Family Tree DNA Project at familytree.com
. After several years of no new male Keach Y-DNA volunteers I decided to take the mtDNA test. My mother was a Keach. I had my name legally changed to reflect a suspected ancestral history in #scotland
. Test results came back and show that I am part of Haplogroup K ( K1b2a1a1 ). So, now I know where my maternal line came from about 18,000 years ago. This is helpful to a point. I am missing the middle bits that would show where and how KEACH came to be. We live in a patriarchal society -- based on the male's last name and I want to reconnect with some living family. I have been looking to male Keach Y-DNA to assist with the Keach/MacKeachan puzzle. I am not discounting my mom's side ! My mom's mom was a #Rawson
and I know that they were English; Rawson can easily be found in genealogy / historical archives. I met my great grandmother and she was a Chase and a wonderful lady. The thing is that I want to move from the United States "back" to to Scotland -- not England. I am not looking for a "free ride" either. I have graduated college and have skills I would be willing to work and earn my way .... I have a legal business here in New Hampshire and continue to learn and practice leadership traits.
