So I got my ancestry dna results back with some expected and a couple unexpected finds. Expected results was I matched my first cousin as first cousin Deborah Kinney and I matched Jeanne in TN who we already had Y-DNA testing on. The big surprize was matching 3 people who descend from Levi Leming b1805, who did not match Y-DNA of the other Leming men. What this means is that his mother was a Leming and he took her name. This is a huge breakthrough for the family. He was in the 1830 Monroe county census living near Jesse Leming who I think was his uncle. I believe now that Levi's mother was a sister of my Levi, and daughter of Thomas Leming b1760 and Mary Carter. In that same census, 2 pages from Levi and Jesse is a woman named Catherine Lemmons born 1780-90 who I have never been able to place in the tree and now I am wondering if she is the mother??? I also matched someone who descends from Daniel's son Samuel which is the first DNA connection to that son. I also had many connections to my womens lines in my tree, Maxey, Tubbs, Thacker, Blackwell, Holloway, Grigg, Fine. Then I had many on my maternal lines as well. I'm glad I did the test at ancestry. I did upload to gedmatch with my FTDNA test so both are there. It will be interesting to see if the matches there are different between the 2 tests since they are supposed to be the same test.

The immigrant can be found in websites, books, records, and other sources with any of these names. Be sure that you check all possible spellings when searching for him in other peoples trees or a search engine.

The new Society website has 20 members now! But no one is talking yet because everyone still needs to friend everyone. If you have registered please login, look on the black welcome bar. It will say "You have # of friends requests. If there is a number there, click your friends button, then click view pending friend requests. Click each person and catagorize them as Close Friend, Friend, Acquaintance then hit enter. They will now show in as your friend. You can now chat with them, click on their name link to see their wall messages and photos and read their profile.  You all should have at least one friend request from me.

The spelling of John Liming is usually Lyming which is taken from a indenture document of a John Lyning who was sent to Nevis Island in 1660 at the age of 14 years old. Many early researchers have believed that this was the first mention of the Man who settled in Monmouth Co, NJ in 1680-81. But there is no proof that these are the same man. The first record in the colonies of John Liming is a land purchase in Delaware in 1675 for 350 acres. His name on the document is John Liming, so that is why I chose this spelling for the society name.

I did purchase social network software and have it installed on the domain http://john-liming-society.org. I am still working on getting all the settings changed and the look of it changed. But you are encouraged to come visit and make an account, add to your profile and help me test the site out. Create a photo album and add a baby/kid picture of yourself. Created a group named after your Liming grandparent. Then you can invite all of your online family who all have your grandparent in common.
