Helping To Connect You With Your Heritage


Twigs to Trees

September, 2020

Mary Helen Haines



Hello everyone. It is such a shame we were not able to travel to Scotland this year. I hope the next year proves better and things will start going back to normal. For genealogy purposes, research can only be done on-line right now. We are fortunate that so many records are available on-line, but I really miss our Dallas Public Library genealogy section, where I could always turn for in-depth research. The library has been closed since March.

I have used this time period to explore further my Family Finder connections at FTDNA and Ancestry. Both sites have unique programs you can use to discover your connections, but for the test to be beneficial, you should upload a family tree to both sites and tie it to your test results.  Ancestry will show your matches, and if you have an extensive family tree matched to your results, their program will search the other persons’ trees to see if they can find a common ancestor and predict your relationship through “Thru Lines.”
