What a ding-a-ling. The census taker, not my g-g-aunt!
LOL at the bold! That literally made me laugh. He was a ding-a-ling lol

This is a great website though but it reminded me of my frustration with certain surnames in my tree that are spelled thousands of different ways. I have a couple of "Mc" surnames in a line that is Scottish and those give me the worse headaches. Another Enos, also gives me headeaches. It had one column with over 2000 ways to spell/say Enos and honestly, I've seen a lot of those in my research on that line in particular.

See the post Family tree and DNA general instructions

Right now is the time to start thinking of testing. One member just posted in the Geneology & DNA Sites - Free Dates & Specials Thread that 23 and me is doing 2 tests for the price of one. Ancestry will also be going on sale with Black Friday coming up. FTDNA is $69. All of the links are in the 1st thread I linked to
Unfortunately I can't help you with the info. The tribe had set up the test, and don't know what company was used. I would have to look for the paperwork, I don't know where to start for that lol

Well I'm just gonna hafta get with 23&Me. Thank you!!
