My Ancestor Chart


June 25, 2020

I am trying to update and expand  these pages and many have been greatly updated in the past year. 

I do as much real research as possible and take the time to track down source documents and draw conclusions based on actual documentation, heavy circumstantial evidence, cluster data and now DNA evidence. 

I have been researching my ancestry off and since 1991.  Many lines are very difficult to research and there are still many brick walls.

I am on Ancestry and my relevant trees are "Lance's Paternal..." or "Lance's Maternal..."

Unfortunately much of the tree "information" on Ancestry is erroneous because newer researchers are just name matching not actually researching and verifying.

I have added links to some new pages attempting to document possible DNA segment triangulations.

At the bottom of this page are links to my public shared Google Drive folders that contain important photos and documents.

Mystery matches      

Ancestry DNA matches sharing:
(click here for screen shots how to do it)

Viewing "Shared DNA" matches is NOT the same as viewing direct DNA matches as if they were your own.  Shared DNA matches will only show people who actually share the same DNA segment or match another way on another chromosome.  At several generations away from a common ancestor it becomes less and less likely that two distant cousins would share a similar segment of DNA.  If you are attempting to used "Shared DNA" to find new cousins this will only be effective for closer cousins and much less effective for distant cousins.  It's far better to view someone's DNA matches directly by being added to their DNA "Sharing Preferences".  You have to request to be added to someone's viewer list.  To manually add a person here are the steps:

DNA triangulation:

DNA triangulation can be used work out which specific DNA segments are common to specific ancestral lines or ancestral couples.   The method involves comparing chromosome match data in a spreadsheet.  Currently Ancestry has the largest DNA database but it does NOT let you see the actual segment data.  It also adds smaller likely erroneous segments matches into your total centimorgan count which can make distant matches report closer than they really are.  The only method to obtain and view actual Ancestry segment data is to download your DNA data and then upload that file to a 3rd party website like Gedmatch (preferred) or FTDNA.  While Gedmatch is a smaller database than Ancestry it contains user-submitted kits from multiple DNA websites.  The steps are:
