Hello, I recently received the test result for my father's Y-DNA. They seem to be a good fit for this group, but I'm unsure how to confirm that. I have chosen to join the project on FTDNA: will that automatically share the results and assign them to a group?
(My father has consented to me sharing his results. He's really interested in the possibility of discovering distant - very distant - cousins.)
YES!!!! :) I was just working on your line, here is the group, YDNA tester. and branch https://www.smithsworldwide.org/tng/showbranch.php?br=B7CqIk092022081259 Your registration is now also tied to the branch so you can add or edit within the Robert Smith line. Wasn't sure if John ws the early ancestor or if that was a theory. Would also love if you have a photo of yourself or your dad for the Smith member photo list and one of an early Smith ancestor. You can send to email@example.com
Excellent! Consider me a member then (well, my father).
To answer your other points:
1) John Smith is certainly Robert Smith's father. However, I can identify at least two John Smiths who fit the bill, so I'm not certain of his birth year or place.
2) I might upload a few pictures of my grandfather and great-grandfather, but need to ask my father if he wants to share his picture.
3) I thought finding somebody in England would interest people! As you've probably seen my family is from Lincolnshire and has been for hundreds of years. I'd be honoured if I can help you find your Lincolnshire roots.
