Lost Colony Mitochondrial DNA participant,
I mentioned in the recent newsletter, we are working to provide genealogical
data for each one of our Lost Colony surname participants and to be sure each
person actually belongs in the Lost Colony project.
mitochondrial DNA can be listed under several surnames, you need to find your
mtdna file on the web page by going to the link on the webpage called “Kit
number” and finding your kit number. Click
on that link and you will be on the webpage with your information.
Here is the link: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~molcgdrg/sur/1kitnumbers.htm
your kit number has no genealogical or family history information, we need that
from you. Please provide it within
the next week if possible. You will
receive one reminder, if necessary, and if we do not receive the information
after that, you will be removed from the project.
you have joined the Lost Colony mitochondrial DNA project, it means that you
believe that your maternal line is or may be somehow connected to the Lost
Colony. Your maternal line is your
mother, her mother, her mother and on up the tree following only the women in
sure you had a good reason for joining the Lost Colony project, but we need to
know what it is.
you please let us know why you joined the project and what your link is to the
Colonists, the surnames or the area? We
would also appreciate it if you would provide something for the research or
history portions of your page, and if you haven’t already, something for the
genealogy section as well. Just
complete the questions below.in red. I
have left space for answers.
Your kit number ________________________________________
Your name _______________________________
Why did you join the Lost Colony project?
How is your mitochondrial DNA line connected to the colonists, the
surnames, Native people or the location?
3 sections of the website are divided into genealogy, research and history.
– typically this would be the specific genealogy of the line listed here on
the site….so the mtdna for you.
am including a mini-genealogy form below for you to complete which should help
you to document your maternal ancestry. Alternatively,
you can upload a gedcom to either your personal results page at Family Tree DNA
or mitosearch and let us know that you have done so.
Please provide a brief writeup (2 paragraphs to one page in length) on
Mini-Genealogy From Participant to Oldest Ancestor (completeform below)
the form below, enter the current generation’s name in line 1 and add each
generation on subsequent lines through your oldest ancestor.
You don’t need to provide
personal info for living individuals, just a placeholder name.
Do you have a family website that includes this line?
If so, please provide the link.
– this would include such items as papers you’ve written about the family,
deeds you’ve extracted, or other things relevant to your particular line.
Do you have research items to contribute?
If so, paste here or send separately.
– this would include any general history of the area or a tribe or something
not included above.
Do you have history to share?
If so, paste here or send separately.
Are you willing to have your e-mail address and first name listed as a
contact for your kit? If so, what is the e-mail you want listed?
Are you willing to be a coordinator or resource for any of the Lost
Colony surnames? If so, which ones?
are working to be sure that everyone who should be included in the Lost Colony,
is in fact included, and that folks who don’t have a potential link to the
colonists have the opportunity to join a project more suited to their needs.
possible, please reply within the next week or so.
you very much,
