Saturday Night Fun Mothers
Hey genealogy buffs - it's Saturday Night again -- time for more Genealogy Fun!!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) List your matrilineal line - your mother, her mother, etc. back to the first identifiable mother. Note: this line is how your mitochondrial DNA was passed to you!
2) Tell us if you have had your mitochondrial DNA tested, and if so, which Haplogroup you are in.
1) My mother Margaret Hansen b. Trenton, Mo 1914 d. Spokane WA 1994
Her Mom Cleo Travis b. Mill Grove, Mo 1890 d. 1984 Spokane, WA'
her mom Dona Vanderpool b. 1873 d. 1900 Mill Grove, MO
her mom Margaret Loe b. 1837 Ray Co, Mo d. abt 1910 Mercer Co, MO
her mom Kessiah, Brennam b. 1810 Lee, Virginia
My dads mom Anna Dillingham b.1872 Lyle, MN d. 1960 Spirit Lake, ID'
her mom Eliza Minerva Hellenbolt b.1845 Rock Co, WI d.1933 Algonquin Township, IL
her mom Rhoda Preston b. 1816 Canada
2) No I have not done any DNA testing, got my paternal line back much further than maternal line, so not sure of any benefit for DNA testing.
