About Me

I’m Julie.

And I adore genealogy.

My family is — sometimes– fascinated by it. At least my husband is. I’m grateful he listens to the stories of my successes in researching new family history lines.

And they are bored by it. That would be my kids. Especially ‘the son.’ The daughter actually says that when I’m dead and gone, she’ll “keep it going.” Hallelujah! My heart sings when I hear that.

Often, they are sick of seeing me spend countless hours at the computer with Family Tree Maker on the screen and a research log open.

Of course, I’ve saved my son’s school grades a few times when he needed to quickly come up with family history records for a class research paper. Otherwise, he can’t figure out why I “chase dead relatives.”

When I’m not chasing dead relatives, I’m meeting living ones all over the world. I have lots of places to visit and lots of cousins to meet. In Scotland. In England. In Puerto Rico. In Virginia and Texas and California.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. I really do appreciate it. Feel free to subscribe and follow along.

    I don’t have a website with a list of slaves owned by my ancestors, however I do have many that did. How could I contribute to your project? I also believe this is a way for me to help African American researchers. My lines are mostly from Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Since Ancestry released many wills and probate records I am finding many slaves listed. Thank You for your time and any suggestions you may have as to how I can help. Cynthia Beggs

      Hi Cynthia! If you don’t have a blog or website to post your findings to, my guess would be one of the following two options:
      Send a note to the Slave Name Roll Project at http://tangledrootsandtrees.blogspot.com/p/slave-name-roll.html and ask her to add your information. Or email it to me and I could add a post about your information.

    Hi Julie–I’m looking for info relating to James Morrison Broadfield (1815-1899), who was (I think) my great-grandfather–but definitely some relative (I have a picture of him w/info on the back in a bunch of family photos). If you’re willing to compare notes, would you email me? Thanks!

    Hi Julie,
    We had met via email about the DNA exact matches in Family Tree DNA. My Y DNA had 31 out of 38 marker matches with your Husband and 32 with a fellow from Romania (Julian Tulgan) who now lives in Holland. My fathers family arrived in Virginia about 1630’s. In about 1780’s they moved to Oglethorpe Georgia. After the Civil War the family or what was left of it moved to Birmingham, Alabama. My mothers side was also tested. She is second generation off the boat from Ireland (Fitsgerald). I was able to trace my fathers family back to Kent England and they came over with the Norman Invasion. There is some Plantagenet blood in our family as is your husband and several other People from Puerto Rico. Julian Tulgan and I matched on 32 of 38 markers which means our common ancestor is a bit closer than the Cordero and my family common ancestor (approx 1100 yeaars ago). There were many things happening in that time as far as travel is concerned with The Crusades and even the invasion of England (1066) by Normans and Ireland in about 1166. It was truly the first days of mass movement of troops. Even the Iberian/Roman invasion of Spain that drove the Moors out. I plan on doing further DNA testing (111 markers) and see what that brings out. Your Husband and I do have a common relative someplace along the time line but it then split and my branch came north to France and eventually England where it appears your husbands stayed in Spain which settled Puerto Rico. I thought at first when I saw the DNA that they must have gotten it wrong on the Exact matches but lately I can see how an English origin male can match so well with so many people from Puerto Rico and Spain. As I mentioned before there are 4 Cordero’s in my exact matchs and that was also interesting.

      I definitely remember our conversations! When you get the 111 marker test results back, let me know what you find out. Since you and I last spoke, I upgraded my husbands’ test results from 12 marker to Y67. You show up with genetic distance of 0 at the 12 marker level. Have you uploaded your results to GedMatch so we can compare results a bit better? I’m looking forward to figuring out this puzzle!

    Hi There.

    I like your blog! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I’m hoping you can blog about my website Gliesian Genealogy. We have some clever atDNA and GEDCOM tools on the site (gliesians.com). We have lots of other fun genealogy related tools tool

    However, the site appears to be down right now, likely because of the hurricane.

    Thanks,
    Robert
