I am a member of the FTDNA Smith Group R-M269-9. My work pertains to lineages that have been tied up with Linda G. Cheek's book, "Ancestors and Descendants of Smiths".

Hudson-Rhodes Working Hypothesis

Posted 29th December 2015 at 03:11 PM by Stephen Rhodes (Searching for Hudsons: My Journey to Find a Common Ancestor)

Who am I searching for ~ and why?

Posted 13th July 2015 at 12:21 AM by RicknTX (Seeking Paternal Grandparents (ie, Doss/Nelson))
