Hello from Ron.V (2018-08-13)

Posted 13th August 2018 at 12:52 AM by revincent

Hello Folks,

My name is Ron Vincent, usually given as "Ron.V" on the net because that's my main personal and public website, ronv.net.

I've been a subscriber of FTDNA.com for several years and have taken about every test they offer. I've also DNA tested at other companies: SMGF/Genetree, AncestryDNA, and 23andMe.

I never cared to get involved with the forum. I preferred instead to figure things out on my own by reading books or asking others

I would love to have a way to dismiss or "set aside" matches on FF. So many give no information on trees and it makes it very difficult for those who are seriously looking for matches.

Family Trees

Posted 25th April 2017 at 04:30 PM by Wheal

Just wanted to say a little bit about finding families on here. As a newbie, was was very surprised to find so many people who didn't upload their trees. With over 1500 matches for my mom, and 1000 for my dad, I only had maybe 25-50% who uploaded trees. Y-DNA and mtDNA were the problem. I have a large number of 2-3 or 4th cousins, and a number of Y-DNA 50-90cM but am unable to compare families.

If you are really interested in filling in your trees, upload at least 5 generations...

My grandmother was not given any information of her biological father. No one knows what the situation was or if there was ever any contact. I am waiting for dna results to be processed for my father on FTDNA.My immediate family have all tested
