  • Free FTP web hosting for Townsend and related names

    Back in 2000 I realized that FTDNA.com was the best way to find the missing links. I'm a 5th generation Tasmanian and indirectly, most of the population of that small island state of Australia is related. The Tasmanian government provides probably one of the best ancestorial sites around.

    In my case, I knew my ancestors came from 3 siblings John, William and Eliza who arrived as "free settlers" not convicts but there the trail ended.

    It was not untill I met Pam [ http://pam.TownsendDnaproject.com who tracked down those siblings via familysearch.org who had several extra siblings that we never knew about.

    Now 5 years later, no exact 37 / 37 match has arrived by several close 35/37 which show at around 300 years we all had a common Irish ancestor.

    Interestingly, other matches so that about 400 to 500 years ago, I share common ancestors with those who arrived in America in the 1600's

    You can do all the family research you like and it will cost incredible amounts of time and money without providing any real guarantee of the reliability of the information which means to most of us, that the surname we have is really generally only valuable for the last few hundred years.

    Once you pass about 10 generations, it appears that it is more likely that your surname really is one that you don't know about yet. That could mean an adoption, that the mother retained a former married name or remarried and the children took a surname that was not that of the biological father.

    What is needed is a large and rapid increase in the number of people ordering a 37 Ytdna test as part of the various surname Dna Projects.

    To assist, the http://TownsendDnaProject.com will provide any participant of the http://TownsendDnaProject FREE FTP WEB HOSTING for the Townsend or related surname research project. This is worth around $240 a year and will be provided to any Townsend or related name that orders a test via [email protected] or asks for their record to be transferred to the http://TownsendDnaProject.com project.

    Roger, You sound just like the person I'm looking for. I'm the administrator of the Tasmania Regional DNA project. I agree with you that most of the population is related, which is why I started the project. I also exchanged message with a man currently living in Tasmania, but without a surname project to join. By starting the project he had a way to receive a group discount and look for matches.

    I invite you to add yourself to our project and to encourage others who have been tested and have a Tasmania connection to do likewise. Please feel free to contact me directly at [email protected].
