Sorry I didn’t see this question until now. SURE, we’d love to have you join the Facebook “Newfoundland Gedmatch” very active 1200+ member group. Anyone at Gedmatch.com (FREE) is welcome to join us! Heather hlgoebeL@yahoo.com
Update on the Facebook “Newfoundland Gedmatch” group:
We now have 1,107 members actively working together to use DNA to untangle our family trees.
If you have DNA tested (autosomal) and are on Facebook, please consider joining us!
Hello Josh. If you have added your DNA information to Gedmatch and if you use Facebook there is a new Newfoundland Gedmatch group that we’d like to invite you (and all others here who are in the volunteer-run operated Gedmatch website) to join us. Just need you Gedmatch kit number and surnames if you wish to provide those. Heather Goebel, hlgoebel at yahoo
Our family has done quite a bit of DNA testing and I am hoping that more and more of us will be testing. Least expensive way right now is to test at Ancestry.com (on sale this weekend but normally about $100) and then transfer your results to FTDNA for $39. It is also helpful to add your results to the free volunteer operated Gedmatch. (I haven’t tried the new DNALand yet.) We have there at kit numbers M222426; M203038, M165958; M194816 and M711557 (all designated with hlgoebel at the end of the name of the testee). Hope to make some more connections with people who had ancestors in Grates Cove, Lower Island Cove, Quidi Vidi and St. John’s. hlgoebel at yahoo
