You can read the background story here, Wish me luck! which I posted on Saturday. I worked on this all weekend and I have run into a bit of a snafu. My DNA match hasn’t emailed me back. I asked for his sources for his direct line relationships. I have been trying to find the sources for his direct line relationships myself both because of impatience and because I want to see the proof myself. I made it up several rungs but now I am stuck. I did a quick survey of the online trees just to see what people have for parents of this one person and I found three different sets of parents. Of course no one had sources for any of the parents other than other unsourced trees.
I have got to be able to prove his direct line all the way up to his brick wall ancestor or his information isn’t helpful. DNA is great but without a paper trail it isn’t going to do me any good.
