Introduction

Welcome to the home page for those sharing a segment of dna on chromosome 05 and trying to figure out which ancestor is responsible for that.

Names/places

Colonial America accounts for many of the matches, and we already know that several share the GRAHAM family of Delaware and Botetourt, Virginia.
Possibly with a bit of work at least some others in the group will either have a known cousin at a strategic spot to narrow down which branch to explore further, at least between their trees even if they can't cross the pond.
On the British side of the pond this looks to be a segment of dna inherited from Andrew GRAHAM of Fauld nr Longtown, Cumberland. These blog posts refer.

Wanted!

In order to help refine which ancestor(s) of our matches are responsible for the shared/inherited DNA it is very useful to have a range of tested descendants.
We would therefore particularly love to hear from descendants of any of the following who either have joined in the fun of autosomal dna testing, or who may be interested in doing so (see DNA Groups page for further information).
Links are to either WikiTree or FamilySearch, both collaborative one world trees where it is free to register and contribute.
With known descendants in the tested gene pool the matches become easier to assign to specific ancestral lines for further investigation of links between matches where the links are not known.

Some of the people mentioned are linked to their tree in DNAGeds tree
Do NOT believe such trees without verification as they are merely quick research into possible areas to explain dna matches.
