New Genetic Genealogical Resources – Kelly Wheaton’s Beginners’ Guide to Genetic Genealogy

I have begun reading this material and find it helpful. I hope that as I begin to use it that I will be even more helpful. At this site there are references to useful resources such as spreadsheets for consolidating data that can be sorted in many different order to find telltale patterns of chromosome segments that suggest branches on family trees..

Newborn Frances Shaw McCallum Continues the Name Francis/Frank in the Next Generation

We are pleased to announce that Frances Helena Shaw McCallum, born August 4, 2013 to Jonathan McCallum and Kerry Shaw  will continue in the next generation the name Frances which has variations in the families of both parents.

Unraveling  the mystery surrounding the past of orphan Francis (Frank) is the reason for this web site.   We have reason to believe that there were in distant family other versions including Fran/z/ziska/cizka/tiska. They are still to be confirmed.

Frances is the great granddaughter of Francis (Frank) McCallum.  The late Francis (Sandy) Merle McCallum was  a son of Frank and would be a great uncle to Frances.
