Excuse my English: "first half"

@Eleanor of Aquitine is my 22nd great grandmother. Hello to all my cousins out there. That line of my family came to Mass in the 1600's.

There's been some discussion on this thread regarding DNA testing. I am having trouble finding much about my late father's family. He was an only child so I have no living male relatives (believe my sons don't qualify) available for testing. Can a sample be taken from the ashes? If so where do I have this testing done?

To Debra C. No a sample could not be taken from his ashes, but his Toothbrush would still have the needed Y-Dna, as would any male decendant of your father's father.

Gustavo Ferrero Gómez Doesn't Ferrero mean "ironsmith"? My name Blejer (written in Spanish) is Yiddish for "tinsmith" so we're cousins! LOL.

Hello, yes, Ferrero means "Ironsmith" or much more properly "Blacksmith", in our case the name comes from Asturias in Spain. In the Battle of Covadonga, in the year 722, there was a "blacsmith" in the town of Covadonga whose name was Mateo (Mathew), for the battle he donated 1000 horseshoes for the king's (Don Pelayo) cavalry and from then on he was known as "Mateo El Ferrero" (Mathew the Blacksmith). As it happened with many names in those times, the nickname became better known and that is the way it came to our days. Doing some resarch in GENI I found a path to Don Pelayo who happens to be one of my 38th GGGfathers on my father's mother's side. From my Knowlege of German "Blei" means "lead", and what comes to my mind is the artisan who works with lead, which in remote times would be those who made the Stained Glass Windows of the Cathedrals, Also, es ist sehr möglich dass unsere Grossväter, sind eimal zusammen gewesen als sie arbeiteten fúr die Aufbau der Lobe unseres Gottes Jesus, warum nicht ? Viele Grüsse schöne Kusine !!!

Fornjotur King of Kvenland, king in Kvenland is my 40th GGF

11/9/2011 at 7:49 PM

haha, my 36th ggf.

11/9/2011 at 8:07 PM

we can't see your path Hatte ... it doesn't show up ... it says No path found.

11/9/2011 at 8:24 PM

Interesting, there's no share option. I'm not sure why.

11/9/2011 at 8:37 PM

There's an upgrade to the relationship path in the works, and Curators are part of the test group. It runs much faster! But there are still a few kinks to work out and "share this path" for the testers is disabled during the test runs. Just try again later.

Para Andrés (Fariña): "Discutir" en inglés no significa lo mismo que en catellano. Es solamente un "amistoso intercambio de ideas" para llegar a un acuerdo.

11/10/2011 at 10:43 AM

Fornjotur was my 44th ggf. On my side of his family I guess we shrank a lot, from him being a giant to my 105 pounds!!!!!

11/10/2011 at 1:53 PM

Erica Howton thanks. That explains why sometimes the Share this Path option is there and this one time it was not :)

Hatte Anne Blejer No worries Hatte!

Good Morning to all of you, I have always wondered if there is a way to research links in GENI between persons but yourself. I haven´t been able to find out that procedure. Is there one ? Thanks in advance.

Use the green pushpin on the upper right corner of the profile you want as start-point for the relationship path.

11/11/2011 at 7:18 AM

Awesome!! Thanks for the info! I was wondering the same thing!

11/11/2011 at 8:05 AM - I love the ability to research links between two people, not including myself. As Private User said, if you push that green pushpin, it will calculate the relationship between that person and whoever else's profile you then bring up, until you re-set it by pushing the green pushpin in a second time to make yourself the focus again.

Thank you so much, I'll keep you posted of my research

Aliénor d'Aquitaine and Henry II are may 29th great-grandmother and
great-grandfather, not 23th. They was the parents of my 28th great-grandmother Aliénor da Inglaterra, married to Alfonso VIII, el nobre, rey de Castila, as we can see here:
Eleanor of England, Queen consort of Castile

Thanks for the pushpin tip, till yesterday I could investigate the links through my father, and now I found out that Eleanor Plantagenet of England is my mother's fourth cousin 24 times removed, and that led me to William the Conqueror being my mother's first cousin 30 times removed, and going further back the oldest in line belonging to that lineage is Aethelbert of Saxony (635). For you Deisi, this line goes through Alfonso VII "The Emperor", Richard I, Duke of Normandy....
At the same time that line of Aethelberts and Ethelreds is the line that made William the Conqueror believe he had the right to conquer England, when the Saxon Kings did not have any more direct descendance when Edward "The Confessor" died with no children. So this makes all of us people who are discovering ancient links that relate us. Moreover I made some research between more people I know here in Caracas, and believe it or not, you have quite a number of Venezuelan relatives. If this helps to make the world better, let it be welcome !!!
