DNA + MRCA Matches Confirm Paternal Surname as FINLEY for Jack Harry Finley regardless of what is being stated as his legal documentation from birth certificate used for entering military and Social Security Application states. Please verify for yourself on the document link above.

*NOTE: Please see DNA FINLEY SURNAME MATCHES and EVIDENCE OF SHAW ANCESTORS listed below and additional PDF profile sources all confirming accuracy of this lineage and the DNA connections. Thank you.

FINLEY Surname Autosomal DNA Matches to Jacqueli Finley – Paternal side

Grandparents Finley/Lee as parents of Jack Harry Finley per his legal documentation and his personal testimony. *All DNA Matches presented for Jacqueli can be verified online via ancestry.com, FTDNA, MyHeritage, GEDMatch, Geni.

Associated Surnames DNA Confirmed Matches to Jacqueli Finley per this Finley paternal branch for 8 generations to MRCA aligning with tree per Autosomal test results include: Bumbalough, Henry, Burgess, Johnson, Thomas, Broyles, Burgess, Phy, Hancock, Wright, Day, Pulliam, Lance, Yeager, Allison, Bradford, Gaines, Henderson, Wright, Sears, Fine, Howard, Chyphers, Stuart, Medcalf, Dryman, Robinson, Hunter, Toler, Earns, Doak, and Garrison – again all of these DNA matches can be verified online.

NOTE: Jacqueli Finley’s mother’s maternal line DOES NOT have Finley birth surname direct line grandparent ancestors in first 8 generation Autosomal DNA confirmed maternal line tree so maternal line Autosomal/MIT DNA will not be effecting the listed matches.

RE: SHAW surname matches to paternal DNA may be father’s sibling(s) who had been adopted and/or an additional NPE in an upper ancestral line is always possible but SHAW ancestors exist for Jacqueli Finley on both paternal and maternal lines as examples given (there are 100's more) - UNFORTUNATELY - At this time any test kits for Y-DNA haplogroup confirmation for male immediate family members cannot be verified publicly as this information is unavailable because the DNA ‘manager’ for these immediate family members has chosen not to make results public and has alienated contact thus limiting participation between immediate family members over this “PRIVATE” issue that was made "PUBLIC" which is also unfortunate and insensitive. It is premature and unethical to be changing legal surnames of individuals, living or deceased, from FINLEY to SHAW because of what someone may believe or speculate. The US Military DOES NOT EVER tell any recruit to 'pick a name and that will be your legal name" - especially during the time of war - because any recruit MUST PROVE LEGAL CITIZENSHIP - same goes for the Social Security Administration, legal citizenship must be established with legal documentation.

Making up stories as that to create an illusion of truth about the situation IS deceptive especially coming from individuals who never met or spoke to Jack Harry Finley while he was alive, as there is no conclusive evidence to support any of the claims being made about his parentage and the legal documents that prove it. I met my father at the age of 24 and spend almost 2 years with him prior to his death. I spoke with him extensively about his life, as any child who had grown up without a parent given the opportunity to do so would. He shared with me who he was and even took trips with him to Las Vegas where he showed me where he worked and lived. My father would not have lied to me since his whole purpose to meet with his children before he died was to clear his conscience as my siblings well knew but took the "he can burn in hell" road (their words) instead of the road of forgiveness and my mother never told me about a children's home. It was my father who told me he had been an orphan. My mother rarely spoke about my father but when she had it was in distain and hate so that when my siblings were given the chance to meet Jack and get to know him, ask him about his life and parents they chose not to but instead treated him with the same distain and hate as their mother had taught them, and he was hurt deeply at the way he was treated when he tried to make contact with them - his words, not mine. My father is no longer here to defend himself as I am being forced to by this attempt to embarrass and disprove my father's memory publicly which is beyond despicable by any standard. Am I upset? You betcha. I have worked hard on my father's ancestry as a promise to him before he died and I think any reasonable person would be compelled to speak up if ever confronted with the same scenario.

The probable SHAW match is most likely from Jack's brother who HAD been adopted and HIS brother's family may not have known HIS family and ancestors so may have been looking for answers themselves as they possibly may be FINLEY's - unfortunately this possibility is being overlooked by the DNA manager (who has no formal genetic training or education) who is interpreting the results as they wish which cannot be verified by any other family members who has changed the stories surrounding my father and his "FINLEY" name various times now - publicly. Basically this is being done prematurely, spitefully and apparently to cause harm to other family members, and public embarrassment through this Geni platform, again, unfortunately.

This is not a case of immediate family members of Jack Finley unacceptance or denial of someone's claiming he is of a different birth, but the lack of evidence, transparency and accuracy of the information is inadequate to prove or disprove anything at this time. Normally when one is researching DNA and genealogy for an adopted person, one should use discretion, respect, integrity and ethics - not the behavior as the DNA manager involved in creating this drama and her "LOOK AT ME" attention seeking and trying to force the SHAW surname issue down immediate family members and the PUBLICs throats, especially when it has been apparent that the stories and lies told by that person keep changing to suit the moment (all publicly recorded) and again they have never met my father and spoken with him about his life and parents as I did when given the opportunity to. I am requesting for this person to cease and desist this public harassment immediately as I strongly suggest to her that personal reflection and perspective of the situation seems the more appropriate action at the moment instead of trying to control everyone and everything in this most inappropriate atmosphere where proving one right or wrong should not be the priority here, as I am not a willing participant in this extremely one sided narcissistic game that is being played by this DNA manager (my sibling) but am being forced to respond after multiple attempts to merge into and vandalize this tree that I have had since 2006 (this is the 4th attempt by her to do so in past 5 years).

Anyone can do research and have a tree with profiles reflecting whatever they wish without such nonsense as to a purposeful destruction of another's tree and work, that should be understood as any other behavior is inappropriate and wrong on many levels.

When family members trust someone with their DNA there is an implied ethic not to use that DNA wrongfully by manipulating or displaying results that are doctored so they cannot be verified, as these are also my DNA matches so I can see the true results and what is occurring. I am sorry to have had to post all of this publicly for it is not my intention to cause anyone any harm or strife as I would never infringe upon anyone in this manner as likened to what is being done to myself and my father with the obvious intent to cause harm, public humiliation, and conflict. Societies as the DAR would frown upon and would not accept any of presented DNA evidence by this other person or statements she has made as to my father's parents not being the ones listed on his legal documentation as there is no genealogical entity that would accept and override his legal name as Finley. Instead they are using this public genealogical site to do their dirty work since I have openly had conflicts with others here so they were probably thinking that others would join in the fun of trashing me along with them.

I am beyond trying to figure out the motives of my sibling(s) but my final comment on this matter is simply that most of my family might look great on paper but in real life they suck.

I have created my paternal tree information from my conversations with my father, his legal documentation, primary sources and DNA matches that I have verified through genealogical DNA software programs to matching MRCA's aligning with tree (which I have attached examples as a source here) and have not attempted to deceive anyone. Period.
