I love the "Find A Grave" site and the help it gives researchers looking for information on their families. Any information I add to memorials may be used without my permission. If I have any information wrong, please let me know and it will be corrected. If I have created a memorial that is not my family, I will be happy to transfer. If you are closer related, I will still transfer. I am researching my Lawing, Lewing, Berel, Lewis, Dees, Mitchell and Oxley families (plus others). I am triple related to the Lewing Family so that is my main research. Through DNA tests I have connected the Lewing Family of Louisiana to the Lawing Family of North Carolina. I administered two Y-DNA tests for males who are from Sabine Parish, Louisiana - one to a 92 year old and one to a 72 year old. Both matched two male Lawing's from North Carolina who had also had a Y-DNA test on the site. The surname for the Lawing family from North Carolina was originally Lewing. I have expanded my family tree to include the Lawing family and I have several DNA matches on both Ancestry and FTDNA which is so exciting! I love DNA!
