Born/reared Abilene. Army, one tour in Vietnam.

Reynolds, Goodman in N.C., Miss., Tex.
Derden, Abercrombie in N.C., Ala., La., Tex.

I have my dna with www.familytreedna.com for Ydna, Mtdna and autosomnal. Recently added my autosomal dna to ancestry and 23andMe.
I am building a "Stevens Family Tree" on Ancestry, which includes all of my lines.
Of my entries of memorials, any relative closer related than me, ask and it will be yours.
I don't understand why someone not related to a person they enter for a memorial would not transfer them to a relative.
With memorials in my name, I've had many distant cousins contact me.
