Bio

I live in Canyon County, Idaho. I'm a retired Navy veteran and have been working on my family tree for over 30 years. In July 2012 I took a Y-DNA test and discovered that I had multiple matches to men named Ferguson. About two years later I got a DNA match to a woman at Ancestry with a predicted relationship of 2nd cousin. There were no Drake's in her line, but her grandmother was a Ferguson and grandma had two brothers. After a lot of detective work, I found a living son of one of those brothers and convinced him to DNA test. The tests proved conclusively that he is my dad's half brother and my uncle. The Ferguson memorials that I manage are those of my new found family. =0) days
