Meet Shadow, my companion when I am sitting at the computer working on family history stuff. I am also active on Family Tree DNA where I have done the Family Finder and YDNA testing. Most of my blood lines have been in the what is now the United States since they were young colonies. Many have come through the southern states where records have been destroyed. DNA indicates European roots - British Isles (72%), Iberia (12%), Southeast Europe (11%), and Finland (5%).
I still consider myself a Texan although I have not lived in the state for decades. Some kin were in the Republic when it was formed.
Shadow is American Shorthair.
Thanks for you participation in Find A Grave.
