atDNA Match via Readie Mae Belcher Golden to Elizabeth Ann Betsy Martin (1762 SC – 1829 AL)

Golding / Golden / Goulding et al Family History on Facebook

This DNA match on links me with a bunch of new cousins in the Belcher, Brooks, Buzbee, Drummond, Fields, and Martin families.

One of the great side benefits of DNA testing is that it provides you with a historical timeline and geolocational point of reference for finding documentation … because NOW you know where your family was and whom they were with (although not 24/7 like the NSA knows … =^)
