Did this Johnston say more about his family in Northern Ireland? I am still looking for
my GG Grandmother's family who were supposed to be from the Fintona, Tyrone area. Her
name is Martha Johnston who immigrated to U.S. in the 1860's and married John J.
Primrose and her parents are Robert Johnston and Martha Mason. I have no Y DNA to use so I
need some dumb luck.

For all of you with a Johns(t)on/e connection, About 3 weeks ago I received
a telephone call from a Johnston who lives and farms in Co. Fermanagh.?
There are several exciting "things" about this conversation.
First:? He has his family genealogy?as handed down by?his ancestors.? He
knows which one came to Ireland from Scotland, when,?and the cities in both
Second:? His family?is documented?back to Sir Adam II.
Third:? We are anxiously awaiting the results?of his 111-markers?Y-DNA test.
With a wee bit of luck his male-line genetics are unbroken, and his is not
an adopted surname.? I/we have been in this situation a few times before
only to have my/our hopes dashed when?further research proved the surnames
to have been adopted as was evidenced by "wild hair" Y-DNA results.
We should know his Y-DNA results in 4-5 weeks.
Keeping my fingers crossed,
P.S.:? Good hunting!?
