Hello, Dee and Janet, I located a cousin living in New Brunswick, through genealogy, whom
I had never met and who had never even heard of me. One summer I drove there from Maine,
introduced myself, and asked if he would take the yDNA test if I paid for it. I had
brought a file folder of material explaining what the test is, why I wanted him to take
it, etc. None of that was necessary. He just looked at me and said, "why not?"
The results were wonderful. He was an exact match with another Graham
who came directly to Alberta from Longtown, Cumberland, England. So now I believe that
is where my Grahams came from before they moved to Roscommon and later Fermanagh. Perhaps
you could ask a relative whom you don't know. It's worth a try. Shirley

I have no living brothers or uncles or first cousins, either. I had to go back to a 3rd
cousin in my father's line. But I figure our common ancestor is closer to the source!

It is most interesting, and I only wish I had a brother who could donate dna.
