Genetic Genealogy is one of my interests.  We have tested at Family Tree DNA and 23andme, plus searched databases elsewhere. Whenever we get an autosomal DNA match we compare names and geographic locations so that we can find out where we have the connection.

    I think your husband may share Brouwer with my mom. Adam Brouwer was born in Germany about 1621, I think. He died 1692 in Queens. He had a daughter, Magdalena Helena Brouwer 1660 in Long Island. She married William Hendricxen {Dutch} and had daughter, Fytje de Ronde in Tarrytown, NY. Fytje married Hark Kranckheyt {Dutch}, later descendants spelled it Conkright. My mom had her DNA done at 23 and me and also has it on GEDMATCH.

  2. Looking for Gardner married to Shober Michigan 1884,also connections to Linds,Courtades,and Swainston all of Mid to Upper Michigan.

  3. Take a look at this Canadian-Jamaican immigrant story through the eyes of the author G.A. Archambeau, and his family connections with his grandfather Jamaican Police Inspector Herbert T. Thomas. Author of two books decades before his grandson, Canadian Author G,A. Archambeau. The books from this family crosses the racial divide, and exposes the folly of racism in the world. The books are Untrodden Jamaica 1890, Something about Obeah 1891,The storyof a West Indian Policeman 1927 & A Struggle to Walk with Dignity 2008.
    Google-User Pages Info on Jamaican Police Inspector Herbert Thomas.
