Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

Randy Seaver over at Genea-Musings provides us with some regular Saturday night fun.  This week’s question is:

Provide a list of your paternal grandmother’s patrilineal line. Answer these questions:

* What was your father’s mother’s maiden name?  Elizabeth Wilson, (1884-1973), b. Aberdeenshire, Scotland

* What was your father’s mother’s father’s name? Martin Watson Wilson (1857-1942), b. Banff or MacDuff, Scotland.

* What is your father’s mother’s father’s patrilineal line? That is, his father’s father’s father’s … back to the most distant male ancestor in that line?  No idea…wish we knew.

* Can you identify male sibling(s) of your father’s mother, and any living male descendants from those male sibling(s)? If so, you have a candidate to do a Y-DNA test on that patrilineal line. If not, you may have to find male siblings, and their descendants, of the next generation back, or even further.

One sibling of my father’s mother – Alex Wilson, who had a son Charles Wilson.  No other information unfortunately but something to pursue.

Thanks Randy for another fun quiz!
