Re: L3 Mystery
In Response To: Re: L3 Mystery ()
I don't think that it is just speculation. I do think that there is a tie to VA. I have the pure L3 designation and I know of two of my ancestors who were born in VA. However, their children, including the one who became the matriarch of the family was born in Tennessee. Only after obtaining her death certificate (she died in 1920), did I learn that both parents were born on Virginia. So Virginia indeed may have been where the common ancestor that I have with the 2 DNA matches will be found.
Keeping my fingers crossed as the research continues.
