SNGF - My Mommy's Mommy!

Randy Seaver has got a really interesting topic for this week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun over at Genea-Musings. It’s been awhile since I participated, but even I could handle this one.

1) List your matrilineal line - your mother, her mother, etc. back to the first identifiable mother. Note: this line is how your mitochondrial DNA was passed to you!

2) Tell us if you have had your mitochondrial DNA tested, and if so, which Haplogroup you are in.

My matrilineal line is:

1) Me
2) My mother: Rhona MacDonald Marshall (1933 Dundee, Angus, Scotland – 2003 St. Lambert, Quebec, Canada) married Robert Allan Farrell.
3) My grandmother: Eliza Hamilton Burnett (1897 Dundee, Angus, Scotland – 1943 Dundee, Angus, Scotland) married Robert Burn Marshall.
4) My great grandmother: Helen Leighton Marshall (1863 Kirrimuir, Angus,Scotland – 1929 Dundee, Angus, Scotland) married John Burnett.
5) My 2nd great grandmother: Ann Kynoch (1820 Dallas, Morayshire, Scotland – 1885 Dundee, Angus, Scotland) married Robert Marshall.
6) My 3rd great grandmother: Christian Hay (1781 Dallas, Morayshire, Scotland - ??) married John Kynoch.
7) My 4th great grandmother: Mary Ross married Robert Hay

My father’s matrilineal line is:

1) My father: Robert Allan Farrell (1927 Abernethy, Saskatchewan, Canada – 1962 Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada)
2) My grandmother: Helen Devlin (1892 Auchinleck, Ayrshire, Scotland – 1980 Balcarres, Saskatchewan, Canada) married Robert Farrell.
3) My great grandmother: Janet Anderson (1867 Hulford, Riccarton, Ayrshire, Scotland – 1939 Auchinleck, Ayrshire, Scotland) married Peter Devlin.
4) My 2nd great grandmother: Jane Dunlop (1835 Hulford, Riccarton, Ayrshire, Scotland – 1921 Prestwick, Ayrshire, Scotland) married Alexander Anderson.
5) My 3rd great grandmother: Margaret Ferguson married James Dunlop.

I haven’t as yet taken any type of DNA test – that is a future “To Do” item.
