Part 821r – Smith Robertson Genealogy – My Robertson Maternal Line – H1a1a1

28 December 2012

Good Day,

When I first had my mtDNA tested, that is my Maternal Line DNA, I was presented, from Family Tree DNA, with the results that I was H1a.

Today both The Genographic Project and Family Tree DNA results have increased to H1a1a1. Based on the data provided, my mtDNA follows –

Root L3 -> N -> R -> RO -> Branch HV -> H -> H1 -> H1a -> H1a1 -> H1a1a -> H1a1a1

From Family Tree DNA -

H1 – H1 is the most common branch of haplogroup H. It represents 30% of people in haplogroup H, and 46% of the maternal lineages in Iberia. (Iberia is located in the extreme southwest of Europe and includes modern-day sovereign states of Spain, Portugal, and Andorra. – From Wikipedia) 13-14% of all Europeans belong to this branch, and H1 is about 13,000 years old.

H1a – H1a is a branch of H1. Further research will better resolve the distribution and historical characteristics of this haplogroup.


My Maternal Line, to my 7-times great-grandmother Mary (née Whittaker) Tasker, is –

Robertson -> Goodey -> Crossley -> Parker -> Kendal -> Tasker -> Whittaker

The following is the Evolutionary tree of Human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups.) It begins with Mitochondrial Eve.


From PhyloTree.org, I have included a clipped portion of the comprehensive phylogenetic tree of my portion of the global human mitochondrial DNA variation.

From my beginning posting of my mtDNA almost four years ago in 2009, much research and information has increased substantially. (See November 9, 2009.) The information regarding mtDNA is amazing, fantastic, confusing, and, at-times, beyond my comprehension… but I will continue to learn and try to understand.

Part 820p – Smith Groh Genealogy – Parisé Descendant Chart Updated

26 December 2012

Good Day,

And now on the second day of Christmas I figure that there is a lot of organizing and re-scheduling of my genealogy search and research work to do. I have been traipsing after so many family lines that I need to decide which project I need to consider and where shall I place my immediate focus.

Obviously one such family line and ancestry search is the Parisé Family Line. All-things-being-equal I hope to discover from whence they arrived at Port Daniel and to Bonaventure in the Gaspé Peninsula in Québec, Canada.

To begin my continued journey into the lives and ancestry of our genealogy, I decided to update my Parisé Descendant Chart.



Please Note: All information on this Descendant Chart is based on current and available information. It may change as new and more correct data is discovered.

Key - The added letters and numbers to the right of a name in the Descendant Chart, for example, C-P85p, can be used to locate an image of some of the documents as they appears in A Genealogy Hunt - http://agenealogyhunt.blogspot.com/; B = Birth; C = Baptism/Christening; M = Marriage; D = Death or Burial; W = Will; I = Item of Interest; 804p = Part 804p. The small letter “p” represents a surname; in this example p = Parisé.

New and updated data may be entered in red. A red or blue and yellow symbol represents the actual blood line.

Stay-tuned for my regular postings on A Genealogy Hunt. And for a change of pace, check out my other blogs: Quilts SB and Jim’s Trek.

On to the 3rd Day of Christmas. Enjoy…

Part 819s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – The Genographic Project 2.0 – Hominid Ancestry

20 December 2012

Good Day,

Based on The Genographic Project 2.0 and my results, and if I understand this correctly, I am 94.6% - Homo sapiens, 2.6% - Neanderthal, and 2.8% - Denisovan. All three, according to one theory are descended from the ancient human Homo heidelbergensis. And this is conjecture…


From The Genographic Project “By comparing the genomes of apes, Denisovans, Neanderthals, and modern humans scientists hope to identify DNA segments unique to the different groups.

From the DNA Learning Center I have inserted the Human Origins Family Tree presented.


This presentation does not include the Denisova hominins classification. According to Wikipedia, "this was a previously an unknown species. In March of 2010, scientists announced the discovery of a finger bone fragment..."

And the search and learning continues...

Part 818b – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – The Genographic Project 2.0 Results Are In

17 December 2012

Good Day,

The pursuit and search of one’s genealogy and ancestry today is availed many, many different tools and methodologies. One such new tool is The Genographic Project 2.0. As I mentioned in my previous Post, Part 817s, I, we are just beginning to plow through the information and details.

Andy has also agreed to participate. The interest is to check out the possible results of his Brunhammer and Doherty genealogy and deep ancestry. His “Who Am I?” results are back.


The information is determined from his entire genome; Andy’s complete set of genetic material, and provide results of both parents’ information. Six generations from both parents are apparent. You can see that Andy’s result breakdown is of three of the nine world regions. The three are: Northern European – 45%; Mediterranean – 36%; and Southwest Asian – 19%. The total is 100%.

Andy’s DNA results, which should be very similar for all his sisters and brothers, are determined in terms of genetic markers that all Brunhammer siblings carry. This is a mixture of both recent (past six generations) and ancient patterns established over thousands of years.

Andy’s first Reference Population is British, of the United Kingdom.


His second Reference Population is German.


Included in Andy’s results is his Hominid Ancestry. (Hominid is a primate of the family Hominidae, of which Homo sapiens, us, is the only surviving species.) These are based from about 60,000 years ago. The results are pertinent to deep, deep ancestry. From The Genographic Project “A 2011 study by Stanford University researchers concluded that many of us carry ancient variants of immune system genes involved in destroying pathogens that arose after we left Africa.


The overall outcomes are the combination of genes, based on one theory, that Neanderthals, Denisovans, and modern human beings are all descended from the ancient human Homo heiderlbergensis. I definitely need to read more regarding this information.

Stay tuned for more… and enjoy,

Part 817s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – The Genographic Project 2.0 Results Returned

12 December 2012

Good Day,

In my course of search and research of my own genealogy and ancestry I am always checking all possible avenues. My results of The Genographic Project 2.0 have returned. There’s a ton of information I’ve got to wade through and I will be posting my observations and my questions as I progress on A Genealogy Hunt.


In the category “Who Am I?” the above are my results. Accordingly this information is determined from my entire genome, and per the study results, both parents’ information, going back six generations is observable.

As you can see my results break down as follows: North European – 39%; Mediterranean – 37%; Southwest Asian – 19%; and Sub-Saharan African – 4%. Per the information provided The Genographic Project 2.0 can display one’s affiliations with a set of nine world regions. (I will have to find out whether I am excluded from the other five regions.)

My DNA results are compared to the reference populations currently in The Genographic Project database and estimated which of these are the most similar to me in terms of genetic markers that I carry. This is a mixture of both recent (past six generations) and ancient patterns established over thousands of years.

My first Reference Population is German.


My second Reference Population is Tuscan (Italy).


As you can see the designations are based on similar percentages.

And that’s it for this Post. I have a lot of reading to do… as well as, my grey matter is definitely going to have to learn and understand what the hell it all means. My immediate question is "As The Geneographic Project database increases in size, will I see any significant change"? Presently over 559 thousand people have participated.

Stay tuned and enjoy,

Jim

Part 814p – Smith Groh Genealogy – GGG-Grandfather Leo Pariza (aka Parisaya aka Parasaya aka Parisé) – Documents on File

11 December 2012

Good Day,

I would never have believed that when I decided to take on the challenge of searching and researching the genealogy of the Parisé Family Line, especially the Blood Line of ggg-grandfather Leo Pariza, that I would find, uncover, stumble upon so many relevant records and documents. To date, I have been able to locate 24 records and associated documents.

The following is my listing of the records and documents as summarized in my Clooz 3.0 database.



I would certainly appreciate if you have additional information, data, documents, and family tales that you contact me.

Part 813p – Smith Groh Genealogy – 1963 Death - GGG-Grandfather Leo Pariza – Wisconsin Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery

10 December 2012

Good Day,

Today in the search and research of the genealogy of the Parisé Family Line I thought that I would just digress a bit and move forward in time to 6 January 1963. Per the Wisconsin Death Index, 1959-1997, 6 January 1963 is the date that CK’s ggg-grandfather Leo Pariza passed away.

The following image, 34 of 1035, of the Wisconsin Death Index, 1959-1997 was downloaded via Ancestry.com.

At the Find A Grave website I was able to find an image of ggg-grandfather Leo’s gravestone. The image provided was added by one, Thomas Henning, in September 2006. The gravestone is resident at the Wisconsin Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery, at King, in Waupaca County.


It is important to note the ggg-grandfather Leo Pariza was known also by various other names during the course of his life. The names, apart from Leo Pariza, included Pierre Léandre Parisé, Leo Parisaya, and Léon Parisée.

Here is my Clooz 3.0 Report D00004.


You will notice that included in the Wisconsin Death Index is the recording of gg-granduncle Harold L. Pariza passing 24 April 1959 at the age of 51 years.

If you have any comments, information, data, thoughts, ideas, and questions please feel free to contact me.

Part 812gp – Smith Groh Genealogy – 1867 Marriage – GGGG-Grandparents Timothy and Catherine (née Grenier) Parisé – A Transcribed Effort

09 December 2012

Good Day,

At times it is always better to have a second pair of eyes, and most definitely a sharper mind assisting with the transcription of a document in the search and research of one’s genealogy. In this case, a gracious volunteer through Transcribe, a Yahoo Group, has offered tremendous assistance in transcribing the 1867 Marriage Registration for gggg-grandparents Thimothée (aka Timothy) and Catherine (née Grenier) Parisé.

Part 811dp – Smith Groh Genealogy – 1827 Marriage – GGGGG-Grandparents Michel and Marie Thérèse (née Dugué) Parisé – Bonaventure, Quebec, Canada

07 December 2012

Good Day,

Is it providence that I am learning about marriage dispensations of the Roman Catholic Church? Following and researching the genealogy of the Parisé Family Line certainly is causing me to understand, to some degree, how the rules of consanguinity are approached. My logical mind, of course, has to try and figure out how the elements of relationship are considered and who is related to whom to whom… if that makes any sense, of course?

My next billing of search and research is that of the 1827 Marriage Registration of CK’s ggggg-grandparents Michel and Marie Thérèse (née Dugué) Parisé. (Note that 5-times great-grandmother Marie Thérèse’s surname is spelled Dugué as opposed to Duguay.)

GGGGG-Grandfather Michel Parisé, according to the 1827 Marriage Registration is a widower. His previous wife’s name was Veronique Dugué. Within the Registration there is approval for the marriage by ggggg-grandmother Marie Thérèse’s parents 6-times great grandparents Alexandre and Marie (née Grenier) Dugué. Further there is a level of dispensation, I believe, of the third degree provided by the Bishop of Quebec, Monsignor Bernard-Claude Panet. From what I have been able to understand a dispensation of the third degree may be granted if second cousins wished to marry one another.

The following are the images I have downloaded from The Drouin Collection of the 1827 Marriage Registration from the two Registers; the Parish of Notre-Dame and the Parish of Bonaventure.





My transcription is of the Parish of Bonaventure. The second Registration is almost identical.

Part 810g - Smith Groh Genealogy - 1840 Baptism - GGGG-Grandmother Catherine Grenier

05 December 2012

Good Day,

And the search and research continues of the genealogy of the Parisé Family Line continues. This time I veer and my sights are on the birth and baptism records of gggg-grandmother Catherine (née Grenier) Huard, Parisé.

The date of gggg-grandmother Catherine’s Baptism is 20 September 1840. Her birth is provided as 20 July 1840. We are now introduced to her parents, ggggg-grandparents Jacques and Catherine (née Duguay) Grenier. Note that this is another occurrence of the surname Duguay.

Once again I have discovered two Registrations in The Drouin Collection. Here are the images as downloaded via Ancestry.ca.






I have provided one transcription for the two Registers as it appears that, in this case and as best as I can read, both Registrations are similar.

From my previous Post, Part 807gh it appears that gggg-grandmother Catherine received her parents agreement to marry her double 1st cousin Romain Huard and that she was considered a “fille mineure”, a minor daughter. From my approximate calculations gggg-grandmother Catherine may have been 20 years old at her first marriage in 1860.

If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, and comments I certainly would appreciate hearing from you.

Part 809p – Smith Groh Genealogy – 1839 Baptism – GGGG-Grandfather Timothée Parisé – Bonaventure, Quebec, Canada

03 December 2012

Good Day,

What is the difference between a sinner and a fisherman? In French, the accent… Pécheur = sinner; Pêcheur = fisherman.

A new lesson learned… When transcribing a document from an alternative language it is key, for the purpose of translation, that even the accents are correctly copied and placed. In genealogy it would make all the difference in the world, especially if two little accents make the difference between a sinner and a fisherman. GGGG-grandfather Timothée’s father, ggggg-grandfather Michel Parisé was most definitely a fisherman. I can only answer for his occupation. I can’t answer for ggggg-grandfather Michel’s character.

From The Drouin Collection I have discovered both copies of gggg-grandfather Timothée’s Baptism Registration. The Baptism is dated 1 September 1839. His birth is recorded as 19 July 1839. His parents were 5-times great-grandparents Michel and Marie Thérese (née Duguay) Parisé.

Here are the images from The Drouin Collection as downloaded from Ancestry.ca.

Part 808p – Smith Groh Genealogy – Parisé Descendant Chart Updated

02 December 2012

Good Day,

House cleaning almost completed. Just the kitchen floor to mop and polish.

Last night supper was Dim Sum. Not bad… Steamed pork and shrimp, cabbage and corn dumplings, Bánh Bao Thịt Heo Rao Cai, Bánh Bao Tom Thít Tường, Thai cucumber salad, and homemade ginger soya sauce… Definitely a plus when my blood sugar and glucose count, this morning, hit a target of 94. And oh did I say I topped my meal off with a double chocolate double milkshake…

Following up my search and research of my genealogy work I have now taken the most recent information of gggg-grandmother Catherine (née Grenier) Huard Parisé and added the appropriate data to my Parisé Descendant Chart.

Here is the new and updated Parisé Descendant Chart as created in GenoPro.


Note the number of occurrences of the surname, and similar to it, of Duguay.

I like GenoPro as it allows me to free-form design my Descendant Charts. Apart from the art and drawing software that are currently on the market, I am not aware of another genealogy program that can do the same. If there is please let me know.

Enjoy,

Jim
