i have 2 family members tested at ancestry dna. RB and AW, both associated with my login rmwilliamsjr85705.
i have an ellis brickwall at
Your 2nd great grandfather
Birth 18 MAY 1847 in Pennsylvania
Death 8 NOV 1890
so i used the search surname function on the dna tab for ellis.
and mapped those matches onto my tree.
i found 9 dna matches that lead to these 3 men
Birth 4 Mar 1603 in Chiselhurst, Kent, England
Death 27 Nov 1670 in Surry, Surry, Virginia, USA
Jeremiah I. Ellis
Birth 7 Mar 1644 in James City, Virginia, USA
Death 1722 in Surry, Virginia, USA
Jeremiah II Ellis
Birth 1671 in Surry, Sussex, Virginia, United States
Death 17 May 1738 in Surry, Surry, Virginia, United States
i'd be very interested in working with an ellis with ancestry dna results who has a pedigree leading to these 3. uploading your ancestry data to gedmatch.com so we could compare our results using those tools.
