    1. [HOFFPAUIR] Easton Barney Hoffpauir family
    2. Charlie Hoffpauir
    3. There is a Hoffpauir book written by D. Roy Harrington (a descendant of Easton) that I've scanned and added to the 2019 Collection of Hoffpauir information. In this book, Roy includes the family of James Curtis Hoffpauir, and includes two children of James, Kathryn and Edward Lee. . He also indicates Edward Lee married Nancy Lynn Webb, and had two children, Edward Lee Jr. and Debbie Lynn. There is nothing in the book to indicate anything unusual about this family, but I was recently contacted by Debbie Lynn asking me for more information about her father, Edward Lee Hoffpauir who died when she was a young child. It seems that Edward Lee was adopted by James Curtis, and Debbie is seeking more information about his birth parents. Supposedly, he was born to a Richard. I'm trying to locate any one who has any information about this. -- Charlie Hoffpauir http://my.rootsmagic.com/CRHoffpauir/ http://sites.rootsmagic.com/CharlieHoffpauir/ http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~charlieh/ https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/hoffpauir Download the Hoffpauir Family CD: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtjEABxG0hlcbVe86sypodjoPUQ

    1. [HOFFPAUIR] Fwd: DNA test specials
    2. Charlie Hoffpauir
    3. FYI, I sent this out earlier (Aug 2) and at that time, Ancestry's DNA test was still $99. They just announced a summer special (until Aug 26) of $59. -------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: [HOFFPAUIR] DNA test specials Date: Fri, 2 Aug 2019 11:40:30 -0500 From: Charlie Hoffpauir <crhoffpauir@gmail.com> Reply-To: CRHoffpauir@gmail.com, About descendants of Thomas Hoffpauir <hoffpauir@rootsweb.com> To: Hoffpauir <hoffpauir@rootsweb.com> A FYI for anyone considering getting a DNA test. The most popular test (Autosomal DNA) is now on sale at two different testing labs Both Family Tree DNA (https://www.familytreedna.com) and My Heritage (www.myheritage.com) are offering their basic Autosomal DNA test for $59.00, normally $79.00. I've tested with both labs as well as with Ancestry.com, and I think they are virtually the same. If you know of kin who have tested with one of the sites, it's convenient to use the same site, this makes it easier to compare results. However, with any of the sites, they permit you to download the raw data and upload it to GEDMATCH, a free site that is used for comparisons. The GEDMATCH site is what was used in most of the police DNA news programs where they are solving "cold cases" with DNA. -- Charlie Hoffpauir http://my.rootsmagic.com/CRHoffpauir/ http://sites.rootsmagic.com/CharlieHoffpauir/ http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~charlieh/ https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/hoffpauir Download the Hoffpauir Family CD: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtjEABxG0hlcbVe86sypodjoPUQ _

    1. [HOFFPAUIR] Update - genealogy Information available for download
    2. Charlie Hoffpauir
    3. In past years I've produced a CD of Hoffpauir genealogy information for the annual Hoffpauir Reunion. If you have a physical copy of one of those CDs, you know how much information was contained in it. As the years went by, more and more information became available, and the content of the CD had to be restricted to avoid trying to collect more information than the CD could hold. This year, the threshold of content was exceeded. It just won't fit on a CD any longer. So, the information is no longer called a CD, rather just a collection. The collection is in the form of an ISO file, and has been uploaded to the cloud. Because dealing with an ISO file is a little bit different, I've also uploaded instructions on how to handle it. And, this year the collection contains a new interactive genealogy section that I think will become very popular. I've also uploaded a PDF file that explains how to get started using the genealogy section, which allows the user to browse through my genealogy file. The links to the uploaded information are as follows: Link to how to use an ISO file: https://1drv.ms/b/s!AtjEABxG0hlcjnF6f5NGrqg6UkMo Link to how to use the browse feature in the collection: https://1drv.ms/b/s!AtjEABxG0hlcjnMi6tExSK_A8voa Link to download the Collection as an ISO file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtjEABxG0hlcjnItyqbWmoLrsAKu The Hoffpauir reunion is just a few weeks away (Labor Day, Sep 2). I'll pass out this information at the reunion, but this is a preview available to the subscribers of the Hoffpauir mail list. If you have comments, good or bad, about the new collection, post them here or send them to me directly. -- Charlie Hoffpauir http://my.rootsmagic.com/CRHoffpauir/ http://sites.rootsmagic.com/CharlieHoffpauir/ http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~charlieh/ https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/hoffpauir Download the Hoffpauir Family CD: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtjEABxG0hlcbVe86sypodjoPUQ

I recently learned that the home was featured in an article in the local paper back in 2014. It seems a Hoffpauir family bought the house and restored it, and is living in it. It's a very interesting story because it gives a lot of information about the background of the house. But it doesn't give a lot of information about the Hoffpauir family that is now living there.

    2. Charlie: Here are my results thru Ancestry. They seem to keep changing them frequently. At first I was showing significant Scandinavian result which made sense because my paternal great-grandmother's family was from Sweden and I also have Swiss in other parts of the family. I also have quite a bit of French in my background. 23 and me results are similar; however they do show the French separately. I cannot find out I have African DNA which they define as Ivory Coast and Ghana and Benin/Togo I have questioned the whole DNA process these two places offer. Let me know if you have other thoughts or findings.

Still, the similarities between the results are worth considering. Particularly when my genealogy is pretty well complete for 6+ generations back, and in those generations there are no known British, Welsh, or Scandinavian ancestors. The genealogy on my Mothers side is almost entirely Acadian, that is French, and so should be entirely West Europe. Of course, one must include the fact that the Vikings spread their DNA down through Britain and France, so perhaps that should account for a bit of Scandinavian DNA. > > So my question becomes, if Thomas Hoffpauir is of German ancestry, why do I have so much British DNA? > > I know a lot of my cousins have tested their DNA at these locations, and possibly also at 23 and me (which I have not used). I'm wondering if any of you have received similar results, ie, British DNA that you can't explain by your genealogy? I f you haven't tested already, I strongly recommend that you do, it provides some very interesting information. I don't have a recommendation on which service to use, I suggest you look at the way each breaks down the ethnicity and see which method you prefer. And please, contact me if you have additional information.

FYI here are the results from each firm: My heritage: 89,9 % Europe 63% North and West Europe 42.9% Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 20.1 % Scandinavian 14.4% South Europe 11,8 % Iberian 2.6 % Italian 12.5 % East Europe 7.2 % Baltic 5.3 % Balkan 7.3 % African 5.9 % North African 1.4 % West African 1.4 % Nigerian 2.8 % America 2,8 % Central, South America, Mesoamerican and Andean Ancestry.com: 51 % France 42 % England, Wales, & Northwestern Europe 7% Ireland and Scotland FTDNA.COM (Family finder): 100 % Europe 13 % British Isles 8 % East Europe 18 % Scandinavia 4 % Southeast Europe 0 % Iberia 58 % West and Central Europe Now, obviously the differences indicate that this must not be a very accurate process. Still, the similarities between the results are worth considering. Particularly when my genealogy is pretty well complete for 6+ generations back, and in those generations there are no known British, Welsh, or Scandinavian ancestors. The genealogy on my Mothers side is almost entirely Acadian, that is French, and so should be entirely West Europe. Of course, one must include the fact that the Vikings spread their DNA down through Britain and France, so perhaps that should account for a bit of Scandinavian DNA. So my question becomes, if Thomas Hoffpauir is of German ancestry, why do I have so much British DNA? I know a lot of my cousins have tested their DNA at these locations, and possibly also at 23 and me (which I have not used). I’m wondering if any of you have received similar results, ie, British DNA that you can’t explain by your genealogy? I f you haven’t tested already, I strongly recommend that you do, it provides some very interesting information. I don’t have a recommendation on which service to use, I suggest you look at the way each breaks down the ethnicity and see which method you prefer. And please, contact me if you have additional information. Send an email directly to me if you don’t want to post your DNA information for everyone to see. -- Charlie Hoffpauir http://my.rootsmagic.com/CRHoffpauir/ http://sites.rootsmagic.com/CharlieHoffpauir/ http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~charlieh/ https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/hoffpauir Download the Hoffpauir Family CD: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4k8r7iei92yjhbd/AAArGuzvRYIX7WZUJI3Y6Av5a?dl=0
