I have created a new list for our dna member group at https://groups.io/g/SmothersTribe Am still sending invites but it takes time as we have 90+ members and althou have sent out over half of them, we still just have 14 who have signed up for the group. This is the last message anyone will receive from our old rootsweb dna mail list. If you have not received an invitation, contact me. Thanks kindly Nena Smothers Smothers Tribe dna project Admin 2002-2020 smothersnena@hotmail.com<mailto:smothrsnena@hotmail.com>

Some may know this others not...... I have been mod for several lists over yrs which means probably no more Smothers, Smeathers, Smathers, Smithers, etc lists, boo hoo. No idea why this happened either, no explanation is really given. The posts will be archived that have been done to go search them but unable to post at all. I am hoping to keep our Smothers-dna at a site called groups.io however, I just see no way to do this for all the other sites at all. WE will just need to use the message boards to post queries or write to each other personally. I noticed couple mail lists I was on already transition to this groups, seems to be working for them. I have received invites, so if you happen to be on a list & receive such an invite, this is why you get that invite from them, trying to keep the list going for folks by using this groups site. Check it out before you hit 'delete'. btw-anyone on cuz Sandi Gorin's wonderful KY lists she has will also be gone too. I have no idea what she intends to do, she had a number of them, 'tips, bio's, research' to name a few, it is a real shame for sure. Whoever admin's it has to send out a join request to the prior members, imagine how time consuming that will be as some lists have many subbers. There might be another way to do this too, if can get it done before the cut off date...... get it set up, then send out the link on this list of the site, then members go there and just join up themselves, so I was told. It will be private too, not public, main reason we do not wish to use facebook. Hang in there, mod's will do what they can if possible, sure have enjoyed all our yrs together doing research on our lists and finding answers, meeting new folks, cuzzies.....its been quite a journey hasn't it!

I am hoping to keep our Smothers-dna at a site called groups.io however, I just see no way to do this for all the other sites at all. WE will just need to use the message boards to post queries or write to each other personally. I noticed couple mail lists I was on already transition to this groups, seems to be working for them. I have received invites, so if you happen to be on a list & receive such an invite, this is why you get that invite from them, trying to keep the list going for folks by using this groups site. Check it out before you hit 'delete'. btw-anyone on cuz Sandi Gorin's wonderful KY lists she has will also be gone too. I have no idea what she intends to do, she had a number of them, 'tips, bio's, research' to name a few, it is a real shame for sure. Whoever admin's it has to send out a join request to the prior members, imagine how time consuming that will be as some lists have many subbers. There might be another way to do this too, if can get it done before the cut off date...... get it set up, then send out the link on this list of the site, then members go there and just join up themselves, so I was told. It will be private too, not public, main reason we do not wish to use facebook. Hang in there, mod's will do what they can if possible, sure have enjoyed all our yrs together doing research on our lists and finding answers, meeting new folks, cuzzies.....its been quite a journey hasn't it!

    3. Hi Folks, Bearer of not so good news. Some may know this others not...... If any know of what is called Groups.io am going to try to move our list to them. Several rootsweb lists am on have done this already, seems to be working fairly well. Sure hope if this can be accomplished we won't lose any folks. I don't know much about it at all but have folks to help me thru transition as don't think using Facebook being so public and 'big bro' lurking that would be a good idea. You can go to your search box and just type in groups.io and it will come up and explain who started it, when, and how it functions. After being told of it that is what I did and it worked fine. I have been mod for several lists over yrs but just can not do it for all those lists, this is main one concerns me so this list is my focus, which means probably no more Smothers, Smeathers, Smathers, Smithers lists, boo hoo. No idea why this happened either, no explanation is really given. Hang in there with us til we get this sorted out best we can ok, appreciate all the yrs we've been together in DNA Thanks kindly Nena Smothers Admin Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2020 ______________________________________ From: RootsWeb Administration <rwmailinglists@ancestry.com> To: rootsweb-listowners-announcements@rootsweb.com Subject: [ROOT-LO-ANNOUN] RootsWeb Mailing Lists Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued.

    3. Members of either gender can take a mitochondrial test but its value is limited because one's mitochondria only has 16,559 locations at which it can store a "character" of information. This is compared with almost 60 million locations where the y chromosome can store a "character" of information. That Is a bit of an exaggeration because with current technology we can read only about a fourth of those yDNA locations. But that is still many, many times as much information as can be read from mtDNA. Most of the value I have seen from mtDNA is to answer very specific questions. For example, when I was wondering whether 6th great-grandmother who first appeared in records in 1736 was Swedish or Welsh, it occurred that she would have passed mtDNA to my father who had recently passed away. I got a cousin who would have inherited the same mtDNA haplogroup to test. The result was that her female line appeared to come from Finland which at the time of her immigration was one country with Sweden and both were under the same king. So for specific questions, mtDNA can be very valuable. In general it is more likely to be useful to eliminate common ancestry rather than to establish it. Most women, in fact by far most people take autosomal DNA tests. That would be the Family Finder test at FTDNA or the only tests that Ancestry, 23andMe, MyHeritage and Living DNA offer. Since atDNA makes up about 95% of our DNA, a good sampling of it is best for establishing close relationships. However, since it is remixed as part of each conception event, it is reliable for establishing relationships only for 3 to 5 generations back before the segments get sliced and diced into such small segments that it is extremely difficult to trace.

    3. Ann, Please read my blog post "SNPS still hurt my head": http://blog.ddowell.com/2019/02/snps-still-hurt-my-head.html that I wrote earlier this year. Analysis of ySNPs requires a different mindset than the analysis of ySTRs with which most of us are more familiar. Soon after I wrote that post, I got a chance to hear Rob Spenser at the FTDNA conference for project administrators. He introduced some of the tools at his www.scaledinnovation.com site--particularly the "Tracking Back" set of tools. After you take a look at these two resources, I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you may have as we all learn together.

We are connected to lots of Smethers in the Northamptonshire county of the UK and I wonder if lack of evidence of connection with American Smethers might suggest that your branches didn't emigrate from this area at all. This wouldn't surprise me. Movement of people (especially agricultural labourers) in the Midlands might well have been to London where the streets were rumoured to be 'paved in gold' and where there are quite a lot of Smethers, rather than across the ocean. This is certainly what happened with my family. There may well be richer pickings from your German connections. We have a lot of girls in our family so our branch of Smethers on the male side is getting quite thin on the ground, but you are welcome to continue following the trail through Dad's DNA. Maybe there will be a significant breakthrough one day.

I've been considering upgrading to this test from 111 for my Dad, Lewis Leroy Smethers, but the price is out of reach at this time. I'd like a bit more information on it before spending that much money. What would I expect to learn from it?

As more related men take this level of ySNP test, we should discover the SNP trail down into genealogical times. Dave Dowell in Nashville, TN (805) 215-8395 Visit Amazon's David R.

    3. My stepson Jason SMITHEY and Bobby SMIDDY are the only members of this group that I am aware of who have done a BIG Y DNA test and their results appear to trace their yDNA lines out of Africa, down through prehistory and to Ireland by 750 AD. More test takers are needed to refine and extend their results down into genealogical times.

Cc: Ann Stuber Subject: [SMOTHERS-DNA] Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: SMOTHERS-DNA Digest, Vol 1 Rhona, My Uncle Cecil Smethers traced our roots back to Wales. He went there & did research, although I don't have any idea to what records he had since he is long passed away & his research was locked in a trunk that I didn't have access to then or now. Not sure what happened to his findings. Cecil was the son of George Washington & Alta Bell Stearns Smethers & was my father's 1/2 brother. He was a Mormon. According to his research & family tradition, our Smither family did come from Europe, Wales not Germany. Now to prove that is a different situation. The only way to prove that family tradition without doubt, is to find a true male Smither/Smithers/ Smethers or another variant from Wales that will test or has had a DNA test to verify a match. William Smither himself is said to have documented with the Berks County clerk that his name was in fact Smither & that he was a loyal subject of the King of England. It is said that he did this because he was distraught that his German speaking wife was Germanizing his children & he wanted his position on the matter known. William's wife was Maria Catharina Jeakey/Jacki, the daughter of Johann & Catherina Droxel/Drachselin Jacki. Johann Jacki/Jagi was born in Canton Bern, Switzerland. Maria Catherina Jeaky/Jacki was found to be born 1-Feb.-1716/1717 in Langensoulzbachn, Alsace, France. She immigrated to America in 1732 with her family & was married to William Smither on 5-August-1734 in Burlington County, New Jersey. They were found in Pennsylvania County, Pennsylvania, then Albany County, Pennsylvania & then Berks County, Pennsylvania. The excerpt of him stating his true name & loyalty to the King of England has only been found on a copy at the Smither Archive in Silver Springs, Maryland, which a lot of that research has been disproven. It is also said that William's father was named John Smither of Chester County, Pennsylvania but there has been no hard proof of this, it being another piece that came from the Smither Archive. None of us here in America know as of yet which part we, (the American Smither family, mine, Nena's & others branch), are from in or around England. And according to records here in the states, William Smither was here in America in 1734, his marriage date, but we believe his family immigrated way before that. If the DNA tests from your Dad connected us to you then we are related. If it didn't, then we are not related. And as far as I know, it's that simple. The only way your line could possibly connect to ours, is if an ancestor who came to America actually married a decendant of our William Smither, possiby a daughter instead of a son. That would show up in a mtDNA only I believe. If you are part of the family finder part of Family Tree dna testing, and connect as a cousin to any of us, then this is most likely where the relation is. That is, if I'm understanding this correctly. My 1/2 sisters whom have a different Dad but we share the same Mom will show as my 1/2 sisters through mtDNA only since we share no relation on the male side. There are a lot of tutorials in layman's terms that explain it to where you can understand it better online. I hope this helps you out. As far as responding to your last message to me in the name game, we are actually saying the same thing, just in a different interpretation, Lol! I myself believe illiteracy became a problem in America as families migrated westward into unchartered lands as they opened, the cause being schools & teachers were sparse until towns were created.
