    1. [WELLS-CT] Updated version of Wells DNA Surname Study Merge Database
    2. Lady Bonita
    3. FINALLY . I just uploaded the newest version of the Wells DNA Surname Study Merge Database. I have attempted to add corrections and complete data from marriage, burial, census records . but, as I updated, I found new people (typical genealogy). Rootsweb did change the URL so make sure you update. As always, if you find errors, let me know. https://freepages.rootsweb.com/~hillmer/genealogy/DNA/index.htm Bonita Hillmer . \\\|/// . \\ ~ ~ // .

    1. [WELLS-CT] Discounts on DNA testing
    2. Orin Wells
    3. *Time To Finally Get a DNA Test? *Family Tree DNA has launched it's annual Holiday Sale on DNA Testing. The 37 marker Y-DNA test is now on sale for $129 but we can chip another $20 off of that with the discounts the Wells project has available. Add the $12.95 for shipping and handling that makes it $121.95 You will have to contact me to get he coupon code before ordering. They also have the Family Finder (Autosomal) test on sale for $59. I have only seen a $5 coupon on that making it $55 again plus the $12.95 S&H UNLESS you already have a sample on file with them. Again you need to contact me for the coupon code. If you have been waiting this might be the time to finally order it. *Support the Wells Project *If you would like to make a contribution to our project to help a Wells researcher who needs some extra assistance in purchasing a DNA test, subsidize an test in the UK when we can find them or help us solve a mystery by subsidizing a descendant of some Wells family, this would be a good time to do that. Whether you can chip in $5, $10, $50, $100 or more, contact me and I will give you the information on how to do this. We want to buy some of these discounted Kits again as we did the last two years and hold them until we find subjects to be tested. -- Orin Wells 253-630-5296

    3. Hi Lady Bonita! I'm still fighting the good fight with my William and Jonathan Wells lines, lol. They are W032. I was just looking at your updated site and did not find John Allen Wells listed under W032. Is there a reason he is no longer there? Also when I looked under the William Wells that married Sarah Westmoreland [W13h or W167] I see that there is William A Wells born on my William's birth date and died on my Williams death date in Jefferson County, IL. This is not correct. He may well have had a son named William but that one should not have any of my William's information associated with him. Can you please correct this on your next pass?

    1. [WELLS-CT] Your support for the Wells DNA project would be most appreciated
    2. Orin Wells via
    3. Anyone who has been thinking of doing an Autosomal DNA test to see if you can find some cousins to help you through some brick wall whether it be a Wells family or some other family line, today through Monday Ancestry has their AncestryDNA test on sale at $79. The benefit of doing this test at Ancestry is that you can then transfer the results to Family Tree DNA into their Family Finder database. Thus you can make use of both databases and take advantage of the matching tools at both companies. The shipping costs that will be added are $9.95 but that is also the case at FamilyTreeDNA. Go here to order: http://dna.ancestry.com As a Wells family researcher we are looking for support to expand our net of Wells DNA tests. There isn't a month that goes by when I or Cynthia Wells are not contacted by someone with Wells roots who is interested in taking the y-DNA test to try to validate the connection. In addition many of us are completely stuck at a genealogical "brick wall" not being able to move forward on our research because we are unable to make that next connection or to connect our earliest ancestor to his family in England/Ireland/Scotland etc. I recently also became aware of some Wells families who came out of Austria in the early 1800s. Often the subjects we would like to test to either help them connect to their Wells ancestors or resolve a mystery or attract some UK descendant with sufficiently deep genealogy that they might be helpful to existing researchers are not able to financially justify the $158.95 cost of the testing. That includes the $9.95 charged for shipping and handling of the test kit. We would like to appeal to those of you who are able to help with this challenge. What we need are some contributions that would be strictly used to subsidize or pay for DNA tests for the above reasons. We can not guarantee that any of these will necessarily help you with your research, but you may be able to help someone else. Plus, we never know where a test will lead. Cynthia and I will always discuss these subsidized tests to make sure we both agree the test is going to be potentially beneficial for the project. There are two ways you can contribute. 1) make a contribution by credit card to the Family Tree DNA Wells Project * Go to this link: https://www.familytreedna.com/group-general-fund-contribution.aspx * In the first pull down list in the center of the page select "W" * In the second pull down list next to the first (once it displays) find and select "Wells" * Fill in the amount you would like to contribute (no amount is too small or too large) * Select the donation type (Unknown, Anonymous, Individual, In Memory Of, * Fill in your name so we know who it came from unless you wish to remain anonymous * Add a note if you wish. If you want it to only be used for UK tests for example * Click on the Pay-Pal button and provide the information that requests. 2) You can send a check to Wells Family Research Association PO Box 5427 Kent, WA 98064 The Wells Family Research Association is NOT a non-profit, so your contribution is not tax deductible. We applied to the IRS 25 years ago but they decided since we were focused primarily on a single surname they would not give us the status. Right now we have two such tests pending. One will help us resolve an obvious non-paternal event in one branch of the Long Island Wells family. Another is a Wells from Nottinghamshire in the UK with genealogy into the 1600s. We will add more as we find the opportunities. Hopefully most will be able to cover part of the cost so we can stretch the funding as far as possible. Anything you are willing to do will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. You are receiving this email because you are a participant in the Wells DNA Project at Family Tree DNA. This may be one or more tests you have taken or which was taken through a surrogate cousin or other relative. Depending on whether you are subscribed to another Wells list you may receive more than one email with this topic. It just isn't practical for me to try to remove the duplicate email addresses. So please forgive me. -- Orin Wells 253-630-5296

    3. Kristie ... welcome to the group. We are not as active as we should be. Most of us are part of the Wells DNA Families: W015 or W018 (only one marker difference). The most prominent me in these two Families are Gov. Thomas WELLES of Wethersfield, CT and Edmund/Edmond WELLES from Tolland Co., CT. Some of the lines went down the East Coast into the southern states then headed west ... others stayed in the northern part of the United States ... mine ended up in Ohio and South Dakota. Why don't you introduce yourself and explain who you are looking for? Bonita \\\|/// \\ ~ ~ // ( @ @ ) ----oOOo-(_)-oOOo---- Just Lurking ...

    1. [WELLS-CT] Special sale and adopting a participant's Test Results
    2. Orin Wells via
    3. *End of Summer Sale *Family Tree DNA is conducting a special sale *until September 3rd* for anyone who has been waiting for whatever reason to get a test. If you have an FTDNA account you will want to order from within that account because your DNA sample is presumable already in their hands. Otherwise just go to: familytreedna.com and order the tests. The offers are as follows: 37 marker test @ $129 ($20 less than through the Wells project) 67 marker test @ $199 111 marker test @ 279 There is no change in the $99 charge for the Family Finder test (the autosomal DNA test) The 37 marker test plus the Family Finder test is $228. Yes, that is the sum of the 37 marker test special price and the usual Family Finder test. The transfer is still $19 I have seen no evidence that upgrade from the transfer to the 37 marker test is changed from $39. I have seen no motivating reason to go beyond the 37 marker test for most people IF they are among the 90% who match with other Wells cousins. It is the folks who are "orphans" who might find the higher numbers of markers useful or if you are trying to get some subtle marker differences to narrow down to a particular branch of a family. But that requires someone else in the project to also take the test with more markers. Order here: https://www.familytreedna.com/products.aspx *Adopting A Test* If you are a relative or sponsor of someone who took a DNA test for the Wells project or if you were the one who rustled up several cousins to get tested but they never had the interest you had or the person has died consider adopting their DNA test so we can move it to Family Tree DNA with the project. To do so you will want to create a new account with the order in that person's name but with your contact information. Just follow the instructions I have sent earlier OR ask me. *Ancestry PDF Files.* I have downloaded all but 86 of the files from Ancestry now for those in the Wells project. If you took y-DNA or mtDNA tests at ancestry you may have until the end of September to get the PDF file before they shut the access down. The ones I have are for the folks who tested at BYU, SMGF (transferred to Relative Genetics) or at Relative Genetics. These were transferred when Ancestry acquired Relative Genetics. The remaining accounts have had their original password changed from Welcome or Welcome1 to something different. If you changed your password on one of these accounts, please send me the new password and I will get the file for you. It is a bit tedious if you have not done it a couple hundred times as I have. I will be contacting those whose files I have not been able to get in the next few days. Anyone who actually tested at dna.Ancestry.com and joined our project after the Relative Genetics transfer have accounts I know nothing about. We need you to download your PDF files before they are lost. I will be trying to identify you folks and contact you about this but please save me time and reach out to me first. *Wells Project At Family Tree DNA* We are starting to define groupings at family Tree DNA that reflect what we have been doing since the original project was launched 14 years ago. Each test will be placed in a sub-group matching the assigned Family code (W001, W002 etc.) so someone can look at the tables on Family Tree DNA and find out what family they are assigned to. Those we can not place with one or more cousin will be left "unassigned". We need more of you to initiate the transfers. There are several base-line families for which it appears we still do not have anyone who has opened a transfer account. The urgency of getting the PDF files has relaxed because Ancestry will give us to the end of September to get the files, but we need to do so as soon as possible. There is no particular deadline for the transfer at Family Tree DNA but if you don't want to have to enter your own data, you need to get me your PDF file and set up the transfer file before we initiate the mass data upload. That will probably take place early October once it seems we have as many transfers set up as we are going to get. DO NOT try to enter your data markers despite what the box on the left center of your account says you need to do. This will certainly result in manual entry errors. It is just human nature. And there seems to be no way to fix this once it happens. So leave the data entry part to me. *Don't Want To Give Up Your Credit Card on line?* I have had two of our participants send me the $19 to handle the transfer payments and set up their accounts for them. I am good with doing that for you. Please send the payment to Orin Wells PO Box 5427 Kent, WA 98064 *Help us With The Adoptions* There are some tests where we know the participant is deceased. We had people in their 80s participate in 2000 when we first started this project and others who are no longer with us and we have nobody in their family willing to continue the genealogy work for them. We want to adopt as many of these tests as we can to bring them to Family Tree DNA. If we have to priortize we will make certain there are representative samples from each of the major base-line families. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please send contributions for that effort. I already had one person send $50. There are two ways to do this. You can send the contribution to: Wells Family Research Association PO Box 5437 Kernt, WA 98064 Or if you DO want to use a credit card, go to the Wells project at Family Tree DNA and contribute to the Fund at the bottom of the page. Currently there is no money in that account, so anything that comes in we will know is for this project OR if we get a lot of contributions we will start a fund to again seek samples in England so those of us who are still stumped as to where our ancestors originated in the British Isles came from. I think if we can entice English genealogists to give up their DNA where it is less expensive or free for them we may make some headway. Those of you who got the free tests during phase 1 of this project. It is a way to "pay it forward". -- Orin Wells 253-630-5296

I want to encourage all of you who have been standing by hoping this would come to pass to now step up and get your DNA tested. Whether you choose to do it at Ancestry or FamilyTreeDNA may not be important. Bot are offering a similarly priced product and analysis tools to help those who are tested to find possible matches with cousins. Those of you who have found your Wells cousins should consider this to help you find cousins with information on other branches of your family. Those of you who discovered you did not match a Wells family should take this test to see if you can find the cousins who might be able to help you find out why you didn't match a Wells. All you men who took the y-chromosome tests should consider this test because, again, of the potential to help you find information on the rest of your ancestors. At Ancestry they have a special price sale running until Wednesday Midnight Eastern Daylight Time. The cost until then is $79 = $20 off the regular $99 price. So those of you on the West Coast that is only until 9 PM The special price will go back to $99 after the deadline. Go here to order it: http://dna.ancestry.com/ Click on "Get AncestryDNA" button in the middle of the screen. To order the FamilyFinder product at FamilyTree DNA ($99) - go here: https://www.familytreedna.com/landing/atdna-landing.aspx If you already have a family tree DNA account, log in to the account before you order this test. As with any DNA test there is no guarantee of success. What you are looking for are matches to cousins you never knew about with the hope that they will have family knowledge and/or genealogies that will help you fill in your family tree. We will have additional discussions on what to do once you have your results and discover the testing company says you match 500 other people. How do you boil it down to those who are REALLY likely to be cousins? If you find few leads at first, what we can hope for is hundreds of thousands of others will take the tests and more matches will show up including that key cousin you have been waiting for. I can't tell you for sure whether it would be better at Ancestry or Family Tree DNA. They both have benefits. One to Ancestry is they have a lot of genealogical family trees and information that may be of help IF you have an Ancestry subscription. I don't know which has the more data sets to compare against. They don't reveal this sort of information. I would also lean toward AncestryDNA because you can transfer your test results over to FamilyTreeDNA (an additional charge of $69). You then would have your data on both systems to be matched. Ancestry, as far as I know, has no provision to transfer a FamilyFinder test to AncestryDNA. Family Tree DNA is in the process of making it possible to upload gedcom files so that they will have family trees that can be linked to these tests and give researchers a better insight into whether there is a likely genealogical match. But it is going to take a while before they have enough genealogies on line to make it very helpful. -- Orin Wells 253-630-5296 ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to [email protected] with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message
