Well I've always had my direct Lankshear line which is of course my father and his father etc.
And I'd researched by grandmother's and their mother's etc as far as I could
Then I realised there was another approach the mother's of my mother etc
Ron Lankshear - my Direct Lines - Patrilineal and Matrilineal
So I guess we should all have the same mtDNA - I tested my yDNA but have not paid for mt as yet.
So my Eagle side cousins who have Elizabeth Eagle/Robbins as the mother of their mother should have this same Matrilineal line.
And I now have it back to several women from Northampton shire - actually around the village of Long Buckby. Best I can do at the moment is a marriage in 1786.
The links are I think sound genealogy research in the sense of the names of children and their siblings etc have agreement. Later it would be nice to find Wills etc supporting the connections but often that is difficult - if not impossible.
