Charlie 'Charles' Miller 1894, Bingara, NSW - 1949, Fremantle, WA

Pop on over to Charles Miller's profile at WikiTree, his biography is now complete, if you have information to add, please leave a comment on his page or if you have photo's please share and add them.  How fantastic, 5 DNA connections, we have an awesome family, thank you!

At times like this when I complete a profile, I feel total awe that we started out with Mum's parents names only and total magnificent appreciation in being able to get to know this family as though we really did meet them and know them is nothing short of miraculous, thank you to all the family along the way that have shared the history to bring this to fruition.  This is as much for you as us, Rhonda and Peggy x

WikiTree performed how it's meant to for Heather Johnson

An absolute marvel happened and WikiTree performed the way it's meant to.  I've been neglectful in entering Heather's family tree into WikiTree and thought I should give it a go and start utilising her Family Tree Family Finder DNA results.  So along I plodded entering her direct line got to her great-great-great grandmother Jane Grono who married Robert McKenzie and WikiTree was doing it's little check to make sure I wasn't duplicating people and SHEBANG!  She was there! And her husband, whom I had and at least another 3 generations I hadn't known about, all documented.  The power of WikiTree is AWESOME!  <3

Mitochondrial DNA T1 confirmed by second descendant test

Update on Peggy's and my own mitochondrial DNA, I elected to add the mtDNA plus test to Peggy's autosomal kit at FTDNA and the results are in, it's confirmed T1, one day I will upgrade further to the FMS (mtFullSequence), but for now because we have both been tested at 23andme.com as T1a1 I don't feel the need.  This has also been confirmed with my 3C1R Amanda Bortolussi who is downline of Zenobia Mundy through another daughter Elizabeth Ann Davis taking a 23andme test and coming back with T1a1.  Amanda has also joined us on WikiTree and has connected with our tree and is growing hers, fantastic to have you onboard Amanda.

Below is a chart of our mitochondrial DNA lineage:
