Our Genetic Genealogy

We are growing our DNA presence in an attempt to prove/disprove our lineages and we are hoping it will take us back further.

If you are interested in joining us, we have a presence at 23andme and Family Tree DNA (FTDNA).

Our email is dna@dixie9.com

For ease of comparing DNA please refer to the Gedmatch Family Groupings chart

Rhonda Lucas (T1a1)

Peggy Lucas (T1a1)

Rhonda's PATERNAL LUCAS Uncle (R1b1a2=M269 was R-P311) |  (U4)

Tim Carter (Melrose cousin) (I2a) | (H5)

Cousin Tim graciously donated his DNA to us to confirm Peg's birth lineage and connection to the Melrose family, this enables us to narrow down and hone in on potential Melrose/Irvine/Schofield/Wilkinson/Young connections.

As more relatives come on board I will do an actual table.  Please, if you have your DNA done let me know so we can compare!


  1. Hi, my mother's kit#T844512 is matching to the following 3 kits for dna@dixie9.com. I'm trying to understand the relationship (if there is one) between the three kits. It is most likely that our connection is Irish. T399182, T861886 & M041253. Could you help?

    1. Hi June

      Further you our previous contact it appears this may be a McLachlan match, check your email :)

  2. Hi, I've matched 2 of your kits on Gedmatch T861886 & T038927, my kit A102964. I'm suspect the John Gough from County Mayo,Ireland currently sat at the top of my tree is related to Michael Gough sat at the top of one of your trees. Regards Andy Gough

    1. Hi there Andy, thanks for commenting.
      T861886 is my Lucas line
      T038927 is my maternal first cousin
      So they are on completely opposite sides, and I suspect that the second kit is actually on her father's line (not connected to our maternal or you would match my mother, her aunt).
      Sorry I can't help any more than that at this stage.
