Hi Robert,

Yes, I think the evidence clearly indicates that my GGGrandmother Lenora Belle Chancey was the daughter of Alexander Chancey and Roanna (Rowena) Smith. I wish that I could find proof of it though.

Regarding the DNA project, it seems like more participants are needed to really establish anything solid given that a single false paternity event in the distant past could fudge the outcome. The estimate that I've seen given something like 5% chance of false paternity per generation.


Thanks for your response,

Chuck Owens
