So far, with the help of DNA tests, I have found over 400 "cousins" from all over the world! But, no hits on 37 points of correspondence...that is where it really gets interesting! If there is 37 points of agreement, then there is some kind of close relationship, in recorded history (@10-15 generations for the Scots)! Otherwise, there is little recorded Scot history from before 1745 and the Battle of Culloden. My Donaldson line came into America, in Virginia (@1747). My paternal grandmother (Moore family) landed in Wilmington, NC the same year (1747), from the same battle.

Can you give me your DNACase number? If yes, send it, discreetly, to my email address:

Tom Donaldson
Matthews, NC
