In Reply to: Merrell and Merrill Family Genealogical Testing by David Merrell of 473

While interested in genealogy, many of us know little about DNA testing. Your investigations sound fascinating but appear to present a mystery (correct me if I'm wrong). While circumstantial evidence points to the likelyhood of your being related to the Staten Island Merrells, the DNA evidence apparrently shows otherwise. Logic tells me that there is something missing in this equation. DNA testing aside, chances are that you are indeed related to Richard Merrell. Are you ruling out further testing regarding that line of Merrells based on past tests?
Can you keep us updated on this forum as well as your website? Also, can you add an e-mail link to your site? Personally, I am related to Richard paternally until my grandmother Sarah Ethel Merrell (Staten Island) at which time my link becomes a maternal one. My cousin, Bill Richards, is the unofficial historian of this branch of the family. If you have yet to contact him, he is a wealth of information.
