Genealogy exhaustion

Clip art from Microsoft Office Clip art
To readers of my Australian Genealogy Journeys blog,

You may have been wondering where I have been for the past few months. My blog has become very quiet (which is appropriate if you know me offline)!

The honest truth is, I realised no matter how hard I tried to keep up my motivation for my genealogy research through my posts on this blog, I was still not living up to my own expectations, which were too high. I was starting to see signs of 'burn out', probably because of my tendencies toward perfectionism and procrastination. I had too many things on my research plate and I was driving myself to genealogy exhaustion!

Emails were remaining unanswered, I had piles of books and articles in my 'to read' basket, and my goals for organising all my information were not being met. And at the same time I was trying to keep up with genealogy news via social media, and trying desperately not to miss anything.

I realised I really needed to relax and focus on fixing other things in my life, instead of using my genealogy research as a distraction from other troubles, which I have done for many years now. This is supposed to be a fun hobby and somehow I had made it a chore!

An email from a genealogy contact back in October 2013 reminded me of an important truth I had neglected to realise:  my ancestors aren't going anywhere! 

I have made the decision to put the majority of my genealogy work aside for a few years, and will be focussing instead on other aspects of life. I am not dropping everything though, as I am going to continue writing my Fullerton history book, and actually get it finished and published! That would finally give me a sense of achievement and help me realise my years of family history research haven't been wasted. I will also continue dipping into my genetic genealogy research from time to time as I find it a fascinating and an exciting new field for family history. My genealogy blog will be much quieter from now on though, and I probably won't be around much in the world of genealogy social media anymore.

I've had a really fun time with this blog over the last (nearly four) years! Thank you everyone who has followed my blog, commented, shared, and thank you also to all the people who have talked genealogy with me on social media over the last few years. Thank you also to all the genealogy contacts and cousins who have contacted me over the last 10 years. I'm not giving up the family history - I'm just putting it aside for a while so I can work out some other things. And Fullerton cousins, I'm definitely not giving up the book :)

Drop me line via email, Google+ or Facebook sometime if you would like to know what I'm up to anytime in the next couple of years :)

Thanks again everyone.

Third Cousin Comparison - FamilyTreeDNA Family Finder Autosomal DNA test

Back in July I made a request on this blog, asking if any of my known cousins would be interested in taking the Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) Family Finder test. I was very happy that two of my Dad's third cousins (through the Fullerton family) decided to take the test. I want to thank both of them very much and I hope I can help them in some way to understand the results.

Chromosome Browser

What follows are screen shots of the Chromosome Browser at FTDNA indicating the segments of DNA where my Dad and I match with his third cousins (names have been removed for privacy and replaced with 'Cousin A' and 'Cousin B')

FTDNA Chromosome Browser: A comparison of DNA segments over 5 cM shared between my father and two third cousins. Their common ancestors are William Fullerton/Fullard (c1815-1869) and Mary Dunn (c1813-1858) who were married in Clane, County Kildare, Ireland in 1839 and immigrated to Australia in 1840. Please see my previous post Finding The Fullertons for more information about this couple and their family. 
FTDNA Chromosome Browser: A comparison of DNA segments over 5 cM shared between myself and two third cousins once removed. Our common ancestors are William Fullerton/Fullard (c1815-1869) and Mary Dunn (c1813-1858).

Shared Segments

The Autosomal DNA statistics page on the ISOGG (International Society of Genetic Genealogy) Wiki states that third cousins share a mathematical average of 0.718% of DNA with an average of 53.13 shared centiMorgans (cMs) .

My Dad and 'Cousin A' (Third Cousin) Shared Segments
  • A total of 19 segments shared 
  • 170.21 cM (centiMorgans) total shared over those 19 segments 
  • 8 segments greater than 5 cM and 141.5 cM total shared over those 8 segments greater than 5 cM - the smaller the segment the more likely it is to be Identical by State (IBS) rather than Identical by Decent (IBD)
  • 6 segments greater than 10 cM. 
  • Largest shared segment of 30.1 cM.
My Dad and 'Cousin B' (Third Cousin) Shared Segments
  • A total of 9 segments shared 
  • 73.91 cM total shared over those 9 segments 
  • 3 segments greater than 5 cM. A total of 58.26 cM total of shared segments greater than 5 cM. 
  • 3 segments greater than 10 cM. A total of 58.26 cM total of shared segments greater than 10 cM. 
  • Largest shared segment of 22.89 cM.

Triangulation (or 'Matches in common')

Interestingly, while my Dad and I matched both cousins, 'Cousin A' and 'Cousin B', who are also third cousins to each other, did not meet the criteria to be considered matches at FTDNA. They obviously both inherited different DNA from their common ancestors, while my Dad and I happened to inherit a combination of segments of DNA from those ancestors DNA as both cousins. FTDNA's FAQs includes the question What is the probability that my relative and I share enough DNA for Family Finder to detect? The answer states that about 10% of third cousins will not share enough DNA to be considered a match according to FTDNA's criteria. However, these cousins may find that they do actually share smaller segments of DNA, for example if they utilise some of the comparison tools available at Gedmatch.com.

Matches shared in common with my Dad and 'Cousin A'
  • 4 matches in common between my Dad and 'Cousin A' (5 if you include me) 
  • Of these matches in common, 2 match on a segment that overlaps with a segment where 'Cousin A' matches my Dad.
Matches shared in common with my Dad and 'Cousin B'
  • 5 matches in common between my Dad and 'Cousin B' (6 if you include me) 
  • Of these matches in common, 2 match on segments that overlap with a segment where 'Cousin B' matches my Dad.
Now I need to contact these matches and explore further to see how they might be related through my Fullerton or Dunn ancestors. I am also hoping to ask some of my Dad's closer cousins if they would be willing to take the Family Finder test. This would give more data to work with.
Very interesting so far.

What to do with Autosomal DNA test results - Recommended Methodology (Links)

Clip art from Microsoft Office Clip art. 
Back in July (in my post FamilyTreeDNA Family Finder Autosomal DNA test - Update July 2013) I made a request on this blog asking if any of my known cousins would be interested in taking a autosomal DNA test for the purposes of genetic genealogy. I am very happy and grateful to report that so far two of my Dad's third cousins have taken the Family Finder test with FamilyTreeDNA. One third cousin's results were posted very recently and she matches both my Dad and I.
To assist my cousins and anyone else who has recently taken the Family Finder test, I have decided to put together a list of links to articles I have found useful.

Stop!...Ethics and Genetic Testing - My Opinion

Image from Microsoft Clipart.

If you've read my blog for a long time or followed me on Twitter or Pinterest you will know that  my Catholic faith is very important to me and permeates every aspect of my life. With this in mind, please read on.

If you have not already, I recommend that you read the most recent post on Roberta Estes' DNAeXplained blog - 23andMe Patents Technology for Designer Babies.

Thankfully (and I'm grateful to God for helping me with this) I am not a 23andMe customer. Little hints in previous blog posts from 23andMe made me suspect something like this was around the corner.

I wrote the following a few months ago and was intending to place it on my genealogy blog. I wanted to let readers know that while I like genetic genealogy and I think science is wonderful when used for good, I absolutely object to any unethical, selfish and discriminatory use of genetic technology (and technology in general).
Dear Reader,The following is my personal opinion and I thank you for taking the time to read it. I am very interested in genetic genealogy. However, there are aspects of genetic technologies to which I ethically and morally object e.g. 1. screening of unborn infants which results in discrimination (and often death) for children based on their genetics (their gender, race, disability etc.), 2. cloning, 3. 'designer babies', 4. genetic modification of organisms, 5. the patenting of genes. I want to make sure that readers of my blog know that I have these ethical objectionsI chose to test with FTDNA because I understand they are specifically focused on genetic genealogy. If you are interested in genetic genealogy and you have the same ethical and moral objections that I have, make sure you read about the company you are potentially testing with. Don't just go with the company with the best price. I have read a blog post from the other major company involved in genetic genealogy testing which appeared to imply support for future genetic technology that would allow 'prospective parents' ('if current trends continue') to not only predict medical conditions their unborn child may have, but to 'obtain a rough prediction of traits such as future eye color' of their child. Perhaps I am wrong, but this sounds like 'designer babies'. I would not want to be involved in any health research with that company. If you have any reason to believe that by taking a genetic genealogy test with FTDNA that I am in any way associating myself with such 'research', please let me know. 
No, unfortunately I wasn't wrong. The post I am referring to appeared on the 23andMe blog back  in November 2012: Noninvasive Sequencing of a Human Fetus.
I quote for that post (my emphasis added):
'As with traditional prenatal screening such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS), fetal sequencing can predict a serious medical condition. Fetal sequencing goes further, however, and may enable parents to obtain a rough prediction of traits such as the future eye color of the fetus. If current trends continue, some prospective parents will want such information, while others will prefer to wait until after the baby is born to learn about medical and non-medical conditions. The utility of this test and the decision to use it will depend a great deal on the test’s accuracy, which currently isn’t very high. But it’s clear that testing options for prospective parents will continue to grow in number and complexity'. 
Thank you for taking the time to read my opinions. If you are already a 23andMe customer, make sure you check Roberta Estes' blog (23andMe Patents Technology for Designer Babies) for ideas on what you should do now if you object to your genetic test contributing to this research.

God bless.

Sunday's Obituary - Edmond Joyce, 1916

In a previous post (Trove Tuesday - Edmund Joyce Obituary 1916) I featured a copy of an obituary of my great great grandfather Edmund (or Edmond) Joyce that appeared in the Bendigo Advertiser and the Bendigonian. Very recently issues of the Rochester Express have been digitised and made available online through the National Library of Australia's fantastic search portal Trove.
The following more detailed obituary appeared in the Rochester Express.

Rochester Express, Tuesday 5 September 1916, page 3.
Obituary.
MR EDMOND JOYCE.
On Friday passed away one of our old district pioneers in the person of Mr Edmond Joyce, of Ramsay street, Rochester, at the age of 84 years. Mr Joyce was born in Co. Galway, Ireland, and arrived in this State when he was 22 years of age, and shortly afterwards took up his residence at Napoleons, near Ballarat, where he followed mining pursuits. He then went to New Zealand, where he made money, and, returning to Victoria, he invested it in bullocks. He then followed carrying, then a lucrative occupation, till his bullocks were carried off by pleura. He again went to New Zealand, and on his return took up land at Pannoobamawm in 1873, and lived on it for 40 years, till about three years ago, when he retired to Rochester. During his long residence in the district he was highly esteemed In addition to his widow deceased leaves seven sons and eight daughters. The sons are - Walter, on the Pannoobamawm farm; Edmond at Nyah; Patrick, at Willaura; John, at Wyuna; Mathew, in Ireland, studying for the church; Father William Joyce, a N.S.W.missionary of the Redemptorist Order; and James, in business in Sydney. The daughters are - Mrs Owen O'Brien, Tennyson ; Mrs Wm. Turner, Ballendella; Mrs M. Brennan, Rochester; Mrs P. Brennan, Langi Logan; Rose, at home; and two religieuses in a N.S.W. convent. There are also 31 grand children. The funeral, which was lengthy, took place to the Rochester Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, and the burial service was performed by Father Griffin. Messrs Humphris Bros. conducted the mortuary arrangements.

Sunday's Obituary - Bridget Gilmore (nee Colbert), 1913

The following obituary appeared in the McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser on Thursday 21 August 1913. It refers to my great great grandmother Bridget Gilmore (nee Colbert) (1844-1913).
Obituary.
We are very sorry to have to record the death which took place at her residence, on Saturday last, of Mrs Gilmore, wife of Mr William Gilmore, Tooborac, after an illness of about a week. The cause of death was internal hæmorrhage. The deceased, who with her husband, has been resident in Tooborac for many years, was 67 years of age, was a native of Cork, Ireland, and came to Victoria about 50 years ago. She leaves her husband, and five sons and two daughters, all of whom are grown up, to mourn their sad loss; one child having died in infancy. The large number who attended the funeral to the Heathcote Cemetery on Monday - there were upwards of forty buggies and several horsemen - to pay their last tribute of respect, speaks well for the esteem in which the deceased was held. The burial service was conducted by the Rev. G. S. Moorhead, who delivered a very impressive address at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Perry Bros.

FamilyTreeDNA Family Finder Autosomal DNA test - Update July 2013


Clip art from Microsoft Office Clip art. 
Family Tree DNA have announced that they will keep the US$99 sale price for their Family Finder test. Have a look at +CeCe Moore's Your Genetic Genealogist blog and Roberta Estes' DNA Explained blog for the news.

Cousins, can you help?
With this new lower price, I'd like to invite and encourage any of my relatives who may be interested in genealogy, from any branch of my family, to please consider taking the Family Finder test.

As one of my main goals at the moment is to write the history of my Fullerton ancestors, I am particularly interested in asking descendants of my 3 x great grandparents William Fullerton and Mary Dunn to consider taking the Family Finder test to help gather clues to discover if there is any truth in the Fullerton families’ ‘Spanish’ ancestor story. Family Finder results for myself and my Dad appear to suggest we could have some ancestry from somewhere other than the British Isles. To make more sense of these results, I need to ask more Fullerton relatives if they would be willing to take the Family Finder test.

Why ask known cousins to take the Family Finder test? 
FTDNA Chromosome Browser: I can now ‘map’ one side of
 this segment of my uncle’s DNA as having been
 inherited from our 4 x great grandparents from Essex, England.
By comparing the segments of autosomal DNA where a known cousin matches with myself, my Mum, my Dad or my uncle, I can begin to ‘map’ particular segments of our chromosomes to particular ancestors. As an example, my uncle matches with some known fourth cousins. Their common ancestors are my fourth great grandparents from Essex, England. I can now ‘map’ one side of this segment of this chromosome as having been inherited from those ancestors. Anyone who matched on this same segment could be related to me through those ancestors.

The following blog posts give some good examples of how useful it is to test as many known relatives as you are able.
What should you know before you decide to test?
  • Autosomal DNA inheritance is random. The greater the distance of relationship between two people the less chance that they share DNA. The Autosomal Statistics page on the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) Wiki shows the average percentage of DNA shared between relatives. We may share DNA or we may not, it is a matter of chance. As an example, myself and my Mum did not match with known fourth cousins that my uncle matched with. 
  • DNA tests for genealogy are a long term investment. You may not learn anything very useful today or tomorrow, but as the database grows, as more people (including known relatives) are tested in the years to come, the answers to many genealogy questions may appear. The Family Finder test has a once off payment and no ongoing subscription costs, so it is a future genealogy investment.
  • The Family Finder test at Family Tree DNA is for the purposes of genealogy research and is not a DNA test for health. 
  • Each person who takes the Family Finder test has to do so of their own will and sign the consent form so that their contact details can be visible to their matches. Please see Privacy and FTDNA's Privacy Policy and Terms of Service
  • Have a good look at the Family Tree DNA FAQs. Particularly read the FAQs for Using the Test Kit (and DNA Test Kit Instructions), myFTDNA 2.0 User Guide: Family Finder and Understanding Results: Family Finder
Further information about autosomal DNA tests:
Clip art from Microsoft Office Clip art. 
What have I learnt from the Family Finder test so far?
As I mentioned above, I realise that the Family Finder test is a long term genealogy investment and definitely does not provide instant answers to genealogy research problems.

Some of the interesting things I have discovered so far are:

  • Among my uncles matches are known relatives, descendants of my 4 x Great Grandparents from Essex, England. 
  • Patterns among matches are definitely appearing. For example, I have identified clusters of matches with whom the common ancestor is very likely to be from Ireland. For example, there is a County Galway cluster among my Dad's matches. Some of the matches who match on this segment have only County Galway surnames and locations listed in their known ancestry. I can estimate (but ofcourse not be 100% sure) that this cluster of matches (who all match each other) are related to my Dad through his Joyce, Guinane and Hogan ancestors. 
  • Admixture tests at Gedmatch suggest that my Mum has distant Finnish ancestry. Indeed, she and my Uncle actually have some distant Finnish matches through Family Finder. I would never know this without genetic genealogy. Fascinating! Now I wonder, which branch of her family did this possible Finnish ancestor come from?
  • My Dad has some interesting distant matches too, including Germans, Swedish and Sicilians. Could these matches have a common ancestor from beyond a genealogical timeframe? Possibly. But it is very interesting nonetheless!
The numbers
As of early July 2013 the total number of Family Finder matches is as follows:
  • Me - 228 (105 in common with Dad, 74 in common with Mum, 42 in common with my Uncle). That doesn't add up, I know. I have a number of matches who match neither Mum nor Dad. This is an interesting phenomenon mentioned in this FAQ on the Family Tree DNA web site. My interpretation? Mum and Dad both have Scots ancestors from adjacent counties in Ulster, as well as Irish ancestors from adjacent counties in Munster, and therefore probably share a common ancestor way back somewhere (as we all do). 
  • Dad - 239 (105 in common with me, 3 in common with Mum, 4 in common with my Uncle) These matches in common with my Mum and Uncle are likely just a coincidence and are probably related to each in different ways. 
  • Mum - 233 (74 in common with me, 93 in common with Uncle, 3 in common with Dad).
  • Uncle - 206 (42 in common with me, 93 in common with Mum, 4 in common with Dad).

Trove Tuesday - George Brown vs. Victorian Railway Commissioners

George Brown (1849-1929), born Midlothian, Scotland, immigrated to Victoria in 1857 on the Admiral Boxer with his parents (George Brown [1817-1899] and Jemima Brown nee Crookston [c1820-1891]) and five siblings. In 1871, George married my 3 x great aunt, Mary Brown (nee Fullerton) (1851-1935). You can read more about this family on the following blog post:
An article headline from the Gippsland Times, Monday 25 June 1906, page 3.
As part of my ongoing research into the Fullerton family I have come across the following newspaper articles via Trove referring to a 1905-1906 compensation lawsuit between George Brown, a former engine-driver for the Victorian Railways, and the Victorian Railways Commissioners. I will add more links to this list as I find and correct the text of any further articles related to this lawsuit.
Between 1919 and 1924, George Brown wrote about his time with the Victoria Railways in a series of articles published in The Footplate (newspaper of the Victorian Engine Drivers, Firemens and Cleaner’s Association). A transcription (transcribed by A.K.Peterson, May 2011) of these articles is provided as a PDF file on Mark Bau's Victorian Railways websiteEarly days in Victorian Railways by George Brown (accessed 21 May 2013).
