Research websites

I have just spent several hours yesterday and today searching the information on two websites. The Portal of Texas has a huge amount of not only Texas information but a great collection of early maps of states and newspapers too. http://texashistory.unt.edu/ The other website is Digital Public Library. It is growing each day. http://dp.la/ Wayne

New Parker Book (That has a different viewpoint from my research)

  I received a new Parker book this week “The Parker Family from Browsholme, England to Nansemond, Chowan, and Gates Counties, USA” by Surry P. Roberts, Tricia Artim, Courtney Barefoot, and Hannah Dewey. Surry P. Roberts is a Parker descendant and his male Parker cousin has had his y-DNA tested and matched FG#7.    If you get a change please read and then make your own mind up about the facts presented in their book. Right now I know nothing more about where the book can be found nor how much…

  Has any male Parker from this family had their y-DNA tested? If so what Parker DNA group do they match? If no male from this this Parker has been tested, is there a Parker male that would like to be tested?   This Parker family has played a very prominent roll in our American history. Richard Parker, colonel of the First Virginia Regiment, and was killed at Charleston in 1780,     https://ussconstitutionmuseum.org/constitution-resources/commanders-of-the-constitution/ USS CONSTITUTION…

I believe I sent in my DNA findings from Ancestry.com, but I do not know how to find my Family Group, or even if I match up to one.  I have met a couple of people I am related to, but they are new like me and don't have a group yet.

Please let me know my next steps.

Thanks so much,

Elisha Parker Jr of Somerset MD

Hello-  I'm looking for "proof" that Elisha Parker Jr (born about 1768, Somerset MD) is the son of Elisha Parker Sr (1732-1787) and Abigail Turner.  Elisha Sr's will mentions "my son Elisha" but other than that, I can find no birth or baptism record.  I have Elisha Jr married to Eleanor Gordy (1764-1830), and they had a daughter Polly Parker (1802 Maryland-1847 Delaware) who married Hezekiah Matthews.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thank you!

PARKERS GEORGIA & ALABAMA

My Alabama link is Elvington H Parker, traveling to Alabama around 1850's with Henry T Phillips.  Both were born circa 1810 and traveled from Georgia along the Federal Road.  Looks like they were in Merriweather and Troup Counties for a few decades but did not survive the end of the Civil War.  I assume both are buried in Alabama somewhere.  Last located in Marengo County, Alabama in 1860.  The Parkers and Phillips appeared to travel back and forth from Georgia and Alabama for many years.…

Michael R. Parker, O.D. commented on Georgiene "Gigi" Parker Hudnall's blog post How do I find my Parker Group Number?
"The family # is given to yDNA matches. Your DNA test is mDNA as a female test subject. Only males have a Y chromosome, you need a Parker male in your line to test. Or prove a line with research. Mike"
