HOUSTON, Texas (GBT) — Tim G.'s paternal line is likely to include Middle Eastern origins, a Y-DNA analysis has shown. FamilyTreeDNA, a genealogical DNA testing company based in Houston, Texas, returned the results of Tim G.'s Y-37 DNA analysis last Tuesday, August 2. Tim G. ordered the analysis in July. The analysis identified 37 Y-DNA markers to predict Tim G.'s Haplogroup to be J-M267, which is also known as J1.
This week's Find-a-Grave photography focused on fulfilling requests at Philadelphia National Cemetery, which is near my home in Jenkintown. Some users have been very busy adding photo requests to the cemetery, likely in the general interest of moving the viirtual cemetery toward being fully photographed. Other users still are claiming these photo requests and actually not leaving so many for me to claim. That's good. It means that photographing the Philadelphia National Cemetery will be a team effort.
