I am concerned about some Hulmes, Holmes and Helmes being woven into people's lineage.There is a lengthy article online about the Bell family going south with John Holmes, who had been the sheriff of Augusta Co.And we thought that George Tillman lived next to William Helms in 1704 in Pr William Co.Also, the Hulme lineage coming from Lancashire with French roots is too close to the Helmes story.
It would help so much if we could combare the DNA data from Hulmes, Holmes, and Helmes to see if we can sort them out. If you have already participated in a DNA study, it might just be a matter of allowing Matthew Helms access to your data. If you haven't been part of a study, please join the FamilytreemakerDNA study.Please e-mail me directly if you wish to participate. Suem600@yahoo.com
