|I have been researching my family roots since 2000 when I took early retirement from my job as a Senior Manager with Barclays Bank and have built up an extensive database. I have found cousins around the world since my searching began, not only in the United Kingdom but USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in particular.|
I have had my DNA tested by FamilyTreeDNA with the 37 marker test and have been placed in Group A (H-176, kit 64535).
