Opening Up My FTDNA Test Results

Thanks to the Vanhorne Family FTDNA project manager, Marleen Vanhorne, I opened up my FTDNA test results from just our group matches to the entire FTDNA database. Whoa Nelly did that clear my sinus' up this morning.

I won't go into details now, since I don't want to make someone elses DNA stuff public unless we have prior communication, but I found some new possible avenues for research.

Bottom line, it still appears based on the existing lines of DNA test/genealogy research that our Vanhorn/Van Horn lines descends from Christian Barentsen Van Horn (1626-1658).

Here is my immediate line of research

1. William Larry Van Horn
2. Warner Lee Van Horn
3. Witt Lange Van Horn
4. Willie Law Van Horn
5. Dr. William Law Van Horn
6. Thaddeus Damascus Van Horn
7. James Vanhorn
8. William Vanhorn-Eleanor Hiett m. 1790 Winchester VA (based on all my research, I believe this is the parents of James Vanhorn. This is very tentative and needs more research work in Winchester). Can you say road trip to the Shenandoah Valley!
