If Your Name Is Motyczka or Nelligan . . .I'm about as addicted as they come to genetic genealogy (which I like to shorten to "genetealogy"). I was introduced to the topic via my work on the Army's Repatriation project back in 1999 and have been personally involved since January 2001 -- starting with a vanity study for the surname Smolenyak.
I now run or participate in the following projects:
- the village of Osturna, Slovakia (both those who live there today and those who trace their roots to the village)
- surname: Shields
- surname: Reynolds
- surname: Nelligan, Neligan
- surname: Motyczka, Motichka and other variations
- assorted deep-ancestry (e.g., I1c-Y-clan)
