CS_DNA AncestryDNA

My maternal uncle agreed to take an AncestryDNA test for me and it was just received by Ancestry yesterday.  The website notes that lab processing times have increased.

He is under the username CS_DNA (always google interesting matches, it’s worth a shot) and I don’t plan on filling out the tree.  His tree is the same as my mom’s “Sauceda Romero Family Tree” since they are full siblings and the link to her tree is included in his profile, anyone looking at his profile will be able to pull it up.  You can also see my tab at the top of the page “Maternal Family Tree”. When I started having family members test at Ancestry I didn’t realize you could administer multiple tests from one user account so I had a bunch of separate accounts that I have access to.

I am glad to have another child of my maternal grandmother’s test with Ancestry since I didn’t think she could produce enough saliva to take their test (she was only tested with Family Tree DNA).  I will transfer his results to FTDNA where he has Y-DNA results.

CS_DNA’s test kit received yesterday, although Ancestry hasn’t registered the fact yet. I don’t plan on filling out his family tree but the link to his full sister’s tree is in his profile.

“Uncle Jimmy” James Taylor

Died August 13, 1912, in Iola, Allen County, Kansas.

I received his death certificate from the Kansas Health Department today and received help finding his obituary.  I knew he was part of the IOOF in Cañon City, Colorado (his second wife Geraldine Denison and their son Samuel G. Taylor are buried in the city’s IOOF cemetery) and that he was active at some point in Iola, but it was unexpectedly relieving and heartwarming to see his funeral was well-attended by the local chapter.
