Would any Calverley descendant be interested in taking over the Calverley files if I find they do not genetically relate to the Caverly surname? I would prefer someone interested in genealogy located in Ontario since the file has become thick. For sometime I have been communicating with Ron Calverley in Surrey, England. Ron is 90 and collected years of research much of it he has sent to me. Originally my goal was to see if there was a genetic link between the two families. Through years of research Ron has tracked his linage back to some of the original Calverley ancestors. He has provided a great deal of documentation to prove this. His documentation also includes partial trees for others that have not been linked directly to the main Calverley tree.
Ron is taking the DNA test and we have one other Calverley who has taken the test. I may need a couple more Calverley DNA tests before I can either confirm or reject a genetic relationship to my surname. If there is no genetic relationship I do not intend to continue researching the Calverley surname but I do not want to see Ron’s research go to waste. More details can be provided if anyone shows an interest. Looking at the Calverley message board I have not seen much activity over the years.
