I am seeking info regarding our family's possible connection to Gloucestershire. Have found some leads that point to my family coming from that area, arriving in Virginia,USA by mid 1660's.
There is a possible free anonymous DNA testing available for any male Holders in the UK- this would help confirm our research.
The Holders in The US have started a DNA database to help us track the family connections.
My branch of the Holders have an interesting history and I am more than willing to share several years worth of research. Example: one line had accompanied Daniel Boone westward, and the book and movie "Last of the Mohicans"
was based largely on actual events. Our extended family had several dozen members at Gettysburg, on both sides of the conflict.
Any info would be appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org
