Finding Annie Jane’s Family” Using DNA with Traditional Evidence to Establish Proof
Wednesday, August 19th from 6 pm – 7 pm
Southern 18th & some 19th-century females are notoriously difficult to research. Annie Jane was one of these. She was first married in 1843, in Calhoun County, Alabama. Her life was lived in poverty in rural farm areas. Over the course of her 100+ year life, only three records were created by her, causing brick walls for her descendants and great difficulty in establishing kinships, even of her children to her. DNA test results from those who believed they descended from her and records created by other lines found through DNA matching crumbled Annie’s brick wall. Ultimately, not only were her children identified, but also her parents and siblings – all with the use of DNA.
