Valerie, I have a lot of Ryburn information that Eric received from his dad's cousin Terry. (right this minute I can't tell you the exact relationship, but I think a 1st cousin of Kenny's... and of your mom's) It goes all the way back to a Revolutionary War soldier in Pennsylvania. All we received from Terry were two printed reports without any source citations; however, I have been able to verify just about all of that ancestor line. Aunt Jeri has been working on obtaining documentation of the more recent generations. For example, her mother never had a birth certificate. Plus, she filled me in on her mother's family, the Hopkins's. Let me know if you would like me to mail you a report. I *think* I have it all in my database now, with the source citations correct.
Another neat thing is that through this forum we have been connected with a few Ryburn's that are REALLY distantly related to us. One of them is Roderick Ryburn, who has an awesome website about the Scottish Ryburn's. We read all of that before we went to Scotland last summer. In fact, some of what we read helped us determine where we went. In addition, some of our American Ryburn branch is now on Rod's website. He is from Australia. I don't have the URL at my fingertips, but he usually includes it in his posts here on this forum. Enjoy!! ;)
One of the other Ryburn's (Roger in Tennessee) got Eric to submit his DNA to the Ryburn Surname project last summer. That was pretty cool. They thought the results would help figure out who he was more closely related to, Rod or Roger, but I think the results just muddied it up more! ;)
If I can see your email address, I will email you directly from now on.
