Our repository of COMBS-COOMBS &c. lineages can help you further your family history in different ways. The information you will find in this part of our DNA STUDY is provided by researchers as their best picture of what they believe to be their COMBS-COOMBS ancestry given their existing knowledge base. Keep in mind that different people will arrive at different conclusions based on a range of expertise and success in finding and using documentation. Determining what researchers base their lineage upon, can be pursued further by utilizing our research project AND dialoguing with other researchers, particularly the lineage contact, at our COMBS-COOMBS Mailing List, where we can all benefit in expanding our knowledge of COMBS-COOMBS ancestry. See our home page for how to e-mail or become a member of our mailing list h t t p : / / w w w . c o m b s - f a m i l e s . o r g .
The LINEAGE “SNAPSHOTS” can be ACCESSED either in ARCHIVE I (all lineages), or ARCHIVE II (by specific location or person). The ORGANIZATION OF THE ARCHIVES is divided into alpha and birthdate order by:
LOCATION Country, shire/state, county/parish, etc.
GIVEN NAME with variant spellings of surnames treated as one, but spelled as submitted.
BIRTHDATE for similarly named people in the same location by earliest date.
The next layer of ORGANIZATION WITHIN THE LINEAGE “SNAPSHOT” is:
LINEAGE from the oldest ancestor down to most recent descendant.
GOALS to be fulfilled or resolved by combining family history research and DNA genetic profile data to the ancestry of the lineage.
LEARNINGS what can be validated, verified, connected, ruled in or ruled out as a result of interpreting DNA test results applied to family
NOTES of points considered useful in understanding the lineage.
CONTACT who submitted the lineage, and/or
SOURCE from which the lineage was derived.
There are a variety of APPROACHES you can use to ACCESS family history information through our archives.
FIRST, USE the SCROLL DOWN FEATURE, ON the RIGHT SIDE OF THE COMPUTER SCREEN, to BROWSE THRU the ARCHIVE…
See COMBS-COOMBS &c. that are being researched around the world.
Examine the places where COMBS-COOMBS &c. lineages are being searched.
Study the goals researchers would like to resolve or fulfill to further their family history. These will be focused on what may be accomplished by the DNA study. (There may be other issues or concerns about a lineage in need of resolution you will learn later that cannot be resolved by the DNA Study.)
Compare your own family research knowledge with the people, places and timeframes presented in the Archive to find possible ancestral connections.
See how name spellings have or have not stayed the same within the same lineage from generation to generation.
SECOND, USE YOUR COMPUTER "FIND" FEATURE TO SEARCH through the “Snapshot Lineages” FOR…
A given name in any location.
A specific location where COMBS-COOMBS have been found in all lineages.
A particular lineage contact's COMBS-COOMBS ancestry.
Learnings from DNA results for individual lineages.
A combination of timeframes and locations to identify potential relatives and ancestors to connect with your own family tree.
THIRD, FOLLOW LINKS, WITHIN THE "SNAPSHOT LINEAGES", to our FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH PROJECT REPORTS and our DNA LINEAGE STUDIES.
Specific COMBS-COOMBS reports in our family history project are organized primarily by persons, their families, allied families or associates and places. A given person or place will be linked from the Archive to the most relevant report in the family history project. There could be more. Additional related links are usually included in the report or study you were sent to from the Archive. You can follow these to even more information our dedicated COMBS-COOMBS &c. researchers have provided for several years to our project.
Click on the symbol to go to a report in our family history project most related to the “person” it is next to on the lineage “snapshot”.
Click on the symbol to go to a specific lineage study within the DNA STUDY. This means the person appears in that part of our research project and there is more information to be learned that integrates DNA results with family history knowledge. We call this DNA STUDY LEARNINGS.
Click on the symbol to learn how this family tradition is implicated with the interpretation of the lineage.
Click on THE NAME of the LOCATION in the LINEAGE "SNAPSHOT" HEADING (to go to a discussion in our family history project about COMBS-COOMBS &c. identified at the specific location from various sources.) Remember - the persons filed in our Archive are filed under a specific location since it is the first place they appear in record sources. By going to our reports about locations in our family history project, you will find even more information about ANY COMBS-COOMBS who have been located in records there.
FOURTH, FOLLOW “SEE” REFERENCES WITHIN THE “SNAPSHOT LINEAGES” to
Another lineage in the file where the person named has a lineage “snapshot” at a different location in the ARCHIVE.
Our Mailing List Archive and other resources in our project as noted. This will be accomplished through our Home Page Search Engines, at the address above, Search Our Mailing List Archives.
NOTE: There are also unique study topics (ie. Heraldry, Bibles Records, Military, Repositories, Institutions like Livery Companies, Inns of Court, etc.) that can be accessed through our Home Page Search Engines Search Site.
FIFTH, USE OUR COUNTRY DROP DOWN MENUS to SEARCH FOR. .
Locations where COMBS-COOMBS ancestors have been traced back the furthest.
