RE: DNA & Bibles

Thank you for your mail. Not sure about DNA tests. As a Quarterman living in
England I am more interested in identifying which of your ancestors
emigrated from England to the US, when and which family/place they can be
linked to in England at that time. Do you have information on these lines?
i.e. Robert Quarterman who appeared in South Carolina in 1698 for example,
was he christened/baptised in England ? Are there any immigration records
dating back this far?

Dear Quarterman Researchers,

A thought ocurred to me about our search for ancestors of the Robert
Quarterman who appears in South Carolina around 1698. Why not use some sort
of DNA testing to check for interrelation between our various branches of
the Quarterman family? I think I saw an ad in Atlanta for some such. In lack
of further historical records, this could at least establish if we're on the
right track or not in some of our search. Does anybody know about such
science being used in genealogical research (apart from the Romanovs & the
British Royal Family)?

Also, for your information, my brother and I own two Quarterman Family
Bibles, dating from roughly 1780 and 1850, both of which have notes on
family marriages, baptisms, deaths, births, etc. in our branch of the
Quarterman family. If there's interest, we could make copies or a transcript
available. This information does not differ from the information available
in the Stacy history, and could possibly have been a source for that, as
these books were in Savannah until maybe around 1975. They are now in
Jackson, MS, and if there's interest, I'll provide more detailed info when I
can, as this is off the top of my head.
