A New Year and a New Name for my Blog!



This is the first year for The Other Side of Scarlet. I wasn't sure if I would be able to keep up with two blogs but I did manage to contribute nearly 60 posts between this blog and Dawning Genealogy. I am certainly aiming to write more posts in the coming year.

There is a big change coming to The Other Side of Scarlet! The change will be in the title of this blog. I realized in the late summer and fall as I worked with several paternal cousins on our shared family lines that the name of this blog just wasn't right. The goal of this blog for me was to explore my birth family, focusing on the stories of my biological ancestors, exploring my DNA and using it to confirm my birth family.  Now, The Other Side of Scarlet will be known as Scarlet and Dawn. This change will begin today. The link will still be the same.

In exploring my DNA this past year two things happened. The first is that I have been following every BSO and the second is I fell into the rabbit hole during the process! I took advantage of a sale at 23 and Me for the health reports after learning that my birth father died of liver cancer and knowing that my birth mother had leukemia when she died of a heart attack. I have now tested with all three major DNA companies. I also took advantage of deal negotiated by Thomas MacEntee for the company GPS Origins.

Starting in 2017 I am going to write a series of posts about working with my cousins and how we used DNA and good old fashioned detective work to confirm our Bessinger family line. I have only recently learned that I have a couple of maternal lines that are Quakers and I am anxious to explore these lines further and will be posting about them later in 2017. 

I want to wish all of my readers a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your support over the last year and I look forward to reading more of your posts throughout 2017!

GPS Origins ~ My Results


I decided to take advantage of the offer that Thomas MacEntee was able to provide through his Genealogy Bargains for November 22, 2016 for GPS OriginsTM1 (Geographic Poplulation Structure) during the big sales last week! GPS OriginsTM uses your own DNA data and combines it with their new ancestral tracking technique to help pinpoint a more precise location of where your DNA began. This is done through using their proprietary alogorithim and basic migration patterns.

I began by creating an account and uploading my most recent DNA results from 23 & Me2. It was very easy to use and it only took about 30 or 40 minutes to get my results. My report was 17 pages long and includes a brief view of the history of migration patterns and your own migration story. As an adoptee, knowing where my DNA begin is important to me. Using autosomal DNA testing and adding the unique knowledge of GPS OriginsTM gives me a peek of who I am genetically speaking even if those genetic markers are ancient as mine appear to be.

My Top 3 Gene Pool %'s

I am surprised by the high percentages I received in some areas simply because Ancestry DNA and 23 and Me did not show such high percentages in some of  these areas while some never even registered any type of percentage worth mentioning. While GPS Origins only shows maps for your "top 3" percentages they do provide a complete breakdown of percentages. If you would like to see my report GPS Origins has provided a sharable link.

My highest gene pool percentage is 19.3% Fennoscandia. Fennoscandia consists of the following countries Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark during the Viking period and a part of Russia known as the Kola Peninsula. Ancestry DNA puts me at 12% Scandinavian and 2% Finland/Northwest Russia while 23 and Me puts me a 4.6% Scandinavian, 1.7% Finland and 28.9% Broadly Northwest European which includes Russia. See the map below.

  

My second highest gene pool percentage is 15.5% Southern France as you can see by the map below. This surprised me because Ancestry DNA puts me at 3% for Europe West which includes France while 23 and Me puts at 11.9% French German.
 

My third highest gene pool percentage is 13.7% Orkney Islands. Now I have to admit that this one surprised me. With Ancestry DNA I am listed as 56% Great Britain while 23 and Me puts me at 44.3% British/Irish. See the map below.



   My DNA Migration Routes

My DNA Migration Routes from GPS OriginsTM
 
It seems that my DNA has two migration patterns which have been labeled by GPS OriginsTM as "Migration Story A and Migration Story B".  The first migration pattern is Story A in the red. It starts in the modern day city of Nalchik, Russia across southern Europe, the Adriatic Sea, the Mediterrian Sea to an island in the Atlantic Ocean off of Morocco and ends in England. The second migration pattern is Story B in the blue. It begins near modern day Vologda, Russia crosses Scandinavia, the North Sea, the Atlantic Ocean to arrive in Iceland and from there to England. Here is the description from GPS OriginsTM,

Migration Story A
Date: 1234 AD - 1614 AD
Radius: 26.3531miles
Latitude: 43.642
Longitute: 43.995

 
Ancient ancestry in Russia

 
Your ancestors came from Russia prior to 211 AD, so let's take a look at what was going on in Russia up to this point:


The Gothic Kingdom of Oium

 
Between 100 AD and 300 AD, Russia was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Gothic Age. In 100 AD Gothic tribes migrated from Scandinavia and allegedly established the Gothic Kingdom Oium in southern Russia. The area was likely also home to Slavs and other groups, such as the Turkic Khazars, who had gradually arrived in the country since the end of the Ice Age. Oium collapsed when it was overrun by Huns. People migrated from Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia to Russia as part of the migration of different tribal groups around Europe searching for new land and opportunities. At the same time, populations moved from Russia to places like Scandinavia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine and the Baltic states during the movement of early tribes from Russia through to the Baltic region and Scandinavia. The Bulgarians from Siberia moved down into the Eurasian Steppe and the plains between the Caspian and Black Seas.


Migration Story A
Date: -861 BC - 1194 AD
Radius: 158miles
Latitude: 37.011
Longitute: -25.047


Movement from Russia to Morocco

 
At some point before 211 AD your ancestors moved to around Morocco. These are the events your ancestors would have lived through in Morocco.


A Client of the Roman Empire

 
Between 300 BC and 430 AD, Morocco was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Age of Roman and sub-Roman Morocco. From the 3rd century BC, modern day Morocco was integrated into the tribal Berber Kingdom of Mauretania. In 33 BC Mauretania became a client of the Roman Empire, which ruled largely through alliances with the Berbers; Roman legionary control only reached as far as Casablanca. Christianity was introduced in the region in the 2nd century AD and by the end of the 4th century, the Northern Romanized areas had been Christianized. People migrated from Italy to Morocco with Roman imperial expansion.


Migration Story A
Date: 211 AD - 1950 AD
Radius: 158miles
Latitude: 52
Longitute: -1


Movement from Morocco to England

 
At some point after 211 AD your ancestors moved to England and once they reached there this is what they would have experienced:


The Roman Invasion

 
Between 43 AD and 410 AD, England was ruled by local leaders in a period known as Roman Britain. In the 1st century AD, England was invaded by the Romans who, having landed in Kent and defeated local tribal leaders, began to expand northwards. Although England became a Roman province, Roman expansion was frequently met with resistance and revolts from native rulers, such as the warrior-queen Boudicca. In the middle of the 4th century AD, Roman rule began to breakdown. People migrated from Italy and Ireland and the Netherlands to England due to the Romans conquest of England and subsequent settlement, the Gaelic invasions from Ireland in 300 AD and the arrival of Dutch Frisii tribes who settled in Kent.


Migration Story B
Date: 280 AD - 1273 AD
Radius: 132.1583miles
Latitude: 58.984
Longitute: 41.106


Ancient ancestry in Russia

 
Your ancestors came from Russia prior to 224 AD, so let's take a look at what was going on in Russia up to this point:


The Gothic Kingdom of Oium

 
Between 100 AD and 300 AD, Russia was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Gothic Age. In 100 AD Gothic tribes migrated from Scandinavia and allegedly established the Gothic Kingdom Oium in southern Russia. The area was likely also home to Slavs and other groups, such as the Turkic Khazars, who had gradually arrived in the country since the end of the Ice Age. Oium collapsed when it was overrun by Huns. People migrated from Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia to Russia as part of the migration of different tribal groups around Europe searching for new land and opportunities. At the same time, populations moved from Russia to places like Scandinavia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine and the Baltic states during the movement of early tribes from Russia through to the Baltic region and Scandinavia. The Bulgarians from Siberia moved down into the Eurasian Steppe and the plains between the Caspian and Black Seas.


Migration Story B
Date: 855 AD - 1926 AD
Radius: 27.8321miles
Latitude: 63.406
Longitute: -20.287


Movement from Russia to Iceland

 
At some point before 224 AD your ancestors moved to Iceland. These are the events your ancestors would have lived through in Iceland shortly afterwards.


The Settlement of Iceland

 
Between 874 AD and 929 AD, Iceland was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Settlement of Iceland. Iceland was discovered by a Norwegian Viking and a Swedish sailor and was first settled in 874 AD by a Norwegian family. Over the next 60 years all of Iceland is believed to have been settled, predominantly by Norwegians seeking new land and opportunity, and the Scottish and Irish slaves that accompanied them. People migrated from Norway and Ireland and Scotland to Iceland as Norwegians discovered and settled Iceland bringing with them their Irish and Scottish slaves.


Migration Story B
Date: 224 AD - 1950 AD
Radius: 154miles
Latitude: 53
Longitute: -2


Movement from Iceland to England

 
At some point after 224 AD your ancestors moved to England and once they reached there this is what they would have experienced:


The Roman Invasion

 
Between 43 AD and 410 AD, England was ruled by local leaders in a period known as Roman Britain. In the 1st century AD, England was invaded by the Romans who, having landed in Kent and defeated local tribal leaders, began to expand northwards. Although England became a Roman province, Roman expansion was frequently met with resistance and revolts from native rulers, such as the warrior-queen Boudicca.

Blessings From Another Researcher ~ Putting the Pieces Together



I have made a mistake in my research on my biological paternal grandmother's line. I can only chalk it up to excitement in adding another generation to my biological tree. I also think that this is a blessing in disguise!

Fortunately, this week a biological cousin sent me information she received from another Bessinger family researcher. This researcher had forwarded a copy of her own grandfather's research into the Bessinger family of Bamberg County, South Carolina.
There were more than 100 pages to this gentleman's research and it was very detailed, however, it seems that there were two Josephine Bessinger's born in the mid 1890's Bamberg County, South Carolina. How did I miss this?

My biological paternal grandmother is Josephine Bessinger. Josephine was born on 12 August 1896 in Bamberg County, South Carolina. Josephine married Postell Samuel Carter, my grandfather about 1915. Josephine died 29 November 1974 in Charleston County, South Carolina. She is the daughter of George W and Eugenia Judy (MNU) Bessinger.

The other Josephine Bessinger was born 28 June 1896 in Bamberg County, South Carolina. She married Charles Frank Fail about 1917. She died 28 December 1959 in Charleston County, South Carolina. She is the daughter of
John Quincy Adam Bessinger and Elizabeth "Hapsy" Fail.

Now for more than a year my research led me to believe that my Josephine was the daughter of John Q.A. Bessinger and Elizabeth "Hapsy" Fail. I found Josephine's obituary on 7 June 2016 according to my research notes. I downloaded a copy for my records and did an image capture too. I then uploaded both of these to her profile in my database and on Ancestry. I even noted the difference in the parents names. I also added the "new" parents as alternate parents to both my database and Ancestry.

Fortunately this error of mine won't lead to a lot of "cleaning up" because I had not gone any further than the parents of John Q. A. Bessinger or the parents of his wife, Elizabeth "Hapsy" Fail. I will add my research notes to my Josephine with the new notes on the mix up and adding the email and additional research pages I received this week. 

I am waiting on my grandmother's death certificate to arrive by snail mail. I also have Josephine Bessinger Fail's death certificate as well. I believe that both Josephine's are related to each other. My DNA results back this up at Ancestry, FamilyTree DNA and 23 and Me. I have my work cut out for me. 

Thank you Jane, Debbie and Amber!

Think we might be related?

My 23 and Me Results Are In!

During the June DNA sale at all of the testing companies I decided to take advantage of the discount offered at 23 & Me and take their DNA test. I am still processing all of the information from the reports received but I have uploaded the results to Gedmatch so I am letting that percolate for now.

About a year ago I did the mid-level mitochondria test with FamilyTree DNA but that test only said that my maternal haplogroup was H and to explore that further I would need to go up to the next test. However with the test from 23 & Me I now have my maternal haplogroup as H2a2b1 

According to 23 and Me, my DNA Ancestry composition is broken down as follows:


  • European 99.4%
    • Northwest European 91.4%
      • British & Irish 44.3%
      • French & German 11.9%
      • Scandinavian 4.6%
      • Finnish 1.7%
    • Southern European 5.2%
      • Sardinian 1.6%
      • Iberian 0.5%
      • Italian 0.5%
  • East Asia & Native American 0.4%
    • Native American 0.4%
  • Sub-Saharan Africa 0.2%
    • West Africa 0.2%
I find the last two results interesting because it is the first time I am seeing any results in Native American and African ancestry. Neither Ancestry or DNA Land show any results in these two categories. You can see my post about my Ancestry DNA results here.

With 23 and Me you also get all of kinds of reports for different things. I was surprised to find my Neanderthal Ancestry variants was so high, 291 to be exact! I am not entirely sure how I should proceed with these results because it is way above what I currently I understand about DNA. However, I am continuing my reading on DNA and hopefully I can put these results in perspective soon. I guess I am as old or older than dirt! 

I was also surprised to learn that I have one variant for the CFTR gene (Cystic Fibrosis). This would have been nice to know before I had children! Thankfully, I can only presume to think that my children's father was not a carrier otherwise at least one of children could have had Cystic Fibrosis.

I definitely need a genetic tutor but until I can find one reading and taking online DNA classes whenever possible will have to do! I am going to be comparing results from Gedmatch, Ancestry, FamilyTree DNA and 23 & Me in future posts once I get everything pulled together and I am confident in my findings. Stay tuned!

Think we might be related?

Wednesday's Child ~ Me and You ~ An Open Letter To My Birth Siblings


My Dear Siblings,

Hello, my name is Dawn and I am looking for you! I have six paternal half birth siblings our father was Harry. I am also looking for my three maternal half siblings, our mother was Barbara.

Some of you may know of me and some of you may not. I believe our respective parents met in Florida sometime in 1960 and married in 1961. Unfortunately, there was an issue as to the legality of the marriage documents and whether not Harry was still legally married. They went their different ways and Barbara learned she was pregnant with me. I don't think that Harry knew I existed.

I was born in Florida in the summer of 1962. I was adopted by a great couple, who gave me a wonderful life and are great parents. I have known I was adopted for as long as I can remember. I began my search for our respective parents and you in the summer of 1980. My search has been a long one and I can only hope that perhaps I may finally be at the end of this search.

I have often wondered about all of you over the years. Do we look alike? Do I resemble our father or our mother? Do we have the same mannerisms? Do we like the same things? I would love to connect with all of you but time may be running out. I know that at least eight of you are older than me with my paternal siblings were born probably in the late 1930's to about 1950 and my maternal siblings were born probably in the mid 1950's to mid 1960's.

Sadly, Harry passed away in 1984 in South Carolina never knowing that I was looking for him. I found Barbara in 2011 and at the time she was living about an away from me here in SC. I was able to thank Barbara for her courageous decision to have me and put me with a good family. To let her know that she made the right decision and that I had a great life. Sadly, Barbara didn't want a relationship with me, I guess I brought back to many bad memories. She passed away in 2014.

It is not my intention to disrupt your lives or to cause any of you pain. I only wish for the opportunity to learn about our shared heritage. I want to learn our shared family stories and where I come from. I want to explore the possibility of having a relationship with all of you. I want the opportunity to learn about you and for you to learn about me. 

I understand that you may wish to have DNA testing done to prove my relationship to each of you. In an effort to find our respective parents and you, I have already taken two an autosomal DNA test through Ancestry.com and a mitochondrial DNA test through FamilyTree DNA which will certainly confirm my maternal siblings. I am happy to provide this information to the genetic specialist of your choosing.

I also understand that you may prefer an intermediary rather than direct contact at this time. This can easily be arranged. I am happy with whatever makes you comfortable. 

In the top left hand corner of my blog my contact information is there. There is also a Contact Box on the left hand side too. You can also contact me by email or on Facebook:

Wednesday's Child ~ Open Letters


I am starting a new series today, Wednesday's Child ~ Open Letters. This will be a series of letters addressed to each of my birth siblings. I am asking my wonderful genea-community to please share these posts, especially if you are in South Carolina where I believe most of my birth siblings live. #cartersiblings2016

Dear Richard,

My name is Dawn and I am your half sister. I was born in Florida in 1962 and my birth mother's name was Barbara Williamson at the time I was born. I found Barbara in 2011 and she died in 2014. She didn't have a lot to say about our father Harry, other than to tell me his name, where he was born (Charleston, SC). According to Barbara, she and our father went their separate ways before she knew she was pregnant with me. I am pretty sure that Harry didn't know about me.

I have always known I was adopted. When I turned 18, I wrote to the governing authority for adoptions in Florida and requested my non-identifying information. I learned that our father's name was Harry and that I had at least five older siblings through him. I was also told that Harry was a former merchant marine.

I am sure finding out about me at this stage in your life is a big surprise! It is not my intention to disrupt anyone's life or their family. I am not looking for money, or anything of that nature. All I want is to have a chance simply to get to know you and my other siblings. I will understand if you do not want to do this but I do hope that you will consider the possibilities. I would really appreciate a family medical history and possibly copies of family pictures.

I have always been curious about biological families and it no wonder than genealogy is very big part of my life. I am curious to know if I look like any of you or someone else in our shared families. 

You can reach me by email at find.my.birthsiblings.2016@gmail.com. You can also leave a message in the comments of this blog, The Other Side of Scarlet or fill out the contact form on the left hand side of the page. I am on Facebook, Dawn Williams-Kogutkiewicz and you can send me a personal message there as well

I am hoping I will hear from you soon!

Your sister,

Dawn

Tombstone Tuesday ~ Jefferson and Sabra Jane (Smoak) Carter


While in Charleston last week I decided to see what I could find at the cemeteries where I knew some of my Carter's are buried. My first stop was Bethany Cemetery located at 10 Cunnington Street. As it happens, it is right in front of the lovely Magnolia Cemetery which is on Huguenin Avenue however there is entrance from Cunnington Street.

I started my cemetery search with Jefferson C. Carter and his second wife, Sabra Jane Smoak. Jefferson is my biological great grandfather. Jefferson and Sabra were married between 1900 and before 27 April 1910, which is the date of the 1910 US Census. Jefferson and Sabra are listed as married on this census.

I had little trouble in finding Bethany Cemetery the office was easy to locate. I went into the office and asked the gentleman inside if he could point me in the right direction for the plot of Mr. Jefferson C. and Sabra Jane (Smoak) Carter. He went to a small closet full of file cabinets and found a burial card for Jefferson.

 Dawn Kogutkiewicz, Personal collection

As you can see the burial card has a lot of information. The place of death, date of death, cause of death and date of burial all match his death certificate. It also lists his name, his gender, race and age. It also gives the name of the funeral home, the health officer, the superintendent as well as the section in which Jefferson and Sabra are buried and the lot number. I didn't think to ask for Sabra's card but it is on my list for the next trip!

Next the gentleman took me to a set of maps (the size of blueprints) and flipped through them until he found the one with Jefferson and Sabra. Below is a picture of the map.

 Dawn Kogutkiewicz, Personal collection

As you can see, the caretaker is pointing at the spot where Jefferson and Sabra are buried. He was kind enough to take me straight there and told me that the easiest way to remember where they are is that they are buried next to the only dirt road in the cemetery! As it turns out, Jefferson and Sabra are in a perpetual care plot that is fairly large for just 2 people. However, there is another couple buried in the plot, James Daniel and his wife Nina Hendricks Carter. I believe that James is the son of Jefferson and Sabra but I am still working to confirm the connection between them.

Above is a close up of the tombstone for Jefferson and Sabra complete with dates. Oddly enough across the way from my great grandparents is another family I am connected to as well but I will save that for another Tombstone Tuesday.

I Found My Birth Father's Funeral Notice!


I was in Charleston last week and decided to do some genealogy during my free time. I have been looking for my birth father's funeral notice for years now with no success. I decided to give the Charleston Public Library a try to see if they may have it and sure enough they did!

The image is not great and is not scanning well so I have decided to transcribe it here instead. The funeral notice was published in The News and Courier (Charleston, SC) on the 24th of March 1984 on page 13.

"Harry R. Carter
Harry R. Carter of [private address], Summerville, a bail bondman and  paralegal, died Friday in a local hospital.
The funeral will be at 4 p.m. today in Stuhr's North Area Chapel. Burial will be in Riverview Memorial Park.
Mr. Carter was born Feb. 27, 1916, in Walterboro, a son of Postell Carter and Josephine Bessinger Carter. He was a Baptist and an Army and merchant marine veteran of World War II.
Surviving are his wife, Anna Lee Hay Carter; four sons, Richard Carter of Charleston, Johnny Carter of Tennessee, David Carter of Columbia and Mike Carter of Charlotte, N.C.; four stepsons, Joseph Amell and Gregory Amell, both of Summerville, Steve Amell of Goose Creek, and Benjamin Amell of Clemson; two daughters, Eugenia Goodman of San Antonio, Texas, and Donna Chaplin of Ravenel; four stepdaughters, Lucy Williams, Carol Lines, Nancy Barnhill, all of Summerville, and Joanne Ulmer of Florence; a sister, Lucille Houser of Orlando, Fla; and 15 grandchildren."

Since my birth father died in 1984, I have my work cut-out for me in trying to find my half siblings especially since all of this information is now 32 years old and I have been searching for 36 years now,  I only hope that I am not too late in my search to find and meet my brothers and sisters.

Do I Look Familiar Friday? # 3

I am a day late with my monthly post for my series, Do I Look Familiar?. My little grandson has had the croup and I was helping take care of him so Mommy and Daddy didn't have to lose time from work. 

However, this is my photo for June. It was the first day of 4th grade, August 1971. I had just turned nine years old a few weeks before on July 21st

Do I look familiar to you? If so, please contact me! You can find my contact information in the upper left hand corner of my blog in the box "Are We Related? ". You will also find my DNA kit number for Gedmatch (#A435226), my Family Tree DNA kit (#B16054) and a link to my public DNA tree on Ancestry. Note that my Ancestry DNA tree does not show sources but I can provide them if necessary.

This is part of my monthly column, In Do I Look Familiar Friday?. I will be posting pictures of myself on the first Friday of every month at various ages in the hope of finding my 7 older half siblings and 1 younger half sibling that I know of. 

Thank you for stopping by!
