I’ve been doing a lot of genealogy work on my mother’s side of the family (mostly using Geni but also FamilySearch).
Recently, I put both mine and her 23andme kits into GEDmatch and you came up on ones we share, which means you’re definitely related to my mom and I through her side of the family.
I searched your email on google and saw your post on
A LOT of her side comes from CT. I’ll see how specific I can get:
My mother’s mother’s mother’s side is probably a dead end – German immigrants from 19thC.
My mother’s mother’s father’s side though, is Rogers. These particular Rogers spent a LOT of generations in Branford, New Haven County, Connecticut, United States
My mother’s father’s mother’s side quickly ends up in Glasgow, Scotland (Shaw, Campbell)
My mother’s father’s father’s side is Luster, then Crane as I go back, and is mostly in Elizabeth, NJ area.
So, my guess is we have a mutual relative to Rogers in Branford, New Haven, CT a few generations back.

Oh, I just reread. Ireland? Yes. Masterson Tierney – hm, I have a few Irish just a couple of gens back. Might be possible to connect the puzzle.
