Reconstructing One Albury Family

Two participants in the Bahamas DNA Project may have
discovered their
shared direct maternal line ancestor. One participant
traces their
earliest known direct maternal ancestor to Margaret
who married Joseph
Albury. Margaret and Joseph were the parents of
Catherine Albury (born 30 Oct 1815
in Harbour Island). Margaret's descendancy chart is

The other participant traces their earliest known
direct maternal
ancestor to Eliza Ann ALBURY (b. abt 1817, Bahamas) m.
July 12, 1836
Harbour Island, Henry Baker JOHNSON (b. abt 1816,

Eliza Ann ALBURY's descendancy chart is at

They are both a low resolution (HVR1) match which
indicates that Eliza Ann Albury is the
sister of Catherine ALBURY (whose parents were
Margaret and Joseph
ALBURY). The first participant only matches one other
person on HVR1 & HVR2 at If they
end up being a high resolution match (i.e. matching
perfectly on both HVR1 and HVR2) then this will help
confirm this relationship. The second participant's
HVR2 results are expected within the next couple of
