We tried to record my Bassett DNA presentation last week to put online, but ran into technical difficulties. One of my four children attended the presentation, the first child to attend any genealogy presentation I have ever made. Happy Fathers Day!

DNA Project Update:
In some old histories, the Bazett family below is identified as being related to the Bassett family. I found a male Bazett descended from this family to participate in my Bassett Y-DNA project. Results are back. Not only did this Bazett not match any other with the Bassett surname, his Y-DNA matched no other males at all!
