We are really anxious to get more sign-ups to the project. If you are willing to volunteer please contact me. We would be delighted to hear from you.

The three boys all served in the British Army during WW1 and unfortunately were all seriously injuried with one dying of his wounds in 1918.
Of the 4 girls, I knew something of two of them but of two others I had nothing as I'd been been unable to find any marriage or death records.
Within the last week I have been contacted by Brenda in South Africa. I know now that the two 'lost' girls emigrated to South Africa in the early 1900s. This explains why I was unable to find more detail in the UK.
Thanks to Brenda's co-operation I now have a clearer understanding of the family and their descendants who now live in South Africa, in US and one back working in the UK. THANK YOU BRENDA.
Hopefully the descendants have also gained from this interchange as I have been able to provide them details of their ancestors.

The results show that Charles from the US was not matched to Lance who is a descendant of Robert PYMBLE late of UK, who emigrated to Australia.
Lance is Haplogroup I (Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago or longer. Lineages not in branches I1a, I1b or I1c are found distributed at low frequency throughout Europe.)
Charles is Haplogroup E3a (Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans.)
Derek, like Lance, is Haplogroup I.
Lance and Derek are probably related though there are differences at both the 25 and 37 marker level. Also see DNA Update of 22 April 2006.
The results of the other test in process, for Arthur, is expected in August.

I was able to provide a litle background information about Reginald but this was before I came to be in contact with his surviving daughter Kathleen Isabella still living in Gloucester.
Its a fascinating story, visit Chailey 1914-1918 for more information.
Follow this link to read the specific entry for Reginald.

Well, thats pretty efficient, I ordered the kit from the US last Wednesday, it was delivered, in the UK, this Morning (Monday).
The Kit seems well designed, the packet containing the scrapers is easy to open. The scraper again is well designed and permits easy ejection of the scraper end into the tube provided. Easy to do with two hands ensuring not to contaminate the scraper.
Have just taken the first swap, scraping for 60 secs in the mouth, having consumed no food or drink for the last 1 hour.
Will do the others later, as a gap of 3 to 4 hours is reguested.
All in all a piece of cake - can't wait for the results.

It occurred to me over the weekend that whilst I am encouraging others to take a DNA test, I haven't yet had mine done. Now obviously with PIMBLE on my maternal side there is not going to be a match, however it will be interesting to see where my branch of the COOKE's originated. I have now order my DNA kit and it should hopefully arrive soon.
The wait for results is frustrating but it has such potential to link family groups.

May 10. 43. Francis Lord Russell to Sec. Conway. Pimble, a post-master at Charing Cross, has refused to convey a packet containing a letter from his Majesty, with the writers directions to the Dep. Lieuts. of Devon to act thereon, by pressing 400 men, and to have them ready on the 25th inst.
I need to find out what happened next!

In each case they have been able to solve some of the problems I had with linking people without buying BMD certificates and hopefully they have, and will continue to, benefit from research I have done and am prepared to do on their behalf.
Thanks to Nicki and Kerry for your help so far.
Of course, not all contacts made through GenesReunited result in a two-way exchange. For some it is a passing interest in genealogy whilst they then get on with their busy lives. Hopefully they will remember me when they want to delve a little deeper.
For others there is the quite understandable suspicion about the motivation of someone who contacts them out of the blue and who they don't know, but who wants to know about their family. Believe me I do understand, but for me this for me a very satisfying hobby. The Jigsaw puzzle where there are no straight edges and no picture to guide me.
We can't promise you such exciting ancestors, however it does perhaps illustrate the potential for male line Y-Chromosome DNA testing. If you would like to read the article go to Genghis Khan
Lance and I need a few more PIMBLE people to sign-up for DNA testing to make those essential links between family groups and enhance the genealogy information we currently have and can share with you.
If you are a PIMBLE male, have an unbroken male line and are descended from one of our targetted ancestors, then please contact me and I will pay the cost of the DNA test.
Obviously I can't afford to do this for too many people and therefore it needs to be limited in quantity.
If you are tempted, feel free to contact me and we can discuss it some more. Want to read some more about DNA testing?, visit the link on the right.

I periodically check GenesReunited for potential new PIMBLE / PYMBLE contacts in the hope that we can assist each other in discovering more about the name and the people. Please feel free to contact me anytime.

The PIMBLE PhpGedView website is certainly generating more contacts than my older, more amateur sites. However I must update the references to the DNA project to be more than just a link.

George married in Swindon Village, Cheltenham in 1829 but we haven't yet been able to find his place of birth. A match might assist us in doing that.
Very keen to get tests from the descendants of John PIMBLE born about 1788 in Hentland and the PIMBLE family from the Taynton/Hartpury/Maisemore area of Gloucestershire, England.
In 1841 George was in Staffordshire. He died before the 1851 census which would have given us his birthplace.
