OK, need to clarify. I developed a GOOGLE map that toogled with a spreadsheet and it wasn’t until a few weeks ago I learned GOOGLE has dismantled their CLASSIC MAP features I used. So I am in the process of recreating AND actually hope to make my map(s) work much like transparencies when I was in school. (Not sure if young folks even know what a transparency is!) They allow layers of information to either be peeled away or added to develop unique data sets of information. Time will tell if I am successful.
In the meantime, I want to TRY and link my work-in-progress new Google Map.
What you see is the plotting of JORDANS who have established their branch.
THE GREEN = JG1
THE RED = JG3
THE TURQUOISE BLUE = JG4
THE COBALT (DARK) BLUE = JG5
THE BROWN = JG8
THE PURPLE = JG25
THE YELLOW are specific JORDAN SPECIFIC HISTORIC LOCATIONS
(please understand I am new to web design. If there is an experienced web graphics person reading this I apologize for how novice it looks. I am always ready to learn! If you tell me how to improve it I would be most grateful. In the meantime, I am doing my best to figure this out. I know how important the mapping feature is. Please be patient.)
** NOTE: I can only include kits which are either matches to my kits or ones I am made aware. There is a JG10 JORDAN TREE which claims a NC WAYNE COUNTY/NORTHAMPTON connection. So far, I have not submitted or am working any kit that matches that TREE. I hope as more JORDANS from what I like to call the CHOWAN to CURRITUCK CORNER test SOMEONE WILL MATCH that out of state kit that claims a very specific pedigree. Remember it takes three unique kits to actually confirm a pedigree. Hope all will understand I mean no disrespect to any researcher. I know how hard the classic genealogy road has been for JORDANS. DNA is our friend. And if you have your paper trail, then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ORDER A KIT AND ANCHOR THAT BRANCH! It will confirm your work AND it will aid those of us who are trying to hurdle burned counties and confused pedigree work!
It is one of the drawbacks for the FTDNA JORDAN SURNAME PROJECT and the LAB – unless a kit matches in a particular way, folks can’t communicate with any of the NON-MATCHING kits.
SO IF YOU ARE A JORDAN and you don’t see your branch identified on this map, use the CONTACT ME FORM and let’s talk!
