Focus on Kentucky Sinnett, Sennett, Sinnott

With my S-NN-T surname study database now rapidly approaching 40,000 individuals (most linked into a family tree) it can be a bit difficult trying to figure out what to work on next, so I’m tending to focus either on a particular family group (where someone has contacted me for information) or a bit more randomly, just choosing a geographic area to delve into.   I haven’t yet found an easy way of keeping up to date with new record sets that appear on Familysearch or Ancestry, so a slightly random approach that involves picking a geographic region, and then looking again at the record sets that cover that region does seem to work.

This month my focus is on Kentucky, and already I have made quite a bit of progress with linking families and family groups together, and confirming that again many (if not all) of these families do have Irish origins.   Its also confirming to me that the DNA surname study is really going to be the only way in many cases to take the family tree back further in Ireland, though it has become rather frustrating that FamilytreeDNA Y-DNA tests are taking so long to be processed.   DNA was never going to be an instant answer anyway, so its just a matter of patience, and keeping on working on both the paper trail, and on encouraging as many men with S-NN-T direct line ancestry to have their Y-DNA studies done.
