1.   Blake Surname Study – Progress

I continue working on the Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills (and some from different County Record Offices) but have had a short hiatus due to the OGS Conference 2017 which was a great success. I will be returning to blogging wills very shortly. I have had a number of interesting emails querying various Blake lines which I have not yet attended to but hope to do that again in the next couple of weeks. I appreciate your emails but they sometimes take me a while to answer as I know most about my own Blake line in Andover Hampshire. 

2.   Blake DNA Study at FT DNA

The Blake DNA study continues to attract new members but does need to grow considerably larger before it will benefit the members of the study. I will try to write up the results of this study in a way that protects everyone’s anonymity but does make some use of the interesting results that are arising. (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/blake?iframe=yresults)

I do need to have a family tree to go with new members and would mention that here. I will not share your trees with others unless you specifically give me such consent. In the next issue I will have more to write about the yDNA study although it is still too small to really draw any strong conclusions except on a very limited basis. 

3.   Andover, Hampshire, England Parish Registers

Andover, Hampshire, England has often been said to be the “home of the Blakes” when I have been writing to people in Hampshire through the years. When I decided to transcribe the Parish Registers of Andover I was surprised to find that yes there are a number of Blake entries but there are far more Blake entries in Parish Registers in other parts of England. I will begin publishing the Blake family records in the Andover Parish Registers in this Newsletter with this issue (baptisms, with marriages and burials to follow). These records are taken from fiche which have scans of the original parish registers. The registers for baptism begin in 1589 and have provided me with a lot of details on the Blake family in Andover in the late 1500s.

4.   The Galway Blake Family yDNA study

I had intended to do a writeup on the Galway Blake Family yDNA Study but time has once again escaped me. I will attempt to do that for the October Issue. Gardening will be winding down, the sun sets earlier so hopefully I will find the time to work on the writeup. Apologies for that delay.
