    New McElroy Match

    Just got an 18.1 cM match at Ancestry with a woman whose maiden surname is McElroy. My father's maternal grandmother was Lula McElroy, and I already have a couple of big third cousin matches with a lady and her brother whose maternal great grandmother was Jesse Belle McElroy, Lula McElroy's sister.

    This new match has only a very bare bones pedigree posted on Ancestry, so I can't yet see where the connection is. I messaged her just a few minutes ago.

    Still haven't heard from this lady. At this point, I'm guessing I never will. Oh, well.

    Unfortunately, that’s often the case.
