Smith DNA Matched Group GRP-I-M253-3
discussion of the Smith Official DNA Project group I-M253-3 that includes lineages that we believe all match together, even when the specific paper trail linkages between ancestors are unknown or cannot be proven.

Basil's wife's name is Catherine Byram/Biram/Byrum/Birum Maybe even Borum in a record somewhere, but never Bynum! She is believed to be the daughter of James Byram a Revolutionary war soldier. I don't know how it got changed to Bynum on the Smith DNA site. But it needs to be fixed. Bynum is a totally different surname.(8/31/2014)

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
