I'm not really late to the party - just we've been chatting on email instead. :)

So.....the honeymoon is over and it's soon time to put you to work at a tent! We do have a few things to send you when you're ready.

Welcome!

NEW MEMBERS! Introduce yourselves here! / Greetings from Illinois
« Last post by clthompson on October 20, 2018, 11:48:58 AM »
Greetings from Illinois. I was at the Scottish Games in Chesterfield, Missouri last month and had a ball. My Thompson's migrated from Pennsylvania to Illinois in 1860.  Samuel Thompson and his wife Hannah Hamilton lived in Greene County, Pennsylvania in 1830.

My great-great grandfather, John Thompson, served in the Civil War. He was with the Illinois 106th Infantry and fought at the siege of Vicksburg.

I am not sure about other Thompson's, but my branch is a competitive bunch and like to fight.

Games & Festivals / 2018 Rhode Island Scottish Festival
« Last post by Stirling Thompson on June 16, 2018, 04:02:56 PM »
On Saturday, June 9th, Dottie and I spent our 45th wedding anniversary running the clan tent at the 20th annual Rhode Island Scottish Festival at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Richmond, RI.


It was a beautiful day not too hot and no humidity. I missed these games last year because of my grandson's graduation from high school so it was good to be back. They changed things up a bit this year because they moved the athletics to the parade grounds in the center of the clan village so we actually got to see some of the action.


There were only about 22 clans in attendance this year and half a dozen bands. We were fairly steady with visitors to the tent and everyone seemed to have a good time. I even got to meet one of our viking cousins, a Thomsen.
Next up for me is the Glasgow Lands Festival in North Hampton, MA at Look Park on Saturday July 21, 2018. If you're in the neighborhood stop in and say hello.

There are plenty more pics in the album here: https://postimg.cc/gallery/2ijrp6uz0/

Welcome!  Sorry I'm so late responding - we've been out of the state and then playing catch-up.

We're glad you've joined us and are here to help you get the most out of your membership that we can :)  Drop us a note - I'm better with email than posting ;) and we're in TN......so, sorta south too!

Welcome to the asylum! The forum doesn't get much use these days, most of the action is on our facebook page. I also maintain a Clan Thompson page on tartan Footprint if you care to check in and say hello.

DNA Tests/Markers / Re: Thompson Family Tree data:
« Last post by Michael Thompson on November 22, 2017, 11:30:58 AM »
OK, maybe some of you can help me interpret my results and decide what to do with them. Here's how my file begins:

# This data file generated by DNA Diagnostic Center™'s Dream Array at: Mon Nov 06 10:19:56 2017         
#         
# Below is a text version of your data.  Fields are TAB-separated         
# Each line corresponds to a single SNP.  For each SNP, we provide its identifier         
# (an rsid or an internal id), its location on the reference human genome, and the         
# genotype call tied to the plus strand on the human reference sequence.         
# We are using reference human assembly build 37 (also known as Annotation Release 104).         
#         
#         
#         
#         
#         
#rsid   chromosome   position   genotype
rs1000440   9   101258881   TT
rs10007601   4   164934874   AG
rs10056215   5   163542505   TG
rs10075407   5   2993645   AG
rs10150378   14   44000834   TT
rs10196277   2   149188375   TG
rs1021996   12   51789617   CC


After this, there are literally almost 800,000 similar lines of code. How do I compare this to the other data people are posting?

Thom(p)son DNA Project / Where and how do I submit my DNA results?
« Last post by Michael Thompson on November 22, 2017, 10:59:19 AM »
I've been looking all over these threads and I'm not completely understanding what I see. Looks like a lot of people used Family Tree DNA. I got my results from a different company, and I didn't see a place to post the results in FTDNA. It looks like they just compare results within their own database, with people who've purchased the test from them. Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

Didn't there used to be a big Thompson database where everybody posted their results? I read a lot of old threads that indicated things were changing in that arena, so I don't know whether that still exists or where to find it.

I purchased a GPS Origins™ Ancestry Test from HomeDNA. I have my results as a raw text file that I presume I could upload somewhere, if I only knew where and how. I would like to contribute to the Thompson database if I could. Thanks.
