    The only link that I have managed to work out is that Thomas Kean, Born Manchester 1860 married Mary Ann Elizabeth KAY.

    Also, Mary Ann Elizabeth Kay's sister, Sarah Hannah Kay, married John Kean, Born Manchester 1866.

    Mary Ann and Sarah Hannah Kay's Parents were Samuel James KAY and Sarah KAY.

    At some stage, Thomas and Mary Ann Kean must have emigrated to Canada. I haven't found out when...

    Thomas Kean is Richards Brother, and also there is a John

    couple of Thomas deaths that could fit, in Hulme.

    could it be one of his 12 children that went?

    Have you migrated your results as much as you can? Gedmatch, familytreeDNA, MyHeritage and LivingDNA will all accept uploads from other test sites. Charges vary. Fish in as many ponds as you can!

    And - you need at least the father, and preferably also the nephew, to also migrate their results, especially if they have only tested at Ancestry. Knowing where you match will allow you to created Triangulated Groups, indicating a common ancestor.

    Yes PhotoFamily,

    I've up uploaded to GEDMatch, My Heritage, Family Tree DNA, etc. I've also tested with Living DNA.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to persuade my DNA match in Canada to upload anywhere else:-(

    A lot of people have some funny ideas about DNA! I think that people also think that DNA test results are 'set in stone' and can't see the point of pursuing it further:-(

    Holly.

    Might be more the privacy concerns re what is done to your dna and who can access it. Especially after they are catching killers with the databases, the general public thinks the authorities are given rough shod access, when we all know they can only see what we do, the dna matches.

    GedMatch updated their Privacy policy a short while back, - you can now choose if you wish to allow your DNA to be available for searching or not.

    I'm guessing this was after 2 high profile cases were solved by using their data bases; the 'Buckskin Girl' murder and the 'Golden state' killer?

    I assume that they do not have any of this Kean family in their tree? Any Manchester Keans?

    Yes, they have several Thomas Keans, from Manchester, but some of it is guesswork. They haven't ordered any BMD Certs, or anything like that.
