Re: New Thomas/Martin branch
No, unfortunately I don't have contact info for Ben Evans (VU8W9). I messaged him twice in the past when the form was working but no reply either time. Hopefully the contact form will be operational again soon.
Just now I found the following 12/12 match with Ben Evans: 2BVJN. Of course, we don't know if other markers would be a match, but this might also be someone to try to contact if the form gets up and running again.
The Griffin (121779) in the Evans project (24/25 with Ben Evans if I'm counting 389-1 and 389-2 correctly) would seem to be 6R777 at ysearch, and the ysearch contact person seems to be one and the same as the contact person for this tree:
Hopefully she would reply.
One more piece of information: J43M8 Cooper at ysearch is a 34/37 match with Ben Evans.
Thank you very much for your work on this,

I've tried to contact the Evans match from ySearch, but their contact form has broken broken for weeks and I can't get anyone from FTDNA (they run ySearch) to respond to my inquiries about it. Do you happen to have other contact information for Ben Evans? If his posted most distant ancestor dating to the 1100s in Wales is correct, and if he were on our branch of the tree, getting him tested could be very significant to our research.
