Marc Conrad, NSFA President,
Passed Away

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Marc Conrad, NSFA President and wonderful Stanley family cousin, passed away on 7 January 2020.  A memorial service will be held at 2pm, 25 February, 2020 at the Winter Garden Room of the Harold Washington Library in Chicago.

Marc was a longtime resident of Chicago who worked for the Chicago Public Library for his whole career.  Among his passions were genealogy and the train travel that took him all across the America to various conferences, research opportunities and conventions.  He was an avid student of Eastern Philosophy, History and Language.  He played a key role in organizing and cataloging the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives, an organization founded on the belief that knowledge is key to dispelling homophobia and the marginalization of sexual and gender minorities.

Marc was a significant part of the National Stanley Family Association and provided much genealogy knowledge and support.  He attended most of our reunions and helped us uncover Stanley family roots.  Marc was one of two cousins who took on the 'job' of responding to questions about the Stanley family genealogy.  We will greatly miss him.

 


DID THOMAS1 HAVE MORE CHILDREN THAN HIS THREE SONS JAMES2, THOMAS2 JR., and JOHN2?
We have received recent word from various sources that perhaps Thomas1 did indeed have other children than his three documented sons of our lineage. Do you know of others? NSFA would welcome communication from any source that could help clarify these relationships. See Page One for how to be in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Stanley Surname DNA Project officially began Sept.17, 2003 in an effort to establish Y-DNA profiles of the numerous Stanley family groups. These profiles may enable Stanley family researchers to find a common ancestor and thus connect. The Stanley Surname DNA Project, one of over 200 surname projects in the U.S. was created to take advantage of this new scientific approach, in an attempt to determine which Stanley family groups are related and have common ancestors.

Scientists have discovered that the DNA in the Y-chromosome, found only in males, is passed from father to son, virtually unchanged, except for rare (and random) mutations. By testing these chromosome segments, it is possible to determine if two or more living males are related, and approximately when they had a common ancestor. The purpose of the project of the Stanley Surname DNA Project is to provide an opportunity for males with the Stanley surname to participate in a DNA test, with the possibility of matching the DNA of other participants and thus establishing a possible genetic link between two or more participants. Female Stanley descendants are encouraged to participate by having a male Stanley relative take the test.
