This is an interesting addition to group N.  This family's oldest known ancestor, John Pearce, was married in London England in 1803.  His sons Henry and William were transported to Tasmania, Australia in the late 1820s. 

The oldest ancestor in this family is Henry (Harry?) Ward Pearce of Pennsylvania.  This family's closest match is with Delaware Pearces.

One of our success stories has been updated with new information.  This participant is an adoptee who found that he had a YDNA match with Pierces, specifically those in group C.  After 37 years of searching, autosomal and YDNA aided in finding who his birth parents were in the Hallsted family and allowed him to finally happily meet his 5 siblings.  

Recently, a new Pierce autosomal DNA match has provided strong evidence for how his Hallsted line fits into the Pierce family in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Check out his success story in the Community Section of our website.
