American Indian Ancestry
A family history story indicates that from 1790 to 1815 the Ashburn family line fought Cherokees (Chicamauga). Martin Ashburn was an Ensign in the Knox Regiment of volunteers that destroyed the Chicamaugas in the Fall of 1794. Group of 500 men pursued a group of renegades that had murdered settlers along the Holston and French Broad Rivers after receiving from George Washington ~ $5,000 under a treaty agreement. The Group elected James Ore the commander who was Martin A.’s brother-in-law. president Washington wanted only the miscreants punished. group arrived near present day Chattanooga on the North side of the Tennessee River and were about to return home empty handed when a white captive living with the Chicamaugas for seven years (16yrs old) offered to help the Group engage the Indians by surprise. Cherokees sued for peace. never again attacked settlers as as tribe. The battle was remembered as the Running Waters, Cave and Lookout mountain campaign.
Martin settled in the Sequatchie Valley in 1815. Hid grandson and namesake married a full blood Cherokee woman named Mary Hawkins in 1841 and moved on to former Indian Land near Lookout Mountain in Alabama. Martin and Mary had many children. among them my grandfather William Lafayette Ashburn. By Don Ashburn 2019.
Not bad but could improve some functionality
Overall it’s a good app. User friendly for the most part and a beautiful interface. That being said, it could use some improvements. There’s no actual messaging section so if you want to message a relative, you have to go to that persons profile and click message. It would be great if there was a section totally dedicated to messaging where you can access them at the same time. There’s no notification that tells you when you get a new message either. You just get an email which can get a little excessive. Also sometimes when you try to send a message, the messaging function will randomly just close out in the middle of sending a message. Same when you try to put anything in the “how can we improve this feature” section. When you try to enter cities relatives were born in it doesn’t always work. You’ll select a city and it disappears similar to how the messaging function just closes you out. There’s also A LOT OF INFO so sometimes it’s kind of hard to find your way around because some sections are sort of arbitrarily labeled. I sometimes struggle to remember how to get back to things I’m looking for. These things don’t keep me from enjoying it though. It’s just a bit frustrating and I feel they could be easily fixed. When you consider the amount of information you get in this one app, these issues are minor and I hope 23 and me will fix them in the future because it could be great.
It’s about as good as an app could be that hasn’t figured out scrolling on a phone. Yes, when you are answering questions, it doesn’t let you scroll to see all the answers, making all the research they collect inaccurate. The only other thing that needs work is connecting with relatives. Location is a filter that can’t be applied by itself, why? It also takes some wild guesses at close relatives, but it’s still pretty impressive.
The ancestry is really good and the health leaves a lot to be desired.
The single most important thing about the app is that they keep refining and improving! The more information(also money) they get, the more accurate results they get. If you decide to buy it, you can keep coming back to see if they have more accurate results for you. They don’t just take your money(and saliva) and run, they use it to get better! As mentioned earlier, health isn’t worth the money yet at least, but I don’t feel too disappointed because I’m hopeful it will be improved later and if not, the ancestry was worth the money itself. I was also happily surprised by the noteworthy people in history that you share DNA with. It’s a nice little value add that may be unique to 23&me. It’s also has an intuitive layout that’s easy to navigate for the most part.
Keep up the good work!
