Genealogy

I have been researching the Ratiff genealogy for our line for some time. I have traced our linage back to Emanuel Ratliff who came to America from England in the mid 1600's.
Zephaniah Ratliff migrated to Kentucky in the late 1700's and settled in what is now Bath County.
My cousin Fred Ratliff and I both submitted our DNA to Family Tree. Believe it or not, it indicated that we are related.
If you know for sure that you are related to me, then you wouldn't have to submit your DNA since it will duplicate our effort, your choice.
If you are interested in seeing, or contributing to my tree, let me know.
