Dear Christine:

I am taking the liberty of calling you by your first name as I feel that I have discovered some new cousins. I hope I do not offend you by doing so.

I was delighted to receive your message in response to my posting on the Burdon forum. While I need a male that has the Burton or Burdon surname in order to match the X chromosome dna, I do believe that I am related to your husband and grandson, and would like to talk with you about what we each know about our family history.

I would really like to share with you what I know and also learnig about what you know. At first glance, it would appear that your husband's Burton line may be from one of the siblings of my grandfather, John Henry Burton, who was the eldest son of Edward Burton or Burdon from Jacobstow.

I have free long-distance calling and would like to be able to call you, if that is OK with you.

My email address is My phone number is 602-740-3781.

Please email me directly and also let me know what time-zone you are in so that I can call at an appropriate time. I live in the Phoneix, Arizona, area.

Best Regards!
