  1. Hello Paul, Are you Paul J Richards? I am the administrator of the Multiple Deletion Project at Family Tree DNA. I have three members, Ronald, Paul J., and Phil. If you are the member I would like to chat. I visited Tiverton, Devonshire, England in 2018. I visited St. Peter’s Church in Tiverton where many of my Prowse relatives are buried. In the churchyard I to two photos of Richards grave stones. I will share them if you are interested. It appears that Phil and the other two are related to the Prowse family since their DN/A is close and has distinctive markers that are strong indicators. I have heard that several Prowses were adopted by Richards families. If you have any knowledge of these I would certainly like to hear the details. Who their parents were before adoption and who adopted them. I look forward to hearing from you.


      • Hello, Paul,
        I am very tardy in replying to your Apr 5 message! I don’t check Geni very often and just saw your reply. As I mentioned in my first email, I have heard that Prowses were adopted by a Richards family. Some went to Australia and a brother came to the US. Have you or any of your male Richards taken the Y DNA test? The three Richards wh have joined the Multiple Deletion project all carry the trait of missing DNA. This is a very good indicator of a family connection it the results contain zeros indicating missing or unread DNA during testing. I look forward to hearing from your and learning more about a Richard/Prowse connection from around Tiverton, Devon and Somerset Cos. England. Please contact me at my email address.
