My 50th BIRTHDAY wish…..


​For my 50th BIRTHDAY – Sept 18th:

My birthday wish is that YOU, EACH & every one of you, do 5 good deed’s for me~ 

YEP this is what I want!!!

Rules: Do it with love – no return…. like helping our elderly… mow, rake… visit! 

Do it just because YOU can~ 

Anything for the better good of OUR EARTH~

Mother Nature is teaching us how HUMANKIND, REGARDLESS OF RACE/BELIEFS CAN come together AS ONE, STAND AS ONE & work together AS ONE for PRESERVATION of our race~ As we see the devastation here on USA soil – destruction  is happening across the world….. instead of hate, discord…war, we need to remember these hard times and the good we can do working together~ 

My heart is heavy as I watch tv today… As a history buff I have researched many storms, sicknesses & wars thru the years… and my conclusion is we keep repeating our mistake… over & over again! Time to start focusing on our one true solid proof of our life = what created us…. for dust we came & dust we will become… Mother Nature needs all our help…. we are the ones destroying this planet! 

If a planet could be pissed…. I’d say our’s is!!!!

What one THING could you do, change, help with or fix to make a better world????

As I am turning 50…. 

I am reflecting on my years…

Did I do enough? 

I know I will… 

FROM here…. on out~


Those that steal, kill or hurt in anyway… remember…. it is your soul that lives with the burden…. you will pay in one form or another for your action… it will haunt your mind forever… love is the one true choice…. find peace, try being the better person… we alone chose our action, we alone have to live with those choices~ 

TRUST me when I say….. you never forget~ 

Free viewing of my research book: James Chagum – Chief of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village is NOW available~


Coni Dubois - Book CoverI have put a free viewing for my research book online for everyone: James Chagum – Chief of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village, is now able to be viewed on any computer, cell or tablet~
This research book is 25+ years in th
e making and I am SUPER excited & proud of this final edition~
Thru the years I have printed out these research books, to fix and correct the errors and it has led to making of this!
I was seeing the story unfold as I hunted down our ancestors… page by page, person to person… I was uncovering a beautiful story… what was believed to be a myth… was real and I was a descendant of that story…. the Barkhamsted Light House People~

This research book is dedicated to my Father…. May he rest in peace knowing…
“I found our Native American Roots” and I know in my heart I will continue doing genealogy til MY dying days…
Due to this being 598 pages and VERY extensive, I am SELF publishing this: For a printed version it will be $150.00 (Sponsorship – which includes a stylus pen/personal lineage IF a descendant & I will sign the book, along with a surprise 🙂 ) I am also putting out a digital version which will be $50.00 (best to just click this link – it is free to view online for anyone! It can’t be downloaded, edited or printed thou… printing will only be done by me~) All money received will go to help me do more research and take needed trips.
Please let me know what you think of this research book… This is actually the 1st one I feel is publishing quality.

This Research Book can also be found on tab above: Coni’s Research Books

In that tab look for:
Barkhamsted Lighthouse – Barkhamsted CT
NEW!! James Chagum – Chief of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village by Coni Dubois – Updated 8/1/17

Note: Printed version of this research book comes in 2 parts – DUE to so many pages had to put it into 2 parts, which I find is great because it gives me a reference book in my hands while looking at the main research book.

Update on my Fan Chart… ALMOST DONE!


After many months of working on my 7 Generation Fan Chart… I am almost done~

This is created as a tool for my research – will be used, folded, shown and carried around.

It is huge and at the time wrinkled – will fix all that once it is done~

I have included all facts I can to each person~

As you can see on the photo’s above: I have added: Birth, death, marriage, title, burial, children, census, military, occupation, all census I can find, Find A Grave, photos if any, obits if any, important facts abt each person, and then I came back in as you can see and color coordinated it all~ I’ve also included the Country of Origin if known and added all the states they were in and age of death along with cause of death if known – I am also in the process of adding all the tombstone photo’s to each person if I have them~ Once I am done with all of this I will be adding my photo’s of me in the center and facts abt me and such… then I believe I will be done~

The ALLEN DNA Patrilineage 2 Project


ALL ALLEN Descendants (ALL branches of Allen’s) John Robb has updated our DNA project with him – Look for: Ralph1 of Sandwich and Coni’s haplotype.

I had sent him my research on Allen’s (past couple of yrs) and now that he has had time to go thru it – he has a new write up on my DNA (Uncle Russ Allen) part of this project! Our DNA (both) are being proven…. Rare & Ancient!

1. My haplotype is: I1a1b 

2. Uncle Russ: is now R-ZZ10_1 

(His has been changed MANY TIMES) 

3. Aunt Bonnie (Veronica line) is: H

It seems to be I’ve picked up a lot of my Dad’s DNA (matching same projects as Uncle Russ) 

I personally am matching several tribes also – Mainly Lumbee, Wacamaw, Pique-Shanee, Tuscarora  (NY branch) & Hatteras tribes – Also Cumberland Gap tribes mainly believe Mother’s sides for Gap area.

​”Ever Widening Circle” – Version 3 Fan Chart


Have added: birth, death, marriage, military, all census, occupation, age of death/cause of death, burial, #FindAGrave # & Nationality. (All done color coordinated) Found a couple errors – able to fix easily! Happy with this version! Will add all my notes to this one I believe. (will be notes of interest & such)


My office is finally done!


For 2 years now I have been working on my office – finally done with it! Getting ready to go back to full time researching! 

Bought several pieces at local pawnshop – found a used baby changer for $30.00 and converted into table for my printer station for books/paperwork/scanning/printing. 

I AM SO HAPPY with final product! Now to get back to researching! Will be so much easier with setup! 

Total cost abt $1500.00 + 2 yrs in making & getting most on sale or used pieces picked up here & there~
