Not sure if this will be of help, but he does cite a lot of work that can't be readily found online.

After having the FTDNA-Y67 Test Done I have an exact match 0 generations with an Eric Burke Mills in  California. I also have a very close match with Charles Foran Warner within 3 generations. Not sure what all this means. Documentation found from my cousin Frances Covington's research in the 1980's suggested that Augustus Ruben Warner's father and mother were not married. At this point I'm not sure which side of the family was Warner and which side was possibly a Mills. Erick had the Y-111 test and the MTDNA , I since have upgraded to the Y-111 and the SNP upgrade also. Erick's Mills ancestors were Quakers in the same area as some Warner families as far back as the mid to late 1700's and early 1800's in North Carolina. My family remained for the most part and his family traces through Tennessee. Any way I can tell how many Cm and segments we are related? Have tried everything to figure it out but to no avail. I now wonder if our common ancestor is not possibly a male Warner and female Mills even though he can trace his lineage back to John Mills born about 1660 in England, while I cannot seem to get past A.R.Warner born 1808...North Carolina with his father noted in the 1880 census as being born in Connecticut.

Awhile back, I also became a Co-Administrator of the "Norman" Project.  It's official name is England GB Groups eij (Norman), but I just call it the "Norman" Project.  This is a history project instead of a surname, Haplogroup or geographic project.  It focuses on the men who were with William the Conqueror when he invaded England in 1066 and the "eij" part of the official title signifies that they think most of these men were in yDNA Haplogroups E, I and J.  The word Norman is itself a contraction of Norse Man and they were Norwegian and Danish Vikings who had settled (conquered) the Normandy area of France.

I know.  So, what is a descendant of the Yamnaya horse riders from the Pontic Steppe doing with Vikings?  Well, believe it or not, I'm their technical adviser with regard to SNPs and SNP testing.

In any case, one of my fellow Co-Administrators linked Members to this wonderful set of European "tribal" (really Haplographic) maps and I wanted to share the link with you.

I love the starting picture, which shows the Earth, probably as seen from the International Space Station, but seemingly out the window of an old cottage.  Then, they have maps from about 9,000, 4,000, 1,000 and 800 years ago, showing how the various Haplogroups have spread throughout Europe during that period of time and then have become mixed.  The maps are a little light for my taste, but you can enhance their boldness by clicking on them.  Once you do that, you can also zoom in on any area you choose.

My name is James Walter Moon. I live in Guntersville, Alabama where I was born. My Father was Earl Simpson Moon, Grandfather was Francis Butler Moon, Greatgrandfather was Jonas Posey Moon. I am led to believe that somehow my family came from Bucks Co. PA and from there to Sevier Co. TN. I know they moved from Sevier Co. Tn., with at least three other families to this area of North Alabama in the 1800s. The rest is sketchy. Can you help?

CORRECTION: my Grandfather was William Walter Moon, Greatgrandfather was Francis Butler Moon, his father was Jonas Posey Moon.

I am searching for a living male descendant from Jacob Franks b. 1687 or Moses Franks b 1717. Jacob's sons are believed to include Naphtali b c1715, David b. 1720, and Moses b c1723. Jacob Franks is believed to be the brother of Moses Franks b. 1717, whose grandson may be David Salisbury Franks b.1743
I would like to discern whether this Franks family of New York and Philadelphia is related to the Michael Franks (b. c1725 in Germany and d 1793 in German Township PA) by using a Y-DNA test. Descendants of Michael Franks (1725-1793) have already been tested, so the test results of a direct male descendant from the Jacob (b 1687) or Moses (b 1717) would either match that Y-DNA or not, telling us whether these Franks family are related. If you have the name of a living male descendant, please contact me. There will be no cost for the Y-DNA test.

I have recently joined my DNA profile and that of my brother to the Craven Project and sent a  patriarch lineage to Cory Craven at the email address sprinkled around the project pages. No reply and my email server announced a problem in getting a message to him.
Does anyone know what's going on?
