There doesn't seem to be a group over at ftdna for Harrisons, is that correct or incorrect?  My family are Harrisons but we got no matches on dads Y67 (at any level/any distance) nor does dad match any harrisons with Autosomal DNA.  He does have 14 out of 700+ matches, that list Harrison as one of their ancestral names, but these matches are 5th-remote.  Is this to be expected?  I understand it can mean a NPE but could it simply mean nobody, at all, descendant from my dads Harrison line, has tested?

We share Joel Meador. Here is my linkage to him: My Grandmother on Mom’s (Lucille Henbest) side was JOANNA MEADOR. She was born on 3 December 1867 in Barry County Missouri and died on 6 April 1949 in Fayetteville Arkansas. Joanna’s husband was Alfred HENBEST. Joanna’s father was George Henry Meador (b 1 September 1838, d 8 Feb 1904 - Lucy Ann Booth.

Here is the data I have on Joanna’s Meador lineage.:
George Henry Meador (b 1 September 1838, d 8 Feb 1904 - Lucy Ann Booth
Nathaniel Meador (b 19 September 1818, d 28 May 1862) - Sarah Turner and
   Katherine Perdue
Eli Meador (b 1787, d 1846) - Sarah (Sarah) Turner
Isham Meador (b 20 March 1762, d 2 March 1849) - Biddy Bradshaw and Martha Craighead.
Joel Meador (b 1728, d 1789) - Frances, Agnes, and Susannah Clark.
Jonas Meador ( b 1700) - Frances
John Meader
Thomas Meader, Jr.
Thomas Meader, Sr.

I can be reached at     What is your E-mail address?     

I’ll gladly share all my Meador, Henbest, and Pearce data.

I believe you are understanding correctly. There are a number of possible reasons why the different haplotypes are listed. First, there may be adoptions or what I'll call unusual parentage events involved. The farther back these may have occurred, the more likely they are to produce many Hanna(h)(y)s with different haplotypes. We will may never know with certainty which genetic line is tied to Sorbie, but it may become clear there is a main line most likely to be connected. Genetic testing of Hannays in Scotland could be very helpful in sorting this out.

I am one of the I2 Hannas, my ancestor is Robert Hanna, who I can document was born in Virginia in 1744, died 1821. A book about him indicates his grandfather came from County Down. He, too, is shown in Hanna of Castle Sorbie, with a tree that appears to go back to Odo Hannay. There are two major R lines in the project, and one is only very, very distantly related to the other. They cannot have had a common ancestor who owned the castle. There are still other single entries in the project who also cannot be closely enough relate to other haplotypes in the project for all to have been related to owners of Sorbie.

The Hanna of Castle Sorbie book is not well documented. I believe it is based in part on Stewart Francis's book on the Hannays, which is more scholarly and refers to documents such as deeds, court cases and estates.  I am in the process of analyzing the records in that  book to see to what extent they support Hanna of Castle Sorbie. I have found many errors and misconstructions in Hanna of Castle Sorbie. To date, I believe that Francis's book does not support one of the main parts of the Hanna of Castle Sorbie tree.

I have written a brief analysis of the DNA evidence to date I'd be happy to provide if  you give me your email address. It is also available on the Facebook page for Clan Hannay.

Hi reader this topic is to share German research portal. The site is free to use, however it is in German, while my German tongue is a bit rusty, with the help of Google Chrome as your browser with translator can help most researchers.

I placed this here since, my atdna test results-match lead to genealogy records for both Nords-Baltic/Sweds/Danes, Germanic spelling variants of Sheets, Schutt and more. I am sure is of the Sheets various branches-lines migrations, besides the Y-line.
