His name is Melvin Jackman. He was born around 1889 (give or take). He was married to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wall in 1916 and died in 1918 (one month before my grandmother was  born. He was married and died in Sevier County Arkansas.

His daughters name was Melvelean Virginia Jackman, born in DeQuien Sevier Arkansas. I have a copy of the marriage certificate and death info but nothing else.

There is a possibility that he was from Nebraska and his father was Syrus/Cyrus and mom Roxena. I have exhausted all possibilities and even contacted the clerks office in Sevier county and they didn't have much. I want to complete this line and see how far back I can go with his lineage. I have a lot on Melvelean's side but not on his. Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated and I will do what I can to return the favor.

I ordered the Y DNA-37 test kit on the 5th of Feb. I hope to receive it this week coming, as I will have my only brother provide the DNA.

All I know is that John Byrne is my great grandfather and his father was Peter. According to the marriage license of my great grandparents, Peter was deceased at the time of his marriage to Catherine Dunn(e). Her father is listed as Owen Dunn(e) and was listed as living. We don't know if there is a 'e' at the end of Dunn, but it written with one on the marriage certificate. So, I have to assume there is an 'e', even though some family members say there is none.

I have my grandfather's birth cert as well as a few of his siblings. I was told their father, John, was to have worked on the railroads, building them. I have not found anything that gives any fact to this as of yet.

So, I am stuck at Peter Byrne. My father told me when I was young, our surname was O'Byrne... my mother said that when my grandfather moved to NYC with two older brothers, two years after their mother died, the schools added the 's' to his name. I have found so far, this is not correct, however, my father's birth cert shows it with an 's'... so I am more inclined to believe that is how I became a BYRNES vs BYRNE. I remember when I would write my grandfather a letter, I asked my father why grandpa didn't have an 's' on his name and that is when he told me that we use to be O'Byrne. My father, esp my grandfather ... were very proud Irishmen! My brother takes after them!

Both of my grandfather's brothers that move to NYC with him both spelled it BYRNE. I have made a connection with a granddaughter (Nancy) of Eugene and a grandson (Ron) of Peter. We all live in Virginia (USA)... funny, how our roots started in Ireland, landed in NYC and the great grandchildren of John Byrne reconnected in Virginia! Small world afterall! ;)

Oh, according to my great grandparents marriage certificate, Catherine lived in Castlebellingham and John lived in Milestown. I hope this DNA Project will connect us to other family members!

Thank you for having me. I will get my brother to sign up as well.

David Pipes of Rochester, Kent England has written a book about the history and origins of the Surnames Pipe and Pipes in England. (Piper is also included).
The complete title to search for on Amazon is "Origins of the surname Pipes - Pipes and early Pipe References".

The FTDNA Groups team has been at Rootstech in Salt Lake City this week and had a display that gave coupon codes for testing.  These will apparently be good until 14 February.

Use RT30 to get $30.00 off Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, Y-DNA111 and mt Full Sequence tests.  I am not sure if this will reduce the price of these tests in addition to our $20.00 off Project reduction or not.  If it doesn't, the reduced price of these tests will be $139.00, $238.00, $329.00, and $169.00, respectively.

If you are interested in the atDNA Family Finder test, use RT89 to get $10.00 off the cost, dropping it to $89.00.

I am not sure if the coupon above applies to Y-DNA STR upgrades, but CGS30 is supposed to give you $30.00 off if you purchase any combination of tests costing $100.00 or more, including upgrades.  I am not sure when it expires.

If you are interested in any these, you can back out of the order if you do see the price reduction reflected in the cost while you are placing it.

I am a newcomer to this forum and  to DNA testing. I got the result of Gene 2.0 testing which is R-Z269. I found very little information on this group. Just a few mentions as being "equivalent to" SRY2627 or a "subgroup" of it.

Can you tell me a bit more about the relation between Z269 and SRY2627 ?
Is there any information about distribution of Z269 ?

My 3rd Great Grandmother was Sara Ann Bird born 1822 in Pennsylvania. According to Census records, her parents were also born in Pennsylvania. We have been unsuccessful in finding any information on who her parents or siblings may have been. Sara married William Bennett about 1839 and lived in Pike Township, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. Sara and William had 6 children. Her youngest son's middle name was Burd, and her daughter's son's middle name was Berd. Sara died in 1879. If anyone would have any clue of her genealogy I would love to hear about it. I have information on her descendants I can share.

A sibling took the Big Y test at FTDNA and BY575 was the terminal SNP, based on his results I tested for the individual SNP and of course it was positive.

FTDNA is not suggesting any futher individual SNP tests so I'm wondering if that is about as deep as it can go for now?
