My name is Jamie Holt. I have tested 111 markers and am no match to any Holts on here. My grandfather was Harvey Lester Holt. His mother was a Holt, so it is not surprising to me that I don't match any Holts. I would however like to get a male descendant of one of my grandfather's uncles to take the Y dna test. My line goes from David Holt, Sr. b1773 m. Frances Collins-Andrew Jackson Holt b. 1820 m. Millie Lawson-James M. Holt b.1858 m. Delila F. Fry-Millie Holt(my great grandma) was not married and had Harvey Holt(my grandfather). James Holt and wife Delila had sons Sherman, Will, and Joe. I would like to get one of their descendants to take the Y dna test. Are there any extra funds to offset costs of the test??? Thanks!!!

It might be helpful if you posted which Nicholas you are researching.  There may be more than one.  Dates of birth and/or death and spouse's name might help other researchers identify who you are looking for.

Hi, I was wondering if any Nicholas Holt descendants had gotten pass him and found some solid information on his Ancestry . Last I checked a few years ago his Ancestry was still unknown but had a lot of unproven theories.

my father (surname Alford) tested as I-M253 and he only has one other match for Loyd. I have been in contact with the match's sister. She gave me some Virginia info but together we have not been able to make the connection. I believe I know how my father ended up with the Alford name (believe he is an Alford on the maternal line). The story happens several generations ago. Would like to hear what you have learned. Rockingham is interesting. As far as we know, there are no Rockingham connections. Our Loyds go back to Yorktown in the 1600s. I will have to look up the info to remember the names of the parents who left England for Yorktown. Some of the children went to Ohio and on to California.

I got my 23 and me reports back and I am in the Maternal Haplogroup J2a1a1b.  I also had my father do the test.  My mother died in 1997 and she had no sisters. Her mother died in 86 and all of her sisters are now dead too.  That's as far back as I can go really; I know my great-grandmother's name but not her maiden name, she died in the early 80's.  I have some pictures of my great-grandmother.  She's fair complected, blue eyes as I remember even though the photos are black and white.  From what I remember, that side of the family is from northern Europe/Scandinavia.  Maternal lines are so hard to trace with maiden names and so on.  It doesn't help that the line ends with me, I have no daughters, I was an only child, my mom had a brother but no sisters, my grandmother's sisters all had boys!
