On FTDNA the Y matches show up with names.  In the project the matches show up as numbers  Is there a way to match the information?

Just an invitation to anyone who is R-M269 (R1b1a2) predicted or R1b of any type to join the R1b project:
A comparison service is also included with the R1b project.
Everyone’s STRs and SNPs included to see who they have good STR signature matches or GD matches with and see what SNP testing has already been done, facilitate and encourage good SNP testing decisions.

The R1b-L2 SNP Pack is now being offered by FTDNA at an introductory price of $99.00.  It becomes the 47th SNP Pack now available to purchase.

The R-L2 SNP created one of the extended branches leading off from the branch caused by the R-U152 mutation, which itself is one of the outward branches of R-P312, one of the two major subdivisions leading out from R1b1a1a2 (R-M269).

We do have one Member of the Project whose Kit has tested out to R-U152, but unfortunately may not know which branch beyond that it belongs to.  If this Member is part of a Haplogroup project, the results table there or the expert administrators may be able identify which branch beyond R-U152 this Kit belongs to.  Otherwise, a single SNP test for R-L2, which usually costs $39.00, could yield the answer.

There may well be other Members of the Project who could use this test.  The R1b-M343 Backbone SNP Pack ($99.00) tests for both R-U152 and R-L2 among many other SNPs.  This is the introductory SNP Pack for R1b men and I strongly recommend it to all Members of that Haplogroup unless you plan to take Big Y or FGC's Y Elite 2.1.

The introductory price for the I2-P37 SNP Pack has now expired and the regular price of $119.00 has gone into effect.

Please look at the tree I (M-2) made with sharing a common ancestor with M-43 @ 1500AD.  Also showing a TMRCA at 1050AD with my closest known haplotypes, Mitchell, McCracken and Stabley.

Thanks for responding. I did a further SNP test which brought me to SNP G-M377
I think a lot of our forefathers in the more recent centuries may have changed their name a couple of times to avoid immigration and forced conscription. My great grandfather had the name Preiss which means a person of ouststanding character, but the fact is that it is Nordic in origin.

Preiss Name Meaning
    German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Preis 1.South German: regional name for someone from Prussia, Middle High German Priuss(e). Compare Preuss.Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Preis 2.

My only assumption is based on Haplogroup travels that we started off in Lebanon/Israel then to Sicily, then onward to Italy on to Germany then Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania, and Moldavia, and including the Ukraine and BeyleRussia. Almost like a map of the Jews getting kicked along from one country to the other until the ended up in East side of Europe.

Interesting is that Ted Kendall mentioned a theory he had that Ashkenazic families were actually born of only a few families and that the Sephardim were the mainstay of Europe as far as a Jew population goes. This would account for the numerous genetic issues that affect the Ashkenaz being pretty much inbred at the beginning.

I think there were many, many different first Bergman who were not related unless you'd go back many thousands of years.

As for who was the first of all the different Bergman lines to take up the name, I have no idea.

On my mom's side I have traced a Bergmanis line back to 1675 in Valmiera, Latvia. However, they were not allowed to have surnames until the 1830s so the name was taken up only then by that line (and not even all of the line ended up taking on Bergmann/Bergmanis since the rule there was that each brother could take on a different surname if the father was no longer there, often they would all take the same surname, but often enough not; in our case some eventually became Muller/Miller/Mullers, some Stinberg/Stinbergs/Stomberg/Stombergs/Steinberg/Steinbergs, some Luhs/Luhse/Lusis and some Bergman/Bergmann/Bergmanis and some we are not even sure what surname they eventually took on). The ones who took on Bergmanis all did so about 1834. The one of those who was born the earliest was born in 1756. So I guess you could say the surname itself we can trace as far back as 1756 in Valmiera, Latvia in a certain manner of speaking. It's a non-Ashkenazi line.

We haven't gotten the Y-group tested yet, but we know someone who would have the same Y-haplgroup as the 1675 founder and hope to get it tested.

A 46th SNP Pack has been released, titled R1b-L555, at the customary introductory price of $99.00.

This is a test for SNPs in one of the sub-branches beyond R-Z251, one of the many sub-branches extending outward from R-DF13.  It's possible that some of our Kits could utilize this SNP Pack, but they simply do not know it because they have not tested beyond the FTDNA estimate of R-M269 for them.  There are a vast number of sub-branches of R-DF13 and it would be a tremendous gamble to purchase a test like this in the blind.

On another matter, the $99.00 introductory price is still available for the I2-P37 SNP Pack that a couple of our Project Members could use to identify their further yDNA Haplotree branches.

I'm helping a friend (Jack Ryan, Middletown, NJ) create a family tree, but I'm having no success getting past his grandfather (John Joseph Ryan, 1873 - 1942).

John Joseph Ryan spent much of his life in the Plattsburg, NY area and married Edna Foley).

I find many Ryan's in the Plattsburgh, NY area that I can trace back to Martin Ryan (1838 - 1900, and born in Ireland).

I suspect my friend Jack Ryan through his grandfather John Joseph Ryan may be related to Martin Ryan, but I can find no linkage.

Can anyone help determine whether or not there is a linkage John Joseph Ryan (1873 - 1942) and Martin Ryan (1838 - 1900) who are both from the Plattsburg, NY area?

Hello FUN,

Thanks for joining our haplogroup "N" forum... and for creating a new thread!  As you can see... I am also from the "N" haplogroup, although I am from the "N1" branch of the N tree (which made its way west all the way to north eastern Europe).

I have also found it fascinating that some N Y-DNA continued to spread eastward (toward Korea & Japan)... and I would love to learn more about these "N" branches.

Which country do you live in now?  Or which country do most of your paternal ancestors come from?
