My mothers dna side was J2a1a1b.  According to her her grandparents from the mothers side were from Holland.  I believe the last name was either Schultz or DeJung, but getting straight answers is like pulling teeth. 

Reading up on the origins of the J2 line, they came from Clan Jasmine which originated in the Arabic Peninsula.  while J2 is very rare. However, J2 is found amongst 9% of the Kalash minority of north-west Pakistan.[7]   Where west meets east: the complex mtDNA landscape of the southwest and Central Asian corridor, American Journal of Human Genetics, vol. 74 (2004), pp. 827–845.

What my take away is this: This particular line we belong to originated in Arabia.. while many stuck around in that area & are found there today, many of this particular mutation also moved throughout all of Europe in smaller quantities. 

Anyone else find info on this? All I'm seeing is the European side, it'd be interesting to see another racial origins that can shed light on this.

Kit #585088 predicted haplogroup R-M269

New member, and completely new to the DNA side of things.

I have found some information from the Marcks branch of family through, but can't get ahold of person to verify thier findings. If it holds any truth it would be for a George Hardy b. abt. 1780-1800.

I also seem to continue to stumble along and always tend to go to Virginia Hardy's, but agian no proof. As most of us know it get rather convoluted around that time.

The following info is backed by my family records passed along.

John Hardy b. 1823 Illinois (family records) New York by census m. Margaret (?Miller) d. unknown
•Rufus Aaron Hardy b. 1847 Illinois, m. Ernestine (Marcks), d. 9/19/1918 burinal Hot Springs, Fall River County, SD
  •William Rufus Hardy b. 3/23/1892 Lawrence SD m. Pearl d. 6/9/1973 Beaverton Oregon.
      •Thomas Edwin Hardy (living) b. 1922 Lead, SD, m. Doris Ann (Rohar)
          •Kevin A. Hardy, (living) b. 1958 Portland, OR m. Mary Ann (Pattee)

I don't understand why all these Surname Groups here and on ftdna don't encourage everyone to join the Surname Groups of each of their bloodlines. I mean take me for instance I have mtfull dna & FF & I'm on Ancestry & Gedmatch. I manage 12 people, family and extended family with testing of Y's, BigY's, mt's, FF, ethnicity. We are in bloodline Circles on Ancestry. If some of us were in the bloodline Groups of our other than Y, bloodline  then maybe we might be willing to pay for upgrades of some of our other bloodlines. I mean if a person has a surname in his tree of a direct line then they should be in that group. I'm trying to get Y DNA for all bloodlines from my granddaughter point in the tree, if I can't find a male then I would be willing to upgrade a person that might already be listed with DNA, if we made a connection in our trees. The problem is most of these people don't even bother to upload a tree or list a ancestor or return an email. So you can only hope for a project manger, that they might answer.

I am Tom Wilcox. My great-grandfather was William Wilcox who was born on 1 Oct 1836. He left England on the ship QUICKSTEP and arrived in New York City on 24 Dec 1855. By 1857 he married Jane Dowdrick and resided in West Covington, Kenton County, Kentucky. He was an Iron Worker. I am trying to find his parents and possible siblings. all I know is that his father was James Wilcox and his mother was Eliza (Elizabeth) Wilcox. He was a Catholic. I am havig a difficult time trying to find William's descendants in England. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

My birth mother's surname was DUMOND, and I am hoping that I would be able to find out some things. I was adopted in 1955 through a private adoption arranged through a family physician. Because of this, there are very few records, and none of which provides more information.   I have no information regarding my family's medical history, genealogy or heritage.  I am hoping to connect with any relatives I may have to, if nothing else, at least get some medical history so that my doctors can stop "shooting in the dark" to find out anything going on with me physically.

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

Results are in to the FTDNA-Y111. I have an exact match, distance 1 with an Eric Burke Mills in  California. I also have a very close match with Charles Foran Warner within 3 distance. 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. Is there anyway with the YDNA test to tell how many centimorgans a match has?
