During the crusades a daughter in the holy land had a son with a local man.  When the family returned to England or Europe the lord de la Feld might have offered the fertile crescent man wealth if he would take and use his name---de la Feld.

The same  could have happened in Ireland or England and the outsider took the Feld, Felde, Field, de la Feld name for land and money.  It happened quite often.

A wife might have met with another man and conceived a child by him without telling the husband.

An adoption of a male child would probably bring another Y type into the family.

Some us are related through a Field woman others a Field man.

Hi everybody,

The Collins project Y results are now on FTDNA. To make life easier for me so I don't have to maintain three websites, I am shifting the content of the home page, information, etc, to FTDNA. 

You can find our FTDNA website here:

I will keep updating patriarchs and pedigrees here if you wish.

The map will eventually be put on our expanded site on Rootsweb (hoping I can get it to work).

We have a puzzle in our Willis family line that we are trying to solve.  A James Phillips married a Sarah Packard in NC in the late 1700s.   Sarah was a widow and had one son, William Willis,  by a previous marriage to Jacob Willis .   James, Sarah, and William packed up their wagons and moved from NC to Kentucky.  The Phillips family later expanded from Kentucky into Missouri, then to Kansas.   If any of these family members do a DNA test and match with Packard descendants,  they may not understand why this match is happening.  I can fill in the puzzle,  and solve one for the Willis family as well.

If you are a Phillips descendant from Ky,  and match any descendant of a Packard ... please email me at

Thank you

Hi everyone,

We are already in June 2015 and there is no development. This week, I will order the Family Finder test for my dad.  According to FT DNA advertising, it is good to 3-5 generations back.
My dad is part of the 5th generation donwstream James.
Time is ticking.
My dad is in his mid 80s.

The results will be meaningless if no other Richmond I-M253 is tested with Family Finder. I am asking living descendants to consider it. Especially the elders.

It is about time this 200years lost relative to be linked to his family.

If there are any other members of this forum whose line should trace back to David Thacker, b abt 1790-1795, Louisa Co, VA, supposedly to Mary Branham & Unknown, or to one of his sons, please consider contacting me directly at Karl.Thacker (the at thing), or in this post.  Same goes if you should tie to his (apparent) bother, Robert Thacker.

Thank you

Several months ago, I had posted a question about my family's paternal lineage being R-L23. We're negative for L51. We were about to do further testing as suggested by a group moderator—however with the new FTDNA haplotree structure, it seems we are terminal R-L23 with no further snp testing available.

Could anyone tell me if there are any further steps we can—or should—take for testing to learn more about our heritage? Through other research we've found some interesting last names from the 1700s, which may indicate other ethnicities.

As posted before, here are our 37 STRs results:

DYS393: 12
DYS390: 24
DYS19: 14
DYS391: 11
DYS385: 11-14
DYS426: 12
DYS388: 12
DYS439: 11
DYS3891: 13
DYS392: 13
DYS389II: 29
DYS458: 14
DYS459: 9-10
DYS455: 11
DYS454: 11
DYS447: 26
DYS437: 15
DYS448: 19
DYS449: 29
DYS464: 14-15-16-17
DYS460: 11
Y-GATA-H4: 10
YCAII: 19-23
DYS456: 15
DYS607: 15
DYS576: 18
DYS570: 17
CDY: 37-37
DYS442: 12

Thank you!
