Family Tree DNA has released a 69th SNP Pack at the introductory price of $99.00.  It's in yDNA Haplogroup E:


It does not appear to be of any use to any of our present Members.  It is too far beyond the present estimated SNP for our Lineage I Members and the other Members of yDNA Haplogroup E are on a different sub-branch.

I've been on Ancestry a while, and have a wikitree, and was happy I could do the DNA test.
Now I see information here and on myFTDNA that is great, but ... nothing seems to link anything together.
On myFTDNA where I look for my most distant ancestor, sure enough, there's a Schroeder in Germany.
Which one? According to Ancestry, my most distant ancestor is Claus, no dates, father of Hans born in 1698. Apparently no DNA path has been made anywhere  to either of these, I can accept that.
So I look here on y-results, and I see a    159177   Johann Schroeder, b. about 1705, died before 1759 fellow. Not in my direct lineage based on my gedcom.
So I'm left wondering what pedigree you all are going to accept from me when the only information I can get from myFTDNA is a name and country. I clicked on the family tree over there and it was bare. I could not find a place to actually see anyone listed from my ancestry, only people who match my DNA.
I see my 4th great grandfather's wife's maiden name, Jancke or perhaps on myFTDNA is says, Janke, I can't remember, but where does one go to visually find Johann Samuel Schroeder's wife, Marie Elisabeth Dorothea Jancke over there? Where would I find Johann Samuel Schroeder for that matter?
I realize that this is all very in depth and all, but it seems to me, with my basic understanding of databases and data, et al, that if the site knows of the name Janke/Jancke, then the information ought to be handily available.
Same for here.
I'm just wanting to find out where to get the actual most distant ancestor on my father's side, other than our last name, Schroeder, and origin, Germany, which I didn't need a DNA test or a membership here to find out.
Anybody got any pointers? Also, I see this forum doesn't exactly set the woods on fire, maybe the information I"m asking for, if readily available, would create more traffic here...
Anyway, thanks for all this, I'm overwhelmed and eager to find out more.
Like how myFTDNA knows my most distant ancestor on Mom's side was a Wemyss from Scotland, yet my Origins map doesn't cover there. My grandmother was Irish, yet Ireland doesn't show there either. Transients, not true born Scots or Irish? This is all, like I say, overwhelming. So many more questions than before.
Pretty cool, though, if you think about it.
Thanks again.
Bill Schroeder, Legitimate King of all Scots in my own mind.

Family Tree DNA has added six new SNP Packs for a total of 68 now available for order.  As is the standard practice, these newest SNP Packs can be purchased for a limited time for $99.00 before they probably increase in price to the typical $119.00 for most SNP Packs.  The six new ones are:


Members of our yDNA hg E Lineage I might be able to use the E-L19 SNP Pack, but they would first have to either discover that this was their sub-branch through emulation (examining the STR pattern of other kits in their gateway haplogroup project) or single SNP testing to E-L19.  I1-Z2535 is an advanced SNP Pack that was designed to be used by Kits that had first purchased the I1-Z58 SNP Pack and knew that the I1-Z2535 sub-branch was the one to test.  J2-L363 is also an advanced SNP Pack and our J2 Members would be better served ordering the J2-M172 SNP Pack first to see if this newest J2 SNP Pack is even applicable to them.  The three newest R1b SNP Packs are all intended to be appropriate follow-ups for the R1b-M343 Backbone SNP Pack.

In answer to your request:  "Currently on the y-Results page as "No Haplogroup Assigned -Not Yet Assigned to a Lineage". Please correct my earliest known ancestor to the one above, as the one originally given turns out not be the direct male line. Thanks!"
In order to change the Earliest Known Ancestor as it appears on the project's Results Page, you must change the information submitted on your myFTDNA page. Here's how:   

    Log in at using your kit number and the password they sent you when you returned your kit.
    Click on “Manage Personal Information” under “Profile” in the left column
    Click on "Genealogy" in the tabs near the top of the page.
    Click on "Most Distant Ancestors".
    Fill in the information in the blanks for Paternal Ancestor.  (Be sure to include first and last name of your paternal line ancestor, along with identifying time and location information)
    Click “Save”

The pedigree above cannot be added to the Patriarch Page because it does not have a kit number that verifies it is for a member of the project.

I would like to correspond with kit 458721 with the ancestor of Jacob Baer b. 1724 d. 1789

His kit and kit 391337' possibly have the same 4th Great Grandfather!

Please reply in this forum or contact me at mbare (at) barefamily (dot) org.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Has anyone considered the wrecked ships of the "Spanish Armada" just off the coast of Western Ireland's Galway?  (Galway Bay?)  We were told when we visited Galway that there was, or had been a settlement of Irish near Galway, who were of Irish-Spanish descent.  There were names in Irish history such as "deValero".   Were'nt these folks referred to as, "Iberian"?   History forever adds other dimensions to our genealogy.
To put it another way...  Genealogy will forever be adding other dimensions to our history.  "Happy Ancestoring!"    Madeline (Gene's sister & family co-researcher).

It appears someone was trying to access my account today.  I received four emails in a row about 4 o'clock this afternoon regarding password change.
Anyone else having this?
