My name's Richard Guillaume. I 'm French from North East France and Lorraine.
An autosomal match at FTDNA gave me a match with a Swedish man, Mr. Bengt Eklund.
It turns out that one of Mr. Eklund's ancestor was Mr. Tossaint Guillaume, born near Liege in Today's Belgium around 1586.
I have no paper record of Mr. Tossaint Guillaume because my paper trail stops in a small church in Lorraine circa 1736.
However my paternal family lore claims that our paternal ancestor came from the Netherlands and the south part of the Netherlands near Liege became part of Belgium in the 1600s. It is therefore very possible that Tossaint Guillaume was a relative of my paternal ancestor, perhaps even my own Paternal ancestor.
Anyways, the story continues like this. Mr Tossaint Guillaume moved to Sweden around 1620, with his wife and several of his children. He is recorded in Uppsala in Sweden in 1623 as a metal worker as many other 'Brabanters', even if Tossaint Guillaume was recorded as a Walloon.  Once in Sweden, Tossaint changed his name to Gilljam.
It is therefore likely that any man whose ancestry goes back to the Gilljams of Sweden circa 1620 goes further back in time to Guillaume (or equivalent like Gilhelm/Wilhelm ) in Belgium and Netherlands prior to 1600.
In addition, assuming that Tossaint Guillaume/Gilljam is paternally related to me, then he must be of the same Y Haplogroup as mine : R1b-M269-DF27-CTS4065-BY12176.

I encourage the R-M269 men from this name-group who think that their ancestry are the Netherlands or Sweden post-1620,  to get a SNP pack test. The R-M343 pack at FTDNA seems safe to do as it is not very deep. If you have good reason to think that we are related (for example our respective STR patterns match) then you can try the Z209 pack which includes the CTS4065 SNP and perhaps soon the BY12176 SNP.

Hi Aaron welcome to the group, have you done the DNA test yet? I tested at Family Tree DNA my most dissents Patrick ancestor John Patric born 1429 in Scotland. My first ancestor to come the America is Robert Patrick born in 1705 he came to America in 1725 Robert Patrick came to Philadelphia PA on Aug. 25, 1725 at the age of 21. He came as a bound servant on the ship Amity from the Bideford, England. He was Indentured Servant to James Gerard. He owned property in 1741 in Salisbury Township, Lancaster County PA. and Yellow Britches Creek, PA. Between 1754-1758 he was Constable of Sugar Loaf Hundred. His son James was one of the Colonel Washington's soldiers at Braddock's Defeat defeat. Most of Robert Patrick's children served with Washington in the Revolutionary War.
My Family Tree DNA kit 465047 check it out on the Patrick DNA project page.

Thanks Jeff,  I joined the U106 project.  I appreciate your fast response and help on Harps and Thompson.

  I've been trying to get an email to Donald Uhl,  the admin for the Uhl surname project, and I keep getting errors back.  I was trying to get suggestions on joining our German Sufficool kits to the -Uhl project.   Appreciate thoughts on that.

Family Tree DNA has released three more SNP Packs and updated a fourth one.  This brings the total number of SNP Packs now available to 74 and the new ones are currently priced at the introductory rate of $99.00 for now.  The new ones are:


The updated one is now called:  R1b-L21v2

The first one of the new SNP Packs, is for one of the sub-branches (or sub-sub-branches in some Haplotrees) of R-DF13, which has an incredible number of sub-branches.  I do not know of anyone in our Project who could use this, but there might well be someone.  The other two new ones are extensions of the recently released R1b-DF21 SNP Pack.  Again, as far as I know, no one in the Project could use the first of those, R1b-S3058.  The other one, R1b-S5488, is my own Lineage's parental branch for our Z16294.  We cannot use it, but there may be other Kits in our Project who could belong to sister sub-branches to our Z16294.  It is highly unlikely, other than the Cousins in my own Lineage IV, that any of you belong to Z16294 because we have a Signature Marker that must be one of the best in the world with an allele value of 11 for DYS492.  The late Leo William Little discovered that this value is shared by only about 1% of all R1b men.

Does anyone happen to know if FamilyTreeDNA typically runs sales for Black Friday/Christmas, or other holidays?  I've been wanting to get the Y-111, but it would be nice to save a few dollars.
