I'm not sure exactly how to go about proving I am descendant from Jonas Holt (Hold) except the family tree I have gathered info on.

I am descended from John Thomson (c.1811-1861) a cotton weaver from Aberdeen. I have tracked many of the descendants. (I live in Australia) My group moved to Sydney just before WW1. I am interested in anyone who may be connected. I am not able to substantiate John's parents. I am new to DNA testing but will persue that in the New Year.

I know this is an old thread but I have to start someplace and I do not have enough technical knowlege about dna.  I have DYS 393 = 10 and my haplotype is R-M269.  I am having the Backbone test run.

My problem is that the only match I have at FTDNA is a person who is haplotype R- P25 and we have a 67 marker distance of 2 which means we are closely related.  The trouble is his last name is Howard and my Last name is Christopher.  In the Howard Project he matches no one and in the Christopher I match no one. 

In both projects the first thing that jumps out at me is we both have a 393 of 10 and no one else in either project does. I am in contact with my match and he has been hunting for years trying to figure this out.

At Ysearch the only person I match is him and my cousin who had a 37 marker test done.  My oldest known ancestor on the Christopher side was born in 1822 in SC.  He just seems to have appeared out of thin air. The Howard's oldest known ancestor was born in 1775 about 265 miles north in KY.  We can trace that line back to the dark ages.

Is there someplace one can seaarch for men who have a 393 of 10?

Thank you for reading this and any advice you can give.

This subject is for the discussion of DNA results of Daws Barr kit #255188 and David Barr kit #411126.  These two lines match 34 out of 37 markers.

[Not even sure that I am in the right area, but here goes.  Recently had YDNA  done and showed R1B1A2 plus R-M269 Marker YNDA37 showed 1 match but unable to source it.   This is a complete mystery to me. Can anyone help and point me in the right direction.    Am trying to find out where my father (Frederick Newman) may have originated from, hence having my brother do the test for me.  Greatly appreciate any assistance

A Member recently asked me if I knew of any books that would provide a good introduction or background in genetic genealogy.  And it just so happens that William "Bill" Wood, a Member of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG), recently provided two such suggestions in an online project blog post.

Trace Your Roots with DNA:  Using Genetic Tests to Explore Your Family Tree by Megan Smolenyak and Ann Turner

DNA and Social Networking:  A Guide to Genealogy in the Twenty-First Century by Debbie Kennett and Chris Pomery

Both of these books can be found on  If any of you know of others, please feel free to post them here or send the information to me and I will post it for you.

I have been thinking about other Forum threads that might be useful for Project Members and if any of you have any suggestions in that regard, please send them to me.  But one idea I had was to have a thread where anyone could post general information they have learned about genetic genealogy or I could use in response to questions Members ask me if these deal with general information that might be of interest to other Members.  In most cases, specific operational questions or problems would not fall under this category unless they are systemic.

I am new here, ordering a ydna test for my surname but have a mystery side to my family tree. The Malone's. Here is what i know.
Philip Malone (b) 1792 married Anne McMahon (b)1805
5  children
Joseph, Edward,Patrick, Philip, Barney

Once on the 1851 Canada census this family is easily tracked.
As I await the kit for my family name i wondered if anyone knows any of my moms side the Malone's?
Family lore puts them Catholics in the North but no travel or family information seems to exist for them from Ireland.

Any tips or hints would be appreciated.

Another SNP Pack has been released for the Kits in Haplogroup I, the 44th in total so far by Family Tree DNA.  At the customary introductory price of $99.00, you can order I-CTS6868 if that is pertinent to you.  As stated previously, check with one of the Project Administrators in Haplogroup I about whether this test would be useful for you.
