yHaplogroup R1b

Haplogroup R1b is the haplogroup of my Father's paternal line (R-U152) and my Mother's paternal line (R-U106) - so I  pay attention to the Haplogroup projects that support us.  Mike W is lead asmin for the Haplogroup R1b - All Subclades.  He recently shared with us a shocking statistic (which I'm sure is already out of date - but it's still illustrative)  He advised on November 19 that there were these quantities of branches on the R1b tree at these key sites:

  • FTDNA - 2,795
  • YFull - 1,091
  • ISOGG - 925

I still remember is the earliest days when there was one branch - "R1b".  We have made a lot of progress in the last 15 years!

So - a couple of thoughts:

1. Check out the yTrees at those sites:

2. Join your Haplogroup Projects

  • Entire branch project.  For me - Haplogroup R1b - All Subclades
  • Specific Branch project(s).  For me, there are several:

    • R-U152 for my Father's paternal line
    • R-U106 for my Mother''s paternal line
    • R-L196 for my Lineage defining SNP 

If your haplogroup is different, use these ideas to track down your own Haplogroup connections.

3. If your project has a Results Page at WorldFamilies - you may now have an idea why there are always some kits where we list "Not Found" in the ISOGG column.


Big Y info

I'm waiting for results of the Big Y from FTDNA and I'm wondering if anybody here does anything with that info. Thanks to earlier SNP testing I'm down to here on the tree:

I am totally lost -

I have had mtDNA testing through FTDNA. I am trying to join the Dykes project but I can't seem to find a way into the Dykes group. What am I doing wrong?

In my intuition I believe my family can help. in the late 1990's a man came to speak with my GrandMother about this very subject. How should we proceed is an interesting?

Be Well,

You have my dna markers in your data base, how can I access the data base? I do not have a test kit no.

Richard Church of Plymouth 1608-1668

I am a direct descendant of Richard Church of Plymouth. I suspect his origin to be Stanford on the Vale, Berkshire, England, christened Richard Church on 24 Sep 1608, son of Richard Church (1570-1623?) and Agnes Hopkins (m.27 Oct 1607), grandson of John (Jhon) and Anne (Ane) m. 12 Nov 1564. All events recorded in the Stanford in the Vale parish records. Those records also cite a Richard Webbe christened on 15 July 1570. A Richard Webb is listed as a co-passenger of Richard of Plymouth in the 1630 Winthrop Fleet and a 1631 letter from Gov. Branford to Gov. Winthrop cites Richard Church as "one of Mr.Webb's men". I am seeking to find an English descendant of the suspected father, grandfather or sibling John (c.28 Nov 1610) for DNA testing.
