Update. I had the BigY test as of 4/27, and my haplotype is R-BY15581. This is underneath Z39300. Some people consider Z39300 part of ZZ37.

I am part of the l2a Haplo group. So, what does that exactly mean? Where is my family origin? How can I get these answers? Thanks for all your replies.

Pedigree of Roger R. Marcellus ( I haven’t completed a test through the project, but I have done one on my father through and it has confirmed that his lineage does indeed come from Western Europe.

I have little confidence in the earliest parts of my pedigree but what I have found is as follows:

Jan van Marselis – b. 1552 (Hamburg, Germany), d. Unknown

Gabriël van Marselis – b. 1582 (Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Germany), d. 16 July 1643 (Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Germany)

Janse van Bommel Marselis – b. 1629 (Bommel, Holland, the Netherlands), d. 22 May 1722 (Kingston, NY, USA)

Ahasuerus Marselis – b. 1670 (Schenectady, NY, USA), d. 25 Feb 1730 (Schenectady, NY, USA)

Gerrit Auser Marselis – b. 22 Sep 1706 (Schenectady, NY, USA), d. Unknown

Johann L. (John) Marselis – b. 14 Sep 1741 (Tryon County, NY, USA), d. 12-16 Oct 1801

Thomas Marselis – b. 9 Aug 1784 (Quebec Province), d. 23 July 1861 (Williamsburg Township, Ontario, Canada)

Thomas H. Marcellus (Marselis) (This is the oldest member of my family I have a large degree of confidence in being a match to my family tree as I have found several historical documents that attest to the connection) – b. 1821 (Canada East), d. 1897 (location unknown, likely Minnesota as the last record I have found is from the Minnesota State Census of 1885)

Thomas Monroe Marcellus (original record in the 1861 Census of Canada had it spelled Marciela, which is my best guess as to when our family changed to the Latinized spelling of Marselis) – b. 16 Sep 1851 (Ontario, Canada), d. 6 May 1907 (Charlottesville, VA, USA)

Webb Lee Marcellus – b. 20 Mar 1894 (Sleepy Eye, MN, USA), d. 25 Sep 1963 (Pittsburgh, PA, USA)

Roger M. Marcellus – b. 3 Mar 1928 (Wheeling, WV, USA), d. 25 Aug 1995 (Fr. Lauderdale, FL, USA)

Roger H. Marcellus – Living

Roger R. Marcellus – Living

Lainey - many thanks, I've emailed you directly.

I notice that the admin has now grouped my kit into "lineage I" - does anyone know any more about that?

My name is Jennifer Mattocks Walker. Family Tree DNA kit #628942 and GEDmatch #T133438. My Melton tree goes William Emerson, James Dixon, Ozias, James Harrison, Absalom then I hit a wall pretty much. Is anyone a match with me? I'm new to all of this. My grandfather William Emerson Melton met my grandmother Barbara Jean Stephens during WWII and had a fling which produced my mother Donna Kay Stephens. They were never married and Barbara's parents adopted my mother Donna as their own. Am really trying to get in touch with my Melton side. William passed away in 2001 and he had two sons, one is deceased and the other won't answer me. Please help if possible. Thank you!

I am searching for Virginia Clarks that share a connection to John James Clark born in Orange Co VA in 1810 to James Clark and Sarah (Sally) Payne.  We are not in the line with George Rogers Clark or William Clark (Lewis and Clark), at least so far as I am able to prove. However, it would not be surprising to learn of some cousin connection as the two families seemed to have traveled similar paths at similar times - Caroline Co VA to Orange Co Va to Mercer/Shelby/Jessamine Co Ky in the late 1700's/early 1800's.  I had DNA testing done - that's the good news, the bad news is it was done through a lab not linked to FTDNA.  I am hoping that by posting the results here I might get it in front of the right people.  My FTDNA placed me in the R-M269 (no surprise there) the LivingDNA results placed me in subgroup R-Z30.  Does that line up with anyone here?
If I were guessing further back than the James Clark (Sally Payne) mentioned above, I am trying to track a family of Clarks that came to Orange from Caroline Co Va in the late 1700's that included Thomas Clark, Sarah Clark, Patrick Clark (married Eliz. Spalding), James Clark, John Clark, William Clark, and Reuben Clark.  There is much circumstantial evidence that points to this family.  Unfortunately Caroline Co is one of the 'burned records' counties and official documentation has been impossible so far.
