I check in but no one ever is close to my Diederich line, which is still not in the surname list for 2 years now. The last city listed on the ship was Braunschweig but Leipsig is part of family oral history. Having the most common haplogroup in western Europe is not helpful either. I have birthdates for the 4 who got on the ship  as possible maiden names for 2 generations even but no records before that date in 1885.

Yes I know. I keep an eye on the papers that Dienekes helpfully draws our attention to.

But the date of a mutation is not the same as the date that said mutation arrives in any particular place (other than the one it was born in). mtDNA H could have been born in the Near East at any date you please, but it will not immediately fly to every point on the globe.

So estimates for particular haplogroups are just one factor to bear in mind. We also need to think about evidence for migration,phenqwiki.comand most especially ancient DNA, which is solid proof of arrival. Even then lineages can die out, so that people today of a particular haplogroop could be descended from a later arrival than the one we see in aDNA. All very complex. But interesting.
I don't trust anything by someone who has a bias.The very fact that Sykes book was written for the BNP shows that he has an agenda.

Id like to talk with you about Thorn great grandmother was Margaret Alberta Thorn and I cant get past her grandfather,Job.These Thorns located from somewhere to Rockbridge County in or near Lexington,Virginia. Jobs birth year shows 1804 but no other information is found on him but he did marry Tamsey Jane"Fannie" Cunningham possibly around 2-19-1847. I can also not verify this thru records.Id love to connect with you on the Thorn research.In the meantime,check out on The Thorn Family has a wealth of information that you might be interested in! Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!! Blessings.....

My gr-gr-gr grandfather is John Dee Maddox, 1807, Ga and Tuscaloosa Al. His father is Mark Maddox, 1775 (? Va or MD) according to wills, census records and family stories. Now, I'm new to y-DNA interpretation but on I match (almost exact - 18th position is incremented by 1- all other for y-67 match) to Mark Maddox 1775. That also matches me those claiming Henely Maddox, 1761 , Richard Maddox 1781,  Henry Maddox (?), Bennet Maddox 1771 and Thomas Milton Maddox 1881 SC, on (kit id# 672719 = me,  under Haplogroup R1b - Lineage IV).

Anyway, I'm hoping you or someone might be able to shed some light on what might be the connection between these matches or point me in the right direction. Also, I have matches in genetic distance of 5 to Thomas Nichols and Daniel Ogden which are names no one with knowledge of our family history recognize.

My cousin took the Y test and we learned we have a non paternity event, and our great grandfather was a Bentley. We're in Haplogroup GM201.
 After taking a family finder test, we have these common ancestors: Thomas Bentley(1725-1789) and Hannah X, Daniel Bentley (1752-1839) and Nancy Lewis, and Benjamin Bentley (1788-1857) and Elizabeth Crace.
 But those Bentley are in Haplogroup  I M253 under Bentley lineage III. Does this make sense? totally confused now. Can anyone offer any ideas?
