My quick observation is that although their pedigrees do not show it there is a good chance of a genealogical connection between B6 & B7 although I think their haplotype is very common.  Not much connection between the other R1b1b2's.

I have encouraged the Bull website to post a link to the Bull/Buell DNA project.  This is the NY line of Bulls.

I understand the idea of including Turnbull with Bull.  But from the
standpoint of origins there appears to be no British connection.  Turnbull
is Celtic and is found exclusively in Northern England and Southern Scotland
in the 1881 British census.  Bull on the other hand is English and is found
exclusively in the midlands and south of England in the 1881 British census.
Of course there may have been some crossover but given these facts and the
rareness of the names I would guess any Bull/Turnbull connection is
genealogically insignificant i.e. irrelevant except in very rare cases.

A 4g gm was Eleanor Turnbull b 1794 in Northumberland, Eng. hence my
interest in Turnbull.  Another 4G gm was Elizabeth Bull of Orange Co, NY going back to William Bull of Staffordshire, Eng.

Ray, I am Very new to the group.  I am stil awaiting FTDNA67 results. I have a lot to learn about DNA links, but have explored geneology since 1980 , LOTs of info, some of it very useful.

My maternal Grandmother was a Turnbull, born in Gateshead, Durham Co,, England & we trace back to 1766 with Turnbulls and large families.

Bull in the family name of my paternal GGF, born near Kropelin, Mecklenberg, Germany in 1851 -  changed to Buhl in 1890's Detroit.  One of his sisters married a Vick.

This is bound to be interesting. 

Your reference to Northumberland, which is just across the Tyne River from Gateshead.

And although the Bull s of my German ancestors lived near the North Sea just East of Hamburg, family oral history had it that an ancestor Bull had been a Jockey in England.

The Vick relative is an active Geneologist in Romeo , Michigan.
