  • Great news Stevo! WhooHoo!

    I've got relatives over so I can't write much, but it's great you got your results. Now for some R1b jokes...

    Is anybody still left behind?

      There are 3 Prices in Y-Search that you are a 24/25 match with all of them showing Wales as their point of origin. One could easily be the Dr.Price you mention with 37 markers tested.

        I see where you got that from now.

        Interesting . . .

        A genetic distance of 1 from all three of those Price entries. Naturally, none of them have GEDCOMs in YSEARCH that I can look at. They may be all from the same line.

        Since none of them share my surname, I'm not too excited, but it could indicate Welsh ancestry maybe.

        There's no tradition of that in my family, but you never know.

          Thanks, Steve!

          R1b jokes?

          I can't wait!

          • R1b matches

            R1b matches can be a little more complicated than J2e matches like I have. There aren't many of our haplotype getting tested, so the 23/25 match I have with my relative is significant.
            Anyway, my cousin and I have our common ancestor 8 generations ago, so it might not be impossible at all to hook up paper trails with a 24/25 match
            I'm still trying to make my mtdna matches work; I'm blessed with a rare haplotype there too.
            Gotta go act like a host again...

            • The Bad News

              The bad news is that I have no matches whatsoever with anyone with my surname or its variants.

              Those Prices, I believe, are all Americans, and probably in the same family.

              On my personal page I show only one or two distant matches in the real Wales.

              • congrats!

                Glad you got your results!

                  They are Americans, that is correct. But, if you click on their Y-Search numbers it'll take you to their pages showing the info they wish to display. They're probably related based on the DNA but each lists a different person as their most distant known ancestor. John b c1695; Thomas b c1730; John b 1763 all born in Wales.

                  I just find it interesting that you seem to have an arrow pointing at Wales. Also the fact that for a R1b1 haplogroup member you sure don't seem to have a lot of close matches. You think alien astronauts may have used Wales as a landing site?

                    Good points.

                    Have I been a Welshman all these years and not known it?

                    What should I do? Buy some Tom Jones CDs? Start calling everyone "Boy-O"?

                    It will be interesting to see what gives at 37 markers and beyond.

                      I was reading the DNA list over on Rootsweb and saw this:

                      late medieval Flemish origin

                      Early mediveval Flemish and Hanseatic Trade immigrants are another source.

                      "The first Flemish weavers emigrated to the British Isles during the reign of William the Conqueror, who was married to Mathilda, the daughter of the count of Flanders.
                      ....a sizeable group of Flemish weavers settled in Pembrokeshire in South Wales, the site of the earliest Welsh textile production, making a significant economic impact on life in South Wales... "

                      http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read...-05/1148126751

                      Might explain your prediliction for Belgian Waffles.

                      It's off to a soccer game with one of my girls. Have fun figuring out who you are.

                      • That would explain both the Frisian haplotype and the Welsh thingee

                        Ahhh . . .

                        Fascinating!

                        Flemings - who would likely have Frisian R1b1 - in Wales.

                        Makes sense.

                        You're a wise one, Obi-Wan . . . er, DMac.

                          My R1b1 head is spinning.

                          My wife, who has been in Russia with my daughter the last few weeks visiting our relatives there, will laugh when she finds out I'm kind of a typical Westerner.

                          I thought it would have been funny if I had come out R1a or some other typical Russian haplogroup.

                          They come back tomorrow. I pick them up at Dulles Airport at 5:30pm EST.
                          Congratulations, Stevo. You can stop holding your breath now.

                          Something tells me, though, that after your trip to Dulles we'll read less and less from you.

                            Oh, yeah!

                            The little woman won't let me spend so much time in front of the computer; neither will my little redheaded daughter, Anna.

                            They're supposed to be bringing me some good Ukrainian vodka (Pertsovka), among other things.

                            I've missed the two of them a lot. I'm really looking forward to seeing them in just a few hours from now. I've got to leave soon to make sure I get there on time. The traffic around here is terrible.

                            • well well...another R1B1.

                              Congrats on your results Stevo



                              I have matches in 12 and 25..but no matches in 37.

                              My snp and 38-59 results are still due Monday...is anybody else waiting on 147 results?

                                FYI, I just read a website that contradicts what I wrote above:

                                http://www.math.mun.ca/~dapike/famil...nographic.html

                                According to this website (whose author probably knows much more than I do):
                                • Genographic Project does a free SNP test if they cannot predict your haplogroup with certainty.
                                • FTDNA does not do a free SNP test if they can't predict your haplogroup with certainty. Instead, you do have to order and pay for the haplogroup confirmation test if you want to know your haplogroup.
                                • FTDNA results cannot be uploaded to the Genographic Project if the haplogroup has not been predicted with certainty (or tested). In this case, you'll need to order the haplogroup confirmation test before your results can be uploaded to the Genographic Project.


                                I knew I had read something about a free SNP test!
