  • If YOU ARE ONE, BE ONE

    Just got my first twelve markers!

    R1b1!

    Not too surprising, really.

    Whoopee!!!

    Where are O'Connor, Francesco, Mike Maddi and all my other R1b1 brothers?

    I feel like celebrating!

    (Excuse me for being an idiot, please.)

    Here I am "cuginetto" (lil' cousin)!!!!

    BTW, maybe you have already written that on this forum but I missed it: where in Europe were your ancestors from?

      R1B1 really gets around. N/W Ireland to N/W China.

      i might as well throw a dart at the atlas to pick my ancient background.

        I am not really sure about my father's male line. British Isles, I think, but I don't know for sure. The paper trail dead ends in 1804 with the birth of my ggg-grandfather in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia (the finger of WVA between Pennsylvania and Ohio).

        I don't have any matches with anyone with my surname or one of its variants, and that is frustrating.

        That's a cool word: cuginetto.

        It's an honor to be your cuginetto, Francesco.

        Maybe our ancestors were in the legions together? Or maybe our common ancestor?

          You said it.

          It sure is hard to pin R1b1 down and say it is this or that.

              Congratulations on your results, Stevo! Are you already in the Stevens project? I noticed there are quite a few members, but no website for it yet.
              Kind of odd. What's up with that?

                there is a results page http://worldfamilies.net/surnames/s/...n/results.html

                and a patriarch page http://worldfamilies.net/surnames/s/stevenson/pats.html

                What else do ya need? except a few matches.

                I would say most people still don't know about dna genealogy. You might track down some people on the internet and post a link to the project. People with your surname or variant name..

                  Evidently our forefather - the son of Arrr - was pretty good at having sons, who were also good at having sons, who were also good at having sons, and so on.

                  Glad you are in the fold, Lost-Sheep!

                    I'm in it, but with no matches among all those guys.

                    I've got to recruit more Stevenses/Stephenses to test, but it's too common a surname, sadly.

                    I'm thinking of changing my name to Arrr Wonby and founding a new line.

                      R1b1"c" here......my R1b1's made it to PEI Canada from Guernsey........so now the question is French or English?? (perhaps when the sub-clade test is refined, more questions can be answered....

                        I have a Brother in Law with surname Steeves. Is that considered a variation?

                          I live on PEI....I did a quick check through communities in the phone book for Reiker. I didn't have any luck.

                          I checked the site which lists a great number of surnames on the Island. I didn't find Reiker there either.

                          If I can be of some help just ask.

                            I believe so, although it's not listed among our project variants.

                            Stevens/Stephens means "son of Stephen," and that's probably what Steeves means, as well.
