- May 9, 2009Welcome, Kevin,You're doing well for having been able to trace your family back so far. Were the Huffs in England and Riley in Ireland? Q1b's are a very small group, so welcome!.Nadene Goldfoot----- Original Message -----From: Kevin RSent: Saturday, May 09, 2009 8:13 AMSubject: [Ashkenazi-Q] New Q to List
I have just joined, and thought I would introduce myself. Although I have been working on my tree for 10 years, I only had my DNA tested last fall. According to Jim Cullen's Hapolgroup predictor, I am Q-M242, which I think makes me a Q1b. I seem to be a DNA match for the descendants of Paulus Dirkse Huff, which is strange as my last name is Riley.
But there is a break in my line pre-1809, when my last known ancestor left home after a huge fight with his father. I am now thinking he changed his name as well as his address. We are from New Jersey, and there are a number of Huffs living there in that era.
I look forward to learning more about DNA, and this whole Q business, and seeing how I fit in.
