Kathleen, I feel your pain. Our family name is Holden and we have a good paper trail back to 1816 with a possible additional generation but no paper trail tormh51
Millie, I've had similar results with my father's paternal line. The family name is Anderson, and the brick wall is the oldest ancestor in 1822. Have firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm writing to ask for help in what to do next with respect to my husband's Y-DNA test (Peter Raymond Thomas FTDNA kit # 410846). His 67 marker results came inmilliegenealogy
See the Wiki article for R1b. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1b_%28Y-DNA%29
P25 and M269 are part of R1b along with several large younger subclades; L21, U152, DF27, P312, U106, L23x.
R1b is the largest haplogroup for people from Europe. Please consider deeper SNP testing. Most hobbyists recommend that R1b people Geno 2 or SNP test and STR test to at least 67 markers. This helps you find the right subgroups and filters out false matches. 111 STRs is becoming the new standard for analysis.
If you are a National Genographic M343+ or M269+ tester please transfer your results to FTDNA and join the R1b DNA project http://www.familytreedna.com/groups/R-1b/about
When you receive deep clade (SNP) results, please continue in the R1b project, but also join the applicable major subclade of R1b project:
R1b-M269 and P312- U106- http://www.familytreedna.com/groups/ht-3-5new/about
R1b and P297- http://www.familytreedna.com/public/R1b1Asterisk/
If you are new to DNA testing please join DNA Newbies group http://groups.yahoo.com/groups/DNA-NEWBIE/
The group's purpose is to advance deeper testing and understanding of R1b. This forum is intended for those in the project and interested in pursuing project goals. English is the primary language used on this forum. Do not use for non-R1b topics, promotion, a cultural agenda or to denigrate others. This can result in being banned without warning.
