Beste, ik heb bij jullie een match (Y-DNA) met een zekere captein Antoine Floris met een genetische afstand van 2? Wat moet ik me bij deze voorstellen?
April 11 @ 10:02am
How many markers for your match? Does their tree have matches to your family? Do they match in Family Finder?

Hi there ! My name is Gasnier, before it was Garnier. Before Garnier it was Warnier... In Belgium, there's a lot a of Warnier. Is there a Warnier with his haplogroup J2 like me ?

Ah merci pour l'info ! Je n'ai pas ce fameux dictionnaire des noms Belges anciens... j'ai trouvé sur wikipédia l'Histoire de " Warnachaire II "... Qu'en pensez-vous ?
March 25 @ 2:41pm
J'avais acheté ce dictionnaire il y a 15 ou 20 ans. N'hésitez pas à me faire signe quand vous voulez faire une recherche sur un patronyme spécifique.
March 25 @ 2:44pm
Je ne connaissais pas l'histoire de Warnachaire II. C'est intéressant. On devrait pouvoir retrouver son nom dans "l'Histoire des Francs" de Grégoire de Tours : le livre est en lecture publique sur Google Books :

J'ai déjà le livre de Greg de Tours. Mais je nage dans l'analyse des patronymes spécifiquement sur les Garnier et Warnier. Bien à mon avis, ils avaient le même ancêtre commun au temps des Francs. Mais Ce nom Warnier, est-ce que c'est un Franc Salien ou ripuaire Rhénan puisque c'est un nom germanique ?

To Admin's: Just received my Big Y 700 results and am R-BY70198. I see this is reflected on your colorized chart. Still have a long way to go in understanding these results. One hell of a learning curve !!!! Wil try to upload to relevant sites. Got my raw data submitted to Williamson. I am in the guest section, non Benelux.

Hi Maurice, have you joined the Sherman Project, as your terminal SNP matches a record there for Henry of Dedham, Essex 1510 there. The other SNP's attributed to Henry there are R-M269, upstream of R-BY70198. Wikipedia has info on R-M269, and shows a tree of sub-clades. If you follow your terminal SNP back though the FTDNA Haplotree and compare the "L" SNP's you will M269/L53/L21 taking you down a branch for Brittany, Ireland, Scotland, Wales.

I am sure my ancestors was Frank people before the 5th century. And my name is germanic like Warnier in Belgium. I would like to meet J2a1 Belgian like me...

Franks only reached as far west to the river Schelde, or current Belgian city St-Niklaas. West from this are mainly populated in 3-4th century by Saxons, Frisians, Angles and also in 7-8th century by Vikings.

Hi, I am new here, I think I am the only e-y here ? Can anyone help me to find where I have to be.

Hello Roger, If you visit and paste your STR values in it predicts you as being in E1b1b > V13 . This is apparently the most common European version of E, even though it is rare in Benelux. It is most common in the Balkans, see
Hank de Wit
October 30 @ 5:02am
Hello again Roger. So since there doesn't appear to be a V13 or M78 group to join, that leaves the M35 group, which includes these sub-clades.
Roger Ombelet
October 30 @ 5:15am
Oke, thanks Hank

Roger, ik ben ook admin van het E-M35 project (net als Wim overigens). Dat is inderdaad het best passende Y-project. Je behoort overigens tot de V13 groep, net als een drietal percent van de Belgen.

Hi - I was curious as to why I am grouped under "not from Benelux". What determines this?
Michael Page
September 13 @ 10:42am
I'm not sure what constitutes a paper trail, but my paternal line originally is believed to have come from the Netherlands. I have a CD made by the Hendricks surname project here, however, showing the various lineages of our group in the USA. Since about the mid-18th Century our specific surname has been Hendryx, and before that, allegedly Hendriksen (whatever spelling).
Joel Lefever
October 12 @ 1:34pm
Michael, your surname is Page - was Hendricks the direct paternal line to you, or was it the surname of one of your grandmothers? If Hendricks was your direct paternal line (you-father-grandfather-ggrandfather etc.), you could make a case for your being included in Benelux by showing the direct male line and name changes.
Michael Page
October 13 @ 10:55am
Yes it's the direct paternal line (thanks to a non-paternity 'event').
Joel Lefever
October 15 @ 12:50pm
Do you know the most distant Hendricks ancestor? And where he lived? If so, you could enter the info into your FTDNA account, giving evidence of descending from someone who lived in the Benelux.
