Hello - my 3rd great grandmother was a Kraak from Borgholzhausen, Germany. My 6th great grandfather of that lineage was Hinrich Kraak, born 1660. Very interested to learn more about possible origins of this name. Occasionally spelled Krack.

Hi. I am very new to this and thought I would ask for some help. My Y-DNA lineage is a J-M267 My father was adopted in 1920. I found papers after he passed that his birth parents names were S. Philip Kraker and Marie Trotier Kraker. I really don't know how to proceed. Any tips or help? Much appreciated.

“My father's (surname Kyriakou) Y-DNA lineage is a J1-M267 (J-PF7261) Haplogroup. Geographically that places my ancestry in the general region of the earliest history of the Kyriakou. clan. Are the results provided sufficient to confirm or reject a relationship?”

Catholic Pope #1 and #21 and Subclade R1b-L1066
A Roman Centurion Jew baptized by Jesus apostle, Saint Peter. He is known as St. Cornelius the Centurion aka Corneille aka Crow. His conversion marks the break between the earliest Church and the Synagogue (Acts 10 and 11 ).
~ 21st Pope was also a Crow.
~ Specific attributes of these two popes match specific attributes of our family ancestors of religious orders in pre-England, and France, Italy, Spain, Isle Of Man, Scotland, Ireland.
~ The information above was discovered at the end of a very long and complex journey...

My AT-84 keyboard had a piece of blue plastic stuck under the 'H' key - this image removes the two extra 'h's for the "Quryaqos' spelling applicable to various Middle Eastern countries.

Update 1366 x 250 banner for this web site at Family Tree DNA that now includes a minimalized version of the name tree image that can also be seen in it's larger, more readable form among the other photos here. (That larger image needs also to be updated to include the new formatting seen in this one.)

Minimized version of our Family Crest, the Znak Radu Cyriaci banner that was created and carried by a group of Crusaders to symbolize the medical first aid entity they established and where it was located (most likely) near any battlefield. Ben Ciriacks assumes that the Cyriaci to which they are referring is Cyriacus at the Baths (of Diocletian) who was martyred at the beginning of the 4th century.
