Please explain the Ivey/Busby relationship. Is this a particular haplogroup or region?

How do you get from a predicted to a confirmed haplogroup?

You have a test for the specific SNP or SNPs you're investigating.

My name is Nancy Norton-Nix and I am the family researcher for the Iveys. Ken, my cousin, has agreed to do DNA. I have been trying to get a male to do this-seems like forever as there are only about 5 Ivey males in our family that I know of.

DNA shows the ancestor Adam Ivey b. 1640. Now to link now to then.

I'm new to the 'project' scene and am uncertain as to the procedure. So here goes. My surname is Wheatley but having taken the Family Tree YDNA-111 test, I find that most of the people showing up in listings is Ivey and Busby. The Wheatley/McLemore clans are from Benton, Faxon and two other close by counties in the western part of Tennessee. There is a strong presence of Ivey/Busby in nearby counties and this leads me to look and see how a James Ivey (1810-1850) and Jacob Busby (1760-1839) have in essence put me on their team. Thanks, Neil

I am finding some of my matches have 8 or 10 common surnames with me on different lines of my tree. They are listed as 2nd to 4th cousins. If we match on so many different lines, would this tend to make it look like we are closer cousins than we really are?

The first time I looked at my Ivy/Ivey matches after doing the autosomal test I had 7 matches. Today I pulled it up again and it showed only 1. What is going on and what does this mean?

After taking R-1b backbone test, I was quite surprised to find I belong to R-U106, Z156. All haplo predictors chose R-L21 (Celtic) but the STR predictor for R-U106 ( Germanic ) was way out in the 65th marker and I have only been tested for 37. Because of this, many exact matches are not matches at all. Z156 is an interesting group as many royal houses of Europe are from this haplogroup. My guess is that my Ivey came in England or Ireland during the Norman invasion from France as most Normans at that time were Frankish (predominantly R-U106) and English or possibly even much earlier. Hopefully there will be more info soon as to the origins of this large group. I highly recommend having SNP's tested.
