Has this connection been looked at? Page 65. I have not seen any connection to my Browne/Browns and Mass. Also, I do not know where he saw it but he said that he might have seen a Valentine Browne (My Tree) somehow connected to "Meeks." I however have not seen this as of yet.

I have yet to prove this as of yet, but my Browne/Brown's maybe connected to Betchworth Castle in South East England (Surry, Kent). There was a Thomas Browne Sheriff of Kent that was beheaded because he felt this other guy should be king. One of my previous quotes I posted above is talking about that same line of Brownes. The author is also saying that my Browne's are connected with those he mentioned. Anyways , I wanted to throw that out there. You never know when we will find the Brown/Meek Connection.

It's good to have you in the project! Do you know the name and date of birth of your earliest paternal ancestor? Joe Meek and Stephen Meek, brothers who were both famous pioneers, were originally from Washington County, Virginia. They happen to be related to my Meek line, which is Group E1 in the project.

I don't really know that far but my great grandpa was named James Woodrow meek

See pg 633, The Meek Family of Washington Co., Virginia, by Danny Fluhart. James Woodrow Meek is cited as descending from James, William, Stephen, William, Stephen, Joseph Meek Sr.. James Woodrow Meek is #2109 in the book, with five children cited: Alice Fay, Mabel Ann, Mary Carol, Ruth Ann, and James William Meek b. 26 Jan 1947. Helpful ?

I sent in my dna file from Ancestry, will this be be entered and will I see what group I am in?

As of a few minutes ago, it doesn't show your Ancestry DNA file as having been uploaded. The short answer is that an Ancestry transfer won't directly show which group in the project you are in because the project is grouped by a type of DNA that Ancestry does not test, but sometimes we can predict which group you will be in based on who you match. Who is your earliest known paternal-line ancestor and where is he from? There are 3 main types of DNA used for genealogy: (1) Y-DNA which is paternal-line DNA that only men have passed down from father to son to son unchanged except by rare mutations, (2) mtDNA which is maternal-line DNA which both men and women have but only women pass on (a man's children inherit their mother's mtDNA), and (3) autosomal DNA which is everything else and which is the vast majority of your DNA that is randomly inherited 50% from each parent. Ancestry just tests autosomal DNA, so it is useful for all branches of your family but the randomness of what DNA is inherited means it's not really useful once you go back about 200 years. The project is grouped by Y-DNA, which only keeps track of your paternal line but which tracks that line back accurately hundreds or even thousands of years.
William Lennard William Lennard has a question!

I keep coming across the Meek name in connections that I can't find a relation to and after taking the YDNA test there are more Meeks than anything else so now I am curious if our name changed or there is a misattributed parentage Has anyone has come across the Lennard name (especially with that spelling)? My family is originally from the Virginia migrating to Georgia around the 1800s.

Do you know where they come from in Europe? It's possible you're in the S27900 SNP with Meek Group E (which I am in). That group has lots of common markers, includes men with the surname Powell, and is about 2000 years old. I'd recommend you join the ZZ37 project as well.

Presumable Ireland, Scotland, or England, but we have not been able to get further back than Virginia. Your guess seems to be likely as Powell is another common name in my YDNA results. I will look into that project. Thank you.

Here's a 1833 will by Samuel Meek filed in Carroll, Mississippi naming his brother James Meek as executor. A couple of other Meeks are witnesses.
