I am on my father’s (Arthur Brown) account and had his family finder dna tested. He is a J-M172 match with numerous Montgomerys and a R-M269 match with one. The J-M172s are from his father’s side and the R-M269 is from his mother’s side. Marian Montgomery Brown Shope

My name is Leif Magne Meling, born in Stavanger in 1955. My family (the Meling and Lunde families) has for many years has for many years build a family tree by using Geni and My Heritage. The tree has become complicated and I started to use FTDNA become large and complicated and have now Started using FTDNA. The family tree includes priests and bishops and other nobilities, some very close and some more distant.
On my Danish side I have Identified that the Søfren Jenson belonging to the to the Løvenbalk family from Denmark. He is mentioned in the archives. He became very wetly by using his position as the Major of Bergen to acquire properties: in Bergen, Rogaland and elsewhere. My family inherited part of the Mosterøy Monastery.
I have Several matches from the Montgomery clan and the Cook family
My challenge is to link the Lunde, Meling, Montgomery and the Cook family and hopefully update our family three and. I need a strategy to do so
My mail Happlogroup is JPF7413 and mtdna V17.

Are there, in this project, any descendants of Alexander Montgomery, Sr. b. about 1725, County Monaghan, Ireland, d. 1810 Oswego, N.Y. m. Sarah Lockwood?
I have one FTDNA match at a distance of zero, at 67 markers, but he has not responded to my attempts to make contact through the channels provided here. So, I thought I would post this query here to see if I get any nibbles.

Hopefully someone can assist me to further my tree. My father’s maternal grandfather’s line is Montgomery. The advanced match for Montgomery for my Dad shows a male 5th cousin that has taken the Y-DNA111 with J-M172. This person responded and stated that his tree hasn’t been worked on yet. Can I assume that my Dad’s Montgomery line would also be J-M172 ?
I know this web link is a DNA group, but if someone has any Ancestral information earlier than James Montgomery BIRTH 24 JUL 1754 • Charles County, Maryland, USA D-1810 • York County, South Carolina, USA. His father may be
Hugh Montgomery b 1727 Ireland d 1785 South Carolina with no info on wife or a James Sr. I would appreciate some help. I know our Montgomery family lived in York, SC and have copies of deed info. FYI- my father is 96 yrs old, Arthur Bell Stovall. Thank you. Laurie Stovall Lichaa.

I finally received my Y500 results and all 3 matches are Montgomerys at 10 Genetic distance. How many years would this be? I know that Montgomerys lived on Dripps land in Scotland. But obviously since it is in my Y DNA then we are more than geographically located.

I just joined your group because my new Haplogroup is R-FGC53827 with all Montgomery matches!
