I handle my husbands DNA kits.
He has tested Y-DNA 111 and R1b - M222 SNP Pack
His haplogroup started at M-269 and as he upgraded he went to M-222 and finally after the SNP Pack he is now R-DF105
There appears to be a NPE around the 1850's which came as a shock.
He has no matches to any Hodges in the Hodges Project and his highest matches are O'Malley.
A little background.
His supposed ggg grandparents George and Hannah Hodges arrived in Australia as convicts and went on to have a large family.
I began to notice on Ancestry that he had no matches with any of their descendants.
It wasn't until one of their 'grandsons' called Henry that the matches began.
Henry was my husband's great grandfather.
A match came up on Ancestry 33 cM across 4 segments which means we could share ggg grandparents and in her tree are O'Malley's.
He was lucky enough to find a second cousin that tested that also descends from Henry and he too has the same match, in fact all descendants of Henry that have come up match with this O'Malley family.
So my questions are;
Do you think I'm on the right track in thinking he is an O'Malley?
If so could you tell me a little about his branch?
