HI everyone my DNA is actually on here but for some resin it is under the name of my father how is my closest known ancestor that being john Vincent masters i am connected to the Berkeley,s of Scotland or at lest i think that is correct. Alister McDonald is doing a DNA study in Scotland universality but because the study is ongoing they would only give me limited information apparently the study is to do with Charles Edward Stuart i am connected to only one of two lineage

Brett, my dna tree is located on Ancestry.com. I'm also uploaded on GEDMatch. I can excuse one anomaly in my family tree, but when it's consistent over and over again, it's not just a coincidence. I'm pretty sure we are related by blood or marriage. With the Stuart name. Gedmatch Ancestry dna CW5964790, FTDNA EA9839233

Teresa, we match on 6 Chromosomes: 1, 2, 8 (2 matches), 10, 15, and 18. The largest cMs match is 4.2 cMs on Chromosome 2. The largest SNP match is 625 SNPs on Chromosome 15. Any relationship would have to be very far back.

Jon. Sinkler, younger. Bottom-right on this list of men in the parochin of Biggar, 1640.

Our Alexander Sinkler lineage now has a direct connection back to Scotland. We have a new member - named Sinclair - who tested out to 111 markers and matches several of us with 5 mutations out of 111 up to 8 mutations out of 111. His connection goes back to the early 1800s in Biggar Scotland. He's already ordered his Big Y test. Patience pays off.

Below is the page that I was most enthusiastic about, p. 611

I tried to cut and paste the Appendix, page 611, of the Biggar House of Fleming, but was not successful. It is a list of men in Biggar in 1640 and at the bottom of the page is "Jon Sinkler, younger"!

Gail you have been around for awhile now. I used Ancestry dna and was notified that my bloo8 is a royal bloodline.

Then I used my familytreedna on another site and a kings Crown was put on my page. Are you telling me that my bloodline is not royal?

No, I'm not telling you that your bloodline is not royal. I'm just saying to be careful of some of these sites that tell you things, then want more money to tell you more. I've also joined MyTrueAncestry to see what they said. It was fun and they said that I was related to Queen Victoria. Most people with H family haplogroups (mtDNA) do relate to her, but not all are descendants. My line goes a little farther back. King James IV Stewart, King of Scotland, is my 14th great grandfather. I have others. Once you get in the Royals, they're all connected. I've got Capets from France; my dad's line goes back to the Kings of Hungary; there are around 200 line to Charlemagne. That's the reason we're on here, to share our lineage, and correct it if we're wrong.

I seen a My True Ancestry as well and they had all kinds of crowns and knights on my page as well but Gail you are right, they want you to keep paying and paying and I believe their prices go up above 500$, its insane

William Warman, please take a look at Ytree.net link included below. The way to get your name on this chart is to take the Big Y test and then let Yfull.com verify what your most recent SNP is. The people you see on this chart, downstream of your R-L493 haplogroup, are proven to connect. The 111- marker test (STR) is good for more recent genealogy, but making definitive claims from their STR testing is not as reliable back to (or beyond) the medieval era. http://www.ytree.net/DisplayTree.php?blockID=1471

You notice that that is a Sample Match.

Wærmund to Warman is an ancestor of the Mercia royal family, a son of Wihtlaeg and father of Offa. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle makes him a grandson of Woden, but the Gesta Danorum written by Saxo Grammaticus goes no farther than his father, while the Brevis Historia Regum Dacie of Sven Aggesen makes Wermund son of king Frothi

William are you R-U198 or downstream

Hi William, You've completed the FTDNA 111-marker test. Based on that, you match a mix of surnames, but none at the 111-marker level. FTDNA predicts that you're part of the R-L493 haplogroup. According to what I find on various websites, that mutation happened roughly about 110 AD, possibly in England. You're therefore also R-L46, which looks to go back to Germany. The large haplogroup both of the above-mentioned SNPs go back to R-U106, which is very old. Among your 111-marker matches showing on your FTNDA kit, I don't see any spellings of our surnames - Sinclair, St Clair, Sinkler, etc. Does your research show a connection to any of our surnames? See these two links... Ytree.net being the most important and trustworthy of the two links - http://www.ytree.net/DisplayTree.php?blockID=1471 - - http://www.picton.us/picton-dna/l493

Hi William, I was just looking through my various sources for your name and I find a Wermund in Cheshire in the Domesday inquest. I don't see any mentions in my usual books. Was it an original English name? See - https://opendomesday.org/name/warmund-the-hunter/

Steve I counted 8 Warmund in the domesday.

Hello. I've finally discovered that my maternal great grandfather is William Sinclair of Houss (b.1460 d. 1539). Would anyone happen to have any information about him and/or his ancestors? Many thanks. Paul Collet

Steve, the results on my cousin's (Craig St. Clair) Big Y were complete as of 9/30/19. Can you help us interpret this? When Craig Sinclair was co-administrator he told me this could help us match to others who've done the Big Y and have verified paper trails. What do you recommend we do at this point? Thank you in advance! Kathryn

Steve, will you be moving Craig's kit to his "new" haplogroup? Also, with the matches, are they listed according to degree of genetic similarity? In other words, is the first name listed the one we're most closely related to? I see that of the top four matches listed, they are from two different haplogroups. I seem to remain permanently confused... Thanks, Kathryn

Hi, yes. This coming weekend I'll finally have time to move several new folks up to where they belong.
