Question: Long ago, Gwen Boyer-Byorkman helped me monitor the Stark Y-DNA group. My brother in law submitted his DNA test and I persuaded a distant cousin to send his DNA sample in to the Y-project. I keep getting notifications that there is a new 'match' for our Starks line, but I can't get into the proper page to see who it might be. Can one of the administrators help me. Long ago, Gwen B-B helped me get in, but since I took the mtDNA test, that is the only group I am allowed to see. Even if I add the Kit # to the Stark haplogroup, I can only see my mtDNA pages.

Shirley, FTDNA made it more difficult for the admins and the participants/sponsors about 1.5 years ago because of the increased email and password security in European countries that came into effect. However, for me, when I go to sign in on FTDNA, a list of kit numbers appears and I can choose which one I want to sign in as - and then see. But it's just one at a time, with its own password, etc.

Hi, my name is Stephen Stark and my grandfather Donald Legene Stark was born in Arkansas where evidently quite a few Starks that I am related to were born. I'm new to the site but would love to connect to any other Starks... I've submitted DNA data from 23&Me but am not sure where to go from there on this site. I also use and found a very extensive family tree connecting all the way from my grandfather to James Stark Sr. who appears to be the first in my line to come over from Scotland. from there a few John Starks are listed back to 1604 but I am going to have to do some digging to see how legitimate all of this info is.

Hi Stephen, Please email me directly for more information. This project is designed to support Stark men who have done Y DNA testing and it appears you have not done this yet. Cordially, Sheila (nee Stark) Schmutz

Hi there, looking for ancestors and history of my G-G-Grandfather Wyald Stark b. circa 1832, lived in Florida, parents may have been George or John Stark and Amelia Blake. Thank-you Karen Phillips

Has anyone ever heard of the Starkweather name? My ancestor is Robert Starkweather (supposedly from Scotland, Wales, or the Isle of Man). His wife was Jenet Roberts of Wales. I would love to know where he originated. I have done both MTDNA and FF. Mary Lardi

Question, I did the Y-DNA111 package and received my Paternal Halo group of R-M269. I also have 23andMe which lists my Paternal Halo group of R-Z156. Could anyone shed some light on this?

Haplogroups are determined by Y-DNA SNPs. Y111 is a Y-DNA STR test. It can only provide a haplogroup estimate. 23andMe also provides an estimate based on a limited number of Y-DNA SNPs tested but it goes deeper than what you got from your Y111 test. Your 23andMe value is more precise.

You can search this page for one mention of Z156 and a few mentions of Z381 which is one step above you. Otherwise, you fall about 4 steps under R-U106 which has a whole section >

I would like to express my appreciation to the Stark Project administrators. Clovis and Caroline have been most helpful in my ancestral search. Without their help I would probably aimless bouncing into the brick walls. Thanks You all. On another note, I wish if possible all Stark members would list their earliest Stark ancestors, list surnames and locations, and again if possible summit their trees to FTDNA. I suspect some people feel if they summited DNA swabs their whole genealogical history would be presented to them. That is probably a common misconception. I also felt that was a possibility but learned that was only one of the starting points along with family stories, bibles, and public records . Let’s help each other. Vern Starks

If I'm the last to notice this, so much the better; if you haven't noticed, however: it appears that Clovis LaFleur's content on Rootsweb has been restored and is readable once again! Best, Lee

How do you make public your family tree? My last name is Starkes but we have found out that it should be Starks. My great great grand father William Henry Starks was born in Wisconsin in 1862 and he say his parents names were william and eleizabeth but that may not be true - Im stuck.

There seems to be a lot of Stark and Starks in Wisconsin, we spent some time searching in the Sheboygan area but could just not find any data on William Henry starks.

Seems to be a common name combination. My grandfather was William Henry Stark, but born in Chicago in 1925.
