I'm only sorry I can't test my father's line. He and his brothers are deceased, as is my only brother.
I will send for the kit for my mother's line.

A lot of work went into this and I appreciate the effort and results.
One question; how much information came about from the DNA thing?
Like I1a, I1c is believed to have originated during the Paleolithic, and to have taken refuge
from the Ice Age in Iberia. After wards, it spread into other portions of Europe,
especially The Low Countries, Germany and, possibly, the British Isles.
This haplotype may be Norse, Norman, Anglo-Saxon or even Flemish.
The hits are simply too far flung to suggest anything definitive.

We know that we have both Scotch and Irish blood in our veins and we even know about when it all happened. Unfortunately the split in the name happened to a family name that is similar to ours at about the same time frame.

Its where I retired back in 2002 and they elected to remain here and continue their education while I went out globe trotting....
My family history on my Fathers side is from Central/ Northern Virginia extending up into the Appalachians a bit.
My actual history extends on my Mothers side into Central America as well making for a very interesting family tree for ancestor worship.

Geneticists at the Johns Hopkins University announced Monday that an estimated seven million people worldwide carry a distinctive genetic marker linking them to a single smooth-talking common ancestor.
According to the study, which analyzed blood samples from 4,000 participants in 17 countries, the lineage appears to have originated with a highly virile ninth-century Welsh nobleman known as Gwilym of Many Conquests.
"This is one of the largest diasporas known to have descended from a single progenitor," said head researcher Lawrence Ghilcrest, adding that DNA evidence now corroborates stories about the Welshman that historians once dismissed as myth. "To have propagated his genetic material so effectively, and across so much territory, we can only infer Gwilym was quite the charmer."
