Re: How many people on this list are r1b1c7

 

Hi Diane -- the Islay group is a "subgroup" of this one. If you login to the main site at https://scotland-genealogy.groups.io/g/Scots you can see all the subgroups on the menu on the left. Everyone in a subgroup is also a member of the main group, but the opposite is not true. 

If you write to Islay@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io it will go only to members of Islay. 

If you write to Scots@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io it goes to all of us.

All the best,

Valorie

Hi Bob,

It can be disappointing after paying out so much money to have your DNA tested only to find you are not who you thought you were.  I have this experience twice now.  At 70, I paid for my brothers  DNA. Did the Y67 marker and found heaps of names too many,   but not the PLACE surname I was after. Left it for a few years then did my own with ancestry and got this large cm match but not with PLACE  but with BARTON (they go back to Scotland and Ireland) Colonel William Robert BARTON and also a match with his wife Ann BOGUES (Ireland) I was looking for a great grandfather, my match was a match with a gt gt grandfather W R BARTON. My Gt GF  was one of their seven sons, not sure which one but at least I had found a common ancestors, albeit if a different name.  Also I had my daughters DNA tested on ancestry for her fathers line, then had his tested on Family Tree DNA no sign of the MCARTHUR name.  Like you several other Clan surnames, updated to Y111 just nine men with four names the main one McDonald/MacDonald along with one  McKay, Carmichael, Campbell, McNeil.  Most were from the Caithness, Scotland region. Having also done a Ancestry.com. Test for my former husband noted thirteen McDonalds 6 of whom ancestry say his DNA showed he was related.  I did write to them all but no reply, but the fact it is clear he  doesn’t to date. have McARTHUR DNA.  But, on Family Tree DNA it is a 8 step match which is only a possible relationship, so we need a 7 step for a definite relationship.  The closest relationship match on FTDNA is 0 steps, whereas on ancestry it is the other way round. On Ancestry.com we had as low as 7cm and still be a firm match. I have good  trees up on both Family Tree DNA and Acestry.com. The surnames are especially needed when you or your match sees unfamiliar surnames. We have many in the form of spouses names that can come up and the name indexes created by your trees  will assist in matching these unfamiliar names to yours, or their tres when making a search in the matches trees.

 

My second son then had a My Heritage, a Big Y (that gives you the 12,25, 37, 67 and the Big Y, but expensive and doesn’t define the Y111 DNA marker any further. The Big Y is for the experts, which most of us are not, many are I am sure and may understand it.

 

I had my oldest sons Y67 and updated to Y111 as well  and joined them  up to Arthur Project, Scottish Project, Vikings, Australian Settlers, Australian Citizens, Scandanavian and Germanic Projects. Apart form the Arthur project, they only match each other at 0 steps. While FamilytreeDNA are the largest of the companies that do YDNA, they are still very small databases and we need other men t o do the All male YDNA with familytreedna. At least it is a lot clearer if you have one of those oops or for whatever other reason the name is not what you expected, then is is more evident on familytredna than ancestry.com.  You need both to compliment each other.  Maybe you could do an ancestryocm test too Bob and you will maybe get a Large CM count you were not expecting like me. Then go bck to your match on Familytreedna as they may be on there but meant nothing to you when you first saw them. Upgrade to Y111 and the surnames will be reduced and you get a better picture.

 

Best Wishes

Re: How many people on this list are r1b1c7

 

Thank you! Those two researchers might be a big help to me. I so appreciate it.

The MacQuarry in Australia that is famous is Lachlan MacQuarry and he is actually called the father of Australia. He was the governor of New South Wales and helped establish many townships and a lot of the roadways and city/town layout/infrastructures. I don’t remember him being kidnapped and taken there, but I could’ve missed that part of his story. I just thought he was assigned the post of governor win great Britain took control of Australia. Either way, I have found no links to him yet, but we shall see! Happening upon interesting stories and famous relatives would be fun.

Again, thank you so much for your response and for sending me those two contacts. I look forward to reaching out to them.

I think you may be referring to Major General Lachlan Macquarie, who was Governor of New South Wales from 1810 – 1822.
At that time the whole settled areas of Australia including the island of Van Diemen’s Land (now Tasmania) was known as NSW, and there was a Lieut Governor in VDL.
 
Scottish born Lachlan Macquarie is known as the ‘Father of Australia’ and these links will tell you much more about the man credited with transforming fledgling colony.
He is buried on the Isle of Mull and his tombstone includes the inscription ‘Father of Australia’.

He served in the American Revolution, but none of the records have found through fold three or daughters of the American Revolution show parents names. North Carolina didn’t start issuing death certificates until the early 1900s. He passed in 1829.

Yes, his first wife was Rachel and he had six kids with her. Then he left New Jersey and moved to North Carolina and remarried, having 4 more children, which is where my family line comes into play. We don’t know why he left his wife in New Jersey.

What exactly do you mean by "trying again"? The most important thing you can do with Y dna results is to join a project or two, and share your data with the group admins. Since Y dna is very slow to change, it can reach far into the past, before surnames. if you have very few Elder men test, you will have very few matches. 

So this is my advice, based on experience and the advice of others:

1. Join a haplogroup DNA project at FTdna. Contact the admins and ask if they have the access they need to make use of your data, and ask for their help to make the changes they suggest. After they finish putting your listing in the group database, ask them for advice. Should you upgrade? Or is it better to find and recruit more men to test? 

2. After looking at your results in the haplogroup project, consider joining a surname project as well. Even small surname projects can be useful. Both my Cowan and McBee memberships have been very fruitful. These were my dad's and uncle's tests. If I had unlimited time and money, I would find men for other Y DNA tests I'm curious about too!

3. If the project admins suggest upgrading your test to Big Y, go for it. I think in future this will be the gold standard for Y testing. It's coming down in price; wait until there's an upgrade sale. Your project leader can get you even more of a discount sometimes. Big Y gets you all the information possible from that tiny little Y chromosome.

4. Keep doing your research! This is how you will find other male-line men you can ask to test. Both Y and mitochondrial testing can prove (or disprove) genealogical questions far into the past, but the research must be meticulous. 

If your questions are not far into the past, spend your energy on autosomal testing instead. Once you have flogged your Ancestry DNA matches and their matches, then upload elsewhere and do the same. Remember to put all those matches into your tree! That is how you will make the breakthroughs in the past two centuries. 

Y and mt can take you further, but only on the matri-patrilineal lines. Autosomal gets all your lines, but only back a few hundred years.

Re: McQueenzey

Hi Howard

Trying to reply just to you as this is Ayrshire not Islay, but not sure if I’ve done it right! 

I have an ancestor (6th great grandmother) with name either Christine or Cathrine McQueensy/McQueenzie who married James Clerk & had children in New Cumnock, Ayrshire. I haven’t found a baptism for her – and don’t know if she was born in Ayrshire.  I had wondered if the name might be a variation on McKenzie, so I was interested in your suggestion it could be McWhinnie, so thank you for that!

 

Best wishes,

Ashlee,

Re MacQuarrie/MacQueaghrie, my line goes back to McQuarrie but in Ayrshire, not Islay (despite years of trying!). But there are variations you might like to look out for.

- McWharrie is the main predecessor of my McQuarrie line - the transformation from McWharrie to McQuarrie can be seen in the same people over their lifetimes. My earliest ancestor is John McWharrie then McQuarrie & Kathrine Campbell who were in New Cumnock, Ayshire abt 1767 on. A variation on the variation is Wharrie.

- McQueenzey (I assume pronounced mac-queeny, silent 'z'), which is close to McQuhenzie which itself is a variation of McWhinnie. This baptismal record might simply be a clerical error because McWhinnie was a lot more common in the parish than McWharrie, but there it is in 1775 in the OPR so cannot just be ignored.

Of course, my McQuarries might have been McWharries in the first place who came from somewhere else. But appearing in Ayrshire with a Campbell wife, and with recurring forenames of Flora and Colin and Lachlan, does rather indicate McQuarrie Islay / Ulva origins.

Aww, thank you. I have an Ancestry subscription. Just can’t get more info on parents or anyone beyond my 6th great grandfather. His name was Malcolm McCourry, 1742-1829. We know all about him as far as his kidnapping, settling in NJ, and eventually moving to NC. We just know nothing of his parents. Some show that his last name was a variation of MacQuarie before he came to NY. So all we know of his dad is that last name, the possible first name of John, 1720-1742, Argyll, Islay. All we know of his mom is a possible first name of Rachel. But even with that info, we can’t get any further. You’re welcome to dig around if you want. I welcome the help!

I haven’t had my DNA tested (for genealogy, anyway - I did have genetic testing due to a breast cancer diagnosis 6 years ago). So I’m afraid I can’t help. However, my dad and I are having difficulty getting info on my 6th grandfather born in Islay and I wondered if you had any tips on research in that specific area outside of Scotland’s People and church records. He was kidnapped at 9 years old on an Islay beach and came to the US through NY 10 years later (1761). There are no birth records we can find, so we don’t know his parents’ names. Only that his dad was a MacQuarrie/MacQueaghrie that died in Scotland in 1746 at the age of 26. No first name known, no wife known. :( Any info on researching for Islay would be helpful!

I know next to nothing about genetics other then I was a parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis. Unfortunately she died many years ago at 7 years of age.

 

I have had my DNA tested and of course I am a carrier of CF as as is my husband of CF, my other children are also carriers of CF.

 

 I know I am 60 % Scottish ( My dad was born in Islay. I know I am 20% Irish. My Great grandmother was born in Port Rush Ireland and her name was Elizabeth Rush. The other portions is European.

 

What I don t know is how this all works together. Any one have some educational materials they can recommend?

Problem is I can't afford the more expensive tests. and cut my   Social Security finally decided to put me on my ex my SS and cut my disability from $657 to $124 and take away my SS check and give me only $506 on his SS.  So i lost  almost $300 from my total SS.  I would love to go thru Family tree and get my brothers full DNA done.  And they did this without telling me they were going to do it so it was a big surprise to me when i got the letter.  And even with them lowering my disability I am still not allowed to work and at 73 not many people would give me a job.

Re: How many people on this list are r1b1c7

 

Dee, can you tell us what advantage CGI offers? That test has no value for genealogy research. 

Ancestry + 23andMe is a great idea, since you can upload results elsewhere with either of those (Family Tree DNA, MyHeritage, LivingDNA, Gedmatch, Geneanet). His Y DNA at Family Tree DNA can be useful as well and while you're at it, add on a mitochondrial test, since you and he have the same mtDNA. In my opinion, have him do the Big Y if you can afford it. I think both that and the mt tests will become increasingly useful as more people do them. - Valorie

I put back what i can each month then hit them up when they go on sale.  I still need to update mine and get 4 more people done.

At least mine is R1B1 not the rest, but my Hamilton is not Viking one - it's Roman as in Roman Empire.
