Six months ago, I received the results of my yDNA tests and it has already helped me to find several 'branches' of the family, I did not know about. Also the journey of my haplotype, into Arabes Nabataei, to the Fertile Crescent, the Caucasians, over to Bulgar/Avar/Maygar Kingdoms (thank you NatGeo gene research), then into Poland, west to Germany and overseas to the US and Canada, before the Rev. War. What a trek in the last 20,000 years. Where is your families 'travelog'?
Looking for my G5gparents- I do know my G4gparents: G4gf- :*: Henry Teter Sr. G4gf- Henry Teter Sr. b. 1756- Hesse Cassel or Brandenburg, Germany Greene County, Manchester(Akron), Hamilton, Northampton, Pennsylvania, United States (Near Conewago Crk -NE of Gettysburg) – 1790, Philadelphia area ~1801 through WV to1818, d.

Wow, what great information you have been able to get from the
yDNA test. I hope to be able to talk one of my male O'Connell
relatives into taking it one day.
