Melissa,

I'm not sure what your question is concerning the 18 at YCAIIa? But the
haplotype is classic I1a haplogroup. 19 at YCAIIa is the overwhelming norm
and this haplotype most likely had a recent mutation to 18 which means
nothing other than even slow mutating markers sometimes mutate.

> Yes Phil, the results are at:

> My father's markers are #4. The obvious matches are numbers 2,3 and 5.
#5 is not uploaded to y-search, which I think would have been easier to
read, but I'm just glad the administrator put up this website so I could see
the numbers.
>
> As far as locations go, #2 is in the southern part of the US (SC/AL), the
rest are 'mid-Atlantic', #3 is NJ/NY, #4 NJ, and #5 CT/NJ.

> I believe I'm correct in stating #s 2, 3 and 5 all go back further than
myself and my fellow researchers have our line back.
>
> I am probably grasping at straws here, but my extended family has been
trying to get beyond our brick wall for decades. We are stuck at a Benjamin
SPRINGER d.c1803. The only thing we know about him is the guardianship
papers dated 1803 for his son Samuel Robinson SPRINGER b.1789. From Samuel
on down we have volumns. NJ has no early census records, they were
destroyed. We know of no siblings for our Samuel. We have no clues as to
who his mother might have been. We have tax records, land records, wills.
No will has ever been found for a Ben the right age with a son Samuel, or
even dying at the right time frame, no land records that can be found that
prove a Ben had a son Samuel. Tax records indicate there were several Bens
in NJ and none can be pointed at and said of 'that's him'. We can use
'elimination' but when we do, we end up with no one.

> Likewise, the results for #2 represent another brick wall for me, stuck at
around the middle 1700s. #2 is strongly suspected as being the same line
as my mother's SPRINGER line. I am waiting for someone who I know is more
closely related to my mother to agree to join up but meanwhile, I'm waiting
anxiously for the rest of #2's markers to come up.
>
> Prior to the testing, I knew of no possible connection between my line and
#3. They have this line back to the mid 1700s. #5's line goes back to the
late 1600s, VERY early 1700s and this is the line my family has long
suspected of being connected to. Just no paper trail that we or anyone else
has been able to find.

> I realize it's an extremely small group of participants so far, but it's
twice as big as when I submitted my dad's test. Gee, it only took a year
and a half to get the other three matches to sign up :) Thank you for
listenting to my ranting.
