MOODY's and HaploType I-M253-L-22-N (Norse)-I1d
Hi everyone...its been ages since I've posted here.
I'm sure most of you have seen the changes in our HaploTypes that Bob has posted on the Moody Surname Project page.If not here's the link so you can Scroll Down towards the bottom of this page (into the green area) and see our new designations as to what our HaploTypes are being called at present.
I wanted to add this posting in case anyone was wanting to see if they connected to any of the Norwegian or Scandinavian branches of the MOODY's/Moodie's/Mudie's because I believe the section labeled on the site
"I-M253-L-22Norse better defines who we are.When I say "we", I mean those of us Moody's who in that L-22/I1d category.For those who may be interested, go to the Link Above and note the "beige / tan" colored section towards the top of the page and then you can Scroll Down and click on the I-M253-L-22Norse link to see maps and read more about us.There are 2 of us Moody's that are known to have tested and matched the criteria described under this section and my father was one of them.
It would be great to see if there are any more of those
L-22 Norse / I1d Moody/Moodie/Mudie guys out there too.
The SNP test along with a simple 37 marker to a 67 marker ydna test will show you exactly if you carry those numbers or not. (in other words some of those number locations on your own personal Ydna chain will not show up unless you do the broader ydna test, i.e. 37 to 67 markers) I think the DYS511 location is only taken from the 67 part of a ydna test in other words, however if I remember correctly, the DYS462 is part of the 37 marker test...I could be wrong but its easy to find out.
Anyway, I hope the newly Updated info regarding our L-22 Norse section will give those seeking more details, a better description of this part of our Ydna.Its been most interesting reading and learning about it all.While its still not a conclusive done deal, I think its the best knowledge we have to date.
I have been out of the genealogy loop for so long now however, that things could have changed again that I am not aware of.I gave up searching for anything more on my own family due to lack of any documentation I could find regarding my 5th grt. grandfather's line (James Moody b.c1745-ish...possibly coming over from Scotland or Ireland).
There just wasn't anymore I could find out with any accuracy, so I took and am still taking an extended break until possibly something new pops up.
Take care everyone and hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving.
