    Lightbulb Map of Surname Matches

    This may be of little interest to anyone but me, but I have created a Google map of my closest y-dna STR matches who share my surname or a variant of it here.

    I think I have been blessed with a pretty fair number of good same-surname matches in the years since 2006, when I got my first 37-marker y-dna results from FTDNA.

    The "Holy Grail" of my genealogical quest is to find out who my y-dna immigrant ancestor was and where he came from. I am hoping all of these puzzle pieces will provide leads that can be tracked down and used to extend my y-dna pedigree back in time.

    One of the 37-marker matches on my map (36/37) has just ordered an upgrade to 67 markers. I am happy about that. I hope the match holds up.

    Through my maternal Grandfather's mother, I can trace back to a Dorcas Stephens born in mid 1700's Virginia to a John Stephens. This John was born to a Richard Steevens/Stevens who was born in 1690 in Middlesex, Virginia. They ultimately trace their ancestry to a Robert Stephens of Stepney, England. Of course this tree is mostly conjecture and is filled with holes.

    Here's the ancestry paper trail.. I don't know if this is of any help to you, but its better to leave no stone un-turned.

    I appreciate the info. We cannot make a connection to that line yet, but who knows what will turn up?

    You're welcome. I did a quick search for your mdka and most, if not all of the available info had you're name attached! That Robert Stephens seems to have settled in Maryland. Which is a good launch point for your current matches. Which seem to be more North east, so if I had to give a guess as to where they sprung from, that would be it. Could be wrong though, but I have a feeling about this for you!

    There are some Isaacs who settled just up the road from me in the early 1800's, that I have no connection to. They were originally from Maryland and it seems a lot of the families that settled there took a path through the places where you're getting matches from. I ended up tracing them my "cousins" to East Anglia and they belonged to haplo I1. This stuff never gets old!

    That match, Stevens, kit 326490, went to 64/67 last night or early this morning. He matches another of my matches (surname Stephens) 65/67. There are five of us involved in chipping in to pay for an upgrade to 111 markers, so that is in the works (the donating, that is - we haven't ordered the upgrade yet).

    I've been doing some digging into Fayette County, Pennsylvania, where my new match's mdka was born in 1787. I don't have anything firm yet, but a possible "person of interest" is Evan Stephens (or Evan ap Stephen), who was born in Cardiff, Wales, in 1692 and immigrated to North America in 1715. He lived and died in Bucks County, PA, but some of his sons went to Fayette County. It's not much yet, but it's better than nothing!

    Those of us Stevens/Stephens who are close matches have pooled our resources and ordered an upgrade to 111 markers for kit 326490. It was way less painful than just one of us springing for the whole thing.

    All but one panel of his 111-marker upgrade has come in, and he has picked up only one more unit of genetic distance from me. If that holds up, and it should, we'll be a 107/111 match, which is not bad. That will make kit 326490 one of two 107/111 matches I have, and those are my two closest 111-marker matches, one with the surname Stevens, spelled as my surname is spelled, and one with the surname Stephens.

    Kit 326490's closest match at 67 was my Stephens match, 65/67, but he has picked up two more units of genetic distance on him, so, if everything stays the same, we three will all be four off each other at 111 markers and will be each other's closest matches.

    Kit 326490 lacks Panel 5, markers 76-85, for his upgrade to be complete. Hope those come in soon!

    Kit 326490 got the last panel of his 111-marker upgrade late yesterday or early this morning. We are now a 107/111 match. That makes three of us who are each other's mutual, closest matches at 107/111: two with the surname Stevens (326490 and I), and one with the surname Stephens. We have one more Stevens one more away at 106/111.
