"Nick Donofrio joined IBM in 1967 and spent 41 years at the company before his retirement in October 2008. He spent the early part of his career in integrated circuit and chip development as a designer of logic and memory chips, and held numerous technical management positions before leading several of IBM’s product divisions—eventually becoming executive vice president of innovation and technology. Donofrio’s technical and management experience prepared him to oversee IBM’s efforts in the Genographic Project, which named him to the project’s Advisory Board. He is the holder of seven technology patents, and is a member of numerous technical and science honor societies. In 2002, Donofrio was recognized by Europe's Institution of Electrical Engineers with the Mensforth International Gold Medal for outstanding contributions to the advancement of manufacturing engineering. In 2008, IBM Chairman Sam Palmisano elected Donofrio IBM Fellow, the company's highest technical honor."

The Rothschilds - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothschild_family

Mayer Amschel Rothschild (23 February 1744 – 19 September 1812) was a German banker and the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty, which is believed to have become the wealthiest family in human history. Referred to as the "founding father of international finance," Rothschild was ranked seventh on the Forbes magazine list of "The Twenty Most Influential Businessmen of All Time" in 2005.

The Rothschild family /ˈrɒθs.tʃaɪld/, also known as the Rothschilds, is a family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who established his banking business in the 1760s, in the Free City of Frankfurt. Rothschild established an international banking dynasty through his five sons, that came even to surpass the most powerful families of the era such as the Barings and the Berenbergs. Five lines of the Austrian branch of the family have been elevated to Austrian nobility, being given five hereditary titles of Barons of the Habsburg Empire by Emperor Francis II in 1816. Another line, of the British branch of the family, was elevated to British nobility at the request of Queen Victoria, being given the two hereditary titles of Baronet (1847) and Baron (1885).

John J. Curtin - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Curtin

John Joseph Curtin (8 January 1885 – 5 July 1945) was an Australian politician who was the 14th Prime Minister of Australia from 1941 to 1945 and the Leader of the Labor Party from 1935 to 1945. Having first formed a minority government in 1941, Curtin went on to lead Labor to its greatest ever election victory in 1943, winning two thirds of seats in the House of Representatives and over 58% of the two-party preferred vote. Curtin successfully led Australia through the period when the nation was directly threatened by the Japanese advance in World War II, and is today widely regarded as one of the country's greatest ever Prime Ministers. With the end of the war in sight, Curtin died in office on 5 July 1945 and was succeeded briefly by Frank Forde and then by Ben Chifley

"Thus we find that our two famous political Curtin/MacCurtain men are from two different haplogroups. Thomas MacCurtain, Lord Mayor of Cork, was in the R1b1 group, while John Curtin, Prime Minister of Australia, was from a Feale Valley J2 group."

Dr. Jagdish Kumar Saluja (born January 14th, 1934 in Abdulapur, Jhelum Province, during the British Raj), known simply as Dr. ‘Jack’ Saluja, is one of the earliest members of the Saluja family to leave India’s shores and settle abroad. After completing his B.Sc. in Physics from St. Xavier College of Bombay, Dr. Saluja left for London by the boat named ‘Stratheden’ on December 18, 1955. From London he voyaged to New York on the ‘Queen Mary’ to arrive in the United States on January14, 1956. Dr. Saluja has degrees from the University of Michigan in Mathematics and Nuclear Engineering, as well as a PHD in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Florida in 1966. He has a variety of career achievements including being on the design team of the Juggernaut Research Nuclear Reactor at Argonne National Laboratory, designing the controls for the NERVA nuclear rocket engine during the Nixon administration, and being the Founder and President of Viking Systems International, a high-tech multi-disciplinary consulting firm addressing energy and engineering needs on a truly global basis (from 1977-1997).

"In fact, DNA Analysis suggests that Saluja’s belong to the DNA Haplogroup J2b, which has its origin in Greece. J2b (M12, M314, M221, M102), and is mainly found in the Balkans, Greece, Italy, and India (possibly from Neolithic Greeks)*****J2b1 (M205) - formerly J2b1b."

The I-Team has an update tonight at 5 on the story about a mystery man named Paul Fronczak, who recently discovered through a DNA test that he is NOT the person he thought he was. It started with the sensational kidnapping of a one-day old baby back in 1964 and a heart-breaking "reunion" two years later. Our stories about Fronczak's efforts to find his true identity have generated media interest all over the world. Now, some new developments. We have some additional leads based on new DNA tests, and some surprising news about someone else who has joined the investigation.

The FBI's Chicago bureau has announced it is reopening their investigation into the Fronczak case after locating significant information dating to the baby's original kidnapping from a Chicago hospital. "It was deemed appropriate to take a fresh look at the evidence that we have and possibly re-interview sources that are still around," FBI spokesperson Joan Hyde told the Chicago Tribune. Paul Fronczak, today a grown Nevada man who was found abandoned as a baby at a Newark store, may still not know where he came from but he does feel closer to knowing. After taking a DNA test earlier this year revealing that he is not his Fronczaks' biological son he's uncovered a few additional clues of his own with the help of Ancestry.com, the world's largest genealogy company.

Roman Nobility

Bruttius, Bretius, Bretz.

"Sometime prior to that a Bretz ancestor must have come into Germany from the south, from Italy or Greece. Some researchers have suggested a family connection to Fabius Bretius, a Roman General, who came from the districts of Capua and Taranto in southern Italy to the town Trier, Germany around 224. Whether this connection is genuine or not, and it is impossible to know for sure, perhaps Roman conquests did bring Bretz DNA north 1,800 years ago as they did with so many other things. For some additional thoughts on the possible Latin origins of the family, also read the Genealogia Bretius."
Bretz Family, Haplogroup J2.
http://www.bretz.ca/GenWeb/html/dna/Y-bretz/

"Although the Bretz surname is clearly Germanic in its modern form, there are clues that its origin might extend back to antiquity. References from history, literature, and surname research have offered possible connections to a beginning in Italia. What is most exciting about these ideas are that they are now supported by the Bretz Y-DNA testing, which exposes a Mediterranean nature for the family....... And what of the proper name Bretius, is there anything to be learned of it? The account of Fabius Bretius indicates that he came from the south of Italy near Capua, where there was in fact a Roman family clan of the Imperial period which had a very similar name. The clan was called Bruttius, also spelled Brittius, Brettius, etc. (Greek: Βρύττιος), and it was particularly widespread in the south, including around Capua. Given the name's similarity to Bretius or Britius, and it's location, it is certainly concievable that Fabius could have belonged to this clan. The timing is also correct as no records of the Roman clan name are found prior to the Imperial period, and individuals of this name date between 100-300, the time of Fabius in Trier."

Basarab Dynasty, (Vlad III The Impaler). Unconfirmed!

"Vlad III The Impaler, also known as Dracula, descended from the dynasty of Basarab, the first rulers of independent Wallachia, in present Romania. Whether this dynasty is of Cuman (an admixed Turkic people that reached Wallachia from the East in the 11th century) or of local Romanian (Vlach) origin is debated among historians. Earlier studies have demonstrated the value of investigating the Y chromosome of men bearing a historical name, in order to identify their genetic origin. ...... The Basarab sample clusters into 11 lineages (Table 2), with six main lineages comprising 82.8% of the samples. Some lineages such as J-M241 and E-V13 are over-represented in the Basarab compared to the general Romanians."

A Ligurian Columbus would have carried the Colombo surname, whereas he would have been called Colom if he were Catalan. ...In order to test whether it would be possible to discriminate between a Ligurian or a Catalan origin were Columbus' Y-chromosome haplotype to be retrieved, we genotyped 17 Y-chromosome STRs in 238 Spanish (from Catalonia, Valencia, and the Balearic Islands) and French Colom men, and 114 North Italian Colombo (from Liguria, Lombardy, and Piedmont)."

Hugh Montgomery, 1st Earl of Erlington (Confirmed)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Montgomerie,_1st_Earl_of_Eglinton

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_of_Eglinton

"As identified in the Montgomery DNA Project records Sven Jacob Montgomery is in the J2 haplotype, and he is one of fifteen living Montgomerys who possess exactly matching DYS/STR counts at the 67 DYS analysis level and two at the 37 DYS analysis level. In addition there are twenty three Montgomerys in the Montgomery DNA Project records that differ from the exact matching seventeen in only one DYS (-1) at the 37 or 67 DYS analysis level. Sven’s DNA matching the other Montgomerys is considered to be unquestionable evidence that he is a genetic Montgomery family descendant. The identification of Sven Jacob’s ancestors that is recorded in this research description has been acquired from numerous sources including older Montgomery family histories and official records acquired from the Swedish House of Nobility. Although there are a couple of contradictions between the sources, the composite identification of each of Sven Jacob’s ancestors presented herein is accurate and complete within the limits of the sources. The ancestry begins with Hugh Montgomery, the 1st Earl of Eglinton, and progresses through his son the 1st Neil Montgomery of Lainshaw, his son the 2nd Neil of Lainshaw, and later to the Montgomery who emigrated to Sweden and his descendants. The identification of Sven Jacob’s ancestors presented herein establishes a coherent and logical sequence of descendants whose birth years and residence locations are reasonable in time and location. It is therefore the position of the MBWG that Sven Jacob's ancestry has been validated by the Group's independent research activities. Through genetic science it is known that the male DNA is passed unchanged from father to son. Based on this fact it is therefore reasonable to conclude that Sven Jacob inherited his DNA, unchanged, through each of the identified male Montgomerys in his ancestry. It is also reasonable to conclude that as the first Montgomery in Sven Jacob’s identified ancestry, the 1st Earl's DNA would be an exact match to Sven Jacob's DNA, including the haplotype and DYS/STR counts. Based on the evidence presented herein, it is the unanimous conclusion of the MBWG members that Sven Jacob Montgomery is a descendant of Hugh Montgomery, the 1st Earl of Eglinton."

"The family held the castle of St. Foy de Montgomery, just south of Lisieux [Liseaux], in France. The village still exists and it was along a road near here that Field Marshall Erwin Rommel was strafed and badly injured by Allied fighters in WWII. Falaise, the birthplace of Duke William, was just to the west. One legend claims that Gomeric was a Viking, the son of Ingvar Ragnarson, the King of East Anglis and Northumberland. Gomeric settled in the Calvados area of Normandy and fortified a hill which gave the family its name - Mons Gomerici. Another part of the family, seeking deeper roots, claimed the name could be traced back to a Roman commander called Gomericus. Yet another, below, made the earliest members of the family part of the indigenous Frankish nobility of Normandy."

"A noble Roman was the root
from which Montgomeries came

"The James–Younger Gang was a notable 19th-century gang of American outlaws that included Jesse James. The gang was centered in the state of Missouri, the home of most of the members. Membership fluctuated from robbery to robbery, as the outlaws' raids were usually separated by many months. At various times, it included the Younger brothers (Cole, Jim, John, and Bob), the James brothers (the notorious Jesse James and his brother Frank), John Jarrett (married to Cole's sister Josie), Arthur McCoy, George Shepard, Oliver Shepard, William McDaniel, Tom McDaniel, Clell Miller, Charlie Pitts (born Samuel A. Wells),[1] and Bill Chadwell (alias Bill Stiles). Contrary to frequent reports, the James brothers and Younger brothers were not related by blood. The James–Younger Gang had its origins in a group of Confederate bushwhackers who fought in the bitter partisan fighting that wracked the state of Missouri during the American Civil War. After the war, the men fought on, though it did not truly become the "James–Younger Gang" until 1868 at the earliest, when the authorities first named Cole Younger, John Jarrett, Arthur McCoy, George Shepard and Oliver Shepard as suspects in the robbery of the Nimrod Long bank in Russellville, Kentucky."

He knows how to make headlines. Uses popular topics such as sexuality and how to improve things. According to the BMJ, almost half of his claims are either unsubstantiated or just plain wrong.

RHAS,


Thanks for mentioning my family. I'm greatly appreciative. Someone else from my family you can mention is Henry Perrin. He is the founder of Perrin Flordia. You can find him on Wikipedia.

If anyone else is interested in the origin of the Perrin family you can reference a book Titled:


Dictionary of the nobility, containing the genealogies, history and chronology of the noble families of France, the explanation of their arms, and the state of the great lands of the kingdom. , Historical, of the sovereign houses of Europe, and a record of foreign families, the oldest, the noblest, and the most illustrious. It's written in French.


PERRIN FAMILY


ARMS: PERRIN DE PARIS


This ancient family, issuing from a noble race, was es-
tablished in Castre, Languedoc, and thence divided into four
substantial branches. It had its origin in the family of de la
Baulme from Saint Amour, Seigneur de la Baulme of Cedron,
in Bresse, who was living in 1086. The line following this
family arose to prominence in Deodat de Perrin, living in
1 1 16. From this eldest branch to the 17th degree, there
arose the line of LaBessierre in the person of Michel de Perrin,
chevalier, under the name of Chevalier de la Bessierre. He
served 53 years as lieutenant and colonel, dying at Villefranche
de Constant, in the service of the king. This branch furnished
many distinguished officers and Chevaliers of the Order of
St. Louis, and had numerous representatives in the Crusades
to the Holy Land. “Transplanted and seated in various
provinces of France,” “the Perrin de Paris Coat Armorial is
in conformity with those borne at the early period ; the decor-
ations are of The Order of Saint Louis, and those of the Cru-
sades and Pilgrimages. This ancient nobility, which, at all
times was in the service of the State and King, made alliances
among the best houses of nobility.” “Deeply rooted in the
hearts of most of us, there lives an interest in the past and a
desire to place oneself in some relation to the generations that
have preceded us.”

"Today, we have a new contender for the title courtesy of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the Black Swan author, NYU professor, and all-around public intellectual. Taleb’s new book, Antifragile, has been accompanied by a rash of interviews that have, as a side benefit, brought certain details about Taleb’s personal life to light. We’ve learned, for example, that Taleb “avoids fruit that does not have an ancient Greek or Hebrew name and drinks no liquid that has not been in existence for at least 1,000 years.”

Cherokee Chief Bowl. (J2-M172 Confirmed!)


"I was extremely pleased to get correspondence from the descendants of Col. John Bowles, the founder of the Texas Band of the Cherokee who died at the head of a war party, shot in the back by a white man, near Redlands, Texas, in 1839. We located two elderly brothers in Oklahoma who were great-great-great grandsons of the legendary chief. To everyones surprise Bowles DNA came back J2, the haplogroup that contains the Cohen modal lineage, with a two-step mutation matching a person identified as Ashkenazi from the Ukraine. How could this be? Bowles was similar to several other Cherokee chiefs in having been a known half breed. His father was a Scots trader and his mother a full-blood Cherokee woman. When his father was killed and robbed by two North Carolinians in 1768, the son was only 12 years old, but within the next two years the fair-complexioned, auburn haired boy had killed both ! his fathers slayers. After that, he became a Chickamauga warrior. The Bowl (in Cherokee, Duwali) was a white chief at the same time as The Glass (in actuality, Thomas Glass of North Carolina) and Black Fox, my ancestor (a Scotsman descended from Blacks and Foxes), were chiefs of the Cherokee Nation."

"The Chickamauga Cherokee were a group that separated from the greater body of the Cherokee tribes during the American Revolution."
Wikipedia - Chickamauga Cherokee
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chickamauga_Cherokee


"The Bowl (also Chief Bowles); (Cherokee: Di'wali) (~1765 – July 16, 1839) was one of the leaders of the Chickamauga Cherokee during the Cherokee–American wars, served as a Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation–West, and was a leader of the Texas Cherokees (Tshalagiyi nvdagi). Di'wali was born around 1765 in Little Hiwassee, a Cherokee town in current-day North Carolina. His mother was Cherokee, and his father was a Scottish trader. Emmet Starr, an early historian of the Cherokee, describes Bowles as "being decidedly Gaelic in appearance, having light eyes, red hair, and somewhat freckled. ... On the morning of July 16, though severely outnumbered, Di'wali made every effort to win. Di'wali "exhorted the Indians to fight bravely. During the last battle he could be heard repeatedly encouraging them, and more than once urging them to charge." But eventually, with his troops depleted of ammunition, Di'wali ordered retreat, though he remained. Sitting on his horse, wearing a military hat and sword given to him by Sam Houston, Di'wali faced the advancing Texans. The Texan forces shot his horse and then injured the chief, shooting him in the thigh and the back. Unable to walk but raising himself to a sitting position on the ground, Di'wali was singing a war song when Capt. Robert W. Smith approached Di'wali and shot him in the head. Smith then took the sword from D'wali's body and swaths of skin from his arm as souvenir. Of Di'wali, John H. Reagan recalls, "I had witnessed his dignity and manliness in council, his devotion to his tribe in sustaining their decision for war against his judgement, and his courage in battle." As he had requested, Di'wali was left on the battlefield according to tradition. A historical marker now stands at the site of Chief Di'wali 's death. A funeral for Di'wali was held by the descendants of the tribe in 1995, on the 156 anniversary of his death."

Maciamo would you please add the native Chief, for the rest guys we should look into the following, who could be J2, I have seen people with similar names being J2in Projects:

Quentin Tarantino- J2b(not sure 1 or 2) - Have seen the family name Tarantino for a tested guy and he was from the South of Italy just like Quentin's male line :)
Joe Perry- guy with family name Pereira from Madeira ( where his Dad is from) is J2a-M76


For the rest my GrandPa has matches who are Americans and one has family name Poe(so maybe Edgar Allan) and the other one Gosling ( so maybe Ryan)

It is a long shot, but this is how we find the Y Haplogroups of the Famous :)

I only add people who are sufficiently famous. One way to gauge this is the number of translations of their Wikipedia page. Famous individuals with a picture have at least a Wikipedia page in 10 languages (but most of the time over 50 languages). I sometimes add people with less translations under the minor celebrities if I judge that their contribution to history or modern society is remarkable enough. Cherokee Chief Bowl does not qualify.

OK I see :)

But we should really investigate the cases of Joe Perry from Aerosmith, Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Allan Poe and Ryan Gosling :) All 4 are extremely famous and would be on the page with a picture and all :)

Nice thread, i wish more famous people would test more and publish their results, it would advertise genetics among regular population even more.

French wikipedia page (https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_des_haplogroupes_des_personnes_historiquemen t_connueslists) lists these 4 people as belonging to J2.
Anybody know the source? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180820/cde854e6415725caf1f28715c78f94b0.jpg

In the Eupedia article about the J-2 Haplogroup, it is mentioned that Sir John Field (~1520-1586), the astronomer, is in the subclade J2b-Z8429. John Field's haplogroup designation is a subject of question within the Field Project, and I am wondering what the basis for the subclade designation is here.

The Lubomirski Family in Poland belong to J2b L283, specifically PH1602 branch. Alexi and his dad Ladislas Lubomirski are close matches of mine. 5/67 markers. My paternal roots are in the Beskid Mountains in southern Poland.

I would never have guessed the son is Polish. The father, yes, but not the son. He looks like some of the men in my father's northern Italian family, or like Luke Perry in his prime. Handsome guy.

The Kovacs, on the other hand, look very Slavic to me.

thats because autosomal dna much more important than y haplogroups
in determine the phenotype :)
if hernan crespo and robert pires are indeed j2 that is very cool for j2 people :good_job:

Agreed. I think Alexi’s mom is originally from Peru by way of Italy. His dad’s mother’s line is from Ireland. So I think he doesn’t have same amount of Slavic autosomal dna as my family. My Polish PH1602 line looks much more like the Kovacs. That’s my great grandfather in my profile pic. His line were Gorale (Mountain folk) from Carpathian Mountains. Never even heard of the name Lubomirski before (my family is all from Arizona, came to US on Polish side around 1900). I have a more distant match on PH1602 with a Ukrainian. There is a German book, written in only German, that claims the Lubomirski family descends from a Patrician family from Rome with name Aurelius of some sort. I don’t believe it because it’s an obscure entry in an old publication with no supporting evidence. Lubomirski family goes back to about 900s in Poland, but I can’t find any more historical accounts prior to that, so hopefully all this Y Dna testing will paint a clearer picture over time.

Your great-grandfather also has more of a Med look to him too. I remember seeing pictures of the Gorale people, and I don't think it's uncommon among them at all, although I'm sure you would know better.

Yes, "Alexi" has the look of some Southern Italian(Med)/Irish mixes that we have here, I think.

He was born in England (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England) to an English-Peruvian mother and a Polish-French father[4] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexi_Lubomirski#cite_note-:0-4) and raised between England and Botswana (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botswana) with his mother.

Ah well, that explains his looks. As I said, he didn't at all look Polish to me.
