This thread is dedicated to proposing new famous members of haplogroup R1b-U106 (S21) and its subclades.

So far, confirmed R1b-U106 carriers include:

- The House of Bourbon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Bourbon)

- The House of Wettin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Wettin)

- James K. Polk (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_K._Polk) (L48+ according to the Polk-Pollock DNA Project (http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/polk/results))

- Ulysses S. Grant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulysses_S._Grant) (U106 > L47 > Z159 according to the Grant DNA Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/GRANT/default.aspx?section=yresults))

- James D. Watson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_D._Watson)

- J. Craig Venter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Venter)


Here are a few prospective carriers that should be further investigated.


- Alexander Graham Bell : Scottish members of the Bell DNA Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/BellDNAProject/default.aspx?section=yresults) are almost all R1b-U106 (mostly L1/S26 subclade). They even grouped many participants under the title "Alexander Bell 1848", which could mean that this is the presumed lineage of the co-inventor of the telephone (although he was actually born in 1847). Unfortunately no information is provided.

Confirming the above info on US Grant. We are not done chasing the SNPs either, testing further via YSEQ at the moment. FGC8579 test pending.

Lol,Maciamo,are you serious?
I think currently are over 20-30 millions people bearing this HG.
If not more.
Not so hard to look in Netherlands,Austria,Switzerland,Germany,Great Britain,Belgium and other countries with significant Germanic ancestry individuals and search for their paternal HG.
I do not know but according to the maps of R1B-U106 most Dutch painters should have been of this HG.
Since I have seen most frequent paternal line in Netherlands is R1B-U106.
If you ask me,it seems people of this HG have a special attraction towards music,painting considering how many great composers and painters were from Netherlands,Germany,Switzerland and Austria summed.

If it's so easy, find some. :)

My similar I2 thread (http://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads/27655-Searching-for-famous-I2-carriers) is currently looking much better than this one. Surely R1b-U106 can beat I2?

Well a male descendant of Vincent van Gogh ,Lieuwe van Gogh could be tested,so we can see what Y DNA had Van Gogh.
I did not found any information related to this.
Lieuwe van Gogh.

Browsing through the German Surname Project at FTDNA; I stumbled on an apparent descendant of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Wolfgang_von_Goethe) (kit 286786) who belongs to R1b-U106>Z19>Z17>ZP91>S5970 (aka ZP159 (https://www.yfull.com/tree/R-ZP159/) on Yfull). The Z17 (aka ZP87 (https://www.yfull.com/tree/R-ZP87/)) branch appears to be mostly Scandinavian with a few Baltic members, and ZP159 only has one Bulgarian match on Yfull. So I am not sure how reliable that presumed descendant is.

There is also another supposed descendant of Friedrich Schiller (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Schiller) (kit 126989) who belongs to R1b-DF19.

I have just added Benjamin Franklin (https://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads/40011-Benjamin-Franklin-probably-belonged-to-haplogroup-R1b-U106).

It must be wrong indeed because Goehte's two grandsons Walther Wolfgang and Wolfgang Maximilian both died without issue:

That's why I haven't added Goethe to the list of famous Y-DNA yet. I am waiting for more confirmation. The tested person might nevertheless descend from a cousin of Goethe.

According to geni.com, actor Woody Harrelson is a descendant of the Dane Paul Harrelson who moved to Virginia in the 17th century. Several members of this family have been tested as R1b-U106 by FtDNA.

Actor Alec Baldwin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alec_Baldwin) is a descendant of John Baldwin (1635-1683) of Stonington, Connecticut, which places him in the R1b-U106 cluster in the Baldwin Surname Y-DNA Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Baldwin?iframe=ycolorized). Nevgen assign his haplotype to R1b-U106>Z381>Z156>BY12482 with 100% certainty.

Ernest Hemingway (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway), Nobel Prize of Literature in 1954, was a descendant of Ralph Hemingway (https://www.geni.com/people/Ralph-Hemingway-of-Roxbury/6000000007602711464) who emigrated from England to Boston, MA. As such he must have belonged to R1b-U106>Z381>Z301>L48>L47>Z159>FGC15335 according to the Hemingway Y-DNA Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/hemingway?iframe=yresults).
