    Post Searching for famous I1 individuals

    Inspired by sparkey's excellent thread Searching for famous I2 carriers, I thought it could be useful to start a thread to investigate another haplogroup that hasn't yielded so many famous individuals so far.

    Confirmed I1 carriers include:

    - Birger Jarl

    - Alexander Hamilton

    - Andrew Jackson (see here)

    - Leo Tolstoy

    - Calvin Coolidge

    - Warren Buffett

    - Jimmy Buffett

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

    - Winston Churchill : the Churchill DNA Project has mostly I1 individuals from England, including three who claim descent from a certain John Churchill (1620-1662) from Muston, Dorset. This site explains that an ancestor of Sir Winston Churchill also came from Muston, a William Churchill in the 1530s, and that it is possible that this William Churchill is the same ancestor for both lineages.

    - Oscar Wilde : the Wilde DNA Project only has two Irish members, both belonging to I1.

    "What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?", Winston Churchill.
