I have been working on finding my family tree structure for a few years and have not been able to get past my 5th great grandfather, James Donnell d 1763 in Prince Edward County, Virginia. I have now pursued the YDNA route with some success. I know it is all based on accurate and precise information from DNA matches. I have taken the route of pursuing my Haplogroup and concentrating on individuals of exact match. There are many Daniel individuals with different Haplogroups but the only way to find ones correct family is following ones correct haplogroup. I started out with a Haplogroup of R-M269 and after in-depth testing I have acquired the results of R-JFS009. I have been a member of many different projects until I have found a home in project R1b-U198. I know the Daniel name has many allies such as Daniell, Donnell, Dannall, ODonnell, McDonnell, McDaniel, Donald, Donaldson, McDonald, and so on. I am following the YDNA not just the name that has changed many times. We have joined a few YDNA matches in this project and tried to carry on communication between participants in any effort of sharing information to build a family structure base on genetics and some other sources. We all know when we get to this point the information is very scarce and we need to base a lot of study on well founded collateral information. If anyone is interested in furthering their knowledge of their Daniel family you are invited to join the project and our little rat race but it may require more testing to participate. The project manager has helped me a great deal in explaining the in and outs of this haplogroup and its direction. I hope everyone will keep there eyes and minds open to the many possibilities that we have available to us in the joy of genealogy.
