Krause Klan Reunion #1
This page will show an online of the notes and presentation that were given at the Krause Klan Reunion at Iola, WI, Aug. 25-26, 2007. The online presentation will be a bit more limited then the handout notes presented at the reunion as some of the pages were prepared using features found on the link so that larger and more informative info. was obtainable.
Welcome to the Krause Klan Reunion #1 web. If you are not sure how a web works then you are invited to a short explanation of Webs
The outline for the presentation and brief explanations that are
shown below will be in the handout notes since this page is part of the notes.
Introduction: Page: 6
a) Y-Chromosome DNA (passed from
father to son) This means that all males carry this info.
DNA Genealogy and how it can help to find info!: Pages: no pages
Arnie Krause Genealogy Home Page: Pages: 7-11
The main webpage that is used for all of my Krause genealogy research and information
Topic on DNA Genealogy: Pages: 12-18
One of the topics called "DNA based genealogy research" found from my main webpage. This discusses DNA genealogy; many links and if you try to go to all of them you will just be overwhelmed. Read only what you feel is at your level as you can always go to the page and read what has been updated or added.
Our Deep Ancestral Origins: Pages: 19-31
This is a
background paper by Todd Johnson who is also an I1b Haplogroup and much of
the info may be enlightening to you about what Todd reports.
Where our ancestors were from: Pages: 32-34
NOTE:: The Y-Search links are no longer available so the pages from the KKR#1 book are being used:
Area in Europe where our Branch-1 Krause Klan are from. The balloons show the towns where the different lines originated according to their earliest known ancestor.
A Y-Search map showing the area of the World where the I2a(old numbering was I1b) haplogroup are from. The small red balloons are shown for everyone in the Y-Search database that has a I2a Haplogroup. I2a Haplomap You will have to use the + sign to zoom in to the area that you wish to examine more closely. The red balloons shown just to the left and slightly below Gdansk, Poland are for the members of our group. If you click on one of the balloons then a small window will open with info on the line tested. When the UserID is shown then if you click on that link, you are taken to the full info for those test data. My data is for A7YJ6
Test, Results, and Possible Divergence: Pages: 35-39
The next section on the "Analysis of Y-DNA and mtDNA Results" attempts to show the test results in many different ways so that a person can obtain some idea of how the data can be analyzed as explained in the next section.
Analysis of results. Probabilities of Most Common Ancestor(MCA): Pages: 40-44
This section gives further information on the details of the data, and how it was analyzed and the subsequent results.
Trying to solve the puzzle: Pages: 45-50
This section is based on the methodology that has been used to either prove of disprove that Herman and John from Branch-1A were the brother of William Frederick Krause of Branch-1G previously called Branch-20.
What can we do to help fill in more missing data?:
Try to find other members from the different branches that can be used to verify that the data at the present time is correct and try to determine when mutations might have occurred. In my case, it was not until I had the results from my uncle Albert Krause's line, that it was possible to determine that my value of 21 for DYS# 570 had occurred with either my father or myself.
Try to encourage other males with the surname of Krause to have a Y-Chromosome DNA test done to show what group they are from. A 12-Marker test is sufficient to determine this but a full 37-Marker is required to determine the connections to a surname line. If only the 12-marker results are used then you could have a perfect match with many persons with even a different surname as the time frame of the common ancestor is several hundred to thousands of years ago.
This will also help Jane to maybe locate the half-brothers of her immigrant ancestor and help to find the Frederick Krause who was her ancestor. This is a hit and miss situation but may give better results then trying to find any records in Germany/Poland on her ancestors as it is like trying to look for a needle in a haystack when you don't know where the haystack is located. Even if you found some data that was for a Frederick Krause and a Henrietta Unknown, you would not know if it was the correct family.
These will be reported on after the reunion.
New info on received 27 July 2007 is for the link that gives more information on the different Haplogroups and how they fit together. This is a very indepth report and is up-to-date as of 2007. Y-DNA Haplogroup Tree 2007. Indepth information on any of the Haplogroups is available by clicking on the box where the Haplogroup designation is shown. An example of where the info from this report may be important is the statement the Haplogroup R is thought to have started approx. 3000 BC while Haplogroup I which our Krause line is descended from. A quote for the I Haplogroup is:
"Y-DNA haplogroup I is a European haplogroup, representing nearly one-fifth of the population. It is almost non-existent outside of Europe, suggesting that it arose in Europe. Estimates of the age of haplogroup I suggest that it arose prior to the last Glacial Maximum. Probably, it was confined to the refuge in the Balkans during the last Ice Age, and then spread northward during the recolonization of northern Europe following the retreat of the glaciers."
A quote for the R Haplogroup is:
" Y-DNA haplogroup R is mainly represented in two lineages. Lineage R1a is thought to have originated in the Eurasian Steppes north of the Black and Caspian Seas. It is associated with the Kurgan culture, known for the domestication of the horse (approximately 3000 B.C.E.). This lineage is currently found in central and western Asia, India, and in Slavic populations of Eastern Europe. A well-known individual of the R1a lineage is Somerled founder of Clan Donald. Lineage R1b originated prior to the end of the last ice age where it was concentrated in refugia in southern Europe and Iberia and is the most common in European populations. It is especially common in the west of Ireland where it approaches 100% of the population. This haplogroup contains the Atlantic modal STR haplotype."
Ken Nordvedt has a new SNP tree diagram called UnitedFounders Tree. This gives a time scale shown with the Haplogroups I and R together with several others.
A visit to the FTDNA mainpage may give you further information that may help to understand how DNA testing can help to peek thought the "Brick Walls" that may be present in searching your roots. Relative pricing costs are shown for other testing facilities. A Surname Video is also available and my be of use to explain some of the terminology and also what some families have found. Remember, this is also an advertisement for FTDNA so don't be over-awed. The video is in 4 parts and special links are for Dial-up or Cable/DSL, make sure you use the proper one for your system. The video is in four parts(each is 6-7 min.). The links shown below are only for Cable/DSL:
