    I just ordered your book and want to thank you from your efforts. I took the Ancestry.com DNA test and uploaded it to FamilyTreeDNA but have not gotten a great deal of satisfaction. Ancestry says that I am 40 percent UK, 29 percent Irish, 14 percent Western Europe and 17 percent Trace regions. I tested at the 37 marker level but only received 13 exact matches at 12 markers and none at 24 and 37. None of the matches were Moores or variations. I also joined the Moore Worldwide Project but I am in the last group which are the Moores with 0 matches within their whole database. I hope that your book can fill in some of the gaps so that I might have a sense of connection.

      Terry, Thanks for your order – I have issued you a $4.00 refund as I am running a free domestic shipping special for the first 25 new orders.

      My thoughts on your search for connectedness: the 69% British Isles roots fit well with the Mure story, which features a tribe that is Irish, Scottish and Cornish. The Damnonians are purely Celtic, although not Gaelic. They were in the Isles before the Gaels arrived. In fact, based upon some new genetic studies, they may turn out to be an indigenous tribe. Like you, I have found it easy to get the 12-marker matches, and little or no connections at the 24 and 37 marker levels. Once you read the book, feel fre to contact me with any questions you may have. Regards, Robert

    Robert, a very big thank you, for your publishing this book. This has been a great help and thoroughly interesting read. My ancestors were from the John Moor lineage, who were part of the MacDonald/MacIain Clan of Glencoe per 20th century records. John Moor(1) was one of the clan members who lost their life in the Glencoe Massacre. The remaining family removed to Antrim, Ireland and settled in the U.S.
