Yes we are connected to Isaac Brock of Guernsey

Isaac Brock was my 4x Gt Grandfather William's cousin.

I have a large file of Brock info. Will happily look through if you send me some names. There are certainly some from Cambridgeshire and Nottinghamshire may be a link, they are the right side of the country :) :) :)

I'm are part of Brock DNA project in USA - it tests the Y-DAN that is unchanged and passeed down from male to male.

Are there any male descendants of Sir Issac Brock that could be tested?  Do you know any Brock's in the UK or Australia that would be interested in participating in the project?

My lot are not linked to Sir Isaac, as far as I know.

I might be interested in taking part in the project, if you can give more details.

Above are the links the project (Y-DNA results page and Home page).  It is a legitimate project.  The J2 Group found a Brack in Switzerland and confirmed matches with other J2 members in the USA.  So, they are actually not Brock but Brack. 

I'm in the R1b1b2 group.  This website does not show, but most of my matches are from Ireland, Scotland, Australia and England in general.

As far has I know no one in the project is connected to Sir Issac Brock.  From what I researched he has no living male ancestors.  And he himself did not have children.   

I'm trying to figure out where my Brock ancestor came from.  Rainey Wooten Brock was born in 1765 in Virginia.  That is as far back as I can trace it.  He married Nancy Rich the daughter of Nimrod Rich in Bedford County Va late 1790's.

You would think the name Rainey or Raney Wooten Brock is not common but I've had no luck so far.

Our project results are skewed to the J1 group because most of the participants are from one family in Kentucky.  We need more participants and oversees participants from Australia or UK would be great and could resolve many questions.  Pass this info on to any Brock's you know from around the world.

What do you think Meles?  Know any Brocks that would participate in the DNA project?

Yeah - I know the cost is high.  I'm just a participant and not in control of the project or pricing.  So, I'm not selling it.  But I just think it is a promising tool for tracing ancestory origins.  I already mention this in a PM I sent you, but I'll mention here again in case others read this post.

There is a contribution fund where memebers and non memebers can donate a contribution for particualr Brock lines.  I'm going to try and start a contribution fund for English Brocks in general.   If we can get enough donations maybe we can find a willing male Brock participant in England.

Thanks for your replies.
