Okay, I did figure out how to get the s27900 data off the site, are you a Williams?

Thanks I see your info.  I have my ancestry traced back to a Thomas Meek born about 1735 in Ahoghill Parish, County Antrim.  My Meek line was planted in Northern Ireland.  The family lore appears to have more significance now.  The progenitor was supposedly the Thomas Meek who in 1688 commanded the ship "John Trelawny" in the battle of the Armada.  The John Trelawney was a coaster provided by several towns in Cornwall so presumably Thomas was also from that region.  He was a friend of Drake who was from Devonshire and is on the crew list for Drake's voyage that circumvented the globe. Thomas supposedly got a land grant in Ireland for military service.  The records however show that a John Meek was in the plantations in 1609.  Perhaps John was a son of Thomas and the progenitor of this Meek dna group?  There are 25 of us tested to Meek dna group E by y-STR.  I am planning to get another Meek SNP test, that will probably wait until I can get a discount.  I live about a mile from the FTDNA office.
