My husband is John Stewart.

His family has diaries that offer insight into past history for the family.

We have notes that refer to Alexander Stewart, descendant ofthe Duke of Albany, came from Appin in the year 1700.

We have Charles Stewart c1775 Appin m Margaret McDonald. Margaret was the dau of John MacDonald son of Donald McDonald of Glencoe.

This family group went from Appin to North Uist to Nova Scotia.

My husband did the DNA from Ancestry. Can we compare with the Appin Stewarts? Where can we find the info?

Help! Ann

Hello Ann,
I had my DNA done at FTDNA and it grouped me as Ancient Stewarts: Descended from High Stewards of Scotland Probably descended from Sir John of Bonkyl. I manually entered my 67 marker results on this site a few months ago. I will need to update soon after my 68 to 111 marker test is complete(by the end of next month). My descendants went from Scotland to Antrim to Connecticut in 1719. I would like to compare my results with your husband.
George

Hi George:
I believe I have attached the John Stewart b1945 attachment. If this does not work, I could send it to your e-mail.

Thank you, Ann

Hi Ann,
Thanks for the attachment. I will attach mine to this message. Keep in mind that I manually entered my data, which was taking from my FTDNA results and that I still have some results that should be in by the end of the month. If you would like to see my actual results from FTDNA send me a private message though ancestry with your email address and I'll send you a copy that way along with a link to my results so that you can compare with other results as well.

As far as my data vs your husbands, FTDNA does not have a marker test for three of the markers on your results sheet, they are; DYS19b, DYS464e & DYS464f. I am still waiting results for the other three on results sheet; DYS456, GGAAT1b07 & YGata-A10. I compared your husbands results with mine and came up with a Generic Distance of 14. The biggest distance was 5 for DYS442, I have a 12 there while your husband had a 17. FTDNA has a Stewart/Stuart project and a Stewart/Stuart(Royal) project, I looked at this marker value in both projects and found that the lo/hi marker numbers in the Stewart project was 10/14 and in the Stewart(Royal) project they were 12/13. I don't know what this means, I just wanted to point that out to you as it may be a typo or nothing at all. This is getting kinda long, so I'll stop for now. Take care and thanks again. George

Hi George:

Thanks, I received the attachment and I will compare to mine. My husbands line was living in North Uist. They were boat builders and Sea Captains of full rigged sailing ships that traveled the world. Also mentioned in diaries were pirates and hiwaymen. They weren't mentioned in the diaries as they apparently were dark sheep. This line of Stewart's married Macdonalds & Mcleods so the dark sheep could have been there. Such an interesting and juicy bit of research to be had. So, I found these Stewarts in North Uist in the 1800's. They emigrated to Nova Scotia in 1834. From there they scattered. We live in California. My e-mail: annstewart@wildblue.net. I see you have a tree on Ancestry, so do I. I will send you an invite if you wish. Ann
