Y-DNA Identification
2 November 2014 - 5:51:42pm

Earliest known Y-DNA ancestor is Johann Koenrad Löwenstein ‎‎‎‎(I400)‎‎‎‎
Birth: ±1700 -- Darmstadt, Germany
Death: 21 October 1783 -- Deventer, The Netherlands
There may be a connection with a Hans Löwenstein who married three times ‎‎‎(1615,1626 and 1628)‎‎‎ within the Evangelisch Lutheran Militär Gemeinde in Darmstadt.
Darmstadt: 49.8710°N, 8.6490°E

The Y chromosome results identify him as a member of haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1c2b1b ‎(ISOGG)‎; 
R1b1a2a1a1a4a* and Z381>Z301>L48>L47>Z159/Z160>S3251>S6915 ‎(FTDNA)‎
or R1b-Z159 for short!
For further information on R1b1a2a1a1a3b2a2 see Wikipedia ‎‎‎(‎‎‎#R-Z159 ‎(R-U106-4a2)‎

As the research and the debates continue, the age and origins of R1b1b2a1a1d change all the time.

It now seems that R1b-U106 arose in central Europe, perhaps around Austria, and migrated to northern Europe, especially up the Rhine River, which ends up in the Netherlands, not too far from Frisia.

A problem with these theories is that they look at modern populations, not the populations of Europe about 4,000 years ago, when R1b-U106 is likely to have been "born."

There is also the problem that what we do know about R1b-U106 and its distribution in the present population of Europe is the result of a self-selection process in the testing. Most of the tests are from Americans and most Americans are descended from British Isles ancestors and perhaps secondarily from German ancestors. What would we know about the distribution of R1b-U106 in modern European locations if more people with eastern European, French, Spanish and Italian ancestry were tested? Recent testing in the Netherlands and Flanders seems to support Central European origin of R1b-U106.

It would be of great interest if other members of the Löwensteyn ‎‎‎(Löwensteijn)‎‎‎ family had their YDNA tested as to confirm this haplo type! See Family Tree DNA < >
Family Names in the Achterhoek
26 December 2010 - 10:45:21pm

Before civil registrations in the Netherlands forced everyone at the beginning of the 19th century to have a specific surname, people in the Achterhoek were often named after the farm they lived on. You can see that in the surnames in this GedCom file, such as Oonk, Colste and te Kulve. Surnames might thus change every time a person moved and this creates difficulties in tracing Achterhoek ancestors. Furthermore, when a woman did not have brothers to take over the farm, she tried to find a husband to run the farm. He would usually change his name to the name of the farm, for instance, Wessel te Kulve ‎‎‎‎(alias Hinkamp)‎, Jan te Kulve ‎‎(alias Roerdinck‎)‎ and Geert Klouwers to Geert Geelink

Voordat de burgerlijke registraties in Nederland in het begin van de 19e eeuw iedereen dwongen een bepaalde achternaam te hebben, werden mensen in de Achterhoek vaak vernoemd naar de boerderij waar ze op woonden. Je kunt dat zien in de familienamen in dit genealogies bestand, zoals Oonk, Colste en te Kulve. Familienamen veranderen dus elke keer een persoon zich verplaatste en dit leidt tot problemen bij het opsporen van Achterhoekse voorouders. Bovendien, wanneer een vrouw geen broers had om de boerderij over te nemen, probeerde zij een man te vinden om de boerderij te beheren. Hij wijzigde dan meestal zijn naam in de naam van het boerderij, bijvoorbeeld, Wessel te Kulve ‎(alias Hinkamp)‎, Jan te Kulve ‎(alias Roerdinck)‎ en Geert Klouwers in Geert Geelink.
The name / De naam Löwensteyn
26 December 2010 - 10:32:31pm

In The Netherlands the contemporary name is Löwensteyn or Löwensteijn ‎(there are differences even in the same family)‎. The Canadian Löwensteyn became through naturalization Lowensteyn, while in New Zealand the spelling is Loewensteijn. To avoid confusion I have spelled the name as Löwensteyn, except for the first two generations Löwenstein.

In Nederland is de hedendaagse spelling Löwensteyn of Löwensteijn ‎(zelfs in hetzelfde gezin)‎. De Canadese Löwensteyn is bij naturalisatie veranderd in Lowensteyn. In Nieuw Zeeland spelt men de naam Loewensteijn. Om verwarring te voorkomen heb ik de naam gespeld als Löwensteyn, behalve voor de eerste twee generaties Löwenstein.
