Hello Major,

We are the Gideon Bowles line of 1591. Below, you'll see our lineage
on my Dad's side of the family. (my father was CNJ the 3rd) Annie
Bowles is my g grandma. I'm very interested in talking with someone
about the J2b Haplogroup. I've been reading online and am excited to
think that I have Jewish dna! I am a Christian and have also been
doing Messianic studies for about 25 yrs. What's your thoughts on
all this. Where do you and I join as relatives by my line below?
Thank You, Helene
A letter to my cousins. There are 5 of us females doing our lineage.
Bowles DNA study: We are most closely linked to Group 1. Our link
that we can identify with David and Julia is group N6065
