Genetic Genealogy:

Remember back in 1994 When Daniel Merrick Ph.D. presented this picture to the web for the first time and talked about tracing family linage by DNA? Well it is here.

We are now working on a DNA data base to prove the Line of Levi and Merari in the Merrick line. Click here for more information and to get registered to become a member of the test pool. 

WORLD DNA PROJECT: Line:  Levi > Merari>Merrick

Merrick: In the present family line we have the famous producer Daniel W. Merrick of Hollywood son of David Merrick, a clearly Jewish Origin. Then we have me, Daniel W. Merrick, Ph.D. son of Robert W. Merrick son of Walter T. Merrick. Did we come from the same line? Why is my name the exact same as David Merrick’s son? I was raised protestant but still believe myself to be a Jew. Is it an inner spiritual sense or is my research on the family line, which I love so well, the result of an ancient fraud?  

Manuscripts from Wales and England, the Vatican and Scotland, seem to be telling us a story which I have published in ‘The History and Genealogy of Merrick’ a compliment to the George Byron Merrick book from 1902. In addition I have one of the only surviving copies of Alice Meyrick’s Genealogy which recounts her work as an advisor to ‘Gone With The Wind’, the story of the southern Meyrick lines. 

My Merrick lines are from Mostyn MS. 117 which dates from the late thirteenth century. The earliest being Peniarth MS.45 of the second half of  the thirteenth century. It overlaps with both the Harleian MS. 3859 and the Jesus College MS.20 (998-1400) Now during the period of the Safrahime, 400BC to 70AD, many bought genealogy to claim kinship to Abraham. So are we really Jews as the manuscripts suggest? Did we come from Merari? (Num.26:57) Only our DNA will tell. To match, I need one Male and myself from the clear line of Israel Merrick from Md. and Tioga County PA. That will give us a base to compare with the Welsh lines and create a data base to grow from.If you want to know which side of the DNA tree for the Merrick line your leaf sprouted, please join.  

The R1b Claim and Merari - Cohnaim Genealogy References:


The dates of these documents go back to records that are still surviving from 55BC and have been reconstructed via

enhanced photographic methods by xray camera and other advanced techniques where ink on the pages may be recovered

even after it has long since faded.. Biblical scrolls dating back to 300 BCE which have an earlier date of historical records,

which date to 100 CE to 300 CE such as the Dead Sea Scrolls has proven the succession of the records and accounts of

the books and genealogies of the Bible. The meticulous why in which Hebrew Scribes recorded the Torah, from one generation

to the next, insuring that the record was exact, and discarding any errors, is a long standing and accepted 5700 plus year old

method by which Torah scrolls are recorded today. So when we say we have an assurance of the Merrick record and line

back to 262 BC, although the documents date to the earliest 55 BC, as with the Manuscripts below used on this site,

which the parchment or paper dates to 300 CE or 900 CE, we can still have confidence that the ages and times of the records

are accurate. Whereas with DNA, we would expect that the J1 and J2 Haplogroups would appear here from the Genetic code,

the R1b1a2 or similar R1b or 1B appears in the lines claiming a Cohanim or Levitical Priestly claim. Many are shocked to find

that their Jewish tradition for centuries has been shattered by the Modal Cohen from FTDNA. In talking with Bennett Greenspan

from FTDNA, and reviewing the papers from the studies done by various sources, I would have to disagree that his modal type

is in fact the modal DNA code for the Hebrew Israel line of Levi in that the pattern tested by his own account, is that of a corrupted

priestly line as the record shows: (See Faith Radio interview with Bennett Greenpan on KPJC certification of Hebrew origins)


"There was a paper by Dr. Michael Hammer of the University of Arizona which highlighted 4 or 5 lineages 
among Jews where the Cohnaim claim is made. By far the largest group is J1 followed by J2. There are 
people who are found within our 1B which if L 23/L 49+ seems to be a lineage restricted to the Middle East. 
You are perhaps familiar with the book  “the Jewish wars” by Flavius Josephus, who mentioned that 
during the latter Temple 2  Era the position of chief Cohen  had become corrupted, rather a purchased position 
instead of strictly a patrilineal lineage of dissent. However all of these lineages, narrow as they may be, 
are found with in established Jewish communities around the world." Bennett Greenspan FTDNA


So these J1 and J2 should be present in say Jerusalem today, where we would expect the DNA to show up, and be the real Cohanim

with a cluster of these types of DNA showing on the map, and migrating from Israel to the pathways that these ancient records and genealogies

show. With the modal Cohen from FTDNA, we only find them appearing in the north of Europe, from the "purchased position" of a corrupted

line who as the Bible says "Say they are Jews but are not". So to spite the claims of success from many learned men, who I hold in high regard and respect,

I would have to disagree with the modal type they espouse and even admit is by ancient account of Josephus, a corrupted line. So Also when I see that

educated men, with a genealogical record that spans to 55 BC with assurance are in a R1b1 line which also comes from the Middle East, and has better

account of the history of an uncorrupted line, I would go with the actual DNA trail on the ground rather than in the Ivory Tower of Roman compromise.

So when I draw Phonetic associations between these names, and see a Cohen in Wales who came from Poland from Ukraine before that, and That R1b

shows up on the ground within the same footprint of the history of the Cohanim before corruption by Rome, I would have to go with the lesser claim

by DNA and support the R1b claim over the one without a record that was taken from a recent synagogue group who have strong ties by DNA

to the Roman pollutions of not just DNA, but that purchased position. Understanding that I am coming from a more Karaite and Purist form of Jewish

Thinking that would tend more toward the Handwritten Torah above the Rabbinical claims to heed their words above that of HaShem written with

HIS own finger in stone. This latent Greek Talmud view comes from a Roman doctrine of Papal authority over the creator, and therefore, I would

encourage the Jewish Cohen from R1b to not despair or give place to that which you feel from the Ruach in place of DNA science which is unproven

by a record of scribe as the Torah of Moses is, and as the line of Levi and Jacob has with the reference below. I was raised a Christian,

and left the Roman cult of Nazi murderers for a better understanding of the G-d of Jacob, and will not return to Babylon, no matter how pretty

the Idol is. Since I am Messianic in my own practice of The Faith, I have no agenda here, and would not make any claim to first place in reading

Torah, so my unbiased stance is purely for genealogy purposes, not for position.

According to DNA Testing, The Y or Male lines of Royal DNA have a prodominance of R1b along with MT Femal J1 and J2 with some

variations as noted in the Surname DNA published papers. Lacking in these works is the release of DNA testing completed here with the Merrick

Foundation Org through Family Tree DNA. See "Larkin BT. (2013, Aug 9). Y-DNA of the British Monarchy: A review on the occasion of the

Y DNA compared to Royal Lines with Merrick samples:

Merrick To Windsor:  Difference of markers 3   Compared 12   Percentage of variation  0.16 %   Familiar Relations 99.84% DNA Match

Merrick To Tzar Nicolas:  Difference of markers 2 Compared 60 Percentage of variation 0.033 %  Familiar Relations 99.97% DNA Match

Merrick To Mountbatten:  Difference of markers 2 Compared 16 Percentage of variation 0.125 %  Familiar Relations 99.88% DNA Match

(Note King Richard II has been noted to have a displaced genetic line to J2 a Hebrew line also.)

The relationships with both Y Male lines and MT mothers lines compared show that the Merrick lines in America and Wales are a close cousin of the Royal houses of Europe

and that they have common Grandparents within the last 20 generations. With such a percentage in the male lines, the DNA of within 2 generations had matching DNA with distant

lines within the last 12 generation. When compared to appearence of the mutations, all differences were within one marker IE: 29 in Royal was 30 in Merrick showing that the variations

were within acceptable mutations percentages for direct line cousins.

In the cases above where DNA is not given, the sources Mt DNA that has been verified is J1b and J2

We can only assume that this Jewish connection is kept secret due to the antisemetic discrimination.

It is important to note, that Biblical prophesy has foretold that the line of David would always have a

King until Messiah comes. This ancient prophetic prediction has come true in England and in other

royal houses that remain in Europe. The Mt sequences above match J1b DNA with our source of

Royal ancestry. Royal Mt Haplogroups include H, I, J, R, and T as noted in source studies. Recent

testing of Richard II proved that the line of J2 appeared where R1b was and should be expected.

We have found T, H1b and J1b to be common in DNA of Royal ladies with the sequence HRV

So we see there was a split between these two types, and the earlier migration, which is documented to have moved to Wales from Spain and

Belgium and France, which migrated into the group known as the Merari or Mar, which date back to 1300 BC, predating the 3 BC King Herod, having come

from the migrations of the Bible book of Ezra to the First Temple period.


Since we see this AH MAR was in fact the root of a actual King of Anglo Saxon CO EL of the Mari, and his son

AH MAR or AR THAR, as the translations changed the name with phonetic progressions, who were in some cases inner-married, converted

to Christianity, and others who fled to the Americas, formed a Royal line of 58+ Kings in 3 minor kingdoms of Wales. Up to the time of King

Llewelyn in 1490, this line had the levent phonetic and the Merari phonetic that became the Merrick, Meyrick, Myrick line which was given

in marrage to the line of King Edward III making the title of Prince of Wales gift to the House of Winsor from the House of Merrick and thus

giving the lesser Royal claims to the in family to deminish to the position of Merrick son of Llewelyn to the Guard of King Henry as the line which

the Right Reverend Roland D Merrick, D.D. who first translated the Bible in Welsh in about 1550 predating King James 1611. His knowledge of

Hebrew and Greek and as Rector of Bangor Wales, where the university is today. Along with a large Jewish population, Documented Cohen

lines took on that role, and if converted being Catholic and Protestant, or remaining secretly Jewish, or carefully practicing, became the Irish

Geroge M Cohen's and Cohen of migration to America. These Merarite Jews are often R1b found in the Sloan lines as well as the various

names as given surnames, which some took by direct knowledge to their historical past and family traditions. The mixture of legend and

genealogical facts has shown that many stories may well in fact be born in historical truth.


So when I see Levitteson, who was Cohen in Ukraine, and those who left predating the 2nd Temple "Purchased Position" I see a marked

difference that is proven by Manuscripts which are largely ignored by the modern Jewish Yiddish speaking group, which have discriminated against

not just Sephardic, but Merarite Jews also. One thing is true is not exclusive that the other is false, but it is clear that either the Kohanim modal

of the FTDNA badge is the right line, or the R1b is the right line. One is a line from a purchased position, the other is a Levitical line. With

Sephardic coming from a large amount of R1b, along with the middle eastern roots spoken of in the video above, it may well be we are cousins,

or it may be that the assignment of the ideas of who was Cohen was influenced by a bias position of those designing the test of present day Yiddish

Jews from AC, and they gave no place to the possible tainting of their Jewish claims to the facts of History such as that of Josephus. If I pick two

Jews, and all the controlling class of orthodox Jews from the Askenash AC, place that badge on their chest, and come up with the other population

which is R1b that has the equal claim, I ask, where is the documented Genealogy to back up your claim? Even the word Brit-ish means

covenant in Hebrew. Here is mine which predates yours:

Merarite Clan

The Merarites were given twelve cities from the tribes of Zebulun, Reuben, and Gad. Their city allotment can be found in Joshua 21:34-40.

From the tribe of Zebulun

Jokneam, Kartah, Kimnah, Nahalal

From the tribe of Reuben

Bezer, Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath

From the tribe of Gad

Ramoth-Gilead, a city of refuge, Mahanaim, Heshbon, Jazer

In all, the tribe of Levi received a total of forty-eight towns in the "territory held by the Israelites".

 Only 9 rested south of Jerusalem. The heartland of Israel, Judah, Ephraim, and Manasseh, did not receive the majority of

Levitical cities. Rather, most cities lie in the peripheral areas to the north and east of the heartland.

Much of the area encompassed by these cities of the tribe of Levi lie within Canaanite controlled territory until the time of

David. Indeed, God's presence was needed most in these areas under idolatrous influence.

Not only did the tribe of Levi receive these cities, but Scripture indicates they also received the pasture lands surrounding each town as well.

Numbers 35 records an interesting conversation between God and Moses. God instructs Moses on how each city given to t

he tribe of Levi is to be structured. God's attention to detail is incredible.

Each Levite town has pasture lands for "their cattle, flocks and all their other livestock".

The pasture lands around each town are to extend fifteen hundred feet from the town wall. Three thousand feet are allotted

for each pastureland, on each side of the city: 3,000 ft. on the east side; 3,000 ft. on the south side; 3,000 ft. on the west side; and 3,000 ft. on the north side.

The town itself was to rest in the center, surrounded on each side by huge pastures. The Levites were to be self-sufficient, relying solely on God for sustenance.

God, in turn, provided each city with enough cattle, flocks, livestock, land, and crops to be self-reliant.

Each of the tribes of Israel, in essence, paid a tithe to God; in the form of towns and land, within their respective tribal allotment.

These were to be given specifically to the tribe of Levi.

There are several lines and routes one may take up a tree of genealogy to get the answers to who you came from

in Royal lines. Here are a few from my Ancestry.Com tree to show documented proof of the Royal connection.

Along with DNA in both Y male and Mt female mother's lines, we find the evidence of the lineage proven by

history, genealogy and science. DNA became the tool to validate the long standing claim of the Merrick ancestors

of America and Wales. Genetic Genealogy was first suggested online by Dr Merrick in 1993 in beginning research

on this line. With the help of we can publish history of this family as we have at


House of Rhodri the Great. King of Gwynedd, Walse

From Mt DNA To Royal Netherlands House of Sweedish Wittenberg:

So as you can see, the evidence in the tree is beyond dispute in more than one branch to Royal ancestry.

See Family Tree DNA Web Site for this surname at

Royal lines related ancesters include Israel, Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, France, Belgin, Sweeden, Netherlands, Scotland, England, Walse and Germany.

The above list of chronicles that give the history of the early Britons, constitutes a rather large percentage
of the total number of Welsh manuscripts that have come down to us from medieval times. Given that they
are all catalogued in easily accessible collections, it is astonishing that even their very existence goes
unmentioned by most scholars who are aware of them, and that British history prior to 55 BC remains a
blank page. But perhaps their acknowledgement would lead the recorded history of the early Britons
uncomfortably back to Genesis, and that is a concept that modernism simply could not accommodate.
So when we talk of this Biblical connection it is a clear one, from the text found known as the Dead Sea
Scrolls also, to 262BC these records have survived. The date of the copies has little effect on the age
of the genealogies, and a long standing record to which this Merrick, Merari, Llewelyn, Levi, and Jacob
and the tribes of Israel have been recorded. The CO EL and CO HEN ties are beyond dispute in my opinion.
