In Reply to: Brickers originating from the UK by Michael Bricker of 739

I am not a Bricker but I have recently done a dna test, with www.familytreedna.com most of my matches were UK, specifically Derbyshire, including one Bricker who has a pretty clear family tree back to Germany.

Have you tried this line of investigation? The common haplogroup was E1b1b which is fairly rare in the UK, <2% of the population. An interesting paper on the haplogroups distribution in the UK is:

if one Bricker is of this rare haplogroup with a strong correlation with other definitive UK samples, are all Brickers?
