Hello again Mike,
I just posted a reply to another query you had here at this same page on your Needham Tolar.
You mention that your Tolar's came over from Ireland...well ironically a branch of our Moody's did too...from Co. L'derry in Northern Ireland. Many of the families in No. Ireland came there from Scotland.
Our particular Ydna branch of Moody's are of a very early Norwegian group who most likely settled in Scotland and then some of them proceeded to Nor. Ireland but some of them came directly to North America.
The TOLAR person that we share the closest Ydna with after our own Moody surname, would also have been from Scandinavia with the haplotype that we all share (I1a-N (Norse), now called simply I1...things in the world of Ydna continually change so as they learn more and more, we keep having to change the terms etc.

Perhaps your Tolar's are also from the same branch as ours if they came over from Ireland too. By any chance did your Tolar's end up in the South (in case I overlooked that from your queries)?
