The R1b Claim and Merari - Cohan
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
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
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
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
to the next, insuring that the record
was exact, and discarding any errors, is a long standing and accepted 5700 plus
method by which Torah scrolls are
recorded today. So when we say we have an assurance of the Merrick record and
back to 262 BC, although the
documents date to the earliest 55 BC, as with the Manuscripts below used on this
which the parchment or paper dates to
300 CE or 900 CE, we can still have confidence that the ages and times of the
are accurate. Whereas with DNA, we
would expect that the J1 and J2 Haplogroups would appear here from the Genetic
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
from FTDNA, and reviewing the papers
from the studies done by various sources, I would have to disagree that his
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
"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
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

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

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

Merrick relationship by Royal Records and publications of close relationship:

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
markers above in green. To spite
being different Haplo groups, the DNA ID is smililar in Royal

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
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.
