Famous People Sharing Richard Lee Armstrong Y-DNA Haplogroup (Father Lineage)
A haplogroup is a collection of common inherited genes that trace female (mtDNA) and male (Y-DNA) ancestry lines back to an original parent. Your Y-DNA exists outside the nucleus of your cells is only passed down by fathers to sons. We use these haplogroups to trace our common ancestors all the way back to mitochondrial Adam (Y).
Based on the analysis of your Y-DNA, passed down to you from your father’s side, we discovered that several noteworthy individuals belonged to your haplogroup. These individuals include:
Birger Jarl (1200 –1266) and his son Eric Birgersson. Birger Jarl was one of Sweden’s greatest medieval statesman. He was the founder of Stockholm, and acted as regent of Sweden for 18 years. His sons Valdemar and Magnus succeeded, and their descendants for one hundred years, each other as kings of Sweden. This dynasty is known as the House of Bjelbo.
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher, theologian, revelator, and mystic.
Alexander Hamilton (1755 or 1757 –1804) was an American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. He was an influential interpreter and promoter of the U.S. Constitution, as well as the founder of the nation’s financial system, the Federalist Party, the United States Coast Guard, and The New York Post newspaper. As the first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton was the main author of the economic policies of the George Washington administration. He took the lead in the funding of the states’ debts by the Federal government, as well as the establishment of a national bank, a system of tariffs, and friendly trade relations with Britain.
Andrew Jackson (1767–1845) was an American soldier and statesman. He served as the 7th President of the United States from 1829 to 1837. He was the founder of the Democratic Party. Before being elected to the presidency, Jackson served in Congress and gained fame as a general in the United States Army. As president, Jackson sought to advance the rights of the “common man” against a “corrupt aristocracy” and to preserve the Union.
The Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, usually known as Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), was a Russian writer who is regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time. His parents died when he was young and his teachers described him as “both unable and unwilling to learn.” Yet, he is known for his writing, including the novels War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877). They are often cited as pinnacles of realist fiction.
Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933) was the 30th President and 29th Vice President of the United States. A Republican lawyer from Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics until he became governor. His response to the Boston Police Strike of 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight and gave him a reputation as a man of decisive action. Soon after, he was elected as the 29th Vice President in 1920. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small-government conservative. He was a man who said very little, although having a rather dry sense of humor.
The original House of Grimaldi includes the Lord then Prince of Monacountil Louis II of Monaco (1870-1949). The House of Grimaldi also produced three doges of Genoa, a prince of Salerno, and several archbishops and cardinals. The current Princes of Monaco descend from the House of Polignac. The House of Grimaldi is associated with the history of the Republic of Genoa, Italy and of the Principality of Monaco, in France.

Your ancestors in this region were famous for beer. It may sound like a stereotype, but beer is a major point of pride in German culture. German beer is brewed according to a “Beer Purity Law,” known as the Reinheitsgebot. This law permits only water, hops, and malt as ingredients. There are celebrations of beer throughout Germany, the most famous of which is Oktoberfest, where over 7 million liters of beer get served over the 16-day festival.
Germany is the current home to one of the most influential groups of people in the history and genetic makeup of Northwestern Europe. This region was first settled by humans as far back as 45,000 years ago. At that time, vast glaciers during the last Ice Age limited migration. Those glaciers began to retreat roughly 20,000 years ago and by about 10,000 BCE, human settlements expanded to settle newly habitable regions of Europe. Since then, Germany and the rest of Northwestern Europe have seen near-constant human migrations, both peaceful and violent, that are both culturally diverse and genetically related.
Despite Germany’s name today, Germanic cultures actually originated in Scandinavia. Celtic cultures were the first to dominate the region known as Germany today. While many people associate Celtic cultures with Ireland and Scotland, Celtic cultures are believed to have originated in Austria and spread outward from there. As far back as 2,500 years ago, Celtic cultures dominated Germany and many other regions of Western Europe.
Around the same time that the Roman Empire rose to power, Germanic cultures spread southward out of Scandinavia and into Germany. The combination of Roman and Germanic expansion pushed many of the Celtic cultures into the regions of Ireland and Scotland that we associate them with today. Germanic culture has flourished ever since, especially after the collapse of the Roman Empire, when Germanic tribes swept across almost all of Western Europe.
While the Romans failed to conquer the Germans, German culture was still influenced by the Romans. Many German tribes converted to Christianity based on Roman influence and Germany was eventually the primary territory of the Holy Roman Empire of the Middle Ages. During this period of Germany history and for several centuries after the fall of the Holy Roman Empire, the leaders of Germany and Austria called themselves “Kaisers,” which is a direct derivative of the Roman Emperor title of “Caesar.”
Due to near constant migration throughout all of human history, people with German history can be found in almost every corner of the world. Almost everyone with European ancestry is likely to have at least a trace of German DNA.
The British Isles were first settled by modern humans as far back as 12,000 years ago during the end of the last Ice Age. Once upon a time, Great Britain was connected to the European mainland by a land bridge known as “Doggerland.” When the ice sheet covering Europe receded, this frozen bridge eventually submerged into the waters currently known as the North Sea and English Channel.
Since the first human settlements 12,000 years ago, the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland have produced some of the most complex genetic and cultural histories of any nations of the world. The people who first settled the British Isles eventually evolved into several Celtic tribes by 2500 BCE, before Romans began invading England and Wales in 54 BCE, spreading Roman culture and genes throughout those regions. The Romans were unable to conquer the Northern regions of Great Britain, such as Scotland, leaving Celtic tribes able to preserve their culture and overall genetic makeup.
Roman rule in Great Britain collapsed by 410 CE as Anglo-Saxons flooded the region, spreading a Germanic influence and significantly altering the culture and genetic makeup of the land. The migration of Anglo-Saxons to Great Britain, south of Scotland, appears to have had the most significant effect on the overall genome of the British population today.
In fact, the words “England” and “English,” specifically, are derived from medieval phrases that loosely translate to “land of the Angles” and “family of the Angles.” Genetic studies have revealed that English people tend to have a higher proportion of Scandinavian and Northwestern European ancestry (including Anglo-Saxon) in their DNA than populations from the rest of the British Isles.
In addition to Roman and Anglo-Saxon influence, large scale Viking and Norman French invasions in 865 CE and 1066 CE, (to both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, respectively) helped further alter the genetic makeup of populations within the British Isles as well.
Southern, Central Slavic
The first historical mention of Slavic people dates back to Roman expansion in Eurasia, but Slavs are believed to have occupied much of Eurasia long before then. There were many Slavic migrations throughout the centuries under Roman and Byzantine rule. These historical migrations made it so that Slavic people were split into 3 subgroups by 600 AD: West Slavs, East Slavs, and South Slavs.
The ancestry of South Slavs is primarily tied to the Balkan regions, including Bulgaria, Croatia, and Serbia (just to name a few). While centuries of Byzantine and Ottoman rulers may have played a significant role in shaping South Slavic culture, Southern Slavs have held onto a unique genetic identity.
France was first settled by humans as far back as 45,000 years ago. At that time, vast glaciers during the last Ice Age limited migration. Those glaciers began to retreat roughly 20,000 years ago and by about 10,000 BCE, human settlements expanded to settle newly habitable regions of Europe, such as Scandinavia. Since then, France has seen near-constant human migrations, both peaceful and violent, that is both culturally diverse and genetically related.
Celtic cultures were among the first to arise in France. While many people associate Celtic cultures with Ireland and Scotland, Celtic cultures are actually believed to have originated in Austria and spread outward from there. As far back as 2,500 years ago, Celtic cultures dominated the region of France.
As the Roman Empire rose to power, France was called Gaul. Roman invasions pushed most of the Celtic cultures out of France and into the regions of Ireland and Scotland that we associate them with today.
When the Roman Empire fell, Germanic tribes swept across Northwestern Europe until Frankish rulers rose to power in France, a “new” culture of blended Roman/Celtic.
“Scandinavia” can be loosely defined as Northern Europe, especially the regions occupied by modern day Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. This region was permanently settled by modern humans for the first time roughly 10,000 years ago or more, as the ice sheet covering most of Europe began to recede during the Stone Age.
The first modern humans to settle the region were ancient Germanic tribes and the Sami people (also known as Laplanders). The migrations of Germanic tribes played a significant role in shaping the genetic makeup of Europe. The nation of Germany got its name and cultural identity from these Scandinavian migrants. Likewise, the Anglo-Saxons that helped forge the identity of Britain were descended from the Germanic tribes of Scandinavia.
Many people associate Scandinavian history with that of the Vikings. The Vikings were one of the most mobile populations in human history, as they sailed to almost all parts of Europe, as far South as North Africa and as far East as Iran. Viking travels brought them at least as far west to settle Iceland. Archaeological evidence has revealed that they even reached North America centuries before Christopher Columbus!
These conquests by Vikings and ancient Germanic tribes spread Scandinavian DNA to almost all populations of Europe.
The Iberian Peninsula was first settled by modern humans about 40,000 years ago, following the Mediterranean coast from Southern France. By 3000 BCE, several ancient cultures were thriving in Spain that were fairly advanced compared to other Copper and Bronze Age cultures at the time.
When the Iron Age started about 2,800 years ago, the cultures on the Iberian Peninsula were primarily Celtic. However, the Iron Age brought an influx of immigrants from the Phoenician, Greek, and Carthaginian civilizations who were founding vast trade networks all over the Mediterranean. Migrations from Mediterranean civilizations played the most significant role in shaping the genetic and cultural makeup that we see in Spain today. In fact, the name “Iberia” was coined by Greeks, who named the region after the Ebro River in Spain.
The Roman Empire first invaded Spain in 218 BCE and conquered the Iberian Peninsula after two centuries of war with the remaining Carthaginians and Celtic tribes. The Romans renamed the region “Hispania” and ruled over it for half a century, further cementing the Mediterranean legacy.
After the collapse of the Roman Empire, the Iberian Peninsula saw invasions from Germanic tribes and the Islamic Moors of North Africa. Despite today’s dominance of Catholicism in the region, evidence of this historical melting pot can be seen in the overall Spanish genome, as many people with Spanish ancestry also have North African and Jewish ancestries.

The Yoruba are an African ethnic group that originated in what is now Nigeria. There are about 44 million Yoruba, making them one of the largest ethnic groups on the continent. They are renowned for their sculptures and cuisine. Traditional beliefs follow a pantheon of different gods sent by a creator god, Olorun. For Yoruba Christians and Muslims, the name Olorun is used to signify Yahweh or Allah.
The Yoruba people maintain a long oral tradition of their history. The first documents written about them date back to the 17th century CE, from the Oyo Empire. The first archaeological evidence for the Yoruba stems from the 4th century BCE, at Ile-Ife. The Yoruba claim that the gods descended from the heavens at Ile-Ife. According to legend, the gods started their civilization there. Archaeologists have uncovered advanced structures in Ile-Ife dating to the 12th century CE. This was right around the time that the Oyo Empire began.
The Oyo Empire held substantial power during the 17th and 18th centuries, and was able to assert influence over its neighbors. It maintained its power by trading with Portugese merchants. They exchanged goods and slaves for Portugese guns. The Oyo Empire served as a middleman for the Transatlantic slave trade. They sold criminals, captives, and subjugated people to Europeans.
But the Oyo Empire grew complacent, and fell into civil war in 1793. This civil war led to its demise in 1835. What remained of the Oyo Empire was obliterated by the Fulani Empire in 1836. The British came along later to colonize the region in the early 1900s and formed what is now Nigeria.
The Yoruba people have seen two major diasporas. The first diaspora was during the Transatlantic slave trade. Many Yoruba captives and criminals were sold to Europeans for transport to the New World during the 17th and 18th centuries. The second diaspora came after political upheaval in the 1960s and ’80s in Nigeria. This diaspora largely went to the United Kingdom and the United States. In the US, this group settled in Maryland, New York, and New Jersey.

- Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka, also known as Ceylon, has a documented history spanning the last 3,000 years. But evidence of human settlement dates as far back as 125,000 years. The first Sri Lankans were likely the ancestors of the Vedda people. The Vedda are a now near-extinct minority culture.
When and how other Sri Lankan cultures arrived is debated amongst historians. Genetics offers a few clues. The Tamil, Sinhalese, Moors, and others bear many genetic similarities. They also share traits with the populations of South India, including the Tamil, Nadu, and Bengali.
Despite genetic similarities with other South Asian populations, Sri Lankans are culturally distinct. The Tamil descended from the Jaffna Kingdom, which controlled Northern Sri Lanka for centuries.
Today, most Tamil people still live in the former Jaffna Kingdom in Northern Sri Lanka. When Sri Lanka gained independence from the British, tensions rose between the Tamil and the Sinhalese. These tensions led to the Sri Lankan Civil War.
Many Tamil people migrated to other parts of the world during the reign of the British. But, many more were displaced by the Sri Lankan Civil War. Many refugees ended up in Canada and the United Kingdom.
