As per our previous communications, I am a descendant of John Moody & Mary Hopkins (of Magilligan, LDY).
In reference to your statements that “Perhaps our Moody's are truly some descendants of the Norwegian vikings who set up camp in Dublin, Ireland…” and “We can't seem to find our branch of the Moody's anywhere in Scotland even though several claim to have roots there before landing in Nor. Ireland”, oral tradition in my part of the family states the Moodys were a highland Scots family who moved to Ulster (long before it became Northern Ireland) to escape civil strife in the Scottish highlands. The civil strife may be the events following the battle of Culloden in 1746, however I will need to check my notebooks & files.
The progress with the Moody Y-DNA is very impressive, particularly, when compared with my own Y-DNA; the matches for my surname are too far away to be of any genealogical use.
