My name is Zoiya Holland-Tate. I am of Russian descent on my mother's side and recently through DNA we learned my mother is also German and Irish. On my fathers's side I am German/Prussian, Ashkenazi Jewish, Spanish, Irish and a little English. I have been researching my family tree almost daily for over 4 years. I have learned a lot in that short time and consider myself to be on the intermediate level and working towards expert, though the DNA is a new frontier for me.
My Paternal Grandfather was a Holland, his bloodlines also include: Bausbach (paternal) & Haase, Hermann (maternal). This line also has many Y-DNA to Anglin and Allen autsomal matches to Cohen, Smith, Miller, Levin.
My paternal Grandmother was a Myers, her major blood lines include: Sprague, Green(e), Kidder, Hutchins, Cutler, Lynde, Jessop, Ballard, Wheeler, Bowman (maternal) & Eaton, Cullers/Kuller, Burner, Packer, Plumber, (paternal)
-My paternal Grandmother's side are mostly Colonial and Mayflower families.
My maternal Grandfather was a Metchnikoff (Mechikoff/Metchikoff), his bloodlines include: Klubniken, Ztadorkin, Novikoff
My maternal Grandmother was a Pavloff (Pavlov,Pabloff), her lines include: Klubniken, Bukroff(Bucaroff/Buckroff), Novikoff(maternal). Her Paternal lines remain a mystery as of now due to her father having an assumed identity. Recent DNA clues point to the surnames Renner and Hollimen
-This side contains Russian Molokan immigrants who came to the United States between 1904-1908. My Grandmother's side settled in the Guadalupe Valley, Baja Calif, Mex
An Autosomal DNA test confirms a maternal relationship between Zoiya Holland & Anne Metchnikoff Anne is Zoiya's mother.
An Autosomal DNA test confirms a paternal relationship between Zoiya Holland FTDNA kit# B199512 and Thomas Holland 694398  Thomas is the father of Zoiya.
An Autosomal test confirms a maternal relationship between Zoiya Holland Gedmatch A036603 and Denise Crispin Gedmatch #A128843  Denise is the daughter of Anne Metchnikoff and is the 1/2 sibling of Zoiya.
My family seemed to enterchange the two though the "Greene" spelling is the original way. I have 2 separate Green lines one that imigrated in through Va and SC. Removing to OH. The other is of historical significance described in the Greene tag.
I have many ancestors that fought on both sides. I am particularly interested in my Great-great GrandfatherWilliam James Holland of Alexandria, VA who enlisted in Va Reg't 17th Infantry Co. H and his record says transferred to MD line in 1862. I am not sure what happened to him after that and during the war until 1880. I think he may have either been a POW or deserter I am hoping to learn the truth.
Zoiya Tate's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Zoiya or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Zoiya:
