Haplogroup

"e;Delta"e; = number of DYS marker differences from previous family. Note that when the difference is greater than one (for example 2 or 3) the difference is the total difference between the two values. Note too the DYS389 and DYS389II is actually a dual marker. The difference in DYS389 is included in DYS389II so if they differ by the same amount it is counted as one. If the difference at DYS389II is greater it would then be counted less the difference in DYS389. If it is less (e.g. 13-14 and 30-30) it is counted as a drop and thus adds to the difference again less the difference in DYS389.

Normally a match within 5 markers of a baseline family or between baseline families indicates there is a relationship between the two families or between an individual and the family. Compare the data in the Results page with the baseline to determine which family a participant may be related to. W013 and W014 are clearly related as are W015 and W018. W006, W016, W020 and W028 are also related. The difference of 3 between W024 and W025 would indicate a relationship between these two families but it may be prior to 1700. A value of 6 or more tends to indicate the two families are not related. However it is possible in some cases there is a relationship many generations prior to 1600.

After further analysis this page may be revised with regard to the order of the families shown.

Families 26 through 39 have been added as baseline families because the participants did not match any other families, there were at least two participants that matched the DNA pattern (haplotype) and there is genealogy to support the line although the earliest common ancestor has not been identified. More baseline families will be added as the project progresses. Some may be combined if we are able to identify an earlier common ancestor.

-- = We do not have an expanded test for this family so the indicated numbers are not available.

* = No value was obtained in the testing. This is not particularly significant in most cases.
