ENGLISH SURNAME (and variations) DNA PROJECT RESULTS
 
NOTE: FTDNA Y-DNA RESULTS TABLE HAS UNDERGONE A CHANGE (OCT. 2010)
Family Tree DNA explains the changes in their results chart: "We used to show multi-copy markers in individual columns but this caused problems as it put constraints on the database. This is not the case with the new format as extra copies of the markers can easily be updated."(Darren Marin; 31 Dec 2010)

GROUP 1: Members share an unknown common ancestor and are presented in three sections.

<1.1a>- NC and/or GA Lines = Share paper trails: [E-08] and [E-16] to Mathew English (c.1755) 
<1.1b> - NC to GA Lines = Share paper trails: [E-02] and [E-18] and [E-26] to Sampson J. English (1790).
<1.1c> - Migration: NC//SC//AL//KY = patriarch Wilson English: [E-52] has no shared paper trail to <1.1a> or <1.1b>.
The relationship between Mathew English <1.1a> and Sampson J. English <1.1b> is probably very, very close (first cousins?)
The relationship between <1.1c> to both <1.1a> and <1.1b> is probably very close.

<1.2> - Alabama/Texas Line [E-01] and Alabama/Florida Line [E-64]. Both lines are genetically closer to group <1.1> than to group <1.3>.

<1.3> - NC and/or GA Lines = No shared paper trails but [E-05] (NC/GA) & [E-13] (NJ!) appear to be more closely related to each other than to those in <1.1>.

Group 3: "Niall of the Nine Hostages"

[E-14] and [E-34] confirm the family tradition of the SC Brock family that English was the biological father. They also share an unknown common ancestor with [E-15] person but not in any recent time frame. All match the proposed profile of the 5th-century warlord known as "Niall of the Nine Hostages" who established a dynasty of powerful chieftains that dominated Ireland for six centuries and who may be the ancestor of one in 12 Irishmen.

2. Kit Number and Participant Number
The KIT NUMBER is assigned by Family Tree DNA.
The PARTICIPANT NUMBER is for identification purposes in this study only and is used on this Website and in E-mail communications with the administrators. When a new member joins the the project we assign a number which we find easier to identify among the many sets of numbers we are working with.
(NOTE: FTDNA DOES NOT HAVE A RECORD OF THE PARTICIPANT NUMBER SO ALWAYS USE YOUR KIT NUMBER WHEN CONTACTING FTDNA.)
 
3. Presentation Order
For those with matches (family groups), results are presented by haplogroup. Family groups (color-coded matches) are listed in Participant number order. DYS numbers with white background in color coded groups indicate an apparent mutation from the presumed earliest haplotype for that group. Participants awaiting results are listed at the end of the chart. Presentation order is subject to change.
 
4. Modal Haplotype (Presumed)

The Modal Haplotype is presumed and is subject to change as new information becomes available. "Mode" is the number or range of numbers in a set that occur the most frequently. The modal haplotype has nothing to do a timeline or with the documentation of participants. In some cases we can determine the likely "ancestral" haplotype - which may or may not be the modal.
In the “Results Table”, the presumed MODAL HAPLOTYPE is used as a reference (the "white" markers are those that differ from the modal.)

 
5. abbreviations

DYS# - DYS Numbers: DYS numbers as reported by FTDNA. (Note that these are not in numerical order.)
DYS = DNA + Y chromosome + [unique DNA] Segment.
HUGO (Human Genome Organization) assigns DYS numbers.
According to FTDNA, the certain markers show a faster mutation rate than average. However, managers of large surname studies report variations that differ from those in a mixed random group.

 
6. Group (or Family Group)
Family groups are groups of two or more participants who match. Unless there is evidence to the contrary (e.g., those with very common haplotypes and no shared paper trail), it is assumed they share a common ancestor. The common ancestor may, or may not, be known. Group 1 was assigned to the first participants with a match.. The next participants with a match are assigned Group 2, the next Group 3, and so on. The numbers have no other significance. Group descriptions are revised from time to time.
 
7. Haplogroup (deep ancestry)

Haplogroups in green have been confirmed by SNP testing.
Haplogroups in red have been predicted by Family Tree DNA based on unambiguous results in the individual's personal page. FTDNA sees no reason to order a SNP test to confirm a predicted haplogroup.
Haplogroups in black are estimated by FTDNA (comparative results are not clear and unambiguous). If the kit holder wants to know his SNP with 100% confidence, consider ordering a SNP confirmation test.
(See Haplo Descriptions - FTDNA below)
For more information, participants should review personal page at FTDNA.

 
8. Haplogroup Overview
A Haplogroup is a genetic population group associated with early human migrations and which can today be associated with a geographic region. It is important to note that even though female and male haplogroups may have the same letters, their definitions are different.
 
What is a Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) haplogroup?
Answer: A haplogroup is a collection of individuals who share a common genetic ancestor. When working with Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) and direct paternal lineages, haplogroups are major branches on the paternal family tree of Homo Sapiens.
 
What does a Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) haplogroup tell us?
Answer: Haplogroups and their subclades (branches) characterize the early migrations of population groups. As a result, haplogroups are usually associated with a geographic region. If haplogroups are the branches of the tree then the haplotypes represent the leaves of the tree. All of the haplotypes that belong to a particular haplogroup are leaves on the same branch.
 
9. Haplogroup Descriptions - FTDNA
E3b is believed to have evolved in the Middle East. It expanded into the Mediterranean during the Pleistocene Neolithic expansion. It is currently distributed around the Mediterranean, southern Europe, and in north and east Africa.
 
I, I1, and I1a are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe.
 
J2 lineage originated in the northern portion of the Fertile Crescent where it later spread throughout central Asia, the Mediterranean, and south into India. As with other populations with Mediterranean ancestry this lineage is found within Jewish populations.
 
R1a is believed to have originated in the Eurasian Steppes north of the Black and Caspian Seas. This lineage is believed to have originated in a population of the Kurgan culture, known for the domestication of the horse (approximately 3000 B.C.E.). These people were also believed to be the first speakers of the Indo-European language group. This lineage is currently found in central and western Asia, India, and in Slavic populations of Eastern Europe.
 
R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype.
Note: R1b was known as HG1 in an earlier classification system.
