DNA Testing Programme
If you have a Y DNA Test and would be willing to share your results with the society please contact us
DNA Managers Report to 2013 AGM
Thirty-six Y-DNA tests have been carried out on members of the Society since the project was launched.
Eighteen of the thirty six tests have shown matches that
establish links to one of six familial lines.
The remaining eighteen tests have established eighteen further
familial lines, each with one member.
There are, therefore, twenty four familial lines identified at the moment within the project.
An Interesting Test Result
Kevin East could trace his family line back to Linconshire.
His Y-DNA test showed his nearest DNA match with 32/37 markers was with Ron East but this is not good enough to establish a clear familial link.
However, what is interesting is that Kevin is also a member of the rarer haplogroup, R1a1a, along with Ron East and Chris East who can also trace their family lines back to Lincolnshire.
Does this suggest that Chris, Ron and Kevin are all part of the same family but that the mutation rate of the markers is unusually high?
