The Wales and Anglo-Saxon Surnames group (17-14-10 subclade)
With April on the wane, not a lot to add since last time. Our newest member is surnamed Thomas but as a predicted member until more alleles are added.
An interesting observation.
So far, with one exception, no two surnames are known to be related to each other. And this is interesting, no new surname duplicates another.
Looking for a home.
Not everyone has the software to view my cluster spreadsheet and enough people have asked for a look, so I am seeking a way for you to view it on the web. I have contacted FamilyTreeDNA to see if they will let me have a spot on their semiprivate R-Y Chromosome projects page.
Typically, FTDNA imposes lots of restrictions and hurdles so the results may not be acceptable to me. If FTDNA fails us, I will look into creating a Google spreadsheet you can view on the web.
I was looking at the mitochondrial mitotypes (mtDNA) for our group and thought you might be interested in the spread.
Mitotype H. Several members are mtDNA H which is the most prevalent in England.
Mitotype T1. One member is mtDNA group T1. This group is sometimes called the ï¿½Royalï¿½ group because several English Kings, Queens and royals were T1 as well as royalty in Sweden and Norway Even Tsar Nicholas was mtDNA T1.
Mitotype U5a Finally, one member is mtDNA U5a. Whatï¿½s interesting is that the 9,000 year old Cheddar Man is also U5a. Cheddar Man was discovered in Richard Cox Goughï¿½s cave in Somerset, England. We have another member whose ancestor is from the Somerset area. Thatï¿½s called interesting genetic convergence.
Good news, bad news, good news.
The good news. Mike Weale, a geneticist at Kings College London, has looked at our Google ancestral locations map at http://tinyurl.com/c5ekha and feels there may be a sliver of relative information there.
The bad news is that Mike is no longer doing Y chromosome migration studies.
The good news is that Mike has agreed to forward my notes to any colleagues that might be interested. The real good news is that my map view counter has recorded over 100 hits since I sent Mike that link so, hopefully, someone in academia is looking at it.
