How to interpret the South Irish results worksheet

Close genetic matches to another donor

Further research

 

How to interpret the South Irish results worksheet:

  • 58 Markers:  See details of the markers (columns CE to EJ).
    • Confirm your close matches in the 'Best fit R-L21 Project' (column AZ) and the 'Closest Match' columns (column BA).

Close Genetic Matches to another donor: 

We determined the close match cutoff for known or speculative projects by using the current FTDNA interpretations.  67 markers with a GD > 9 are probably not related.  We used this as the end number to compare close matches.  With the close match worksheet in the 'R-L21 South Irish Results' workbook, all close matches less than the GD 7 are listed.

We are using a GD of 9 to compare a donor to a haplogroup like the South Irish (this is not etched in stone and will vary)

If you are no closer than a GD of 9 to any of the 40 known or speculative projects, more research needs to be done to identify your haplogroup.  You can get involved in finding your haplogroup.  It just takes time and tenacity.

Research: 

If you would like to research your DNA results further, you can join the R-L21 Yahoo Groups forum.  There are excellent researchers and well-informed laypersons that can help you understand more about your known or speculative haplogroup.

Also see the R-L21 Haplogroups webpage to understand where your known or speculative project fits into the list of R-L21 projects.
