Another thought that just occurs to me is that some of these ethnic labels I've been tossing around are not, strictly speaking, mutually exclusive.

For example, the well-known Crockett family,...

Scotland would make sense with the general ethnic makeup of the first community that you find any documentation for this family. Scotland, usually through Ireland.

But that's just like a...

What sort of document does this appear in? Is there a full citation to something in a government archive? Or is it something private like a family bible? Or maybe a letter written by a grandson or...

I think Y9087 is functionally equivalent to FGC23343. That's the way the Big Tree depicts it, and Y Full, too. So, unforunately, no new info, it seems.

Against all that, I did notice a 37 marker STR haplotype in the Norway project that is like GD of 6 vs. Henderson, the Shetlander. That could indicate a substantial Norse element within FGC23343...

I've had a hard time getting my bearings about the Vincent branch of FGC23343.

The first thing that I noticed was a very close high resolution match with a fellow surnamed Carroll. It's been a...

Thanks, Sean.

Although FGC23343 seems to be a relatively young clade--TMRCA about 1,800 years ago--it doesn't have a very coherent geographic distribution. As a descendant of ZZ40, this lineage...

Two points with relevance to the remote origin of FGC23343, and the apparent viking involvement of a subset thereof:


1. The ancestral clade Z209, judging from this heat map, is likely to have...

That's very interesting. A little different than my initial expectations. I've sent you a private message with follow up questions, if you don't mind.

SNPs vs. groups of SNPs

I've spent some more time going over the SNP aging methodology for estimates published at YFull. I think I had a major misunderstanding earlier.

Under their terminology, the "formed" date refers...
