  • Significance of DYS393 value?

    I'm pretty new at all this. I have a fairly "classic" set of markers with a somewhat "odd" value of 14 for DYS-393. This appears to be a fairly low occurrance with R1b male lines. Any ideas as to any possible significance or anything I can infer from this value? (My wife is kidding me that she married a "mutant")

    Thanks///

    I have a 14 in DYS-439 as do two other members of the Meek group. The test indicate that we three are related. I believe that 13 is the more common value. But I am off in other markers also. At least it will be easy to identify our relatives.

      DYS393 is a slow-mutating marker, I believe, and a value of 14 happens about 8% of the time. In our Hurst project all 15 of our Group A or "Shenandoah" Hurst men have a 14. We have enough other unusual markers so that we only have one other person of a different surname as a close match. So we have our own unique family haplotype which can be traced back to a man born, probably in Virginia, in about 1675. We are trying to extend this back another two generations. It's great to have some unusual values to separate your family from the crowd.
