Lineages

Information on this page relates to the lineages of men who are participating in our Y-DNA project. The project results page can be viewed here: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mcfadden/default.aspx?section=ycolorized. See our FAQ for further details.

Notes:
– MDKA = Most Distant Known Ancestor
– The series of numbers and letters following a tester’s name is their FTDNA kit number (e.g. McFadden B4058).
– The series of numbers and letters following a group’s name is a DNA marker or set of markers for which the group is either positive or negative (e.g. M222+).
– A group is created when men have a close Y-DNA match with someone who shares their surname. Testers who do not have such a match are classified as “Ungrouped.” Men who are in a group by themselves have close Y-DNA matches who share their surname, but those matches are not part of the project.
– Men grouped together are assumed to be of the same lineage. However, ungrouped men and groups within the same basic haplogroup (e.g. R-M269) are not necessarily unrelated. Further testing may be required to prove or disprove these ancient connections.
