    Awaiting the results of the 67 marker test

    Family Tree DNA posted a perfect match to our kit. His surname is Carmichael from the Lochaber area. We order the other marker test and will hear very soon on the results. This still falls under the MacNeil of Barra with the Viking marker and SNPs which match the Stewarts. I am still confused!

    Hi,

    This is the special project we have been put into. It seems Dr Wilson is hunting a very old gene. DYS 393 = 12 - Cluster 1 - Scotland - MacNeil of Barra

    R-L165 (S68) Project FTDNA R1b1a2a1a1b5b- Background

    Surnames
    Ayton, Beall/Bell, Bronson, Buie of Jura, Cameron, Carmichael, Childress, Gallie, Greenwald, Haag, Hammer, L165, MacDonald, MacLeod, MacNeils of Barra, McGirt, McKinney, McLeod, McNeil, R-L165, Ross, S68, Terrill, Turrell, Tyrrel
    Background

    The SNP defining R-L165/S68 was discovered in 2007 by Jim Wilson of Ethno Ancestry. It was originally thought to be a "Private SNP", but later found in another individual with a different surname and haplotype; Ethno Ancestry designates the SNP as S68. FTDNA found the same SNP independently in 2010 and initially thought it to be "Private" until more unrelated samples showed up. The FTDNA designation for this mutation is L165.

    Later in 2010 it was discovered that the two designations actually refer to the same SNP. ISOGG convention in these cases is to to list them alphabetically regardless of which was discovered first. The ISOGG designation is therefore R-L165/S68.

    Europedia lists the origin of this SNP at about 3,500 years before present. They show the most prevalent ancient group to be Germanic; however there has been considerable discussion on this matter.

    Hi Mama,

    I think it might be a great idea to share it as only 7 known tested, have the same grouping!
