Although having only 25 markers, GYAGP differs from Harry (CAAGC) at DYS
464d = 18. In view of the apparent rarity of the 9JKHQ-Y34QR-54QSN-CAAGC
group, might GYAGP have a good chance of being another member of this group?
GYAGP's most distant know ancestor was Angus McAllister born about 1672 in
Scotland. Harry's most distant know ancestor was John McAllister born about
1675 in Northern Ireland. Family talk was that our McAllisters ultimately
came from Scotland but there is no documentation to support this.
If those guys have been in Ireland for a long, long time, are talking in
terms of hundreds or thousands of years?
I've written to GYAGP or his contact person asking if he has considered
upgrading to 67 markers. No reply yet.
Thanks for your analysis of Harry's and the three other guys' results. It
looks very interesting.
