Subject: Re: [DNA] DYS 565 in R-P312+ haplotypes of British Isles origin(Anglin)

Thank you for confirming for me that Anglin was Irish. I almost put him
with the Irish but since he was from Georgia, USA, and the name was too
close to England I thought I’d better not push my luck.
His Y-DNA is actually closer to my Johnston Y-DNA than the others.
What I noticed about this Anglin is that if you check for genetic
against all the modal groups (I always just type in surname “modal” at
Y search and several pop up) you find that Anglin is not very close to
of them including South Irish, R1b1b2 modal, Scots modal R L21* etc.
So I think we deserve our own cluster, even though my Johnston ancestry
supposed to be Scottish. This Johnston did spend 30+ years in Ireland
and does not
match other Johnstons. Hmmm. Well the name just means John’s place
has other suspected derivations as well, so who knows ultimately where
Maybe this is a very old group that seems to encompass many surnames .
It would be helpful if others with similar haplotypes would carry out
markers to at least 67 with L21 testing to further define this cluster.
For some reason, my paths always lead to ancient migrations, whether it
be YDNA, mtDNA or X Chr DNA. It is never recent history.
