Slaven DNA Project Results.

Test results are shown in the table below. The columns marked "DYS" are the identification numbers assigned for the location being tested on the Y-chromosome-- sort of like the house number in an address. The value under each DYS heading is a count of "short tandem repeats" or the number of times at that location a specific pattern of the four bases that make up DNA are repeated. For example, at location 393, the pattern repeats 13 times for participant B001 and 14 times for participant D001. Since the values are not the same, this would not be a match so you'd move across the table, counting the columns where the values are the same. Short ancestry reports follow the table; you can click on the kit number in the table to jump to the report.

The colors of the cells are not meaningful in themselves, but highlight values that deviate from those most common across the Project.

For clarity's sake, the results have been placed into five groups; the descendants of Richard Slavey/Slaven, John Slavin of Garrard County, and Robert Slaven have been placed in Group A. Group B contains known or suspected descendants of John Slavin of Highland County, Virginia, Jacob Slavens of Illinois/Tennessee, a Scot with roots in County Tyrone, and an descendant of a family line from County Donegal. Group C is comprised of two Scots with Irish roots, the descendant of another Scot with Irish roots, and descendants of a Slavin/Slevin men from County Tyrone. Group D is an family line with unspecified Irish roots, and a family with roots in County Meath or Westmeath. The newest group, Group E, is a family with Irish roots and a family with roots in County Donegal. The group labeled "Unrelated Individuals" are participants whose results do not closely match others presently in the study.

FTDNA has listed markers that they feel are "fast movers," more likely to show a mutation in fewer generations. These are shown in red in the "DYS" row below.

Also, I've re-colored the 389-2 squares to more accurately compare them. 389-2 contains the count of 389-1, and a better way to think of the markers-- some labs even report them this way-- is 14-16 instead of 14-30, 13-17 instead of 13-30, etc. Now the yellow will represent a value of 16 for 389-2, and that funny off-green represents 17.

Haplogroups.

Each person's collection of DNA values is referred to as their haplotype. Scientist have sorted and classified haplotypes into haplogroups, which provides a clue as to the ancient background of the population. All but two of the participants belong to the R1b (formerly called HG1) haplogroup, the most common of the European haplogroups. The haplogroup is widely dispersed across Europe and is believed to be descended from hunter-gathers who arrived in Europe before the last Ice Age 40,000 years ago. Two participants, Z004 and 86XZJ1, are haplogroup I, sometimes referred to as the "Viking" haplotype, found in Scandinavia and parts of Ireland, Scotland, and England, where it's thought to denote descent from the Viking invaders.
