Haplogroup E3b (now E1b1b1)

"Around 8,000 years ago, the Neolithic peoples of the Middle East that had developed the new technology of agriculture began moving into Europe. There were several haplogroups involved, mainly E3b, F, J2 and G2."

Haplogroup E3b1a2 as a Possible Indicator of Settlement in Roman Britain by Soldiers of Balkan Origin, by Steven C. Bird

     
   


DNA data results last updated (corrected) 23 October 2014

NEWS: The FTDNA lab recently (March 2007) adjusted the DNS 448 marker (#20 below) to zero. A value of 19 was previously assigned to the marker for technical reasons. The zero value is more accurate since the DNA marker is actually missing in participants' DNA results. The lab states that this condition is incredibly rare and is tremendous proof of a kinship between two persons of the same surname sharing the condition.

DNA Results reflecting apparent kinship are presented in the same color (no close relationship known = white)

***Note: The Cornwall Shirleys are supposedly "related" to the other US branches despite differing DNA markers. The lab has informed the Shirley Association that both the Cornwall Shirleys and Branch #7 Shirleys possess an incredibly rare marker (lack of marker) which ensures that they share the same ancestor. This family also has been assigned an additional DNS marker #25a with a value 17.
