Welcome to the Scottish DNA Project
Family Tree Results-April-17-2008:
The latest update of the Y-DNA Results (18 Jan 2008) is posted in the files at on
the project web site at
Request access to this
web site by emailing Charlotte Broun at
Y-DNA Masterbase contains over 2100 Y-DNA results. The Scottish DNA
Masterbase includes both the Family Tree DNA results and results from numerous
other sources that are sent to us.
Family Tree DNA Testing Program:
The Family Tree DNA alone has over 1000 results posted. Our project is now in the
Top 5 of all projects listed at Family Tree DNA. I haven't counted the total number
of tests and the upgrades orders, but it has to be one of the largest in the total DNA
The results of the Family Tree are beginning to show some results from
DNA matches. We will post these results to the
www.myfamily.com web site
for everyone. But a summary shows:
New Software Analysis:
- YDNA-12 Markers
486 Results with over 70% having a 12/12 match with others
Top is 32 exact unique match
- YDNA -25 Markers
674 Results with 94 having a 25/25 exact match with others
Top being a group of 8 exact unique match.
- YDNA-37 Markers
646 Results with 12 having a 37/37 match with others
Six pairs of 2 unique exact unique match
- YDNA -67 Markers
273 Results with 4 exact unique match with others
2 groups of 2 matching. (many with less than 3 genetic distance)
We've added two new Software programs (DNA-PAT & TNG). They are both
on the server at:
These will provide some useful data and are also
for your use to post family trees to compare paper documentation and to
assist in analyzing your own DNA match.
Note that you need to establish a user name and password for each
software program. Everyone is welcome to use this software by merely
registering and requesting a username.
This is provided as a free
service by the Scottish DNA project. Access to these programs is at :
Analysis using the Master Database:
The Master Database is a "split screen" version of the Scot DNA Results that
we receive. You can remove the split screen by merely going under the
Tabs on the top and remove the splits screen.
To determine if there is a potential match ...you merely:
There is also the capability of using the arrows to set a particular group of test
scores in the box and that will then bring up all tests that match that particular
setting. Charlotte Broun gets the credit for this particular creative method :-).
- Add your specific DNA results in line 16
- Scroll the screen to each DNA entry to compare the results.
Be careful to note that you are then rearranging all the results entries so only
change one DYS setting at a time to compare results.
There are also now 313 results in the MtDNA database. This will be posted on the
My Family web site.
DNA Results from Other Projects:
email@example.com or to
Some of you may also have results from other Labs or other Clan and Surname projects
and also want to be included in this database.
Send your test results to Alasdair MacDonald at
She will then convert to the standard
format for the Master database.
Online Video and Web Conference:
There is also a new free service for online web conferencing available to anyone
as well. This provides for Power Point, Whiteboard, audio, etc. The Clans and
Families can then hold a online discussion on the potential matches among their
own groups and compare their ancestry directly online.
The techie people (level 5 geek please) can also create a video online that
can show their results and family tree to send to other interested family
Please drop me an email to schedule this.
