The Crow(e) DNA Group Study, 2003-2022

The Crow(e) DNA Study was started in January of 2003 and the Study has grown to over 375 Crow testers from around the World and still growing! From these testers and their Y-Chromosome DNA matches the Study has now learned that in modern times there are 19 unrelated Crow, Crowe, Kroh, and variant spellings families living in the World today. These family groups have been assigned 17 color codes listed below, instead of using more letters or numbers, to group them into matching DNA family groups.

Color coded Crow family DNA groups in oldest to youngest order.

Can’t find your link to one of these 17 tested and color coded DNA Crow groups?

If you are a male Crow, or know of one that could represent you in the Crow(e) DNA Study Group, why not get tested and see where your Crow family belongs!

Testing is simple, just a simple scrapping of your mouth’s cheeks with a hard cotton tipped tool in the privacy of your home or office. No pain, no blood, or needles, involved. Results are known about 6 weeks from the time your samples reach Family Tree DNA in Houston, Texas, USA

So, come along with us on a journey back into time on a Crow family history trip of a lifetime, without even your leaving home!

I always recommend the Y-37 male marker test “as a minimum” since it save weeks of time and cost over requesting upgrades at a later date to the 25 or 37 marker levels.
However, the newest Y-67 marker test being offered to us really gives our testers a better picture of when in time their most recent common ancestor (MRCA) lived, when matches with other Crows are found.

Please contact me if interested in your Crow Ancestors and get tested! I think you will be very glad you did, I sure have been!

What are haplogroups?
Haplogroups are genetic population groups that identify where in the Y-DNA or mtDNA tree of humanity you fit in. Haplogroups are what allow us to identify how large groups of people migrated from Africa around 60,000 years ago to different parts of the world.

What is a haplogroup?
One way to think about haplogroups is as major branches on the family tree of Homo Sapiens. These haplogroup branches characterize the early migrations of population groups. As a result, haplogroups are usually associated with a geographic region. If haplogroups are the branches of the tree then the haplotypes represent the leaves of the tree. All of the haplotypes that belong to a particular haplogroup are leaves on the same branch. Both mtDNA and Y-DNA tests provide haplogroup information, but remember that the haplogroups nomenclature are different for each.

Y-DNA haplogroups
A Y-DNA haplogroup is defined as all of the male descendants of the single person who first showed a particular SNP mutation. A SNP mutation identifies a group who share a common ancestor far back in time, since SNPs rarely mutate. Each member of a particular haplogroup has the same SNP mutation. For a single page graphic representation of the Y chromosome haplogroup tree, please see the Haplotree.
