About us

To date, more than 200 men with more than 60 different surnames have been identified as having a haplotype consistent with the Little Scottish Cluster.  Unfortunately, they haven't all yet joined our project.

Below is an NJ diagram of the various men in our project.  This diagram was generated by Steven Colson on Dec. 28, 2011.  Only men who have had at least 67 markers tested have been included.  Various family groups have been indicated, but not all of the men fall into such clear groups.


Although this diagram does a fairly good job of breaking the men into family groups, its accuracy is limited by the number of markers tested. In the future, when more men have upgraded to 111 markers, we may be able to resolve other relationships between or within the families.
