About us

Although many individuals in the y-chromosome (yDNA) testing portion of the McCollough DNA Project do not have matches, there are some small clusters of matches at the family level but many on the haplogroup level. 

Lineages have been provided by several yDNA test participants for inclusion on the public results page. The accuracy of the lineages have not been verified and is not guaranteed. The numbers preceding the names are generation numbers.

Haplogroup R1a1a - Group 1 Lineages

BigY-700 testing has separated the R1a McCulloch family into two distinct branches of the family using BigY SNPs (DNA changes). The two branches match each other using the 111 STR markers and cannot be separated using just the 111 STR markers.  With BigY-700 testing the two branches of the early McCulloch family can be identified. Both branches belong to haplogroup R-BY32010.

The two McCulloch branches are believed to be descended from Sir Thomas McCulloch of Myrton: one branch (Group 1a) through son Archibald McCulloch of Ardwell (killed c Jan 1499/1500) and the other branch (Group 1b) through son Norman McCulloch of Myrton (bc 1390 - dc 1482). Matches in Group 1c are matches who have not upgraded to the BigY test and cannot be placed in either branch or a new branch.

Family Tree DNA currently estimates the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for haplogroup R-BY32010 was born about 1187 CE within the range of years 860-1436 CE with a 95% confidence interval.

These test takers need to upgrade to the BigY-700 to determine whether they belong to Group 1a or Group 1b of the R1a1a McCulloch family or a currently unidentified branch. The 111 marker STR tests are insufficient for placing the R1a McCullochs on their branch of the family tree.
