About us

People with different haplogroups are not related. Of 12 marker results, we have 10 unique haplotype strings. Thirteen (13) of the testees are in one string. This is the group referred to as "BC" for Bishops Canning. The other multiple 12-marker haplotype strings are the "Osceola" string (2 members) and the "Coonrod" string (2 members). I1a-subset, Norway I1b-subset if -Eastern Europe,Balkans,etc The Haplogroup I, I1, and I1a lineages are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe. Source: FamilyTreeDNA: If DYS19 = 14 and DYS392 = 11 then you are likely haplogroup I1a Source Ken Nordtvedt If I1a with ancestry in the British Isles and 22 at DYS390 then more likely Saxon origin. If I1a and 23 at DYS390 then more likely Norse origin Source Ken Nordtvedt RIB Indo-Eurpopean, Keltic (Celtic), Germanic. Since the majority of men of European descent belong to R1b, this group has the highest risk of so called "accidental" matches - matches due to an accidental convergence of long separated R1b lines, rather than due to recent kinship. Most different surname matches among R1b's are probably of this variety. *** #N12050-I1a-Don H. Pyle-no information *** #6884:I1a- Frank-Researching the Bishops Canning line.

G.D. of 1 from #6919 and 2 from #5912, all three of whom share DYS 437 = 17. 28200, 5912, and 6919 are the only three in the group that share this allele; the rest of the group has DYS437 = 16 (I1a) or 15 (R1b). *********** Pyle family line with DYS 389(1,2) = 12, 28; DYS447 = 21 #13451-I1a-Ron- believe that I am a descendent of Richard Piles and would like to see if this is true.

To date, this is an "orphan" line. HOWEVER...recent (12/14/07)results show Nick's father matches Ron 12/12, 24/25, and 35/37, suggesting William Pyle (b. 1775) and John Ingraham Pyle are of the same line. Their MRCA may be several generations back, but 35/37 strongly suggests that they have a MRCA within "genealogical" time, and are thus of the same Pyle line. ****************** On 25 markers- No matches. #82194-I1a-Tested-Bill (W.L.)

Kit #31495-Jack has documented his line as follows: Earliest documented ancestor: Henderson Pile/Pyle, born Nov. 21, 1819 in Fentress Co., TN., m. Dorothea Westbrooks, Petersburg, VA., Jan. 21, 1840, place unknown,>Mathew, 1848 WI, Henry, 1871 IA>OR. #7139-Stephen-line is traceable back to Conrad/Coonrod Pile of Tennessee (1766-1849), but the path gets murky prior to that. #144398 - Michael Evans. Biological father Robert Howard(?) Pyle, b. ca. 1917 (IA?). a 12/12 match to #31495 and #7139, so very likely his father is descended form the Coonrod line. An upgrade to 25 or 37 markers would help clinch the case for this hypothesis. ******************** #95790, K.G. Pyle.
