About us

The Quigley (and variants) surname project is primarily focused on Y-DNA Results with the goal being to use similar results to define family lines.The Y-DNA results pages are currently organized by the results of SAPP analyses using Y-37 to Y-111 STR results and SNPs from Big Y-700 tests. The SAPP tool, created by David Vance, can be found at his website: https://www.jdvsite.com. Quigley descendants who have taken the Family Finder test are welcome to join the project. If you visit your Family Finder >Advanced Matches page, you can identify Family Finder matches within the project. If you find Quigley matches, we encourage to do Y-DNA testing to research your Quigley paternal line. As mtDNA test results have no bearing on surnames, we do little with the results other than post them. You'll be asked to provide information on your Quigley line when you submit a Join Request. Information on your most distant known Quigley ancestor is what's most important. Although we focus on Y-DNA testing, which only males can do, women can also participate by the testing of a close male relative (father, brother, cousin, etc.), provided they are believed to be a direct male descendant of a Quigley paternal ancestor. If your testers' Y-DNA results match with Quigleys or related surnames, you are welcome to join as well as the tester is likely the product of a surname change, an adoption or a non-paternal event - but they are still of Quigley heritage.
