About us

Updated April 2015


PROJECT GROUPS


Whalen - O'Faolain members are grouped by their y-DNA Haplogroup,  then by Haplogroup subgroups. 

R1b is the largest y-DNA Haplogroup in the project, (and the major y-DNA Haplogroup in Ireland ), we also have Haplogroups G, I2 and J  present in small numbers.
Men of different y-DNA Haplogroups will have no likelihood of sharing a common ancestor in the last 10 thousand years (NPEs are of course a reality and may be a reason why your paper trail tells a different story.)


R1b Haplogroups are subgrouped into known "Genetic clusters" where possible, and these will be updated as new results come in.

R1b Group 01 (R-L21>DF13>CTS1751>L144/L195) - Ua Faelain of Deisi
We have one large group who share common descent from an old lineage, and are mainly from Co Laois, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary and Cork in Ireland.   They do not have close matches with any of the main Irish genetic groups. It is very likely that this group represent the Ua Faelain of Deisi.

The group share a unique value for DYS markers 413a  of 16,  whilst most R1b men have results around 21, 22 or 23.

SNP testing has shown this group to be CTS1751+ and the subgroup L144+/L195+.
Here is a Google Map with known UK place of origin for men with CTS1751+, L144+/L195+ and/or 413a=16 results;

R1b Group 02 (R-L21>DF13>FGC5494>FGC5521)  Ua Faelain of Ossory/Ossraighe

This group share close matches with Fitzpatricks from Co Laois/Kilkenny,  Brennan/Brannons, Brodericks, Carroll, Brophy, Delaney and Dalton. These surnames (except Dalton) are associated with the ancient Ossory/Ossraighe region.
A Fitzpatrick from this group has recently tested FGC5494+ and FGC5521+

R1b Group 07 (R-L21,>DF13>L513, FGC16870)
This group has a 64/67 match with Kits 53712, Patrick Whalen b 1816 Co Tipperary and 109320, Vance.
The Whalen and Vance families are undoubtedly connected by an NPE that probably occurred between 1650 and 1750 in Ireland according to MRCA calculations (90% probability of 12 generations @ 25yrs per generation). An extremely rare but shared value of 19 at dys456 along with matches from 65/67 to 63/67 with several distinct Vance families prove the intimate relationship. No known connection has been found with confirmed paper and pen genealogy going back to the early 1800's.
We hope to find more Whalen family's for this group.
