Hidden adoptions and false paternity did happen on occasion. Of the nine
known to be related males in my surname project (from prior traditional
genealogical work), one male had a completely different haplotype. Thus
he is legally related to the surname line, but biologically his Y
chromosome is not related to the progenitor of the line in the USA. See
results for Kit 3074 in my surname project website.

> My DNA Markers match only one other participant on the George Surname DNA site,and he is a known distant cousin.We descend from a common ancestor,our greatx4 grandfather Solomon George,1757-1830.We do not match any other participants,some of whom indicate a genealogical descent from a man believed to be our direct ancestor,supposedly our greatx8grandfather,Nicholas George Jr., 1625-1700.
