If your paternal line is not Jewish , comes from Ireland , western
Scotland or the Hebrides , and didn't do an Ellis Island name change,
think Viking (Norway or Denmark) and ignore the eastern Europe parallels
for your principal search. The recent article on the Ashkenazi Levites
explains that group. R1a started in Hungary, Poland,Ukraine and went
north to Sweden, west to Norway and southwest to Iceland,
Shetland,Ireland Scotland and England If the foregoing conditions
apply,your gaelicized family name was probably close to Mac Shenoig,
son of the harper.I would be interested in comparing your markers to our
Clan Donald chiefs.

I hadn't checked against the REO for some time, and was amazed at the

I am R1a confirmed by SNP.

Exact Match
Countries - Belarus, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland,
Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Romania, Russia and Unknown.

16 total matches of which by the comment section 3 were Ashkenazi or
Ashkenazi-Levite, I Uygur and 1 Native Siberian, and 10 not specified.
(2 matches each in Denmark, England and Russia, all others 1/country).

One Step mutations
Austria, Belarus, Croatia, England, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary,
Iceland, India, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Mongolia, Poland,
Romania, Russia, Shetland, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria,
Ukraine, United Kingdom, Unknown, and Uzbekistan

98 total matches of which 50 were Ashkenazi or Ashkenazi-Levite, 1
Russian, 1 Native Siberian, 1 Arab, and 44 not specified. Most frequent
matches by country: Austria 9, Belarus 6, England 6, Germany 14, Hungary
5, India 9, Lithuania 5, Poland 9, Russia 5,

The pattern is the same for 2 step mutations. For 25 markers 1 23/25
match from Ireland with my third cousin.

To conserve space I haven't included the 2 step mutation values, but it
is more of the same.

Does any one care to comment on this concordance.
