Part 876sr – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Y-DNA Haplogroup R-L23 – Still Trying To Understand

04 August 2014

Good Day,

Yes, I am still trying to understand my Y-DNA results. And it has been sometime since I have even touched my data and information.  My current and tested Haplogroup is R-L23 (R1b1a2a).


Here’s a quick rundown. According to Max Blankfeld of Family Tree DNA, there are 23 pairs of chromosomes: 22 pairs are what we call the autosomal or the recombining DNA. The 23rd pair is the sex gene. Paternity tests use the autosomal. Those are passed from both mother and father and "mixed" into the child, whether male or female. This mixture generates a new set of 22 pairs. This is the part of the DNA that a paternity test company uses.

The 23rd and final pair, the sex gene, is transmitted to the children. A male child receives X-Y, which is the father's Y-DNA and the mother's mtDNA, while a female child receive X-X, which means only the mtDNA from the mother. The Y received by the male son, is passed on to his son.  This son receives his mother's mtDNA, not the grandmother's. So, the Y-DNA goes down the line while the mtDNA does not, and the autosomal continues to be mixed as it progresses down and through the generations...

There are two different kinds of "transmissions" between the autosomal and the sex gene. Since the Y is transmitted from father to son, to grandson, to great-grandson....practically without mutations, this is the DNA that allows us to compare two males to find out if they descend from the same line.

A male child, and that includes me, receives my Y-DNA and that is the data that is revealed from my Y-sex gene, the part of me that I get from my father, Frederick Kenneth Lloyd Smith. This would mean that all the male Smiths, including the Lloyd Smiths, the Malin Smiths, the Landreth Smiths, et al, who are descended from great-great-great-grandfather James Smith all received the same Y-DNA.
The confirmed Haplogroup is R-L23; also written as R1b1a2a.

As you can see from the two ISOGG, 2010 and 2011, our R-L23 is the “Most common European R1b”.


There is a ton of work to go through and the study of genetics continues. Because my Smith Y-DNA is of the “most common European R1b”, and apart from having the most common name in the English language, I am continuing to investigate and delve into the testing. I have had some success and have been able to match 111 markers through Family Tree DNA to three/four other surnames: Ware; High/Robinson; and Seymour/Seymer.

I will carry on digging, and I mean drilling down, as tests continue to be added. Two outstanding tests are currently slated to be completed – CTS7822 and F2863. Theirs is still one hell of a lot for me to learn. Also I need to restart my search and research for the origins of our ggg-grandfather James Smith.

Part 874bm – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – McAteer Descendant Chart – Updated

28 July 2014

Good Day,

As I progress with my search and research in family lines I like to create my own descendant charts. The following is an updated Descendant Chart for the McAteer family line that I am current exploring.

The Descendant Chart is as follows:


I use the software GenoPro which is a genealogy software assists in the creation of family trees and genograms.

You’ll notice that I have discovered a couple of ways that the surname has been put down on paper: McAteer; MacAteer; and MacKeteer. And as usual please know that this data may change as we uncover new and more documentation and information.

If you have any information and data that may assist us in this re-creation please feel to contact me, via this Blog or by email.

All-things-being-equal gg-grandfather John McAteer's occupation in 1891/2 is listed in both documents as a "Starcher". From what I can find a "Starcher" may have been a "Laundry worker who stiffened shirts and other garments with hot starch in a tumbling machine."  Six years later gg-grandfather John's occupation is registered on the 1900 US Census as "Policeman."

And the search and research continues.

Part 871bd – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – AB’s Ethnic Makeup

15 July 2014

Good Day,

Well it appears that according to Family Tree DNA’s myOrigins from the Family Finder product Andy Brunhammer and his siblings are 100% European.


The breakdown is 64% from the British Isles and 36% from Western and Central Europe. According to Family Tree DNA when referring to the British Isles, the darker blue area, the cluster is typical to the British Isles, especially Ireland. The Western and Central European, the lighter blue, cluster combines nearly all of the threads of European genetic history into one.

There is a shade of differences when the interpretation is done according to 23andMe – 99.4% European, 0.5% Sub-Saharan African, less than 0.1% Yakut, and less than 0.1% unassigned. Of course there is no indication of a margin of error based on each of the companies’ interpretation.

All-things-being-equal one has to take into account that each company has its own team of sales and marketing staff who may or may not appreciate adding the “bells and whistles” to provide a somewhat justifiable campaign to the genealogy-centric and interested public.

Andy’s Y-DNA, his Brunhammer paternal line is I2a2 (I-M423) at Family Tree DNA and I2a2b at 23andMe. His maternal mtDNA, Doherty plus, line is X2e1 at Family Tree DNA and X2e at 23andMe. Both firms basically are saying that his DNA results are the same.
