The FGC11134 tree has grown in radical bounds over the year of 2014. Through the dedicated testing efforts of 65 people, the Y-DNA tree under FGC11134 has burst in to leaf. There are now 50 branches and terminal leafs shared by at least two individuals where this time last year only three existed.
On reflection this is still just the start of our exploration for the purposes of genetic genealogy. Only a handful of the terminal leafs are truly surname specific, and we still are not to the point we can definitely tie dates to branches. More testing will eventually bring us to the point where this may become more feasible.
Of interest is that A804 seems to hold significance for the Irish Type 2 Cain/Kane/Keanes. It’s been observed that some of these individuals possess an O’Donoghue-like signature. A804 indeed was found in three O’Donoghue Big Y kits and now one of the CTS4466 Kanes has Sanger tested positive for this SNP as well.
Those who would be interested in this early medieval era SNP can test for it at YSEQ. A804 is available individually or as part of the R1b-FGC11134 Panel (including CTS4466.) Doing so will help to draw an understanding when the men carrying a variation of the Catháin surname split off from those carrying O’Donoghue.
