The Aaron Stark Family Chronicles



Y-DNA Genetic Evaluation of the Descendants Aaron Stark [1608-1685]

Home Page

Introduction Book 1: Genetic-Genealogy Report

This Genetic Project has resolved a number of genealogical issues. For example: 1) Providing genetic proof descendants of Jonathan Stark & Sarah Lacock are descendants of Aaron Stark; 2) Proving several lineages previously believed to be descendants of General John Stark of Revolutionary War fame, were actually descendants of Aaron Stark; and 3) providing genetic proof Aaron Stark was not a descendant of John Muirhead (alias John Stark) who, in 1480, saved King James IV of Scotland from the charge of a bull.

Discussion Table 5 TMRCA Calculations

This Chart plots the TMRCA Probabilities calculated in Table 5 in the Y-axis; against the generations in the X-axis. The Black curve is the result of Comparing two participants from our population that are a perfect match to the ASMH (A1a was compared to B3b). Any participants in our population who match the ASMH when compared to each other will plot the same points on the chart. The BLUE Area is the result of Plotting the Minimum and maximum Probabilities observed in our population that have a genetic distance of 1 relative to the ASMH. Each members TMRCA was calculated and presented in Table 5; each compared to A1a. The minimum plot was a comparison of A1a to A1e; while the maximum plot was a comparison of A1a to A3a.. The probabilities have small differences in value due to the mutations relative to ASMH having occurred at different DYS markers. Similarly, The GREEN area is the minimum and maximum of our population having a Genetic Distance of 2 when compared to the ASMH. The minimum plot is a comparison of A1a to B2b; while the maximum plot is a comparison of A1a to B2a. As for Genetic Distances of 1, those having genetic distances of 2 will differ due to mutations at different DYS Markers. Observe the Area has increased for GD=2 relative to the area for GD=1. This would be an expected result. As genetic distances increase, the areas created by the minimum and maximum should increase. The DARK RED curve is the result of comparing A1n to A1a; this representing the plot of one participant having a genetic distance of 3 relative to the ASMH. In our population, A1n is the only participant having a genetic distance of 3.

The webmaster is yours truly, Clovis LaFleur.  I am a volunteer and receive no financial remuneration of any kind from Family Tree DNA, nor am I one of their "web affiliates" (i.e., I don't profit from "click through's").  I'm retired and genealogy is my hobby and is not my business. As webmaster I am not responsible for the genealogy material provided by members nor am I responsible for the Test Results publicly reported by FTDNA. The analysis of results prepared and presented by me on these web pages are based on my interpretation of the Y-DNA results published and the genealogy provided by the project members. Discussion of my analysis with members and others will always be welcome.
