Border Reiver DNA - Top Haplotypes
This web page shows the 25 most common haplotypes in the Border Reiver DNA database,
for each of the following categories:
The chart below shows the most common 6 marker haplotypes found so far in the Border Reiver DNA
database. The markers are displayed in the standard format of scientific papers - DYS19/388/390/391/392/393.
By far the most common is the Atlantic Modal Haplotype, accounting for nearly a quarter of all haplotypes.
Other common haplotypes include the modal "North Sea Celtic" haplotype (AMH except for a DYS390 value of 23),
the proposed "Scottish" haplotype (AMH except for a DYS391 value of 10), three I1 haplotypes (including one
"Ultra-Norse" haplotype, with a DYS390 value of 23), and the "Irish Sea" haplotype (14-12-25-11-14-13).
Top 9 Marker Haplotypes (YHRD Format)
The most common haplotypes in the Border Reiver DNA database, using the original
9 markers employed by the Y Chromosome Haplotype Reference Database, appear below.
These haplotypes are expressed in the standard YHRD format:
The top haplotypes are overwhelmingly R1b, including multiple AMH variants, and a few I1.

Top 12 Marker Haplotypes (Basic FTDNA Format)
The most common 12 marker haplotypes are shown below, expressed in the basic
FTDNA format - DYS393/390/19/391/385a/385b/426/388/439/389i/392/389ii.
Top 25 Marker Haplotypes (Extended FTDNA Format)
Here are the most common "extended" haplotypes, using the 25 markers
employed by FTDNA, and expressed in the FTDNA format -
(We should note that the frequency of these haplotypes has been highly skewed by their predominance among
certain families, such as the Elliotts, the Witheringtons and others.)
