This web page was first mounted on December 5, 2009 by Sheila Schmutz. email@example.com and updated on November 22, 2014.
This is a private webpage that is connected to the Oliver Y DNA Project of Family Tree DNA. Please address corrections and additions to her. If you wish to correspond with other participants whose lines are shown, she will forward your message to them.
This webpage focuses only on the men who are highlighted in Pale Yellow or Group 10, among the many Oliver men who have been tested thus far. By December 5, 2009 there were 5 men who matched in this group. Four of the men have been tested at 37 markers or more and are a perfect match at all. The fifth man has been tested at 12 markers. The detailed data on their markers appears on the Oliver Y DNA project homepage under Y-DNA results.
The genealogy of the men in this group who have posted it on their FTDNA page or shared it via email are shown in the chart below.
Note that the names of the participants and their Fathers are not shown to protect the privacy of the individuals. If individuals do not wish their line to be shown at all, please contact me and I will respect your wishes, as I have done for one member of this group.
This family is also used as an example of using Family Finder or autosomal testing, which has been done by several females who descend from George Oliver.
