This webpage focuses only on the men who are highlighted in Teal or Group 19, among the many Oliver men who have been tested thus far. By January 2013 there were 2 men with an "Oliver" male ancestor who are a perfect match at 25 markers, match at 36 of 37 markers. The detailed data on their markers appears on the Oliver Y DNA project homepage under Y-DNA results.
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.
The men in the Teal group have the haplogroup I1. Interestingly the Oliver men in the Cyan Group 1 are also this haplogroup. Their ancestor settled in Maryland. The men in the Magenta Group are haplogroup I2b1. Their ancestors settled in the Carolinas and Georgia.
Eupedia suggests that the origin of the I1 haplogroup was in Scandinavia about 5000 years before the present time. In Europe, it is still most common in Scandinavia and Finland. (see map below) They suggest that it was likely spread by invasions of ancient Germanic tribes and the Vikings. One prominent early American with the I1 haplotype was Alexander Hamilton.
