Similarities contained in this group -
At least half of this group has a
perfect match through the first 25 markers – some even further. Ironically,
while matching very well, there does not appear to be any connection, based
upon the kit background information submitted to date (5 of 8 in group). It

Donald Grant of Letheadry in parish of Cromdale,Strathespey, Scotland.
from a stack of notes and charts compiled by my mother some years ago, she
communicated by mail and word of mouth with many people- but her notes and
records are scattered and incomplete. The four Cuthbert's lived in Canada and
the U.S. and all had large families of 10 to 11 children. As I understand
the dna results my roots are primarily Irish/Scottish and that would be
understandable as my father’s line traces back to Scotland and my mother's
family were all from Scotland, primarily from The Isle of Mull.
