Yellow pin = Family Finder tester. Blue pin = Y-DNA tester. Green pin = FF + Y-DNA tester. Testers who haven't identified their exact ancestral locations are shown in approximate locations.

The following table divides participants into groups depending on what we know about their haplogroups and haplotypes.

See A Basic Guide to Y-DNA Testing for Ireland Projects (PDF) for further explanations of these groups as well as the links above plus Further Reading for more scientific explanations.

Y-DNA Test Participants

Participants are grouped with their matches within the Irish haplotype category which they best match based on Jim Cullen's Haplogroup Predictor. Kits within a category match each other at some level, though so far nobody has very close matches in their relatively recent family histories.
