Spearin Y-DNA Results

There are several ways to view the results:

FTDNA results (you can also view them on the FTDNA website page)

Earlier Y-DNA results for the Spearin Surname Project - this is an earlier evaluation of the project (from 2010) which includes all DNA Heritage results as well as the FTDNA results available at that time.


Additional Results from a Trawl of Public Databases

There are about 11 different companies that test for DNA. The problem is that the companies don't talk to each other and the results of their members mostly just sit on their database doing nothing. The number of people in a project can potentially be greatly enhanced by searching each company's database in turn for people with the same surname or the same haplotype. These newly found distant cousins can then be added to your own project.

Below are several useful comparisons of the Spearin data with publicly available data from other surname projects and public databases. Of particular interest, we found a Spiering who was not even close to a match, but we did find four Sperry's who came as close as a 95% match - could the Spearin's and the Sperry's be very distant cousins? These results are discussed further in the following section (Interpreting Results - Trawl of the internet for more genetic cousins)

  1. Comparative Table of results from the Spears DNA Project (see also the Speer website at http://www.speer.org)
  2. Comparative Table of results from the Spearman-Spirling DNA Project, a surname search of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMGF) database, and a surname search of the Y-search database.
  3. Comparative Table of results from a surname search of the DNA Ancestry database (in preparation).
