Tallman DNA Project
The goal of the Tallman DNA Project is to provide a valuable tool for genealogical research of the Tallman surname. By compiling a database of Y-DNA test results we will be able to identify the various Tallman lines. This project will give researchers an opportunity to look for a biological connection through DNA testing.
Y-DNA testing can only be performed on a direct line male descendent. The test is mailed directly to the participant from Family Tree DNA. It consists of a soft brush swab that is used to collect cells on the inside of the cheek. We are using Family Tree DNA for this project and have received a group rate. For more information on Y-DNA testing please visit Family Tree DNA's web site at: www.familytreedna.com. If you would like to join our project you may order your test kit from our surname project page at Family Tree DNA: Tallman Surname Project Link.
Some of the most common variations on this surname are: Tollman, Talman, Tolman, Tallmon, Tollmon, Talmon, Tolmon, Talama, Talaman, Talema, Taleman, Toleman, Talemon, Tolemon, Taulman, Taulmon, Taelman, Taelmon.
Any and all spelling variations are welcome to participate!

Y-DNA Test Results
NOTES: The test numbers in blue are links to abbreviated pedigrees provided by our participants and published on this site with consent.
n/a = not applicable: A 12 marker test was performed.
p = pending: Results still pending.
* Halpogroup on this test was confirmed by SNP testing by FTDNA, other Halpogroups noted are predictions by FTDNA.
May 19, 2003 FTDNA reassigned the values for 464a, b, c, and d. Lowering
each by one. These results reflect those changes.
From Family Tree DNA: "In the interest of continuing our efforts to promote standardization in this industry, we will adjust the values for all of the alleles of DYS464 down by one allele in concordance with the published nomenclature system for this locus . . . this change will have no impact in your comparison . . . because all DYS464 values will be adjusted in the same fashion."
Also from Family Tree DNA: "The markers in red have shown a faster mutation rate than the average, and therefore these markers are very helpful at splitting lineages into sub sets, or branches, within your family tree. Explained another way, if you match exactly on all of the markers except for one or a few of the markers we have determined mutate more quickly, then despite the mutation this mismatch only slightly decreases the probability of two people in your surname group who match 11/12 or even 23/25 of not sharing a recent common ancestor."
Halpogroups Information from Family Tree DNA:
Haplogroups are clusters of Haplotypes (expressed as exact or near exact 12 or 25 marker matches) that are in a tight proximity to each other. Expressed another way Haplotypes are subsets of a Haplogroup. Think of the Haplotypes as the leaves of a tree, and the Haplogroups as the limbs of a tree…in fact the Haplogroups are the limbs of the tree of Homo Sapien-Sapien—our unique branch of humanity. The Haplogroups have been crafted into what is called a Philogenetic network, and the male version can be seen here: http://www.familytreedna.com/haplotree.html.
Please note that people in different Haplogroups cannot be related within many thousands of years, and that each male test result provides a prediction of the Haplogroup currently about 90% of the time. In general the following rule of thumb may be used:
R1b Western Europe
R1a Eastern Europe
Q3 Native American
