DNA Project Test Results
Friday Surname Haplotype Database
Last Update of This Database: May 2005, with Round 1 testing additions.
The table format shown below is used to report the DNA results of the current level of participation in the Fridig Surname DNA Project.
The May 2005 update to the content of the Fridig Surname Haplotype Database included the following changes.
The Friday Surname Haplotype Database is composed of Y-chromosome STR loci/marker systems values for individual Friday (how ever spelled) male participants that were tested at various times for the Y-chromosome markers indicated. This database will be updated as additional Friday participants are tested.

For comparison purposes, the current Fridig Surname DNA Project participants have been divided into categories (DNA Group 1 through DNA Group 9) where appropriate, with the balance of those participants who do not currently match at the end of the table. These DNA Groups will contain all the participants who have matches which indicate they have a “near term” Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA). Each DNA Group will be composed of two or more people who have no more than three marker mismatches.
The "earliest known ancestor" will also be provided for each of the participants in these nine unique DNA Groups to assist in developing the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for each of these groupings. The "earliest known ancestor" should not be confused with the "earliest proven ancestor". It is the hopes of the Fridig Surname DNA Project that one day soon our participants will fully document their genealogies and we will be able to use the "earliest proven ancestor" term with confidence.
To really be meaningful, those participants in the database who have not been grouped due to having more than three (3) mismatches with the other participants will need to wait until the Fridig Surname Haplotype Database grows with the addition of more Friday males from which hopefully we will find other FRIDAY lineages that provides fewer mismatches for their haplotype, yielding a potential common ancestor in the nearer term.
To view the analysis and conclusion statements based on the data found in this database click on the various DNA Groups 1 thru 9, that have been developed thus far from the testing and analysis, and found at the navigation bar in the upper left of this screen. There is also some additional general analysis & conclusions found at the General Conclusions page.
