McAninch YDNA Status Report 2016

Update on the informal 'McAninch Y-DNA project', with STR test data (37, 67, 111 markers),

the Irish Modal Haplotype (IMH), SNP tests, and Haplogroup R1b-M222 > SNP FGC19486.

Also, TMRCA (Time to Most-Recent Ancestor) calculations for both '3 McAninch's and the

larger 11-man (M222) 'focus group'. Unlike 'genealogical time' (ancestors with paper trails),

'Genetic Genealogy' works in 'DNA time', following human migrations, long before surnames,

long before international borders, and before any written records were ever created.
