Lineages and Results of Y-chromosome DNA Testing for Surname ELY
and Variations, such as, ELEY, EALY, EHLI, IHLI, ELE, ELI, ELA, HELY, HELE, YELLE, etc.
The Lineages and Results tables for the different haplogroups are on separate pages.

See below:  Pending Tests for New Members and List of Progenitors.
Logically, haplotypes (based on STR [short tandem repeat] testing) should correlate with haplogroups (based on SNP [single nucleotide polymorphism] testing), and they do.  The correlation between haplotypes and haplogroups allows one to deduce the haplogroup from the haplotype, without the added expense of SNP testing.  In the results tables, haplogroup designations without a corresponding SNP test are deductions based on the haplotype.  For common haplotypes, the haplogroup deductions are usually correct; for questionable haplotypes, the deductions can be wrong.  In these cases, FTDNA, as part of its "Haplogroup Assurance" policy, will conduct a "backbone" SNP test, free of charge, to securely determine the basic haplogroup. 

The "modal" haplotypes for the haplogroup subclades given in the tables are just that (i.e., the most common pattern for the subclade); there are variations from the modal pattern, and variations at non-defining markers do not necessarily rule out membership in the subclade.

SNP is treated, both in speech and in writing, as a word, "snip," not spelled out S-N-P.  "Hg" is an abbreviation for Haplogroup. NPE is the acronym for "Non-Paternity Event," meaning a hidden adoption or illicit paternity in an individual's ancestry, in particular their patrilineal line.
Viewing Tip:  hold your cursor over a linked name in a lineage.  The full names of the husband and his spouse(s) will appear in the Status Bar of your browser, assuming you have it turned on.

First results (Markers 1-12) can be expected about six to eight weeks after return of the kit, at which time the subject will be moved to one of the haplogroup results tables (i.e., as soon as the haplogroup is known).
Test kits have a long shelf life, until they're used.  Even if you've kept your test kit a long time without using it, you can still take the sample and return the kit.  If you've taken the sample, but not returned it for an extended period, please request a replacement kit.  Likewise, if the kit has been lost, either by you or in the mail, or if the kit was simply ruined in some way, just contact FTDNA or your project admin to request a replacement kit.  There is no charge for a replacement kit.
