|There can be little doubt that all of these SHEFFIELDs share a common
ancestor in genealogical time. My thanks to SHEFFIELD #123861 (top
row) for sharing his matches, which are...
It does appear the BATTLES has an NPE
in his line, especially given that he matches no one in the BATTLE
Project. Unfortunately, the BATTLE project does not display earliest
ancestor, so we don't know where these families might have been in proximity.
I would recommend the BATTLES upgrade to at least 67 markers to confirm
whether this is, indeed, an NPE.
At 12 markers, he has 64 matches, only 28 of which are 12/12. Twenty-one
of those have surname SHEFFIELD or SHUFFIELD.
At 25 markers, his number of matches drops to 13, only ten of which are
25/25. Two of the 25/25 matches are in other surnames, while the
one 23/25 match is also in another surname.
At 37 markers, his number of matches drop to ten, four of which are 37/37,
five are 36/37, and one is 35/37. All are surnamed SHEFFIELD, except
for one of the 36/37 matches, who is a BATTLES.
At 67 markers, he has just one match, namely, a 65/67 match with a SHEFFIELD,
who is #262052 above.
|For an explanation of how color is used in this table, please see my
page on Signature
Markers. In a nutshell
The cells highlighted in cyan are modal for Hg I-M253, so possessing that
value is unremarkable.
The columns of orange cells are the shared differences from the Hg I1 modal
that represent the signature markers for the family.
Anyone related to them in genealogical time would be expected to possess
most of these values.
The cells highlighted in magenta are private mutations, acquired
by the individual in his descent from their common ancestor.
The cells highlighted in bright blue and red may be branch
markers, differentiating separate branches of the family, though
one or more of them may be a private mutation. CDYa/b is one of the
more volatile markers, so the same mutation can and frequently does happen
more than once in the same family in genealogical time. The way to
tell whether the mutations are private or indicate a branch in the family
is to utilize their paper genealogy. There is an example of this
my CORBIN project scroll to far right to see how paper lineages support
that the matching mutations are true branches in the family.
