Y-67 DNA RESULTS FOR R-U198 LYNNS, ETC.

© 2011,2018 John Sloan and Loretta (Lynn) Layman

R-U198 is a haplogroup within the huge R1b super-haplogroup that is ubiquitous in Western Europe.  R-U198 is much less common, generally comprising as little as 2% - 3% of the male population in the places where it is most prevalent, such as the United Kingdom.  R-U198 may in turn be subdivided.  The Lynns belong to R-DF89, which is a significant branch of R-U198.  However, they do not belong to R-DF89's largest sub-group, which we call "type G".  We have therefore used the appropriate modal values for the first line of this chart, for comparison with our Lynns.

Color Key . . .    

        

R-U198 Lynn “Motif” : A motif is a set of marker values which are significantly different from the modal values of the broader group to which a subgroup or family belongs.  Markers highlighted here in this color are
representative of "typical" R-U198 Lynn Y-DNA.  There are 4 such markers on this page (markers 1-67) and 1 on the following page (markers 68-111).

            Other Putative Ancestral Lynn Values :  We believe these may also be the ancestral values at these markers, but we do not suggest viewing them as part of the "Lynn motif" at present.
            1st new line within the R-U198 Lynn family  : DYS456 (this page). 
    2nd new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS576 (this page). 
            3rd new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS393 (this page). 

       

4th new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : CDYa-b and DYS444 (both, this page); DYS540 (next page).

       

5th new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : DYS534 (this page).

       

6th new line within the R-U198 Lynn family : YCAiia-b (this page).  However, see footnote + below.

 

"Chaff" (i.e., unhelpful sporadic mutations) : Some chaff mutations clearly happened only in recent generations and do not reflect common ancestry.

Lynn vs. Flynn:   The lack of R-U198 in Gaelic populations, and particularly its absence among those Flynns who have had Y-DNA tests, together evidence the fact that R-U198 Lynns did not derive their surname from Flynn / O'Flynn.
                              This finding is compatible with the paper trails for certain R-U198 Lynns being Ulster Scots.

* DYS534 appears to have a Lynn modal value of 14, with M.Ch.'s line having experienced a back (reverse) mutation to the R-U198 value of 15, although this scenario has yet to be proven. 

+ The YCAiib value here is believed to be a back mutation.  That is: (1) Milton's line is believed to have shared the YCAiib mutation from the R-U198 value of 22 to the value of 21 that is also found in M. Woodward's and
   Jeffrey J.'s respective lines, but (2) Milton's line is further believed to have reverted sometime more recently from 21 to 22.  While this scenario is not proven by the test results in and of themselves, it is entirely compatible
   with the known genealogy and the fact that back mutations do occur.
The scenario should be proven, or disproven, if and when additional Y-DNA matches turn up in the family line shared by Milton and M. Woodward.
