4)      Project Member Pages

Note: Be sure to visit the Marker Results Page on the FTDNA website

It is the basis of the groupings used on this website

Both the following pages have the same or similar information but Display it in different formats:






The project is divided into groups of matching or similar participants

The groups ideally are of matching individuals but

in some cases the group could be created because

the participants have similar haplogroups

There are groups comprising Barnetts, Barnards, Burnetts

and one for Barnett Cousins who no longer carry the

Barnett surname (Non Y Barnett Cousins)

How the Groups Were Formed:

There is no significance to the numbering of charts.

They were created chronologically when needed

First, everyone in the group has the same Hapogroup

Second, FTDNA provides every participant a Personal Page

On each participant’s Personal Page there is a listing ranking all matches for the participant based on Genetic Distance

The Groups on this site were created based on the Genetic Distance Supplied by FTDNA

What you see on the Groups Pages:

Within each group each individual is listed by Kit number, not by name

Named first, is the earliest proven ancestor of the participant

including the ancestor’s name, dates and places

Kit Numbers are Hyperlinked:

If a participant has submitted his lineage the Kit Number is hyperlinked

Click on the hyperlink and it will take you to the complete lineage As submitted by the participant

If A Kit Number is not hyperlinked:

The participant has not submitted his lineage and

is encouraged to do so

For answers to questions on how to submit lineages

Please contact Mic at


Participant Pages:

Each participant page includes the participant’s earliest proven ancestor, his dates and places plus a complete lineage from that ancestor down to but not including living people

The page includes the participant’s Group Name, Haplogroup and the person to contact for more information on that lineage.

Sometimes the contact person is the participant but often it is another person such as a wife, sibling, adult child or other relative

Search Engine:

The Search engine searches the whole website

Search for names, places, etc

Good for digging deeper into participant pages for information not indexed in the Categories Page


Use the drop down Category page menu

The Categories links are a cross index for the subjects of

each of the submitted participant lineages

If a participant has not submitted his lineage they are not included

Click on a Group to see a list of members of that group

Click on the name of an early proven ancestor and

See a listing of  those who have the same ancestor

Click on a location and see a listing of participants

associated with that place

Click on a Haplogroup and see a listing of those

participants with that Haplogroup
