Background

The program yONE was used to evaluate Cowan YDNA test results available on Family Tree YDNA. The current family history for those results were used to identify likely members of the "Seven Brothers Group" of Cowans, (largely as defined by Source:Fleming, 1971). An initial run identified a suite of kits that compared favorably with each other, and were tentatively designated as "Seven Brothers Cowans". A signature for these kits was developed using the modal values of each marker. yONE was then rerun to compare the signature against all of the kits in the study. A total of 47 out of 143 kits, matched the signature using a "13%" dissimilarity criteria. That is, kits whose yONE Score were less than or equal to 13% dissimilarity when measured against the signature, were considered to be "Seven Brothers". See: Seven Brothers YDNA signature for data.


Notes

The current Cowan Project YDNA site shows 49 test subjects to be members of the "Niall of the Nine Hostages" YDNA group, as identified by FTDNA. All but two of them are members of the Seven Brothers subgroup.

1. A number of kits give results for based on a minimum (12) number of markers. A YDNA comparison based on such results is extremely unreliable for predicting similarity to other kit results. Kits testing with 12 markers may easily compare favorably with different YDNA groupings, whether those groupings are developed by conventional methods, or by use of a program such as yONE. Placement of a 12 marker kit in a YDNA group should be regarded with considerable skepticism.
