Old Augusta Hays

Public data, extracted 18 June 2014 from the FTDNA Hayes YDNA project, were used to see how closely the YDNA hapotype's of the kits in the Hayes YDNA project. A proprietary program, yALL2, was used to make these comparisons, using mutation rate weighting to account for differences in the rate of mutation for different markers. The results of this analysis shows that the Hayes YDNA project at FTDNA contains 10 kits testing at 37+ shared a relatively recent common ancestor. [1][2]

The following matrix shows the "dis-similarity" between haplotypes for each and every kit in this group of ten kits. Values of "0.0%" indicate that the haplotypes for two kits are exactly the same. Increasing values of dissimilarity indicate that kits are less and less similar to each other. These data show a maximum dissimilarity of about 4%. Values like this are indicative of a relatively recent common ancestor.


Three of the kits claim descent from John Hays, who died 1750/51 in Old Augusta County Virginia. One kit claims descent from Patrick Hays also of Old Augusta.




Of the ten kits in the Old Augusta Hays group, four trace descent to either John Hays (20) or Patrick Hays (1) of Old Augusta.

Person:John Hays (20)
Person:Patrick Hays (1)

  1. The ten kits examined here, utilized 67 markers. There were additional kits that tested at 25 or fewer markers. These kits are not considered here as too few markers were tested to give confidence to the data.
  2. Note that these kits are not necessarily grouped together in the Hayes YDNA project. The grouping here is based on a somewhat different analytical approach, which is believed to provide a more accurate basis for grouping kits.
